Work Better: Future Ready Workstyles, Archidex 2019

Leading the industry with new solutions for higher productivity and better collaboration in the workplace, Bristol presents an inspiring showcase of products aimed at taking today’s offices to the next level. 

A better work environment leads to better performance. In line with their vision for the future to create well-designed, quality furniture for today’s offices, Bristol recently unveiled an innovative range of products in tandem with their “Work Better” campaign at ARCHIDEX 2019.

“Work Better” focuses on three key areas: agility and movement at work; collaborative and productive environments as well as ergonomics. In terms of creating a more agile office environment, the sit-to-stand table system, Vertigo 2.0 with independently moving tables and acoustic panels, allows users to easily adjust to their preferred position, as well as providing privacy on demand. Brava offers even more flexibility – this multipurpose bench consists of a top element that can be lowered into a seating area.

A collaborative work environment contributes to improved productivity

Bristol believes that a collaborative work environment contributes to improved productivity. An advanced acoustic panel system, Decibel 43 seamlessly creates versatile space division and enclosures while maintaining a social and interactive atmosphere.

For group settings, Modu provides a vibrant modular soft seating system that can be configured into dynamic, informal meeting spaces to foster more opportunities for collaboration. Combined with the height-adjustable and mobile Wobi Stools, ad hoc seats can be added on when the need arises.

The Liven chair can be adjusted from all angles

When it comes to ergonomics. Bristol’s iconic LIVEN chair can be adjusted from all angles to provide ergonomic compatibility with the user. The seat and backrest can be tilted in perfect balance with the body’s movement while the backrest lumbar can be set higher or lower to support the spine.

The Best New Product Award

During ARCHIDEX 2019, Bristol received two coveted awards from the event: the Best New Product award for its LIVEN executive chair as well as the Booth Design Award in the Standard Structure Category (37 sqm and above) – Gold Award winner.

Collective Productivity

Designed to optimise the workplace, Myko and Decibel 43 Call Pod offers employees multiple seating and spatial options to carry out their tasks in a manner that is most conducive to them.

More than just a utilitarian space to get things done, today’s work environment is defined by how employees work and the dynamic use of different spaces. Private and open office spaces are also expanding to include more formal and informal collaborative workspaces as a way to boost morale and productivity. In line with these evolving work trends, Bristol’s Myko chair and Decibel 43 Call Pod are designed to address these needs with the aim to create higher synergy between teams in the workplace.

Based on the ideology of a streamlined multi-purpose chair, the highly attractive Myko chair offers more than good looks to complement office spaces. Distinctive yet versatile and mobile, this chair is meticulously crafted to work harmoniously in different seating configurations. As a chair for formal spaces, the chair exudes an air of sophistication with its elegant silhouette while keeping to optimal ergonomic and anthropometric standards.

Easily adapts to different spatial requirements

When Myko is placed in more casual environments, it can easily adapt to different spatial requirements when the need arises. With a lightweight frame that does away with non-essential mechanical parts, adjustments to the chair are quick and easy, which makes it an ideal seating option for other purposes beyond corporate offices, for instance, hospitality, retail, hospitals, schools and recreational spaces.

Open spaces that encourage human interaction

While workplaces benefit from open spaces that encourage human interaction between employees, it does come with the issue of noise and distraction. Bristol addresses this concern with the innovative Decibel 43 Call Pod, a versatile and acoustically balanced private enclosure that seamlessly blends into open office spaces.

The system was designed with architects and space planners

“This system was designed with architects and space planners in mind, to offer them the flexibility to plan large open spaces with acoustic privacy and the tools to personalise the system, so that their project could have its own unique look,” Bristol says. “It is designed to work together individually and collectively to create practical spatial concepts for group collaboration and individual privacy to optimise your office’s productivity and creativity.”

The Decibel 43 Call Pod incorporates a worktop, internal lighting and ventilation system as well as USB ports and plug sockets for plugging in devices. Fitting one person at a time, the interior of the call pod is upholstered in fabric for a cosy experience. A glass door is also used to maintain a visual connection to the outside so that users won’t feel completely isolated from the surrounding office environment.

Innovations for the New Normal

Bristol steps up to the challenge of creating workspaces for the new normal with an innovative suite of workplace solutions that emphasise on physical distancing.

