NeoCon 2020: Need benching that’s more flexible? This one now offers freestanding surfaces, wraparound privacy screens, under-core shelving

by Brianna Crandall — July 8, 2020 — Inscape, a designer and manufacturer of furnishings for the workplace since 1888, recently announced the addition of freestanding mobile applications to its award-winning RockIt light-scale bench. Introduced as a linear bench, RockIt has evolved to include 90-degree planning and now freestanding mobile applications to provide a complete workspace solution for today’s workplaces.

A wide range of applications can be configured through RockIt’s simple and flexible bench platform. By rotating the surfaces 90 degrees from the linear RockIt core, and adding surface-mounted privacy screens, RockIt can achieve more private workstations with a systems feel while using light-scale benching components in the open environment.

RockIt’s accessory-driven powered core can now be unlinked from the surfaces to become a truly freestanding and adaptable spine. Along with new under-core shelving, the fully mobile electric height-adjustable tables offer control over when and where users want to work. Soft-touch surface-mounted screens provide privacy and a visual harmony that builds upon the aesthetically pleasing bench, says Inscape.

User-adjustable accessories, storage, and privacy screens simply click, hang or pop in or out of place on a multipurpose channel in the frame and leg. Inscape’s range of accessories includes storage, planters, and a place to plug in, and are available in a wide array of colors and finishes.

Screens and modesty panels provide visual and acoustic privacy, including a wraparound screen for mobile worksurfaces.

RockIt’s balance of modern design and sophisticated materials enables industrial chic, mid-century modern, or even traditionally conservative environments. From white and light wood tones to darker, more dramatic residential-type finishes, RockIt offers options to achieve a range of looks.
