orangebox office furniture systems
Space-pod loves the orangebox range of office furniture and office space dividers, because they help us to add style, substance and functionality to the modern office environments that we create.
Today, the office landscape is changing more rapidly than ever before. Technology’s impact on how we work can’t always be anticipated.
Like space-pod, Orangebox recognises this and are focused on providing us with products that help our clients embrace tomorrow, whatever form it takes.
A key benefit of today’s technology is the ability to work anywhere. With this in mind, Orangebox furniture helps us to ensure that within a space-pod designed office environment, you can work everywhere.
The design and production values that imbue Orangebox products are: simple, smart, never overcooked and focused on bringing innovation to real market needs. Orangebox furniture is designed to bring work and home together in a new kind of work setting - a 3rd space - where people can work in, what Orangebox terms, the Comfort Zone.
Similarly, Orangebox task chairs offer a level of design and engineering finesse married to the ergonomic pedigree that Giroflex has established over the last 40 years. The key principles of an Orangebox task chairs are: (value) ergonomics, ease of use, dimensional fit and dynamic function.
A History of Innovation
Orangebox began with the introduction of Giroflex into the UK market in 1973. We secured a
license agreement with this Swiss manufacturer, leading to construction of the current production facility in Hengoed, South Wales. Giroflex expanded in the 70s and 80s by acquiring Gordon Russell, amongst others and was then bought by Steelcase Strafor in the late 1980s. They maintained ownership until 1998, when Mino Vernaschi led a management buyout and began
a process of reinvigoration and product investment.
This began with the G64 task chair and the expansion into soft seating, resulting in the
company’s rebranding and the formation of Orangebox in 2002. Orangebox remains a
privately owned company. Since its launch, it has become recognised as one of the UK’s most progressive, innovative and successful office furniture companies.
Addressing environmental issues, proactively
Improving environmental performance is not a new concept for Orangebox. They've worked consistenly to introduce environmental imrovements for over a decade and whilst 'Tread Softly'
may be their new way of expressing their environmnetal commitment, the truth is that theye've been trying to walk on tip toes for years.
Orangebox have implemented an environmental business model that addresses sustainability from
three sides of their business and are working with recognised environmental consultancies
'Best Foot Forward' and 'Climate Care' to carry out ecological and carbon footprinting to further optimise their performance and have been awarded full FISP accreditation by FIRA.
Firstly - their environmental approach to product design focuses on the use of sustainable
materials and the use of minimal energy for product manufacturing. As well, all of our products
are designed for long service life.
Secondly - their supply chain is optimised to aid sustainable consumption by actively reducing ‘product miles’ and their key suppliers support their environmental aspirations by acting as
material researchers and innovators.
Thirdly - they believe that an environmental agenda should always be a key driver in our growth.
This ‘business eco-culture’ is evident throughout the company, from the boardroom to our
delivery drivers, in their product development strategy and their staff training.
The Orangebox manufacturing facility has also received a number of awards:
- > Winner of 2002 Wales Environment Award (50-250 employees)
- > 2001 Green Dragon Environmental Standard
- > 1999 UK Best Small Factory Award
- > Winner of 1999 Wales Environment Award for the Best Workforce