As we move towards economic recovery, workplaces begin to adopt new approaches in response to post-pandemic requirements. Taking cue from social distancing protocols, Bristol presents an integrated system of post-Covid workplace solutions: assigning zones, building shields, and creating individual workspaces, aimed at easing the transition of offices to the new normal.

With the use of flexible systems, offices can strategically segregate their spaces into specific zones for enhanced social distancing purposes. Bristol’s Zones mobile panels seamlessly create private and multifunctional spaces with optimal distancing without compromising an open atmosphere.

Ideal for team meetings

Ideal for team meetings or group discussions, Zones Alpha comes with a fabric or whiteboard surface with MDF core while the Media model provides space for media integration. When it comes to setting up face-to-face barriers, it is vital to take the existing workspace configuration into consideration.

Bristol’s Shield polycarbonate panels can be incorporated into existing desking systems

Designed with this in mind, Bristol’s Shield polycarbonate panels can be incorporated into existing desking systems or panels to create simple but complementary barriers for workstations.

Shield can also function independently as a standalone mobile panel, for example, placing it side-by-side to form a walkway barrier. The panel’s polycarbonate material is also easy to clean, which makes it a versatile element to address hygiene and respiratory etiquette.

Individual workspaces can also simplify physical distancing measures.

Bristol’s Decibel 43 Mobile Pods are excellent for creating micro workspaces that offer visual and acoustic privacy to minimise opportunities for close interactions. Users can easily move the mobile cubicles, which come with integrated casters, to designated zones. Each unit features a tablet table available in different height and widths. Decibel 43 can also accommodate a variety of features including ergonomic sofa seats with flexing back and electrical power units.

Collaboration in Motion

Bristol’s Collaborative Spaces Collection brings together a selection of innovative elements to enhance collaborative zones in today’s workspaces.

Collaboration can significantly improve productivity, efficiency, and creativity in the workplace. While every office may require a different approach to designing collaborative spaces, furniture is one of the most essential elements to ensure these spaces effectively support teamwork and interactivity.

Bristol’s Collaborative Spaces collection is curated to facilitate changing levels of engagement throughout the workday, where individuals can seamlessly flow from solo and focused workspaces to co-working zones. Flexibility and versatility are key when it comes to seating options, while tables, surfaces, and other furnishing elements offer more adaptability and accessibility.

Perfect combination

The Ginko chair and Wobi stool are perfect examples of versatile and mobile seating in this collection. Ginko, which comes with a leaf-like design for its back, is a lightweight chair that fits into both informal and formal work zones. As Ginko also comes with casters, you can easily move this chair around when the need arises. With its fun and trendy design, the Wobi Stool is a wonderful addition to collaborative spaces. It can be easily adjusted with a built-in handle and is light enough to be moved around.

Opportunities for teamwork

Communal or social furniture creates opportunities for teamwork and impromptu gatherings, leading to improved workplace connectivity. Modu, a modular soft seating system, is designed for dynamic collaborative spaces that call for a blend of comfort and style. Made from just two main components – a conical-shaped backrest and a cube-like seat, Modu features six upholstered modules to form the basis of a variety of configurations as well as four upholstery variations.

The collection also provides a wide range of tables to suit different specifications

For freestanding work areas, the Vertigo table can be quickly adjusted from sitting position to standing postures in just seconds. High meeting tables like the Forum series are ideal for informal discussion areas, while the Lift height-adjustable table creates a more dynamic workspace with a programmable desk panel that incorporates a TV or other tech devices.

Not Sitting On His Laurels

FROM MANUFACTURING SIMPLE BOXES TO A WIDE VARIETY OF OFFICE FURNITURE, YONG YOOK SENG HAS ALWAYS LOOKED AHEAD OF THE CURVE TO GROW BIGGER.

ENTREPRENEURS are always encouraged to dream big.But for Bristol Technologies Sdn Bhd founder and managing director Yong Yook Seng, 64, what matters more is taking things one step at a time to build the fundamentals of a company.

He describes his office furniture manufacturing company as a work-in-progress and a cumulation of many years of experience.Yong started his entrepreneurial journey from humble beginnings, starting as a small wooden boxes manufacturer based in Salak South, KL in 1980. He set up shop in his own backyard and hired only one staff.“I knew I had to start somewhere to become an entrepreneur,” he says.

