One of the most common and nagging issues in any conference room is the need for adapters. Somehow, the one you need is never there, and precious time is wasted on trying to rig a solution. The Belkin Multiport solves that problem, making it easy to connect any laptop or other device to an HDMI projector or monitor. One end of the adapter features the four most popular output connectors: Mini DisplayPort, USB-C™, HDMI and VGA for broad compatibility across many devices. The other end features an HDMI connector to input content to your projector or display.

The design of aperture arose as a response to frustrations with the open office. Current solutions require a compromise between an open environment with separate spaces dedicated to private work and enclosed workstations with separate collaborate zones. The aperture line of furniture and accessories resolves both. It can be configured organically and intuitively, tailored to the interactions and circumstances of each person and team. It liberates workspace planning to think about work environments more like neighborhoods in a city, each with unique layouts and personalities.

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.
