Hong Kong (26th June 2019) – Steelcase today announces a new exclusive relationship with Taiga Concept Ltd., the Finland-based company, to distribute and sell Taiga Concept’s range of Lohko Booths in Asia Pacific markets, beginning in June 2019. The Taiga Concept range of privacy booths complements an extensive and growing Steelcase portfolio of acoustic pods, expanding the range of privacy solutions available to Steelcase customers throughout the Asia Pacific region, backed by the ease of delivery and reliability of the largest dealer network in the industry.
Since its founding in 2015, Taiga Concept has developed innovative soundproof modules, designed to enhance the wellbeing and efficiency of people working in open offices and public spaces. The modular, free-standing designs and selection of materials express a Scandinavian simplicity and functionality, with refined natural finishes. The versatile modules can be configured for individual and team activities that require privacy, including phone booths, video conference facilities for Asia Pacific markets. Taiga Concept recently expanded production to China.
“We are pleased to offer our clients a comprehensive range of acoustic pod options to meet the growing demand for scalable office modules in the Asia Pacific markets. Taiga Concept Lohko Booths enable organizations to provide privacy on demand, and they now are easily available for Asia Pacific clients through the Steelcase distribution network,” said Samantha Giam, Director, Product Marketing for Steelcase Asia Pacific.
“Asian markets are fast-paced, and our competitive advantage is that we can produce close to our customers. This accelerates the process and is also better from the environmental point of view” said Maarit Sinikangas, CEO of Taiga Concept. Sinikangas adds that, in the international market, it is important that the products are easy to use, sustainable, certified, and the components are recyclable. These are inherent features of Taiga Concept’s design and manufacturing and are core values that Taiga Concept shares with Steelcase.
