Schiavello just launched a new series of furniture designed in collaboration with designer Gavin Harris. The Toku Collection aims to bring people together through interaction and communication by creating environments that encourage talking and collaborating. Toku, which is ‘talk’ in Japanese, includes benches, ottomans, tables, stools, and screens that can easily be moved around to design workplace setups based on various needs.
Toku’s ottomans and benches are in block-like forms and come in single, double, and four seat modules, with half or full backrests available. Each of the pieces are designed to work in conjunction with each other or individually, and the upholstery combinations are fun and complementary. In addition to the seating, Toku includes two table collections and privacy screens.
