As a long-standing British designer and manufacturer of office furniture, our design team is always looking to expand our range and crucially, keep helping clients to solve their office furniture challenges.
The design team’s latest work is BX Modular – an expansive range of office storage that joins our main office furniture portfolio and gives Staverton one of the most comprehensive storage solutions on the market.
Just launched, the BX Modular office storage range comprises single and two-door cupboards, two-door wardrobes, open storage bookcases, stacking cupboards and lockers, media unit inserts and top planters, as well as credenzas and desk-height storage units.
Unlike most of BX’s competitors, the range is available in four widths to maximise storage potential (single units in 400mm and 500mm widths and double units in 800mm and 1000mm). It also offers a wide variety of customisable components, with several more to be added over the next 12 months.
Staverton’s decision to add office storage to its main product portfolio has been in the works for some time. Lead designer James Barke said: “Although we have designed and manufactured office storage for years, it’s always been as a special request for larger client projects. The launch of Staverton BX Modular sees us bring a full office storage solution into our main portfolio for the first time and allows us to meet the growing demand for more storage choices in the agile office.”
As longevity and flexibility have always been integral to Staverton’s office furniture design ethos, it was important to make this a modular storage solution. James added: “Modular office storage helps with flexibility for clients as it means they can customise the perfect solution for their space and needs. BX Modular components are all simple to interchange and stack as required, and as they have a standard depth of 500mm, they can also stand side-by-side to create seamless runs of storage.”
“We also know that when office furniture can be reconfigured with ease and used in different ways, it generally has a much longer life, which is far better in sustainability terms. We’ve built longevity into BX Modular and that’s very valuable for clients.”
BX Modular is available in four heights, so it can be used to define zones and pathways, bringing both structure and function to open-plan workspaces, as well as extend worksurfaces and add greater function to desk solutions, thanks to a desk-height option. Planter tops mean storage can also house a little touch of nature and bring a more interesting aesthetic to the workplace. In addition, BX Modular integrates easily with the BX Lockers range, which was launched in 2018.
As one of the only office storage solutions in the UK to comprise a media unit, Staverton BX is already standing out from the competition. James added: “We conducted a lot of research to make sure that BX Modular not only offered as much choice as possible, but also addressed gaps in the current office storage market. The media unit is a perfect example.”
“It houses AV – seamlessly integrating a TV or monitor and featuring removable panels and a cable management void – and provides practical storage for meeting rooms and open plan spaces. There’s simply no one else offering a modular storage component like this.”
Sales Director Jamie Wilson is leading the launch of Staverton BX Modular to the facilities, workplace, and interior communities. He added: “BX Modular office storage embodies two of Staverton’s design principles – clever design and problem solving – and adds a very important range to the core Staverton product portfolio.”
“We are proud to combine form, function, flexibility, and personality into a range which will stop office designers and workplace professionals from feeling constrained by size, limited options or unappealing storage options. Early feedback is very positive and we’re already pushing ahead with developing new components to add to the range. BX Modular really is one of the most comprehensive and customisable office storage solutions on the market and we’re eager to see what the year ahead holds.”
