RMIT's Our Place, was an opportunity to express their brand through a flexible, agile and connected working environment.

Time-utilisation studies by ARM showed 76% of RMIT’s collaborative tasks involved two to four people.

Scout whiteboards are used in designated informal collaborative zones. Scout's mobility allows users to easily modify the space depending on the number of people.

In taller units, supporting the weight of so many plants and keeping them safely upright presented a challenge.

In pursuit of a solution, we visited with our specialist installation team to gain a complete understanding of the site.

We then worked with our manufacturing partners to engineer an elegant solution to keep the units safe and stable.

Our solution cost-effectively manages stability and extra weight by anchoring units to the ceiling, bringing the design vision to life within the project's budget.
