We are proud to share that we have attained our JUST label. The JUST program is a voluntary disclosure tool and transparent third-party platform for us to demonstrate our commitment to social justice and equity issues. It is an assessment of where we are as an organization in six different categories, namely, Diversity and Inclusion, Equity, Employee Health, Employee Benefits, Stewardship and Purchasing and Supply Chain. Within these categories there are 22 specific indicators against which we are scored on a 4-point scale. JUST allows for continuous improvement with a bi-annual review through the International Living Future Institute (IFLI).

Introducing: Bow Tie 02
Bow Tie takes a fresh, unexpected approach to showcasing Teknion furniture – an approach that highlights the element of fashion in furniture design, rather than the function and application of a product.
The result is a “look book” of images that draw one’s eye to the color and texture of fabrics, the glossy or matte finish of wood, the line of a silhouette, the details of a seam. This perspective borrows from the drama of fashion and builds on Teknion’s identity as a design-focused innovator.
Our Bow Tie collection reimagines the concept of “office furniture” in the same way – we need furniture that fits the way we work, but also gives us pleasure and kindles creativity. Fashion photography works in just that way. It is not only descriptive, allowing us to see, it is also provocative, inviting one to imagine.

Architecture and design are critical elements in achieving the academic mission of modern universities. Facility design, including furniture, expresses the institution's brand, reflects the quality of teh educational experience provided–and facilitates or inhibits the learning process. Teknion offers a comprehensive portfolio of furniture products designed to support the goals of modern educational institutions and the learning practices of students across the campus: a solitary student reading at a library desk, a group working in a project room, or a classroom of students engaged in a lively discussion while sharing ideas on laptops and tablets.
Designed primarily for lectures and discussion, the traditional classroom is still relevant. But today's active and collaborative learning styles also require a physical space that is flexible. Mobile, reconfigurable seating, tables and whiteboard screens allow for quick transitions across a spectrum of conventional and alternative models–including those where technology is leveraged to enhance teaching and leaning.
Faculty and Staff Spaces
To address the diverse needs of faculty, administrators and school leaders, academic institutions require a mix of private and shared offices, as well as open work areas, formal meeting rooms and multi-functional spaces. Furnishings must support the focused work of teachers, researchers and staff–and interaction among faculty members or offices–as well as casual or scheduled meetings with students and campus visitors.
Modern acadmic libraries are designed to provide access to services and resources that enrich learning via book collections, digital material and interactive media. The library includes private, quiet spaces to support individual student reading and study, as well as open and enclosed spaces that serve a range of group activities.
Student unions, residence halls, performing arts centers and other campus facilities offer access to a wide community of users, accommodating a variety of activities and encompassing diverse types of shared spaces. Common spaces may include student lounges designed for study and for socializing, as well as cafes and coffee bars, lobbies, and in-between spaces furnished to create break-out areas in campus buildings.
