We are proud to announce that our new, spectacular Worklife Showroom is now open at Bruntwood’s Neo Building in the heart of Manchester on Charlotte Street.
Neo is an £8m redevelopment of the former 12-story Bank House building and is Bruntwood’s most evolved collaborative workspace to date. The word ‘Neo’ is taken from the Greek word for ‘new’ meaning a ‘fresh, revived form’.
We have transformed the eighth floor and created different themed settings that allow visitors a chance to come and explore the latest ideas in workplace design, the newest furniture design trends and technology development for improved collaboration, flexible working and more efficient working. There is also a library area with a wide range of fabrics and finishes.
As well as office furniture and space solutions from the US-based Steelcase, we will regularly showcase work by manufacturers including BuzziSpace, Ocee Design, Frovi, Orangebox and Naughtone.
The different settings we have put together reflect the diverse ranges of workspaces that are suited to the way people work today. We show how the right mix of products can have a positive effect on people’s wellbeing, engagement and productivity.
We are working with a growing number of interior designers, architects and progressive companies in the city and Neo gives us the opportunity to showcase how we can encourage more creative ways of working that ultimately improves productivity and the bottom line for businesses within the North West.
We apply our knowledge and insights to give workers an environment where they have spaces to focus, collaborate, rejuvenate, socialise, learn and meet. It enables people to do their best work in spaces designed for the task they are performing.
Customers love being able to see, try and touch the products for the first time as well as getting ideas on everything from the latest colour schemes and office layout ideas to inspiration on how to bring touches of the home and Scandinavian chic into the workplace.
We offer a range of SMART and touch screens which help to bring meetings to life, desks which allow you to sit or stand at them to encourage healthy movement and non-hierarchical meeting room tables. We’ve even got a meeting table that can be transformed into a table tennis table.
