Volker™ is the new town square – a lighthearted, simple, smart design that fits readily into any work or learning space to draw people together. Launching first as part of this new product line by AIS are the Volker™ cubes and nesting tables.
Volker™ cubes are visually and functionally at ease in a variety of applications; they’re equally suited for impromptu gatherings in the office, as guest seating in workstations, in schools and other learning environments, and in casual waiting areas. The 18-inch fully upholstered cubes on casters roll where users need them to go.
The accompanying square-shaped stationary table doubles as a work surface for collaboration and as an “anchor spot” to discreetly stow the cubes when not in use.
Volker™ is named for one of its product designers, Volker Braun, who is AIS’s plant manager for casegoods.
“We designed Volker to instantly befriend people and to add a touch of levity to spaces,” Braun said. “The practical side of Volker is found in its comfort and flexibility so people can do their best work.”
Volker™ cubes are offered in a variety of fabric options and can be specified easily with a range of materials, including the new Camira Blazer wool upholstery line. Volker™ tables feature 18 laminate finish choices.
“Volker delivers no-nonsense design in a friendly, collaborative solution with an efficient footprint. The simple geometry is comfortably executed for impromptu meetings and social gatherings,” noted Bill Stewich, AIS executive vice president of product development. Stewich collaborated with Braun to design the product line.
Produced at AIS’s Massachusetts-based manufacturing facility and headquarters, the Volker™ cubes and nesting tables can ship three weeks from initial order.
