The design of a vast manufacturing facility built five years ago has proved so successful that Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation chose to repeat the formula for their latest project

Model workplace


Repeat business is always a good product endorsement – especially when it applies to furniture that has been in use for several years. When Fisher & Paykel Healthcare looked to source office furniture for the new Stewart building, they chose the customised OfficeMax system already in use in the O'Hare building.

John Barber from OfficeMax says workstations, desk returns, book shelves, cupboards and credenzas are all in Bestwood Best Tawa Melamine.

"The furniture has been built to set measurements, so that the individual pieces can fit together to form a pod," he says. "It is also designed with the flexibility to be put together in different ways according to changing needs. No matter how the layout is arranged, the furniture will have a seamless look."

Storage options include wardrobes for coats, and low cupboards that can accommodate printers and fax machines. Desks have shelves beneath the desktop to help reduce clutter.

OfficeMax also supplied Eos Graphic 2 workstation chairs, which are upholstered in Fabriche Momentum Aspen fabric.


"The chairs are ergonomically designed with good lumbar support, and they are fully height- and back-adjustable," says Barber
