1. Axon Tables – The conference table rethought as a networked hub of connectivity

Axon Tables were designed with the A&D person in mind—and also the IT person, the AV integrator, the facility manager, and the people who use the table.
With Axon Tables, we approached the idea of simplicity holistically. Naoto Fukasawa and Keiji Takeuchi not only created a beautifully clean design with an incredibly intuitive interface, but Geiger also went a step further to make the process of specifying, ordering, and installing Axon Tables as simple as possible as well.

2. Leeway Seating – Chairs and stools that offer maximum freedom in a minimal footprint

With Leeway Seating, Keiji Takeuchi set out to design seating that maximizes freedom of movement within a minimal footprint. To achieve this, he leveraged Geiger’s strength in woodcraft to create a crescent-shaped, cantilevered backrest, which supports elbows while accommodating the side-to-side movements people make while socializing or collaborating.

3. Bespoke Case-goods – Geiger case-goods lay the foundation for custom-crafted executive spaces

Custom-crafted case-goods celebrates everything that makes Geiger case-goods unique in one beautiful setting. A medley of materials, functionality, including height adjustable services, technology support, and custom-manufactured demonstrate Geiger’s prowess in customizing products for clients by addressing the functional needs of the person at work while incorporating exquisite materials and impeccable finishing.

4. Reframe Lounge Furniture – Refined comfort for working lounge areas

BEST OF NEOCON 2018 - Editors’ Choice Award - Lounge Furniture Collection

Reframe lounge seating addresses a need among architects and interior designers for more options to help them realize the potential of working lounge areas. Once workers are introduced to comfortable settings that support casual collaboration in the workplace, they tend to be drawn to them — to the point where they become the most popular settings in the office.

5. Canvas Vista – Designed by Joey Ruiter, this system makes small workstations feel big, and gives people the chance to personalize their workspaces.

Canvas Vista has a trim design, freeing up space that can be used to add either people or diverse settings. It provides compression without compromise, giving people all they need in a space they can personalize. Part of the Canvas Office Landscape platform, Vista gives organizations a refined way to furnish offices and express their character.

7. Overlay – Bring clarity to the open office with Overlay, a system of movable walls designed by Ayse Birsel and Bibi Seck.

A system of freestanding, sub-architectural walls, Overlay brings new functionality to the open floorplan. It takes only a few hours and a few people to move an Overlay space from one location to another in the floorplan, allowing it to function as one space today and serve a totally different purpose tomorrow. Overlay’s quiet aesthetic can be turned up or dialed down—outfitted with a variety of textiles, laminates, glass, white boards, or custom materials—to reflect the character of an organization.

8. Cosm – Sit in Cosm, and you just might forget you’re sitting in a chair at all.

9. Lino – Designers Sam Hecht and Kim Colin found inspiration in constraint while designing Lino, a chair that lives at the nexus of comfort and value.

A new ergonomic task chair at the nexus of comfort and value, Lino brings scientifically backed comfort and a wide range of aesthetic options to the workplace or home. Everyone should enjoy a well-designed, comfortable chair while they work, and Lino helps make that possibility a reality. Designed by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin.
