Design News: Modern Modular Seating

When I first started with my interest in the design world I was able to secure a co-op internship with TV Ontario, there I was introduced to Commercial Interior Design. I had the opportunity to work with Quadrangle Architects and Teknion Furniture Systems job shadowing the 2nd floor renovations. With that said, modular seating was of great interest to me because of the hided compartments, casters, and arrangements- to name a few.
