Looking to refurbish your workspace and wondering what’s new? Reporters out stargazing at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) were treated to a fully equipped, hi-tech, on-the-go workplace, at the IT Lounge in the Windsor Arms Hotel.
For the event, Grand & Toy, a Canadian supplier of workplace solutions, created an environment ideal for those on-the-go, outfitted with the latest technology, including multi-user workstations, individualized and flexible storage, laptop computers, wireless Internet, a gaming station and portable plug-ins. In addition, the lounge featured environmentally sustainable and ergonomically-designed furniture that address the needs of a modern, mobile work culture.
“We are showcasing an evolution of how people are working and the shift towards the ability to increase collaboration, communication and work within smaller spaces,” says Kevin Edwards, vice president, marketing, Grand & Toy. “This space was a perfect exhibit of how we learn to optimize a smaller workspace in response to numerous factors, including high real estate costs, environmental integrity and technological portability.”
