Knoll’s A3 System Workstation
If our increasingly nomadic workforce wants to be sprung from the corporate monotony of cubicles, shouldn’t the solution be, maybe, a tented city? That’s exactly what large-scale installations of the A3 workstation will look like.
Knoll and Asymptote developed the A3 as an “anti-cube,” utilizing new rendering processes to produce forms that are free of Cartesian restraints. The overhead storage unit—based on the overhead storage bin of an airliner—is a wry comment on the designers’ globetrotting ways. All the details are similarly clever and every form is soft and easy to the eye and hand.
