Swiftspace Unveils a Bold New Brand Direction with Significant Product Expansion

Swiftspace may be the best-kept secret in mobile workspace furnishing. Following significant product line expansions over the past few years, this mover and shaker has grown from a single line to over a dozen and is making new waves by introducing a new branding direction and revitalized website.

“We’ve always been focused on innovating workspace products that are mobile, that can adapt quickly to change – easily and quickly. In the new age of changing occupancy dynamics in the workplace, the need to add mobile-based furniture has never been higher,” says Rob Way, CEO of Swiftspace.

Swiftspace is living their brand by implementing change in everything they’re doing. “If I had to simplify what we stand for using one word, it would be, change,” says Way, “We were the first company to put mobility at our core when we started Swiftspace. Our customers are delighted when they see how our products can be set up, taken down, moved, and set up again – all in just minutes, with no tools. There are no loose parts and no punch list. And our products fold up using minimal storage space. Best of all, our Designer partners tell us that Swiftspace is modern, functional and attractive.”

Swiftspace has launched its new brand campaign using the chameleon as its key visual – a meaningful metaphor for the Swiftspace brand. A completely re-vamped website was also unveiled (swiftspaceinc.com). Rob Way explained about the new website, “Customers and Designers can immerse themselves in the planning process by viewing product lines in their choice of materials and colors, just by clicking their mouse in the Virtual Design Centre, which presents product in a virtually-staged office environment. We also added new tools to help Designers be more productive in planning workspaces with Swiftspace products.”

Rob Way said that they’ve invested significant time with customers and design partners to collect ongoing feedback to optimize the Swiftspace product line. “Swiftspace helps organizations remain ahead of disruption and build future-proofed projects that look great,” said Joe Ogno who is responsible for furniture and workplace strategy for Jason Office Products. Susan Lord, Dealer Principal at SLM Group says, “Swiftspace continues to evolve and make workplace furniture with flexibility, mobility, and great design options.” 

The company claims that there is no other company like Swiftspace in the workplace furnishings industry that fulfills the need for providing workspace professionals the ability to set up, move, take down and store workspaces in minutes versus hours, without tools, and completely DIY.

When asked what the vision is for Swiftspace, Rob Way answered, “It’s not enough to embrace change. Our goal is to help our customers master it.”

Taking Your Office Outside

Organizations can re-establish their office culture after working from home for months, with outdoor workspaces. People want to work outdoors for a variety of reasons, the benefit to our mental health being the main one. The other benefit is the ability to connect with nature and reconnect with co-workers. While we can’t ditch digital meetings completely, outdoor meetings have been a growing alternative. Outdoor space doesn’t have to just be for breaks and lunchtime. Create a productive outdoor workspace where people can safely collaborate with others and with Swiftspace you can easily move indoors too.

We know the importance of libraries for a community. More than just a space for books, libraries have become an integral community hub. For people to study, access computers, join local events, and more. We were happy to hear of the proposed bill for funding library infrastructure.

The major concerns for librarians regarding libraries of the future are mobility and multi-use space, which just so happens to be a Swiftspace specialty.  Our stations are engineered to fold to a fraction of their size, be set-up, taken down, or reconfigured at any time with no tools and without damage to parts.

The Future of Healthcare is Mobile

2020 was a year full of challenges, for everyone. Our lives were turned upside down. In a year of isolation and being away from family and friends, you persevered. You worked from home, you updated your office space for social distancing, you adapted.

In 2021 we finally have a light at the end of the tunnel, the COVID-19 vaccine is currently being distributed all over the world. With vaccinations underway, the need for vaccination clinics and centers has increased. Swiftspace offers mobile treatment rooms and consultation stations that fold to 15% of their open footprint. Stations arrive on casters so when they are not in use they can be stored away and pulled out whenever needed. An added bonus is how easy they are to clean, making them a great solution for healthcare spaces.

Check out how the VA Miami used our innovative solutions for their pop-up vaccine clinic.

