A free-standing modular workspace solution developed by prefabricated relocatable partition specialist Clestra Hauserman has been recognised with a prestigious Red Dot Award.

A Red Dot is the international hallmark for new design concepts and innovation. Clestra Hauserman’s IRYS concept, developed with HOK Product Design of global architecture company HOK, was one of 5,200 products and innovations from 57 countries entered into the Product Design category of the Red Dot Awards 2016.

IRYS has been created to meet the challenges of fitting out open-plan offices by offering an aesthetically pleased modular solution that is functional, flexible and economic. Utilising the latest technology, it provides workspaces that free-stand to create autonomous areas within the office environment and are not joined to the building.

The innovative modular concept, which can be reconfigured in size, shape and location within a few hours, allows the seamless integration of features such as lighting, airflow management, electrical wiring, AV equipment and storage. Designed to enhance wellbeing in offices, IRYS can accommodate up to 12 people and can be finished in fabric, wood and steel.
