Mackinac: Make It Yours

Mackinac’s robust options let designers craft a unique vision.

Mackinac Private Office

Our smartphones are a portal to a world of ideas and inspiration. The minute a new concept is shared online, it spreads with lightning speed to far-reaching pockets of the globe. Our ability to shape our own identities has never been greater. We can instantly access a plethora of styles and determine what feels most authentic. And, it’s never been easier. Some of the biggest retailers in the world are making it incredibly simple to customize items with a touch of a button.

It’s not a surprise people want the bespoke experience they’re used to in other parts of their lives in the places where they work. A diversity of spaces and materials gives people access to things that are relevant to them.

High-performing and beautiful, the cantilever worksurface created for Mackinac (pronounced MAK-uh-naw) puts the person at the center of the design. Mackinac’s microzones let people easily shift from working alone to working with others to a moment of respite, all within a compact footprint. Its visually light, yet incredibly strong expanse invites an array of applications and materials — giving people the ability to create an environment that meets their performance needs and their personal vibe. A shelving tower and shroud also offer opportunities to create a sense of coziness and comfort. Robust materiality options let designers craft a unique vision customized for any space.

 

Honest + Welcoming

Like a lighter look and feel? This tranquil, cozy style embraces the Scandinavian concept of “hygge.” A planked maple worksurface, backpainted glass and plywood and Forbo* shelving create this airy experience.
