Haworth’s Integrated Palette is a grouping of product lines that stem from our extensiveresearch, vast knowledge, and countless global influences. With this set of cards,we’re pleased to share the details of this strategy and give a brief overview of theunique design and engineering behind the industry’s only truly integrated and fullyadaptable kit of parts. Within these cards, you’ll find the seven design logicsthat inform our Integrated Palette, an introduction to the kit-of-parts, and highlights ofthe customer advantages that result from this strategy. Integrated Palette helps to createan integrated, adaptable, and more sustainable workspace.
What is Integrated Palette?
Haworth’s Integrated Palette stems from years of research that indicatedupcoming changes in how people work, where they work, and evolvingorganizational cultures. Since that time, in early 2004, we’ve made aconcentrated and continued effort to expand from a furniture provider toa provider of complete interior spaces. By infusing our product designsusing seven key design logics, and combining our human, organizational,and facility performance understanding, we created a tremendousdifferentiator for Haworth—a family of platforms that are truly moreintegrated, more adaptable, and more sustainable.The Integrated Palette allows Haworth to provide our customers withdesign freedom, a promise of integration, and future assurance.
DESIGN FREEDOMOPEN-ENDED PLANNING.THERE’S NO BLUEPRINT LIKE YOUR OWN BLUEPRINT.THE DESIGNER IS THE MASTER ARTIST.
The Integrated Palette allows for a wide range of Design Freedom—fromtraditional applications to unconventional, and anywhere in between. Usingvarious components from different product lines that integrate creates theability for the designer to have endless possibilities and true design freedom.Pieces can be moved, swapped, and rearranged, allowing customers to focuson a design that works for today, knowing that change for future needs andevolving workstyles will be simple to carry out.The integrated kit of parts also makes available unique combinations, and offersboundless potential to pursue distinctive layouts.
PROMISE OF INTEGRATIONPRODUCT PLATFORMS THAT INTEGRATE AND COORDINATE.OTHERS ONLY COORDINATE .
To carry out our Promise of Integration, Haworth carefullyconsidered the future of building construction, design principles, work styles,and organizational cultures when designing a holistic kit of parts. Like thearchitectural pieces and furniture we produce, each of the variables above mustcome together in the right way to have a positive effect on performance.Unlike other manufacturers that coordinate their offerings to match only visually,Haworth product platforms are engineered across seven design logics (Part 2),creating true integration that provides limitless opportunities for new spatialdesigns, as well as future adaptability with the same products.
FUTURE ASSURANCETIMELESS DESIGN AND UNPARALLELED QUALITY MAKEFOR LASTING PARTNERSHIPS.
Haworth’s Integrated Palette offers not only a sound investment with unparalleledquality, but it also represents Future Assurance. This comes from buildinga long-term partnership. Haworth’s future product development will follow thesame product design strategy, assuring your furniture and architectural interiorassets will serve even more application needs over time. This approach will furtherease space reconfigurations by broadened application possibilities, savingmoney, waste, and downtime.
1 Visual LogicComplementary to other product, the space, and the building. Timeless beauty.
1Visual Logic relates to the individual products beingvisually appropriate and complementary, and more importantly, they canbe used to create a coherent visual landscape. All products look like theywere designed concurrently, while remaining timeless and providing theright mix of mass, scale, and proportion at the floorplate level.
2Interface LogicPerfect fit within the built environment.
2Interface Logic defines how the products relate tothe built environment. Interior architecture elements are consideredwhen our products are developed to leverage the connection to a raisedfloor and ceiling, or any built structure in between.
3Interconnectivity Logic defines howthe products connect to each other between and across platforms.Shared products have a common connection to ensure easy adaptabilityacross platforms.
4Dimensional Logic The right scale matters.
4Dimensional Logic defines the dimensionalconsistency between product platforms. Common dimensions ensurefurniture, systems, and architectural products are compatible with oneanother for ease of application. Variation in scale and the progressionfrom one scale to another is critical to make certain the space capturesa changing rhythm and visual interest, yet feels consistent.
5 Planning LogicProduct platforms combineacross space to becomestunning, effectiveworkspaces.
5Planning Logic defines a consistent, coherent, andintelligent relationship when multiple product platforms are appliedtogether. Features include an open-frame panel for both on-modularand off-modular planning, a wide array of planning configurations bycombining various platforms, and the ability to span various elevations.
6 Materials LogicWhat we use to buildour products makes abig difference in quality,performance, andsustainability.
6Materials Logic defines the continuity of materialsbetween product platforms, clarifying strategic distinctions and overlap.This logic encompasses Design for Environment (dfe) strategies that ensurethe degree of sustainability that all products will possess or attempt toachieve. Forward-thinking toward reclaiming/reusing/recycling ensuresmaterials are as sustainable as possible, while retaining superior performance.
7 Finish LogicChoose your look, and make it yours.
7Finish Logic defines the scope and rationale for finishselection and specification. A simplified offering of basic elements likewood, glass, fabric, and laminates can be combined to create a rangeof visual “moods.” Finishes between product platforms are consistentin availability and longevity, and the compatibility of finishes acrossproducts eases the specification process.
