Allsteel’s Townhall Collection Designed by Rainlight Wins Interior Design’s 2018 Best of Year Award. Townhall is a collection of movable soft seating, tables and accessories that is inspired by human-centric design – movable, but not mobile. The collection supports multiple functions, new postures and diverse activities and provides a system of components that create agile micro-environments with individual objects that complement and add variety to the landscape. The collection includes: Peak – a lounge grouping of chairs, chaises, ottomans and tables characterized by their organic, pebble-like shapes which vary in height and geometry. The asymmetrical design offers unique compositions to support a range of tasks and settings; Summit – a lightweight stacking stool, with footrest and slight ‘bounce’ allowing for movement; Picnic – a collection of seated and bar height tables, seats, benches and stools, narrow in scale to fit the ‘in-between’ space; Rock – a chair that provides a fun, captivating option to the rocking chair or beanbag and celebrates the ‘fidget’. Its unique shape supports an upright posture for engaged participation, while providing a base that encourages action and motion; Wedge – a high-back chair designed for moments of both collaboration and respite; and Cloud – a discreet and thoughtfully designed screen that provides privacy where it’s needed and is aesthetically pleasing when positioned on its own.
