Teknion Corporation has entered into an alliance with Gus* Design Group, a Toronto-based design company and creator of Gus* Modern contemporary residential furniture also suited to contract settings.
“This new business alliance with Gus* Design Group will be a great fit for Teknion and our Studio TK brands,” said David Feldberg, Teknion president and CEO, in a press release. “Gus* Modern furnishings complement our brand portfolios, and provide Teknion customers with an expanded offering of the increasingly popular ancillary products so important to the success of today’s more relaxed, collaborative work environments.”
Gus* Design Group designs and makes “soft-contract” furnishings, which consist of upholstered seating, dining, lighting, accessories and accents. Through Teknion’s collaboration with Gus*, customers are now able to access a curated selection of sofas, chairs, ottomans and occasional tables through Teknion’s North American dealer distribution network.
“Teknion believes that soft-contract furnishings bring balance to the workplace, acting as a counterpoint to the rigor of high-performance work tools and supporting work cultures that prioritize human needs and desires,” said Steve Delfino, VP of corporate marketing and product management.
Matt Parass, managing partner at Gus* Design Group, added that the collaboration allows the company to further enrich planning possibilities for architects, designers and facilities managers of contemporary workplaces.
