The materials and construction include
powdered-coated steel with multi-ply
laminate fronts. Juno preferred not to
use glue or paints on the furniture for a
raw and exposed look that, again, ties
to the concept of authenticity.
One of Juno’s main priorities is the
health and wellness of employees.
Each employee received a height-adjustable workstation. In addition,
to support an open and collaborative
culture, all workstations have low end
panels. The end panels are hot-rolled
steel with Zintra bolted into them,
a choice reflecting Juno’s drive for
authenticity as one of its core values.
Surfaces are 1-inch thick, multi-ply, wood-grain laminate. Each desk
also includes a powdered-coated,
magnetic white board, as well as a
Because employees at Juno often
spend long hours in meetings, the
surface was an important consideration. The solution was a multi-ply
surface with Fenix soft-touch laminate. The contemporary, triangular
base of the tables is raw, hot-rolled
steel. In addition to aesthetics, the
approach of bending a single, flat
piece of steel creates a strong base
for the table. The concept is also a
nod to the strength of the DNA helix.
The tables also include an elegant,
single slot running down the length
of the surface for cable access,
with the main cable hidden in a box
under the tabletop.
These collaborative meeting tables
were designed and produced in a
variety of sizes, drawer configurations and angles based on the
space in which they would reside.
An iterative design process was
used to address options such as
4-inch-tall drawers and an angled
edge of 45 degrees in line with
the architecture of the building.
Tall drawers are included to hold
Post-its and markers, ideal for
spontaneous meetings reflecting
the workstyle of Juno’s teams of
An elegant 20-foot-long table was
designed with an arched base. A
highlight of the design is an impressive top made of back-painted glass
that displays a layered-effect graphic
showing T-cells (ghosted-looking under
glass) that also matched other graphics
throughout the building.
