DELANCO, N.J.—With COVID-19 forcing designers to reimagine the ubiquitous open office and other public spaces, Stylex has stepped in with an instant solution: the Quick collection of upholstered screens. Created by Stylex’s in-house design team, Quick presents a simple way to carve out private, protected spaces within open-plan environments. With an impressive lead time of only 10 business days, Quick is essential design at a moment’s notice.
“Designers need manufacturers to act fast so that they can foster safe, health-centered spaces,” notes Randi Pastrovic, Vice President of Marketing, Stylex. “Quick’s quality, usability, and availability make it a crucial, fast-acting addition in public spaces.”
Instantly reconfigurable without the use of special tools, Quick upholstered screens live up to their name. These lightweight spatial dividers support any foreseeable situation, be it retrofitting an office for density, creating an ad-hoc lounge, or temporarily enforcing greater social distance. The screens can stand alone or be grouped together, with optional casters making them even easier to move or nest when not in use. A top connecting screw allows grouped panels to very simply create any size corner angle, increasing the range of applications, geometries, and design possibilities. Quick serves the ever-changing needs of the contract, healthcare, hospitality, retail, and educational markets and safeguards employees’ physical and mental well-being as they return to their places of work.
Quick is available in two heights (54” and 68”) and two widths (30” and 48”) to support privacy and protection to seated and standing users alike. The screens come standard with ½” plated-steel feet that may be specified in 26 powder-coated colors. Upholstery options are equally plentiful, ranging from refined woven textiles to resilient, bleach-cleanable fabrics. A curated selection of finishes and fabrics are available for QuickShip, bringing Quick door-to-door in a meer 10 business days. Quick screens are designed and tested to BIFMA performance standards. GREENGUARD and LEVEL certifications are anticipated Fall 2020.