This entailed getting wood scraps from sawmills

These boxes were used by a Japanese electronics company to package huge electrical items such as washing machines and refrigerators.He made 12,000 boxes a month and production went on like this for two years.But Yong was practical. He knew that such a business was of low value and would be prone to having many competitors given the simplicity of the product.And true enough, over time, he saw more of such manufacturers going into the business.But Yong was prepared. He had built a new revenue stream for the company.“I started visiting European countries to look for products that I can market in Malaysia, and I saw demand for chair components such as castor wheels, chair base, gas springs, tilt mechanism and other things,” he says.Yong explains that it was not particularly difficult to convince these European manufacturers to sell him their products as Malaysia was a new market for them and he was, in a way, opening up a new door for them.

The company also uses robotic arms to ensure strong welding for their furniture components.

But just as he had predicted intense competition for his box manufacturing business, he was just as aware that his chair components trading business would likewise face heavy competition in the near future. After all, there would be others who will be able to import these products as well.So while trading his wares to chair manufacturers, he plotted his next move for another revenue stream.In 1983, he established Bristol Industries as an office chair manufacturing company. Their new base was in a rented factory lot in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur. This time, he had 20 staff.He has fond memories of the company’s first premises despite it being an inconvenience at certain times of the year. The factory was located in a low lying area, which was prone to floods, particularly during the monsoon season in November and December. Imagine having to use boats to transport staff and products in the middle of an industrial area! Yong has experienced it.But business was brisk.In the first year alone, the company managed to manufacture and sell about 12,000 chairs to various offices.Yong continued to look for ways to expand the company’s market.They started participating in furniture fairs overseas and in 1988, started exports to Dubai.“We have to compete with more reputable furniture manufacturer such as from Italy. We worked hard on our design and ensure comfort of our chairs. Seeing and feeling is believing! Apart from that, we also made sure our chairs are competitively priced as well,” he adds.

Taking shape: One of the staff verifying the design of the components used in the furniture.

Their hard work and perseverance paid off. In 1990, they moved into their own 18acre factory in Seri Kembangan, Selangor.Yong also saw more opportunities in the furniture business to venture into.“We saw that many companies prefer one-stop solutions where they can get a variety of office furniture instead of getting different types of furniture from different manufacturers. Hence, we started to design other furniture such as office tables, partitions, sofas to cabinets,” he explains.And that was when the company really started seeing strong year-on-year growth.

Today, they have over 50 products and have nine offices worldwide, including in India, Thailand and Singapore. His staff count has also increased to 500.In 2015, they achieved a revenue of RM38mil and over 70% of their products were exported to over 20 countries such as India, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and the US.“When you grow a company to that size, it is no longer about solo entrepreneurship. It is about having good people to help you and teamwork becomes vital. Next is branding,” he says.He also ensures that his employees are able to see what is ahead to motivate them to work towards the goal.“We are also very careful and concerned of section heads who are not competent and could stifle the growth of people in their division,” he says.Yong keeps tab of everything that is happening in the company, from the development of his products to the development of his people.

This is why he is seated right in the middle of the ground floor of the office, in an open area where most of the staff would be discussing about work or having a break.Another aspect that he shared about growing his company is to always think ahead, and in some cases, it means thinking about the rain even when it is still sunny.“We make a habit to grow with very little bank borrowings. During the financial crisis, we did not retrench any staff,” he states proudly.In year 2000, they rebranded to its current name, Bristol Technologies, and invested a lot in advertising and promotions to build the brand name.Moving forward, they are planning to build a factory in India, China and Indonesia, which Yong hopes would materialise in the next two years.

Bristol launches Acoustic Microarchitectural Panel System – Decibel 43

Bristol launches Acoustic Microarchitectural Panel System – Decibel 43

BRISTOL LAUNCHES ACOUSTIC MICROARCHITECTURAL PANEL SYSTEM – DECIBEL 43

Bristol will manifest its vision for better workplaces with an innovative system Decibel 43, an acoustic microarchitectural panel system that is aesthetically pleasing, colourful and functional.

The collection is a comprehensive approach to solution-driven acoustic furniture and accessories, designed to balance collaboration and privacy.

