Habitat is a light, flexible and modular furniture system. A simple kit-of-parts that can be expanded on and quickly adapted to accommodate a range of office needs and individual working styles - an opportunity to create your own “Habitat”.

A retreat to a quiet space for concentrated work is key to unlocking balance and productivity.
Equally as important to this are spaces that promote connection. Habitat provides both! Habitat is a high-performing furniture system made from lightweight panels and seating modules. It can be assembled into a range of micro-environments to suit individual workplace needs, from focus pods, processing areas to collaborative zones.

Habitat features:

Modular construction - made up of a kit of high-quality panels and aluminium rails, Habitat is fully customisable to any configuration to optimise focus and connection.

Made from 100% sustainable products - Habitat panels are made from Autex Cube and contain a minimum of 60% previously recycled polyester fibre ( PET bottle-flake) - which equates to 53, 600ml plastic bottles per panel. This environmentally-friendly outcome was achieved through meticulous material selection, which makes Habitat a light footprint solution and an eco-friendly choice for a workplace.

Quality acoustics for better focus - Habitat is fabricated from specially formulated and sustainable acoustic materials to provide acoustic absorption of 9 square metres per unit (9 metric Sabins). A high-performing solution that provides an essential barrier between thinking space and open-plan office activity.

Easily assembled and relocatable - One person can safely install a Habitat in under 30 minutes with minimal tools, no heavy lifting and less disruption to a working office. The system is easily deconstructed for ease of relocation or expansion.

New Zealand designed and manufactured.

Small details make a huge difference to a workspace. Habitat offers seamless connectivity for desktop accessories with pop-up power and data built into the desk modules. The panel extrusions double up as a rail for accessories such as a convenience hook and adjustable lighting mounts. The panels and rails are also available in a wide range of colours to suit personal tastes for further customisation.

Habitat has been designed to capitalise on space so that you can add more panels, change configurations or relocate easily without fuss. The lightweight materials mean it is an easy-to-carry, reconstructable kit of parts. Habitats' shared wall ability reduces material content whilst still retaining flexibility and adaptability.
