ARCHITECT Magazine Profiles IRYS by Clestra Hauserman
This freestanding, modular wall system is created in a collaboration between HOK Product Design and Clestra Hauserman, and distributed in North America by Steelcase.
“As open office plans have become de rigueur, it’s more crucial than ever to ensure that employees have quiet, private areas where they can focus. IRYS is a freestanding, modular kit that makes up a variety of pod configurations. A single pod can hold up to four individuals.
“Created in a collaboration between HOK Product Design—an independent division of the architecture firm—and French wall partition manufacturer Clestra Hauserman, and distributed in North America by Steelcase, IRYS can be assembled in a single day and functions autonomously: Built-in LED lighting, electrical wiring, AV equipment, and a ventilation system operate independently from the larger building’s systems.”
