POGO - in the Mix!
Updated: May 5
Pogo has been shortlisted as a finalist in this years Mixology Awards 2023 Task Furniture category…
Pogo has been recognised for its design as a self contained rise fall collaboration desk which allows full technology integration with the flexibility of changing individual parts as technology changes.
Designed with circularity in mind, Pogo embraces the Workbench waste hierarchy policy, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle and as part of the Workbeyond initiative has solutions to adhere to this hierarchy by reusing the fundamental elements therefore reducing overall waste.
Environmentally technology is one of the most difficult requirements to sustainably integrate into a product as it changes rapidly. We are not able to stop these rapid advances so when designing Pogo, Workbench embraced this. Pogo is designed using individual parts and standard fixings where possible. This allows components such as the VC screen, power presentation, actuators and top to be swapped out on a part by part basis without having to replace the whole desk. So if technology changes or Pogo needs to adapt it can! This dramatically increases the length of service for the user.
Pogo has elegant and slim profiling. Despite the high quantity of equipment and the flexibility of the desk height the table is compact with considered profiled edges and soft curves to all its components. The power is presented to the user via the Workbench Caplet plate in the desk top which accommodates an off the shelf power bar with interchangeable canisters so should the power and data feed need to change new canister presentation can be retro fitted. The screen bracket is designed to allow for multiple variations of screen, and is designed as a separate part so if the screen mounting moves away from Vesa plates, or a specialist screen is required it can be accommodated.
At Workbench we calculate our carbon footprint for scope 1, 2 & full scope 3. All our products are designed to meet our waste hierarchy policy of reduce, reuse, repurpose & recycle. Workbench is in a unique position to be able to design for reuse at the start of a products life and Pogo encapsulates this.
You can see POGO at Clerkenwell Design Week, 23-25 May in our Clerkenwell showroom, 3 Sutton Lane, London, EC1M 5PU.
