Expansion Cityline

Expansion Cityline is a furniture system that offers an active setting that allows people to move, gather and disperse when privacy and focus are desired. Inspired by the definitive patterns of the urban landscape, the system is based on the concept of planning for a workplace that is as diverse and dynamic as a modern city. With a unique beam framework and a robust accessories program, Expansion Cityline creates workstations, collaborative spaces and mixed-use areas in which people can feel comfortable and empowered as they pursue individual and collective goals. With the idea of mixing the benefits of both panel and benching configurations in mind, the designers undertook the design for a new desk-based system. Even before the first line was drawn or any visual concepts sketched, key design statements were identified. The result: a guideline that included planning flexibility with 90-degree configurations as a panel system.

Ideation Collection

Ideation is a collection of textiles that reflects a modern vision with an experiential approach to design. The collection draws inspiration from architecture and provides fresh perspectives by using classic materials in new ways. Modulus, Seismic Shift, Digi Tweed and Heather Tech strengthen designer toolboxes by providing nimble basics and multiple utilitarian colors. An abstracted and simplified approach to pattern allows color and texture to drive the collection. Two upholstery patterns—Modulus and Seismic Shift—explore spatial dimensions through color-value relationships. The multi-purpose textures Heather Tech and Digi Tweed feature coordinating shades inspired by honest tinted materials like brick and concrete.

Shinola Power Supply Collection

The Power Supply Collection is part of Shinola’s launch into the home goods category. Shinola collaborated with Astro and General Electric to celebrate a heritage of innovation spanning 125 years. The Power Supply Collection includes a 5 port + USB, a 2 port + USB, and an extension cord. Astro helped define Shinola’s visual design language, pulling from many details established across disparate products, including watches, leather goods and bicycles. The substantial casing is made from die-cast metal finished with a powder coating. The curvature of the top surface introduces the same finesse found in Shinola’s watches. A rubber base provides grip, and the custom over-braided cords are durable, designed to prevent kinks or bends.
