On March 1, 2016, Innovant relocated its Bay Area showroom to the 49 Geary Art Gallery Building in the heart of downtown San Francisco. This move stems from Innovant’s recent growth on the West Coast and the need for presenting products in a space more consistent with Innovant’s brand.

The new Bay Area address is:
49 Geary Street, Suite 411
San Francisco, CA 94108

The showroom has been furnished with Innovant’s latest benching products, including the award-winning adjustable height FORm_office™ line and the trendy yet sophisticated NIGEL Desking line. Innovant’s market-leading huddle room furniture and next generation private office and conference products are also on display.

In addition to this showroom change, Innovant recently relocated its corporate offices in New Canaan. This new address is: 21 Locust Avenue, Suite 2D, New Canaan, CT  06840. All of Innovant’s phone numbers will remain the same. Innovant will also continue to operate its showroom in New York, NY and Chicago, IL.

Makers: Innovant

by Rob Kirkbride 

Innovant is well known for its highly technical desking and height adjustable table products. Its FORm_office is a standard for many of the top financial firms in New York and beyond…

With the understanding that not everyone needs such a high performance, highly technical product, Innovant is launching NIGEL, a new product line that features a modern, yet classic design that is still suitably sophisticated and simple to specify. 

It has a lightweight appearance because of its slim frame and lack of hardware, giving it a residential feel. It certainly does not replace the company’s hit FORm_office line, rather enhances it by giving customers other options. NIGEL works well for customers seeking Innovant’s design methodology – clean, intelligent and tailored products – who do not have the high-level technology management needs. 

Its design draws upon the Parsons Desk frame, with a quick assembly, knock-down design for easy transportation and rapid installation or reconfiguration. While FORm_office is a perfect fir for financial firms where a trader might have eight computer screens and a high need for technology integration, NIGEL is suited for technology, media, real estate and design firms. Customization comes through material selection or adapted storage and privacy accessories… 

“There are many clients who come to Innovant who don’t need that horsepower [of FORm_office] under the hood,” said Bruce Wells, director of marketing and development. “They are looking for our sensitivity to design and want all the unique, client-driven features and detailing, but don’t necessarily need the level of engineering that comes with FORm_office.”

It is a similar approach to what car maker Tesla is doing – drawing in trendsetting and influential customers with its top -of-the-line model and offering models with less features later. Still, Wells insists that NIGEL is not a step down from Innovant’s commitment to quality. Instead, it is a different product for a different set of customer requirements…

NIGEL hopes to [further] open up Innovant products to a new category of customers… The company has quietly emerged from the New York financial market and has been gaining traction in other sectors… The company continues to branch out from there.

Innovant's Open Plan Office Products Now on Display at Brookfield’s Innovative DesignHive in Los Angeles

Innovant’s FORm_office Adjustable Height, FORm_AV, PRIVATE_office, and new NIGEL Desking products will be on display at DesignHive in Gensler’s innovative spec suite. 

DesignHive is a forward-thinking spec suite design project introduced by Brookfield to meet the changing needs of modern space users. Six leading Los Angeles architectural firms have designed 3,500-4,500 suites that showcase a next generation work environment. Each of the six suites are geared toward a specific industry, including creative, tech, media, financial, legal, and professional services. DesignHive not only serves as an experiential idea generator for those exploring progressive workplace solutions, but also offers immediate leasing and move-in opportunities for smaller tenants.

Gensler’s DesignHive suite is geared towards the legal industry. With the practice of law undergoing a fundamental transformation in the way work is acquired and done, the need for faster and more agile law firms has emerged. This means that the law office of the future will likely be smaller, flexible, more collaborative, and technology enabled. In order to adapt to these future needs and work styles, the key is to build flexibility into today’s legal workplace. Gensler’s DesignHive suite, furnished with Innovant’s open plan office products, exhibits the flexibility that’s needed for a smooth transition into the law office of the future.

This progressive work environment can be seen at the Wells Fargo Center-South Tower, located at 355 South Grand Avenue on Bunker Hill. For more information about Innovant or its products, please visit http://www.innovant.com.

Introducing NIGEL, Innovant’s Beautiful New Desking Product

Innovant has expanded its selection of open plan workstations with the launch of NIGEL Desking.

This new product line features a modern, yet classic design that is both sophisticated and simple to specify. Characterized by a lightweight appearance due to its slim frame and lack of hardware, NIGEL evokes a residential feel in the workplace.

NIGEL is the perfect solution for clients seeking Innovant’s trademark design methodology – clean, intelligent and tailored products – who do not have high-level technology management needs. With a profile that draws upon the universally admired Parsons Desk frame, NIGEL’s quick assembly, knock-down (KD) design allows for efficient transportation, rapid installation and/or reconfiguration.

Available in a variety of colorful finishes, NIGEL allows designers and clients to achieve a signature aesthetic. Collaborative and mobile office workers across different industries - from technology to media, or real estate and design – can also personalize their space with distinctive storage and connectivity features. Whether through unique material selection or adapted storage and privacy accessories, NIGEL can be tailored to suit any client’s needs.

“We created NIGEL in response to our specifier partners who wanted a product with Innovant’s sensitivity to design and user-centric features, but on a lighter scale than our other product lines,” explains Bruce Wells, Director of Marketing & Development at Innovant.

Consistent with all Innovant products, NIGEL delivers a minimalist aesthetic with intelligent and purposeful features that can be easily tailored to meet the requirements of every project.
