Prototype Preview

We gave attendees at Orgatec 2016 a sneak preview of our newest prototype screen: Bedouin

Designers all across the world are being compelled to generate new ideas to make contemporary workspaces much more flexible and adaptable… and it’s no different in our Yorkshire factory!

Flexibility in workplace design is a trend close to our hearts as, since early 2015, we’ve been working on our new Liberate range of products; each of which has been designed and developed by the Icon R&D teams as a direct response to our customer’s demands.

The concept behind ‘Liberate your Workplace’ is all about flexibility and ripping up the rulebook when it comes to static, clunky, fixed, and uncompromising screen solutions.  At Orgatec in Cologne last month, we showcased examples of our innovative Nomad desktop screens as well as an exclusive preview of a prototype for our next product, planned for release in 2017.

The third product in the Liberate range is Bedouin. Bedouin is a very stylish freestanding screen, with excellent acoustic properties, that can be used in multiple ways to create meeting spaces and work areas as and when required.

Customer feedback is, of course, an intrinsic part of any product design process and we took our Bedouin prototype to Orgatec to get some first impressions of the design and concept from a number of industry experts. The response we got was great and incredibly useful. It’s now time to head back into the design studio to refine our idea before we bring it to market next year.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news about Bedouin in 2017!
