It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for …
Our 2023 catalog is here! But, wait. There’s another surprise waiting for you – we’ve updated our catalog to make navigating and finding products easier than ever! Here are some of the main changes you’ll see while you browse through the catalog:
1. Color-coded and updated categories
One of the main changes we’ve made to our 2023 catalog is updating our categories and implementing color coding! Previously, there was no easy way to search by category when browsing through our catalog. Now with our new categories and color-coding system, you’ll be able to visually and quickly identify items. In the future, our website will also reflect the new categories within the catalog, making it easier to search than ever before.
2. Product brand names
While you look through the new catalog, you’ll also notice new brand names for some of your favorite products. These brand collections will not only help you navigate through the catalog, but also help you when designing and trying to understand which furniture you should incorporate into your learning space. Here’s the list of the new brand collection groupings you’ll see and the meaning behind the names:
- Name Change Meaning: The “Perpetu” part of the PerpetuLab collection name refers to “perpetual”, meaning “never ending or changing”. We wanted to highly the durability and high-quality nature of the products, and showcase how they’re built to last. The “Lab” part of the collection name gives a nod to how the furniture is meant to be used within lab environments.
- Products Included: Wooden Leg Tables, Steel Leg Tables, Imprint Tables, A7 Science Tables, Microscope Cabinets, Skeleton Cabinet and Torso Cabinet
