Kimball Creates Dynamic Vertical Surfaces with Work|Able

Kimball announced today the launch of Work|Able; a solution that creates the ability to take a wall or space that once wasn’t utilized and give it purpose. With the increasing importance of open-plan environments, Work|Able was designed as a forward-thinking solution with increased features that easily integrates with technology. 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. With materials like pegboard, chalkboard, cork, and PET, unique work tools, accessories and work surfaces, the aesthetic is simple and honest, yet effective and progressive. 
“One of the things we wanted to do with Work|Able was to increase the range of expression,” Graham stated. “I wanted to create something that a designer can tailor to a corporate look, as well as a contemporary or progressive look. I want them to think of it as a kit of parts that can be used over and over on different projects by dialing the look and the feel up or down depending on what the expression is.”
As teams and workloads continue 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.” Designed with full functionality in mind to maximize wall space and integrate into the open plan, Work|Able takes a modern approach with honest materials with simplicity in design that facilitates collaboration and opens up a whole new way of leveraging the wall. In addition, Work|Able integrates workstations into the wall by hanging surfaces at low, standing or work surface height off the traxx. Unique work tools, shelves and accessories can be added to support everyday work. Acoustic softness combined with a personal level of materiality, tactile and differentiation creates an engaging application within the larger environment.
