by our research and design team, led by the Chief Creative Designer, who is also the Founder of the company.
We have undertaken projects for LinkedIn, Qualcomm, American Express. LinkedIn understands the importance of their employees wellbeing and happiness, which leads to good productivity at work.
Hence, they embraced the concept of activity based workplace, which encouraged their employees to be active and move while working. They called for a design submission of a new type of workstation, thatencouraged collaboration but also retained privacy for high concentration tasks.
Bristol R&D team studied the case and designed a new concept solution, which was brought to life as ELEVATE, a sit to stand desk system with independently moving panel and desks, ultimately giving each employee freedom to adjust their postureand privacy while working. Collaborate with open desk? Or elevate all the panels for a high concentration workplace.
Bristol won the competition and completed the project from design to delivery in a monumental 11 week deadline. Our manufacturing facility in Malaysia is an ISO 14001:2015 certified factory, and we adhere to a strict environmental management system throughout the manufacturing process
down to discarding our waste in compliance with recycling regulations and standards. Our products are also designed with the environment in mind. Pre and post recycled materials are used in each product, and its high modular components enable maximum reusability for end users in any future layout changes. We pride ourselves in designing products that stand the test of time, so that less will go into the landfill.
