 TCW supplied EON sit-to stand workstations, Domino Task chairs and mobile storage units for this project. The EON workstations incorporated natural woodgrain finishes and PET Acoustic panel for the workstation screens and personal privacy dividers. Over 300 EON workstations in various configurations were supplied to accommodate the school’s occupants over two levels.

Utilising an urban design context as a design narrative was key to unlocking the spatial challenges of a vast and deep floor plan presented to the design. The project involved crafting an authentic space employing natural materials honestly whilst providing spaces of equity and agility delivering a future flexibility.

The innovation vision of the centre was brought to life by NBRS Architecture’s concept for the facility – the discovery of patterns in nature. The incorporated patterns of are best demonstrated in the large ‘hive’ designed the foyer, as well as the environmental graphics and room details. We supplied breakout furniture, outdoor seating and tables, industry tech stools, meeting and classroom tables, and task seating.
Considered natural materiality ensures minimal visual impact and creates a harmonious relationship between the built form and the Sydney sandstone environment. The building facade allows light to flood in through showing the wonderful landscape that surrounds the facility. Breakout furniture that was provided by TCW is extensive and crosses a wide range of uses. The facility is designed to cater for internal staff needs and workspaces, clever integration of animal friendly zones, as well as greater community and education spaces. It is a space designed to promote ‘cross-pollination’ of ideas between scientists, educationalists and animal carers.
The Albury and Bronte chairs are ideal as breakout furniture for casual study sessions, working and meeting rooms. Upholstered in earthy fabric colours and wooden bases made them slide into the Taronga aesthetic very well. TCW was brought into the project to offer a range of pieces that integrated with the ethos of the environment, and upheld the multi-disciplinary research and teaching spaces.

The 10,046sqm project covered classrooms, staff offices, breakout, canteen zones and collaboration areas. Our operations team had to manage many of the desk configurations around quirks of the building façade, including cutting tops to float around columns. Inclusive in the height-adjustable workstations was cable management, above desk power and monitor arms which all contribute to the ergonomic quality of the zone.

TCW managed furniture procurement and delivery at the Charles Perkins Centre from 2012 to 2014. We worked closely with both the University and the architects to select products which best fit the brief and exceeded expectations of design, quality of materials and engineering, longevity (10 year warranties), lead time and budget. TCW provided solutions to several key areas: scientific laboratories, learning spaces, breakout areas and cafés.

Approximately 1500 Dauphin Industry stools were delivered and installed in November 2013. The Dauphin Tec Stools are a niche seating group of chairs specifically designed for activities requiring high levels of concentration and/or cleanliness. Since the completion of the project, Dauphin Industry stools have continued to be specified for other University projects where quality laboratory seating is required.

TCW delivered and installed 600 tables from ThinkingWorks, which were locally manufactured and finished to the architects’ specifications.

As TCW has experience in many education spaces, we always looks to provide a furniture solution that goes above and beyond just the ‘need’ but also delights and inspires. Initially we worked in the fit out of several levels at 187 Thomas street, and more recently the Insearch facility on Harris street.

As you walk in, the lobby breakout space feature is the ‘Signs’ soft seating, an organic benching system that allows for students to utilize the space in a fluid way. Upstairs you find scattered arrangements with the ‘Zebra bicolore’ and ‘Cage’ chairs set into spaces suited to group learning and complementing the feature walls.
