Staverton & Zip – A showroom collaboration

Staverton has opened its second showroom in Clerkenwell, London – working alongside the world leader in instant boiling water, Zip UK.

The 4,431 sq ft showroom which spans two floors, includes an open plan showroom, training facility and regional sales office for Zip’s on site staff and provides the ideal environment to showcase Staverton’s latest product, the CL bench, as well as its PR and LT ranges.

The official launch of the showroom will take place on May 23rd as part of Zip and Staverton’s participation in Clerkenwell Design Week.

Speaking about the new showroom, Staverton director Paul Edward said: “The last few months have seen some serious wins for us – the Design Guild mark and the Design Prima product design award got us off to a flying start.  This partnership with Zip builds on that further.  Clerkenwell Design Week gives us the perfect platform to launch our collaboration and for Staverton in particular, allows us to put our award-winning clever bench in front of the UK’s most influential architects and designers.”

Located at Clover house on Farringdon Road, the showroom will play host to Staverton & Zip’sprogramme of events as part of Clerkenwell Design Week.

Inside the Energy Industries Council with Staverton

The Energy Industries Council (EIC) is the leading trade association for UK companies supplying goods and services to the energy industries worldwide. Staverton were appointed to supply and install desking, meeting tables and storage to The EIC’s new office, located on the Albert Embankment, London.

The EIC desired to create a modern contemporary working environment and Staverton was briefed to deliver a cost effective, quality furniture solution in line with their new space. The client required desking and storage for 40 staff. The meeting room furniture needed to be flexible to enable it to be continually changed to cater for different styles of meetings.

Staverton ZD workstations were specified in the openplan office, each with a tower storage unit. A special brush strip was designed on the back of the worksurfaces to prevent pens and other stationary falling through the gap. Staverton PR workstations were specified in the cellular offices, which provided an elegant and sophisticated executive environment.

Bespoke Staverton flip top tables with linking elements were manufactured for EIC’s meeting rooms. This cohesive solution allows tables to be stored when not in use, as well as link together to be suitably arranged for various types of meetings. Staverton have manufactured and installed contemporary furniture in keeping with The EIC’s new office space.

Paul Yaghmourian, Chief Operating Officer, says: “We are delighted with the quality and functionality of our furniture, which Staverton supplied at a very competitive price.”

Acxiom selects Staverton ZD bench for its new London office

Even a company so closely linked to the virtual world needs somewhere in the physical world to call home. Acxiom has recently moved to new UK headquarters in Southwark, London. Staverton was selected to provide 300 ZD workstations, folding meeting tables and workwall.

Travelex selects Staverton furniture for its newly refurbished head office

Travelex selects Staverton furniture for its newly refurbished head office

Travelex has evolved from being an innovative bureau de change operator into a dynamic and diversified worldwide money business. The Directors at Travelex’s London Head Office wished to generate a more open work environment, where communication and co-operation between the company executives and their staff would become intuitive.

Staverton were appointed to supply desking, tables and storage to create a fresh and contemporary feel to the space. Staverton were required to differentiate, yet provide a relationship between the executives and their personal assistants’ furniture and create a wire free environment below the work-surface.

Staverton were tasked with providing appropriate furniture for the new executive floor following the removal of all the cellular offices. The L-shaped desks needed to be changed to straight benches by reusing the substructure of the existing desks.

Walnut veneer desk and table tops were supplied for the executive area and contrasted with Staverton’s porcelain and high gloss white finishes specified for the personal assistants workspace.
Side return storage cabinets with full width sliding drawers removed the need for pedestals. Pear wood mfc tops and new screen panels were supplied to suit the existing furniture framework.
Power and data was integrated into the work wall panels, which divided the space. Humanscale’s Liberty chair was provided to give a light and open feel to the seating as well as provide a first rate ergonomic product. Boss Mars, Layla and Kruze soft seating were specified for all the informal and meeting chair requirements.

Sylvain Pignet, Travelex’s Group Company Secretary says: “We are all very happy with the results. We are now in really nice offices…and we find it much more collaborative than it was before, due to the fact that we now work in an open plan space. I would recommend Staverton and I would definitely consider them for future projects.”

Staverton expands Partner network

Staverton, one of the UK’s most innovative office furniture brands, is continuing to build on its collaborative partnership with North West based commercial interior design specialist, Claremont Group Interiors. The two firms have recently worked together on an installation for the new state-of-the-art Milton Keynes offices of international law firm, Denton Wilde Sapte, (DWS).

DWS has over 600 lawyers in a network of offices and associate offices across Europe, the Middle East,  Central Asia, Africa and South East Asia and works with many of the world’s leading companies in four industry sectors: Energy, Transport & Infrastructure; Financial Institutions; Real Estate and Retail and; Technology, Media and Telecoms.

The only City‐headquartered law firm with a presence in Milton Keynes, DWS have had an office in the town since 1988. With the continued growth of the Milton Keynes practice, DWS took the decision to relocate to the brand new BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Pinnacle:MK development within the town’s central business district. DWS have taken 32,500 sq ft within the flagship office development, to accommodate 100 staff.

Claremont, who worked with Staverton to supply the furniture, worked to a tight timescale, with only four weeks to deliver and install all furniture products including all bespoke joinery items. Roland Gray, Partner at Denton Wilde Sapte, said; “We wanted the furniture to both reflect DWS and our new environment at Pinnacle and we needed the work completing in a short space of time. Staverton and Claremont met every objective so we’re delighted.”
