Kimball Office announced today its strategic investment in ShareDesk, a global leader in agile workplace technology and on-demand workspaces. “Our exclusive furniture partnership with ShareDesk is a critical element of our smart workplace strategy,” states Wendy Murray, Director of Marketing for Kimball Office. She added, “Our collaboration with ShareDesk ensures that Kimball Office will be at the forefront of the workplace transformation, which is being fueled by the rapid advancement in technology.”
Mike Wagner, President of Kimball Office commented, “as real estate costs escalate, and activity based planning de-tethers employees from assigned workstations, the interior designers and facility managers need new ways to manage these complexities.” The collaboration between Kimball Office and ShareDesk will be focused on helping organizations optimize their real estate utilization, while also improving the effectiveness of the people who occupy the “smart” space.
Kimball Office announced last week that they are co-developing the 76ers Innovation Lab, Crafted by Kimball, which will provide the ideal workplace environment, and is expected to be a highly charged atmosphere and filled with entrepreneurial spirit. Murray stated, “This is the culture and corporate vibe that every growth oriented CEO will want to replicate. We will use this environment to rapidly solve workplace challenges and boost productivity with our smart solutions.”
“Collaborating with thought leading partners, such as Kimball Office, allows us to reimagine the workplace experience,” said Kia Rahmani, founder and CEO of ShareDesk. “By aligning the physical and digital functionality, we can transform the relationship between people and place. We are very excited to be working with Kimball Office. Together, we will provide an eco-system that can revolutionize the way companies manage and measure their workplace effectiveness.”
Wagner finished by saying, “The combination of a design-centric culture at Kimball Office, the industry leading technology and brilliant partners, like Kia Rahmani of ShareDesk and Scott O’Neil of the Sixers, is helping to shape a very exciting future. You’re invited to visit our Chicago showroom, where we will debut the smart concept during this year’s Neocon show, which is June 13th-15th.”
