2023 Best of NeoCon Gold Award Winner and HiP Awards Honoree, the Uku Casegoods collection provides an unexpected aesthetic for a range of applications from the CEO’s office to shared spaces and conference settings. The statement piece of the collection is an elegant, cantilevered table desk, that seems to float, with an architectural beveled base. The word Uku means to float in Japanese. Uku features many storage options including shallow depths for smaller spaces. These shallower depths can be paired with deeper storage pieces to provide visual interest. Storage can be hung on the wall for lightness in the space. A metal ribbon shelf provides a thin profile element that can be finished in myriad of colors. The unique pull is triangular in shape and seems to organically grow out of the drawer or door. Uku takes the needs for enclosed offices and goes beyond the basic casegoods offering with the ability to serve small conference spaces and multi-use offices. Credenzas and display components, including tackboards and markerboards, encourage collaboration and interaction.
