new kimball office system - hum

Kimball Office - Hum

A new desk based office system from Kimball Office called Hum looks really great. Is it just my imagination or is it trying to look a bit like its sitting on saw-horses, like something us small office/home office workers would put together? I think there is a bit of a trend in play where by the styling of office systems are trying to capture the spontaneous nature of ad hoc office furniture - its an anti-cubical kind of thing. We'll have to watch for that and identify it when we see it!

Generally all the group worksations are based on this kind of organization - a spine with low partition and shelves, a convex shaped work top, and end caps that can be claimed by either side or used on a temporary basis by a visitor.

They can do the three sided workstation groups which seem to be all the rage since Herman Miller's Resolve was based on this geometry.

Visit their web site for many more photos, and several downloadable PDF brochures on the system. I must say their documents for Hum have a very Vitra vibe to them!
