Seeyond Select Mobile Wall System Answers New Collaboration Culture

Newest Seeyond Select Line Addresses Increasing Demand for Easy Reconfiguration of Common Spaces That Accommodate Meeting and Communication Dynamics Which Are Always in Flux

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - November 18, 2014) - Seeyond® Architectural Solutions delivers an efficient mobile wall solution for today's flexible business environments. Alternative working patterns continue to emerge while demanding alternative space planning throughout the corporate landscape. So Seeyond Select created a predesigned system of mobile walls that can be moved by anyone at anytime to accommodate changing work dynamics.

The new Seeyond Select mobile wall system supports human-centered communication needs in common spaces. Renowned designer George Simons of George Simons Office of Design -- whose firm worked with Seeyond on creating the new system -- considered both formal and informal modes of communication and interaction throughout the design process. Employee privacy and territoriality needs also influenced the innovative system of mobile walls.

As traditional office spaces make way for more open and flexible work environments, mobile walls become a critical component for space planners. New versatile office plans facilitate spontaneous conversation and employee collaboration. Today's design briefs focus on community and transparency while making team productivity a central theme.

Seeyond Select accommodates the need for maximizing space in open environments that are as dynamic as the people working in them, thereby demonstrating that buildings and their spaces must now perform for the business by allowing workers choice and versatility. "We're creating privacy and controlling proximity by transforming space at a moment's notice," said Kirby Rea, general manager at Seeyond.

A key to the Seeyond Select ease of mobility is the high-performance transfer bearings inside each mobile base. Each wall is either curved or angled and made of highly durable metal composite. The new versatile mobile wall system offers varying wall shapes and heights and is ideal for fast and efficient reconfiguration of open spaces.

A customer simply chooses the mobile wall shape and height, specifies the material color, and places the order. The mobile wall will be sent within weeks to an authorized local partner who will deliver and install the new Seeyond Select feature for the customer.

Every Seeyond Select wall is available as a wireframe, as well as a 3D rendering for planning and presentation needs. Customers can simply visit Seeyond.com/Select or call 800-508-5455 for more information.
