Design Story

A kit of parts with honest materials that can be used in a multitude of ways, shape or form.

There are a lot less walls in the workplace today. With teams and workloads continuing to grow, we’re being challenged to maximize every inch of space. Now, more than ever, the walls and surfaces need to do more “to earn their place”. San Francisco designer, Brian Graham, partnered with Kimball to create a solution that leverages the wall and makes it as functional as it can be. As real estate continues to shrink, smaller enclaves and tight spaces are becoming incredibly valuable. With the increasing importance of open-plan environments, Work|Able creates the ability to take a wall or space that once wasn’t utilized and give it purpose.

“I am very excited about Work|Able being applied in so many different scenarios,” Graham explained. “From something as intimate as making the space between your worksurface and your overhead a lot more functional, to allowing your opposite wall to grow in scale. The possibilities are endless with this solution.”
