Judge's comments:

Workplace furniture with soul. The judges praised Alter’s design that strikes a beautiful balance of emotive materials, quality manufacturing process and an aesthetic that firstly plays homage to the furniture icons of past, yet finds its own and unique place in the competitive world of workplace furniture.


Alter is designed by New Zealand designer Scott Fitzsimons, in collaboration with design and manufacturing brand, Zenith. The Alter collection is designed with people at the very centre. The result of an in-depth research project, Alter explores themes of technology, human interaction, and emotional comfort, and the importance those factors have on how we experience the modern work environment.
