for the 2019 edition of clerkenwell design week, british brand established & sons is exploring the live-work trend, resulting in a new collection of crossover designs to inspire work at home, in the office, in shared spaces and everywhere in-between. designed by ronan & erwan bouroullec, GRID responds to the rise of live-work spaces and the changing attitudes towards aesthetics in the working environment.

the working environment is no longer fixed — from offices to cafés and co-working spaces, the way we work is rapidly changing and as such, we are adapting. GRID by the bouroullec brothers for established & sons provides privacy in open interior spaces. thought as a colorful room-within-a-room, its raw shell provides a base for modular seating, shelves, tables and screens. its flexible core design allows GRID to be integrated in different ways depending on the use, creating a playful and multifunctional environment for informal meetings, presentations, or just hanging out.

based on a basic L-shaped module, GRID has two 2.5-metre-long sides enclosed by tall back and side panels. upholstered as a sofa, or functioning as a built-in side table, the sides can be whatever the user wants them to be. a standing or sitting desk can be also be created for informal work with just the addition of an external shelf. the side panels are either available in a metal grid that facilitates communication, or in a larch-wood veneer that can be covered with accosting upholstery for more intimate interactions.

GRID is so flexible it can also be assembled in many ways; as a U-shaped module that creates a more enveloping effect; as a straight module without a seat functioning that works as a partition; or as a straight module with a seat offering a bench. the modules can also be joined together to create rows of different uses.
