Stride by Allsteel
This is how Allsteel describes Stride:
Comprised of work surfaces, storage and space division, Stride offers a cohesive approach to space planning. Its nearly limitless solutions work seamlessly in workplace settings ranging from open plan to private office.
While Stride is distinguished by architectural detailing and new finishes, its appeal lies as much in its vast menu of configurations as in its stylish appearance. Incorporating novel features and storage details that typify sleek Euro-style kitchen cabinetry, Stride was the result of a design collaboration between Allsteel and Mitch Bakker, owner of IDa Design, a Zeeland, MI-based firm.
Stride is also a notable achievement in sustainability, reflecting Allsteelâ€™s commitment to environmental responsibility. It is the first furniture solution from Allsteel conceived and built from the ground up to be Cradle-to-Cradle certified, Indoor Advantage Gold certified and compliant with the 2008 passage of BIFMA Design for the Environment. Allsteelâ€™s â€˜take-backâ€™ policy assures the company will reclaim any Stride component once it has reached the end of its useful life.
