Comments Off on Kerel, a library table and carrel in one
Libraries have experienced a profound change over the past two decades. As they adapt, some things don’t change: the need for quiet space to read and study, and a place for group learning. The patent-pending Kerəl supports both of these functions.
Simply flip the Kerəl tabletop upwards to reveal a secondary work-surface with privacy panels – the ubiquitous library table easily converts to a semi-private study carrel. In a matter of seconds and on an as-needed basis, students and staff can choose the modality that best suits the task at hand.
The Milder Partition offers an elegant solution with integrated SoundSoak panels to dampen sound, and translucent Acrylic panels let in light.
In response to a general frustration with the open office plan, Milder Office designed a partition system that allows workers to see and be seen at their choosing. Individual areas feel open yet enclosed, enabling workers to concentrate on the task at hand without feeling isolated.
Research has shown that that people do their best work in environments that allow for both social ‘buzz’ and activity while also providing them with boundaries and separation. The integrated SoundSoak acoustical wall panels absorb 50% to 90% of the sound striking the surface – reducing noise within a space and reducing noise transfer between areas.
The Milder Partition can stand alone or can be mounted to our workstations allowing for flexible floor layouts that vary from area to area. The system’s custom aluminum hardware is typical Milder, sleek, and minimal. The pre-finished birch plywood and SoundSoak are available in a range of colors. We also offer UV printed Pantones colors to match branding or existing color schemes.
We first connected to the Henry Street Settlement (HSS) through our work and longstanding relationship with the Lower Eastside Tenement Museum, for which we designed and produced office furniture as well as retail fixtures and displays for their museum store. After years of negotiating with the city, Henry Street Settlement was able to add the Firehouse to their headquarter row on Henry Street. Working with Renee Epps, Facilities Manager at HSS, and a team of architects from Beyer Binder Bell, we developed and produced workstations and meeting room furniture for the four floors of the Firehouse. Because groups of workstations are clustered in relatively small and tall spaces, we worked with a sound engineer to limit the level of sound by adding Sound Soak panels and translucent Acrylic panels to our standard partition wall.
Individual single-pedestal workstations have partition installed on two or three sides, allowing for workers to see and be seen at their choosing. Individual areas feel open yet enclosed. The Milder Partitions can stand alone or can be mounted to our workstations allowing for flexible floor layouts that vary from area to area. Also, research has shown that that people do their best work in environments that allow for both social buzz while also providing them with boundaries (separation). The integrated Soundsoak acoustical wall panels absorb 50% to 90% of the sound striking the surface – reducing noise within a space and reducing noise transfer between areas.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to be part of this project team and are excited that the Firehouse has been put back into service for this amazing/historical neighborhood organization.

Library Carrels provide a semi private study/work space and are designed for the university and library settings where students and researchers prefer to work undisturbed. The height of the (three sided) partition can be modified to increase or decrease sight lines. Available as single or double sided, the carrels can be ganged to create unique spaces within a large open plan. For example, use a row of single sided carrels to partition a space for different functions. The carrels may be specified with lighting, storage/lockers, power and data, pin-wall surfaces and more.
The Basic Workstation offers a simple solution for the modern workspace while boasting a wide range of options for customization (scroll to see some examples). Add-ons include under the desktop wire management cubbies (channels), hangers, storage shelves, keyboard trays, monitor stands (or arms), wire cutouts, casters and more. The workstation has 11″ partial modesty panel on three sides and is available in a variety of sizes. Add casters and allow for easy reconfiguration of your space in response to work/team needs. Standard desktop height is 29″.
Comments Off on Single + Double Pedestal Workstation
Single and Double Pedestal Workstations are distinguished by a wide range of options above and below the 29” high work surface. Pedestal options include general or file storage in letter, legal and lateral sizes.
You can further customize by adding pin surfaces, a return, open and closed overhead compartments, wire cut-outs, power and data solutions, and integrated keyboard trays.
Our strength is in our customization and interest in collaborating with our client to develop the best solution possible.

Forget the cubicle and upgrade to the Milder Quad Workstation to create semi private work areas within an open floor plan.
You can determine the degree of privacy by adjusting the height of the partition or adding side partitions. Our Quad Workstation can be specified with a wide range of options including pedestals, partitions, pin-up surface, monitor stands, CPU holders, keyboard trays, and more.
Our strength is in our ability to customize and make these units match you needs and your space. We regularly provide plans and assistance in floor planning to our clients as part of our proposals.

The Corner Workstation is well suited to maximize space in individual office layouts. Corner workstations provide two distinct work surfaces, and can be outfitted with one or two pedestals. The stations can be further customized by adding pin surfaces, open and closed overhead compartments, a return, wire cut-outs, power and data solutions, and integrated keyboard trays.
