Leeds-based Definition Audio Visual has recently completed an installation at York’s Staycity Aparthotel in collaboration with bespoke furniture supplier Quadra.
Staycity Aparthotel’s business suite needed to offer multiple furniture configurations as it will be hired out for meetings, training and other events.
Staycity’s procurement team were working on the fit out project with audio visual contractor Mark of Definition Audio Visual who was installing the AV kit for the room.
When they started discussing bespoke furniture requirements Mark brought Quadra on board.
The Staycity team visited Quadra’s workshops and were shown the workshop and demo suite. Following the visit Quadra made a site visit so we could measure up and work out the layout, we then designed custom tables based on the multi functional requirements the room had. The tables were made light and easy to move, so the room could be easily set up in classroom, meeting or open space configuration. We also designed and built a matching lectern and 3 compartment cabinet. Quadra also supplied the chairs which are a cantilever design meaning they are stackable making them easy to move and store.
Mark at Definition AV asked Quadra to work up the designs based on their customers specific requirements and room constraints.
After looking at multiple design options for the tables we opted for quick release tubular legs which gave better leg space for each user.
The tables when in meeting configuration needed a removable centre panel which we made in contrasting black, with chrome cable grommets to enable equipment to be located on the desktop. The Staycity procurement manager looked at various samples when he visited Quadra and chose Cherry melamine finish.
Following various designs and adjustments the final design was signed off.
We were able to quickly turn this project around and into production within a short period of time as there was an impending open date to achieve.
