Where Modern Meets Vintage

Sunny Space. Cool Spirit. Finishing Touches.

When gas services and regulation systems leader nexAir moved to its new Memphis, TN headquarters, the company turned to Parker Design Studio for an eclectic look and healthy office. Like the early modernists, nexAir celebrates natural light and workplace wellness with a space and furniture selection that together invigorate the senses.

Happy Together

A similar warm welcome, contemporary Reff Profiles™ tables are paired with the iconic Eero Saarinen Executive Swivel chairs for an overall  architectural presence that is both linear and organic.

Accessible Performance

Complementing traditional workstations, a Rockwell Unscripted Easy Table fills a naturally-lit conference room. Accompanied by high performance Life chairs, the space facilitates team meetings. And if there is a birthday to celebrate, just clear the chairs and sing. Together, these products provide flexibility without compromising utility and functionality.

Focus to Flow

Classic lounge pieces from KnollStudio elevate a space with a residential vibe. Warren Platner’s sculptural, mid-century Easy Chair, left, created by welding together hundreds of steel rods, offers a place to unplug. A restored vintage Mies Van der Rohe lounge chair, above, keeps things business casual. Both designs juxtapose the contemporary architecture—all the while meeting the dynamic needs of today’s workplaces.

Community Spirit

A range of classic and contemporary seating from Harry Bertoia counter-height barstools to David Adjaye Washington Skin™ Nylon chairs sets the stage for lunch or a casual meeting. The welcoming space injects the office with a spirit of community. Light blue Don Chadwick Spark® Series side chairs, paired with Dividends Horizon® X-Base tables, add a splash of color and unify the space.

Connected Concentration 

Panel-based Reff Profiles workstations, above, with a range of finishes as well as integrated technology support, provide the right balance of individual space. Recessed add-up privacy glass offers that glimpse of your neighbor, ripe for a quick check-in if necessary. Advanced technology support keeps nexAir ahead of the game, all the while relishing in their storied past.
