In an era where athleisure wear and denim dominate our closets, it may seem that formal attire has all but left the workplace. But a well-fitted suit never goes out of style. For more formal office spaces, Keilhauer’s latest launch, designed by long-time collaborator EOOS, offers an aptly dressed-up solution. And just like its name suggests, the Tailored collection, which debuted at NeoCon 2023, feels contemporary and refined — but never stuffy.
Featuring four product families that range from conference seating to occasional tables, Tailored was conceived to be effortlessly mixed and matched to curate cohesive and functional workspaces. “With this collection, the idea was to design something warm and sophisticated by having furniture archetypes as the starting point — one product in each category for the different rituals in the office,” says EOOS. “You will find different scales, footprints and functions — but with one language throughout all the products. Tailored is one comprehensive collection for all kinds of workplace scenarios.”
Take Symm, for instance: the hero product of the series. A modern take on the timeless tuxedo sofa, the modular offering also includes a complementary low-back lounge chair, a side chair and occasional tables. Elevated with premium details, the sofa simplifies a classic design with just one cross seam per cushion. With the choice of either wooden or aluminum feet, Symm easily adapts from casual to corporate environments.
The lounge and side chairs boast a hexagonal seat shape that allows workers to sit and move around freely, with the same tailored cross-stitching detail. The corresponding occasional tables feature Cambria quartz tabletops in rectangular, circular or square models to suit any space. Meanwhile, the sculptural Fold table family is another well-matched pairing for Symm seating, and is available in diamond, square and side table configurations with exposed edging.
The equally versatile Swav series can make the leap from the boardroom to the office kitchen. Designed for everyday meetings, the mid-back conference chair offers an air of rich luxury and simple modernism. Its integrated-but-visible support shell and framed back detail add a sophisticated textural element while allowing for combo-cover upholstery (a scaled-down low-back version with a thinner side profile and classic loop arms is also available).
The Swav armless lounge chair, counter and bar stools feature the same signature design elements, with lightweight minimalist silhouettes that appear to float on their wooden frames. Like the Symm family, the pieces are unified by their clean lines and refined grid-stitched detailing.
Though designed to work together, the products within the Tailored collection can hold their own. The elegant Neesh lounge chair, for instance, has all the makings of a design classic. Crafted for comfort and concentration, the chair’s roomy yet cozy form envelops the user, while its walnut or ash base adds a touch of warmth to any office. Together, the Tailored collection caters to every need in the contemporary workplace, delivering both functionality and high style.
