  • Collaborate provides seating at tribute dinner for President Gerald R. Ford

    Dates: 08 May, 2013 – 01 Jan, 2014

    The Haworth Collection's Collaborate seating adorned the stage during a tribute dinner for President Gerald Ford on what would have been his 100th birthday. The tribute, held Monday, May 6, was organized by the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation and included several members of Ford's staff.

    The Centennial Birthday Celebration tribute dinner featured light hearted remembrances by Dick Cheney, former vice president of the United States and President Ford's chief of staff; Ben Stein, White House speechwriter during the President Richard Nixon and Ford administrations; Bob Schieffer, a CBS White House correspondent during the Ford presidency; and Steven Ford, son of President Ford.

    The evening's guests also included former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Lt Gen Brent Scowcroft who served as National Security Advisor for both Ford and President George H.W. Bush, and many others who served alongside Ford.

    The four men on stage swiveled on the Collaborate chairs as they traded stories about Ford, highlighting his sense of warmth, athleticism, and courage. Most of the anecdotes, however, had the audience laughing along with Ford's former colleagues and son.

    “President Ford was from West Michigan before becoming a world leader,” said Kim Moran, Haworth Collection Marketing Manager. “It was a honor for the Haworth Collection to have been a part of this heartwarming tribute to a beloved American president.”

  • Automobile Enthusiasts Bring the Opulence of a Maserati to the Office

    Dates: 14 Jan, 2013 – 31 Jan, 2014

    DETROIT – January 14, 2013 – The Haworth Collection provided a timeless lounge environment at The 2013 Gallery, the North American International Auto Show’s (NAIAS) premier VIP experience.  The Gallery, which kicks-off the 2013 NAIAS, showcased more than 25 luxury vehicles and included a strolling pre-glow dinner by renowned Chef Wolfgang Puck as well as a post-glow fashion event.  The Haworth Collection is a compilation of Italian brands Cappellini, Cassina, Castelli, and Poltrona Frau.

    Leaders in the automotive industry have recognized Poltrona Frau’s leather quality and expertise.

    “The same high-quality leather used to create the Poltrona Frau furniture featured in the Haworth Collection is the same material used in the interiors of luxury vehicles like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Jaguar, and Porsche,” said Dan Tuohy, collections manager at Haworth.  

    Poltrona Frau’s expertise in furniture making is combined with more than 100 years of producing leather. The Italian company’s patented ‘Pelle Frau’ goes through a 21-step tanning process that creates tactile warmth & softness while maintaining contract grade durability resulting in the finest quality full-grain leather.

    In addition to Poltrona Frau furniture, the Haworth Collection luxury lounge will also include select Cappellini, Cassina, and Castelli products.  The Gallery took place on Saturday evening at the MGM Grand Detroit.  



  • Global Design Forum - Santa Monica, CA

    Dates: 04 Dec, 2012 – 31 Jan, 2014

The discussion was moderated by Susan S. Szenasy, Editor in Chief of METROPOLIS Magazine.

    The showroom welcomed guests from San Francisco to Seattle for an evening of inspiring stories and insightful design methods. Giulio Cappellini, for example, commented on his company’s commitment to design: “Cappellini believes in long sellers vs. best sellers. We stand behind our products even if we only sell a few per year. It is our true design commitment to an idea.

  • LTB at Orgatec 2012

    Dates: 31 Dec, 2012 – 31 Jan, 2014

    Haworth presents enhancements to its LTB lounge furniture range at Orgatec 2012. LTB mixes home comfort with office furnishings and addresses emerging work styles, which stem from increased worker mobility, collaboration, and impromptu meetings.

    Enhancements to the LTB furniture range include additional choice of seat depths, reversible symmetrical armrests and shared armrests, an optional comfort upholstery, small round tables, bookcases with integrated screens, and a light, easy-to-use vertical dimension for partitioning. Additionally, small mobile stools on castors and a new Solo chair will complement the range. The Solo chair aims to reduce visual and audible distractions, making it the ideal spot for a quick phone call or a quiet break.

    The office is no longer the sole location to welcome customers and meet with colleagues. In becoming more mobile, employees have to find new places to work, engage guests, and collaborate with groups. As new working habits are developed, organisations must adapt by reconsidering the use of public areas and the relative distribution of working environments. LTB naturally blends into, and extends, areas that historically were not often used as a workspace, such as: airport lounges, campus common rooms, hotel lobbies or company hallways.

    Dedicated to collaborative spaces, LTB debuted at Orgatec 2010. Its versatility is evident in the wide scope of applications it can create including reflective, dynamic or interactive collaboration. LTB echoes the name of the designers Le Téo & Blet while also conjuring up associations with the people who are at the very heart of the work performance: Living, Thinking, Being together at work.
