Kimball Creates Sophisticated Design with a Feeling of Comfort and Warmth

As a world-class design-driven company, Kimball applies its rich heritage as makers to create environments for tomorrow’s workplace, crafting a truly authentic brand experience that fosters community and collaboration. Featuring curated concepts in workplace design with a focus on relaxation, comfort and wellness, the company’s Chicago showroom, located just outside the Merchandise Mart at 325 North Wells Street, featured key product solutions and during Neocon, North America’s largest design exposition for commercial interiors.
 
The Kimball Chicago Showroom illuminated with sophistication in design, exuding comfort and warmth as viewed through the lens of experience and knowledge of design and culture. Our emphasis on uniquely curated products created an inviting, comfortable space that is personal, relaxing and authentic. A more tranquil, welcoming environment is paramount to the physical and mental wellness of employees in the workplace. By creating a sense of sophisticozy™, our showroom embodied a feeling of happiness and comfort, sparking creativity and intellect.
 
“With our continued desire to be human-centered, purpose-driven, and modern, we create flexible and relevant environments that provide users a space they enjoy while having choices in furniture and technology applications to better support the changing nature of workplace activities,” states Wendy Murray, Director of Product and Brand at Kimball. “Health and wellness are essential to engagement and productivity. That’s why we have a continued commitment to not only be a company that focuses on innovation, knowledge, and adaptability, but also one that is committed to well-being, offering products and solutions that provide comfort and encourage movement.”
 
Our 2019 showroom featured designs that inspire, spaces that provide comfort and well-being, and a focus on people with the goal of creating warmth and happiness in the workplace. In addition, we celebrated our design partnerships with Claudio Bellini, Pam Light and John Duffy and Brian Graham in co-creating and bringing to life their designs that focus on bringing comfort, organization and design centric solutions into the workplace.
 
The Kimball showroom showcases focused, social and interactive space, along with activity based working areas. One of the newest product features in the space, Debut, is a private office solution that supports the modern workplace with acoustic wall and privacy panels that provide both function and aesthetic. Work|Able, is a new wall solution that maximizes space, creates an engaging application with acoustic softness and a personal level of materiality, tactile and differentiation.
 
New seating collections include Whittaker, an elegant, timeless lounge offering that combines light and slender volumes with a sophisticated industrial aesthetic in both modular and stand-alone seating. New chairs, Nate and Natty, blend appealing style with comfort and versatility, providing a welcome new arrangement to today’s work and health landscapes.  Niles is a natural choice for furnishing office, meeting and conference spaces with a timeless style and is available in classic black or ivory with a chrome base.
 
The latest offerings from Kimball Health include Aiden, a height adjustable, mobile clinician table that allows for greater patient interaction. Whittaker Health’s comfort and style, along with limitless configurations, meet the rigid requirements of today’s healthcare landscapes with both function and cleanability. Enhanced offerings include Wilder, with warmth and sophistication the collection has been expanded to include a rocker, loveseat and ferrule options and our popular Tucker seating offering is expanding to include a guest, bariatric, patient, and hip chair.
 
“Now more than ever, the lines are blurring between work and home. A comfortable ambiance and healthy environment in the office is expected. Evoking a forward-thinking approach to products and solutions, we are changing the nature of workplace activities by creating environments that provide comfort and foster well-being in a space that makes everyone feel welcome and at home,” concludes Murray.
