Keilhauer, 2012

TALK is a new seating system for Keilhauer. The idea was to create a new typology of benches with backs, chairs, and tables to accomodate and to optimize face-to-face meetings. The V-angle of the benches puts the people sitting into a natural talking position. With single and two-seat benches TALK may appear in many different configurations.

The large expanses of the backrest compose a privacy screen and function as sound barrier for open spaces. The relief seams enable the V-form and produce a visual display not unlike drawings on a wall. TALK defines a place in any space and encourages the "verbal sharing" in our digital times. As CEO Mike Keilhauer puts it "Talk more, text less!"
