The Innovators Issue: Junya Ishigama's genre-busting architecture, Sidewalk Labs and the future of the city, and more!

Teknion’s new showroom is situated in Atlantic Station, a huge urban redevelopment on the former brownfield site of the Atlantic Steel mill. It’s home to residences, retail shops and design studios. And it’s now also home to the newest space to view Teknion products and systems.

To create the light-filled space, Vanderbyl Design transformed an L-shaped building that felt cavernous despite its soaring ceilings. Working with Tvsdesign, they focused on keeping the palette clean and simple, while making a few bold gestures. White pleated walls, complemented by similarly textured screens for a multilayered effect, are used throughout to lend a sculptural quality and a subtle play of light. Glazed room enclosures maximize the natural sunlight, helping the interior to achieve a LEED-CI gold rating.

Most important, the showroom excels at showing off Teknion’s own collection: the glass-enclosed offices are realized with Altos and Optos architectural walls, and a gridded storage unit shows off the manufacturer’s diverse line of chairs in a display worthy of a design gallery.
