Making its debut at contract furniture show Spectrum is office furniture company Orangebox’s Landscape collection. The work of designer Gerard Taylor, Landscape’s pieces are fully movable and designed to blend in with different working environments. ‘People are less inclined to sit in front of heavy desks these days,’ says Orangebox marketing manager Kate Denner. ‘Employees are much more flexible in their working areas and frequently have their meetings in receptions and cafÃ© areas. Landscape works well together in these different settings.’ Spectrum 2003 takes place at the Commonwealth Galleries in London’s Holland Park from 13 to 16 May.
