We are co-creators with our clients. Every project is a collaboration that leads to a solution aligned with your brand, one that represents your culture, one that anticipates the future of work. Modifying our products to suit you is not outside of our process. It is our process. We still make what we sell—and that allows us to adapt, adjust and re-tool to meet specific needs. This makes us different.
CULTURE OF DESIGN
Design thinking is in our DNA—a core Teknion philosophy, an ethos born in the vision of our CEO David Feldberg. It is as much a part of our business strategy as the form and function of our furniture products. Design permeates everything we do. It informs the way we think, the way we communicate and everything we produce: furniture and textiles, graphics and literature, how we serve the design community and even our individual passions.
PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN
Following design principles refined by our seasoned in-house design team, through collaboration with renowned designers worldwide, and our commitment as life-long pupils to the nature of work, Teknion crafts purposeful business tools to enable organizations to grow and transform—“future proof” solutions that bring immediate and long-term value.
We still make things. True vertical integration gives Teknion the ability to control every element of production, reduce costs and ensure prompt delivery. It gives free rein to creativity, allows for extraordinary custom designs, and offers exceptional flexibility on how orders are organized around your needs and expectations. Adjustments others call “specials” are just the way we work.
GLOBAL + LOCAL
Teknion combines true global presence with locally nuanced expertise. Well equipped to serve multi-national and regional companies alike, our worldwide manufacturing and dealer network is represented by local service teams—experts who live their local culture daily but connect your team to our knowledge base around the world. We strive to be flexible, attentive and easy to work with. We are happy to integrate with your processes instead of forcing you to adapt to ours.
Sustainability is a cultural imperative within our company, embraced at both the corporate and individual levels. We go way beyond the fundamentals. Instead of focusing on doing the least harm, we focus on doing the most good. Our programs and initiatives enables us to challenge what's possible – and benefit you by responding to your needs and vision. For more information, you will find our Impact Report located on the Resources tab.
We pride ourselves on being accessible, authentic human beings—members of a big company that act like a small company. We're family owned and operated. This entrepreneurial spirit empowers our teams to make big decisions quickly, so you never feel small. We try not to take ourselves too seriously, but we're very serious about designing the right solutions for you. We share a “can do, will do” attitude. And we designed our company to be agile, responsive and a little bit different, for you.

Architecture and design are critical elements in achieving the academic mission of modern universities. Facility design, including furniture, expresses the institution's brand, reflects the quality of teh educational experience provided–and facilitates or inhibits the learning process. Teknion offers a comprehensive portfolio of furniture products designed to support the goals of modern educational institutions and the learning practices of students across the campus: a solitary student reading at a library desk, a group working in a project room, or a classroom of students engaged in a lively discussion while sharing ideas on laptops and tablets.
Designed primarily for lectures and discussion, the traditional classroom is still relevant. But today's active and collaborative learning styles also require a physical space that is flexible. Mobile, reconfigurable seating, tables and whiteboard screens allow for quick transitions across a spectrum of conventional and alternative models–including those where technology is leveraged to enhance teaching and leaning.
Faculty and Staff Spaces
To address the diverse needs of faculty, administrators and school leaders, academic institutions require a mix of private and shared offices, as well as open work areas, formal meeting rooms and multi-functional spaces. Furnishings must support the focused work of teachers, researchers and staff–and interaction among faculty members or offices–as well as casual or scheduled meetings with students and campus visitors.
Modern acadmic libraries are designed to provide access to services and resources that enrich learning via book collections, digital material and interactive media. The library includes private, quiet spaces to support individual student reading and study, as well as open and enclosed spaces that serve a range of group activities.
Student unions, residence halls, performing arts centers and other campus facilities offer access to a wide community of users, accommodating a variety of activities and encompassing diverse types of shared spaces. Common spaces may include student lounges designed for study and for socializing, as well as cafes and coffee bars, lobbies, and in-between spaces furnished to create break-out areas in campus buildings.
Studio TK is helping to change the culture of work. With our exclusive focus on social applications, we are creating spaces that are responsive to all the ways we work and all that our work demands. From quiet focus to creative collaboration, social spaces are creating a new type of workplace that is improving well-being and increasing productivity across the office.
