Conceived by Primo Orpilla of Studio O+A and developed with the design team at Kimball, Canopy moves beyond conventional open plan benching to give each user a versatile work tool that changes according to the needs of the moment. While this product will fit into any open plan, it may be modified to give the user more acoustical and visual privacy as needed.

Variety is a key feature of the concept— the balance between collective and individual needs, collaborative and solitary work, the dictates of the morning and those of the afternoon. Canopy seamlessly combines utility with unexpected materials–exposed plywood edges, colorful work tools, wood truss accents, natural wool felt and a unique bungee display system–to create spaces that not only function, but inspire.

Design Story

About Studio O+A

Primo Orpilla and Verda Alexander are the award-winning co-founders of Studio O+A, the San Francisco design firm responsible for groundbreaking offices at Facebook, Microsoft, Aol, Yelp, Samsung, Zazzle, Levi Strauss, and many other companies. A leader in the field of workplace environments with an emphasis on “democratic design,” O+A’s expansive, open-plan offices have become a signature look for some of the country’s most forward-thinking tech innovators.

If there is a single direction to the many currents of innovation that have flowed through workplace design in the last few years, it is the search for a workplace that liberates people to work the way they want. Open plan freed the office worker from the confinement and isolation of cubicle farms, but the limitations of open plan are now beginning to surface, and the need for a workstation adaptable to a variety of work styles is apparent.

Canopy meets that need.

"Canopy’s flexibility, high functionality and malleability was designed to address today’s demanding workplace needs. It is a response to how we work today. With its simple assortment of accessories, it gives users a high degree of customization. Canopy is an incredibly adaptable system that can be configured to meet the ever-changing needs of a wide range of end users."
