Freedom, flexibility, movement are the words that most reflect the spirit of the new collective spaces at work. Fixed hours, static operating positions, closed offices and meeting rooms disappear and make way for work places dominated by open, joyful, collaborative and multi-functional environments. Places that combine the privacy of individual workstations with areas of inspiring and stimulating meeting where everything is possible, and where productivity and creativity coexist in harmony.

To enhance inspiration, creativity and imagination, ACTIU has developed SHEY, its first programme of soft seating for offices and public spaces designed by Ramos & Bassols, a Spanish design studio that recently has been awarded with the IF Design and Red Dot prizes for its WING chair, another development by Actiu.

SHEY is a collection of modular seating based on an intelligent system that combines different sheets in the form of superimposed layers. The union of two basic elements configures the entire collection: a sheet that is used as a seat and another that serves as support of the structure. The combination of the different sheets allows the progressive lineal growth of the seating area, the addition of accessories and therefore the creation of intimate and cozy spaces in public areas.

Among its special technical features, the PUR finish is what makes of SHEY an aseptic product, treated in order to fight against pathogenic germs and therefore ideal for public spaces with a high level of traffic. A full range of upholsteries, leather or textile, is also available.

Sometimes the simplest designs involve high technical complexity, and this is the case of SHEY. With the aim of achieving a language made of light yet comfortable and ergonomic shapes, the designers Ramos&Bassols have developed for ACTIU geometries with internal complex structures and large molds that provide pieces with great quality and functionality.

The results is a sleek, very light and comfortable product, which hides a great robust structure and respond to the trend that aims to blur lines between home and office. Its wide range of models, customizable finishes and colours, lend to SHEY the capacity to adapt perfectly to various contract spaces: commercial, corporate, health, education or airports of high transit.

The video have been produced by Kamesstudio, a studio specialized in motion, graphic design and art direction, in collaboration with the creative studio Gettinbetter.
