A Plannable Storage System

A true hybrid product, Template brings Knoll systems expertise to the storage category, combing multiple storage and surface options to offer a unique kit of parts for designing open plan and private office environments.


Essentially a 15” thick panel, Template divides space and provides comprehensive storage solutions, including hanging files, simultaneously. Template integrates seamlessly with Antenna® Workspaces and Dividends Horizon®.


The compact, 15”deep footprint and dual-sided access give Template the versatility to be used in any workspace design: freestanding, as a spine in core planning, or as a workwall or architectural element in perimeter, team and private office designs.

Featured Projects

Using shallow storage units as space dividers was a concept that Knoll had been considering for years. As the open plan design philosophy moved away from the panel-enclosed individual workstation, and towards a more open, collaborative layout, Knoll saw a market for the innovative planning scheme. The central concept was a spine wall deep enough to accommodate hanging files, but compact enough to be used in between other systems components — basically a thick panel.

Antenna Design was brought in to realize the concept. With the help of Knoll team member David Noel, Antenna created a kit of parts, which could be used in literally hundreds of layouts and horizons to create efficient storage solutions while consolidating components and saving space.

By relocating the storage capacity of traditional pedestal and overhead units, as well as technology management, to the spine, the space around the primary worksurface was opened up.

“With the primary worksurface positioned perpendicularly, the horizontal spine becomes your back and forth, a conduit for collaboration,” explains Noel. Template’s dual-sided access also allows interaction between workstations on opposite sides of the spine, “It’s not two units back to back, but a yin and yang.”