Tackling Workplace Distractions

As the open plan concept becomes more prominent in modern workplace today, there has been greater emphasis placed on curbing interruptions usually associated with it, mainly in the form of noise and visual distractions. Studies shows that it takes an average of 23 minutes[1] to get back into a focus once you’ve been distracted, which adds up to a big chunk of lost work productivity in a day.
Spurred by the demands of the modern open workplace for noise buffers and smaller carved out spaces for people to meet, Decibel 43 seamlessly combines furniture and Micro-Architecture to create versatile space division and enclosures while keeping the overall feel of an open and social environment. They are designed to work together individually and collectively to create practical spatial concepts for group collaboration and individual privacy to optimize productivity and creativity.

Designed for designers

The system was designed with architects and space planners in mind, to offer them the flexibility to plan large open spaces with acoustic privacy and the tools to personalize the system, so that the project could have its own unique look.

Acoustic comfort

As its chief function is to create acoustic comfort, we named the system Decibel 43, the unit for measuring the intensity of a sound and the thickness of each panel which is 43mm. After numerous design trials and prototype testing of the materials, Bristol has developed a proprietary composite that is ecologically sustainable, made from recyclable materials. Each system provides effective noise reduction, whereby the reverberation time can be reduced by an average of 60-65% in the frequency range of 200-2000 Hz.

Four new solutions under one series

The units can be offered in various sizes, and fitted with media and electrical integrations as well as height adjustable tables. A wide range of accessories which include shelves, document organisers, caddies, rotating tables are available. You can also personalise the unit with your logo, user name or serial number laser inscribed into the units.
Led by purpose, backed by research, and driven by design, Decibel 43 will help you design great spaces so that we can work better.
Since its inception in 1983, Bristol has consistently provided customers with high quality products that are not only aesthetically appealing but also functional. The company constantly strives to meet the needs of the changing modern workplace without compromising on quality or safety. Each Bristol product is made in compliance with international safety and durability standards.

Office Furniture Solutions For The Post Lock-down Workplace

Opinion

Office Furniture Solutions for the Post-Lockdown Workplace

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.” Never did we think a day like this would come in our lifetime.

This epidemic which took everyone by storm, changed the way we do business, the way we interact with each other and the way we work. Things will change once restrictions are lifted and offices resume and the workforce will fire up their engines to pave the way for India becoming a super economy but office administrations will face a challenging situation of how to manage the workforce within the offices.

Workplaces which were built entirely on the concept of open offices will face the maximum challenges as during this pandemic period close contact between work forces is the last thing any office administration will want. Being in the office furniture industry, we thought of sharing few solutions which might be helpful for offices existing and new to promote the concept of human distancing.

Installation of higher front panels

Firstly, the introduction of wider sized workstations of minimum dimensions of 1500x750mm to increase the distancing between the linear seating arrangements. Installation of higher front panel with height 500 mm or more with non-fabric material as fabric has tendency to soak aerosol particles which may be released when the person sneezes. More importantly, it can be easily cleaned or sanitized by disinfectant soaked clothes or sprays.

Encourage the distancing

Installation of panels vertically across the workstations to encourage the distancing between the workstation. New offices can think of bringing back the panel based systems which creates more sense of enclosed space.

Artiv workstation with decorative sticker on glass panel

Panel or cubicle workstations

Bristol has many adaptable products such as Artiv, Klug, Decibel 43 that are easy to install and promotes distancing, creating an isolated work space for the user.

Mesh chairs are easier to disinfect

Usage of Nylon mesh based chairs wherein the seating and backrest both are made up of Nylon mesh can easily be disinfected and cleaned without any damage to the material in comparison to the fabric cushion based chairs.

Mobile furniture for configuration changes

Installation of foldable / mobile tables for meeting rooms for easier mobility of the tables to accommodate appropriate distancing from the multiple users in the room.

Collaborative and productive environments:

Bristol believes in promoting greater collaboration and productivity in the workplace and has a diverse range of items to meet those needs. These range from acoustic panel systems (Decibel 43) that offer acoustic privacy and comfort, to modular sofa seating systems (Modu) which can be mixed and matched to create dynamic and informal meeting spaces.

Agility and movement at work:

Bristol offers versatile designs – Vertigo 2.0, Brava and Lift ranges – where height adjustability has been combined with technology to allow users the flexibility to adjust the height of their work surface. This gives them the option to sit or stand, or convert their work area from a formal one into an informal setting.

Ergonomics:

Stress on the body due to various factors can affect an employee’s comfort and productivity. Bristol’s multi-functional MYKO chairs with lunar support adhere to ergonomic and anthropometric standards.
