People want to feel comfortable, inspired and supported at work. They want to connect with their teams in honest, informal ways — ways that help them build relationships, all while being their true selves and getting their best work done. Now, Steelcase and west elm are introducing the west elm Work Collection which will be available exclusively through Steelcase and west elm dealers to support the changing preferences of people at work.
Since announcing in June that they would be working together, Steelcase and west elm have teamed up to offer an initial suite of products designed to help create inspiring, high-performance places where people love to work. These products will be available in the U.S. and Canada in mid-December 2018.
Combining the distinctive look and feel of west elm with Steelcase’s research, engineering, operational capabilities, and dealer network will create a compelling combination for clients, as well as for the design community.
“Workers today want inspiring places to do their best work, and we believe the west elm Work Collection will help them to do just that,” says Brian Shapland, general manager of ancillary partnerships, Steelcase.
“Our close connection to our customers gives us a unique set of insights about what people are seeking at work and how those needs change over time,” says Cheryl Carpenter, vice president at west elm. “All of this background and ongoing access to how people’s desires are changing comes with us as we collaborate with Steelcase to offer the new west elm Work Collection which is designed exclusively for this partnership to meet the needs and quality standards of the workplace.”
