  • The design intent was to ‘create a functional commercial product with residential junctions’. The breadth of functionality is a response to the demanding and complex environments of use. With the ever changing demands of workspaces, Adapt is designed to transform with the individual needs of the space. Adapt’s modular nature allows components to be easily reconfigured, creating solutions now and for the future. Based around five core elements with an economical base unit, each module can sit alone or combine to create larger systems, using the straight or curved units and with the addition of tables and desks.

  • The clean lines and subtle surfaces of the Adapt bring a softness and sense of the familiar into the workspace. Offering a diverse range of possible compositions ensures a cohesive design language can be created in any fit-out. Adapt is made in Melbourne and was designed by Ross Gardam to perfectly service multiple sectors and applications. A truly modular system with functionality at its core, Adapt caters for offices, receptions, universities, airports and hospitality spaces. Conceived for both small and large open-plan spaces, the collection can transform from small booths for study to large team training areas and anything in-between.

  • The Adapt Lounge Collection was created to uniquely adapt to the needs of today's ever evolving workspaces. The easy-to-change modules can be added or removed to the core unit to effortlessly integrate with the requirements of the user. Simply attaching arms, backs, mid-height or full-height screens, as well as desks and tables, gives the Adapt Range nearly limitless possibilities for a truly flexible work based system.

  • **Softness** A 50mm radius is used throughout to soften the overall appearance and to make the collection approachable and inviting. An overstated French seam features heavily to bring a relaxed nature to the overall design. **Privacy** With the addition of a mid-height screen the Adapt transforms into a more private space, a haven in busy environments. The option of a full- height screen creates total visual privacy and can provide a refuge for study and concentration. **Connection** Each screen features nodes enabling a simple installation process while creating a defined visual language that continues through to the lounge, table and desk legs. **Tension** A visual tension between cushions, a soft radius and a seam detail are all designed to create a distinctly residential design language paired with a high level of comfort.
