Turn High Contrast On

Stephen Hawking Centre at Perimeter Institute

When Canada's focal point for theoretical physics expanded to include the Stephen Hawking Centre at Perimeter Institute, it turned to Knoll to create an environment that would inspire the Centre's resident scientists and easily accommodate the hundreds of international researchers that come to the centre for collaborations and workshops each year.

For its research spaces, the Centre selected a mix of Dividends Horizon®, which features new furniture elements that reflect contemporary workstyles, and Template® storage solutions, which create space-efficient storage options. Private offices feature either Template®, which responds to workplace trends and provides a more open, articulated office landscape or Currents Upstart® Tables, which offer practical, versatile solutions that address the range of functional and aesthetic needs of today's workplace.

Private offices also feature Moment™ side chairs and Calibre® mobile pedestals. Generation by Knoll®, used throughout the space, facilitates changes in posture throughout the workday. Its unique Flex Back extends the range of movement and is designed to allow users to sit comfortably in any position.

The main entrance area features Saarinen Womb Chairs and Platner coffee tables and the breakout room includes Florence Knoll lounge seating, coffee and end tables and Bertoia Diamond chairs.
