Okamura Introduces Alt Piazza, a Shared Space Furniture Collection, at NeoCon 2017
New collection of seating, bars and counters takes a manufacturer’s approach to creating café style work environments—with modularity and reliability in mind.
CHICAGO—Leading Japanese office furniture manufacturer Okamura creates a casual, collaborative furniture collection Alt Piazza as a secondary workspace. The collection aims to broaden office appeal and support a wider array of employee needs.
Alt Piazza environments intend to support the emerging workforce which highly values open, shared space and collaborative environments. The main counter has easy-access power outlets under the edge of the tabletop, providing ancillary support and keeping the ground neat and free of cords. The two-tiered bench forms a welcoming semi-circle and easily accommodates increases in group size.
The wood grain laminates mimic the authentic aesthetic and texture of solid wood, emulating a residential essence with the durability and reliability of a standard laminate. The homelike furniture creates an approachable environment, in which people are comfortable to share more ideas and explore new collaborations.
The collection includes bars, cabinets, counters, tables, stools, soft seating, curved and straight modular benches, and several accessories in several heights and sizes. The breadth within the product line and modular components empower designers to create unique spaces.
