by Brianna Crandall — June 10, 2020 — Contract furniture manufacturer Spec Furniture announced several new product offerings during this month’s NeoConnect, the virtual version of the NeoCon commercial interiors show held annually in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. The products are highlighted below.
Parkdale collaborative worktable
Spec’s new Parkdale collaborative table comes with either a single tabletop, or a split top with a 3” gap. The gap in the latter accommodates clip-on power modules throughout the entire length of the table, acting as an integrated channel for wire management, and it has the capability to mount tablescreens and other dividers.
The Parkdale table is available in three different heights, up to four different widths, and a range from 72” to 216” lengths, and in square, rectangle and round tabletop shapes. And like all other Spec products, finishes are “unlimited,” with 76 base finish colors, and any laminate or veneer of choice.
The design allows for seats on all sides of the table.
The Parkdale table is shipping on September 1, 2020.
Tailor Serpentine configurable lounge seating
Since its launch at NeoCon in 2017, the Tailor Lounge Seating line has been highly successful, says the company. Tailor is versatile on many levels; a choice of 76 frame finishes and unlimited upholstery options make Tailor a suitable choice for healthcare, corporate, collaborative, and educational spaces.
The line is designed to be configured and reconfigured with ease, and with all units shipping fully assembled, the installation is said to be quick and easy. The collection until now included freestanding, modular, banquette-style and heavy-duty seating, as well as benches.
This year, Spec is adding three new Tailor Serpentine models to the collection that will enable specifiers to add curves and create attractive seating layouts for any space: a concave chair, a convex chair, and a curve-agnostic bench. The new line is designed to work seamlessly with the Tailor Modular line, with about a dozen connecting tables options.
Tailor Serpentine is shipping on September 1, 2020.
Hardi healthcare club-style lounge chair
From mental health and psychiatric facilities to hospitals, waiting rooms and other healthcare settings, Spec says it has “furnished countless environments with products that have safety at their core and warmth in their style.”
The Hardi line, introduced three years ago, has grabbed the attention of some of the largest hospital systems in the country, says Spec. With a beautiful aesthetic, this one-piece roto-molded chair is designed to be a breeze to clean and extremely robust. The collection, designed by Mike Shields, includes a lounge and dining chair, rocker and stool.
This year, Spec introduces two new models driven by customer demand: smaller-scale child- and adult-sized lounge club chairs to help create comfortable and flexible family areas. The Club Chair creates a seamless transition between armrests and the back, reducing ligature risk.
Like other designs in the Hardi Series, the club chair is available in six nature-inspired color tones — and it can be ganged together or fastened to the floor.
The Hardi Club Chair begins shipping on December 31, 2020.