COVID-19 Has Taken Workstation Privacy to New Heights

COVID-19 has changed so many aspects of our lives, a large change being how and where we work. With organizations looking at how they can safely bring back employees, there has been an increased focus on physical barriers to create safe distancing. We may not have seen the last of open collaborative offices with touchdown spaces and hoteling stations but, we are certainly seeing a trend towards private, single-user, space.

Swiftspace solutions are not only designed to meet present-day office needs but with the many mobility, flexibility, and privacy options available you can be confident in your ability to respond quickly to change. Swiftspace is one of the few product lines that has many different versions and heights of privacy options that are fully integrated into their DNA.

Don't replace your benching systems. Retrofit with privacy panels or Mobile Walls to create individual, protected workspace
Our stations are available in a variety of wall heights and widths. They fold to 15% of their size, or, fit through any standard size doorway.
Use a combination of Surround Privacy Panels or surface Privacy Panels to ensure privacy and protection move with you – from sit to stand

All our stations can be cleaned multiple times a day without degradation to the finish. There is also the option to have an anti-microbial treatment added – to learn more click here

Guest Suite to Office in 5 Minutes or Less!

In a previous blog we talked about how Swiftspace can help hotels who are seeing an uptick in long-term stays. Now, hotels can offer another solution for those who are not returning to the office.

Working from home is not for everyone but, some still may not be returning to the office. Hotels are not seeing the numbers from vacationers as countries head back into lockdowns or are still under restrictions. So what is the solution?

Instead of having empty guest rooms, hotels can turn them into 1 or 2 person private offices that can be rented out for a few hours or for a full day. Swiftspace can make this transition simple with any of our furniture solutions because they are all mobile.

Hotels are already equipped with Wi-Fi, printers, in-room coffee and snacks, and private restrooms, now all they need is mobile, flexible furniture. Any of our stations can be used, as they all ship fully assembled on casters so when they arrive on-site they can be rolled off the truck and into rooms to be set-up without the need for outside labour. Many stations can fold to at least 15% of their size and be rolled into storage if a room needs to be returned to its original guest room state.

From set-up to take down in a matter of minutes, check out this video to see our stations in actions.

The Height Adjust You Love, Double the Space

Now, more than ever, movement is important for our overall wellbeing. With many continuing to work from home or staying stationary at their office desk, we’ve all become a little stagnant. To help reduce not only our mental stress but also the stress on our bodies from sitting too long, it is important to periodically change posture, position, and even location.

Height adjust tables are a great solution for moving during the day, which is why we love the SHAPE. You’ve seen the single surface height adjusts on the market but, how many of those solutions allow you to bring two tables together to create one dual surface workstation? All the ergonomic benefits of a single surface, now with more workspace! AND it all folds up and rolls away when you need to move it or simply get it out of the way.

Add privacy to the work area, whether sitting or standing, with privacy panels. Attached to the surface, our privacy panels move with you, ensuring you have visual privacy even while standing. If you want to give your work area a more permanent look, with the same functionality, add our Surround Privacy Panels. Looking for even more privacy? Add panel extenders to your Surround panels!


With plenty of options for the Shape Height Adjust you can easily create a full office space that is an ergonomic dream, allows people to work their way, and is easy to reconfigure.

Swiftspace: Changing How and WHERE We Work

There is no denying that the way we work and where we work is changing. With many offices keeping their staff working from home, employees realized that their homes didn’t have areas that could provide a permanent 9-5 workspace. To help them with this, employers have been reaching out to Office Furniture Companies looking for solutions.

While working from home, some people are starting to feel wanderlust and a new trend is on the rise: “Long Term Stays”. Always wanted to book a month-long stay in the mountains? Or at the beach? Wish you could spend all summer at the cottage? With remote work, this is no longer out of the realm of possibilities!

The lockdowns have had us all looking for a change of scenery. Hotels around the world have seen an increase in travelers booking long term stays but, they aren’t necessarily prepared in terms of places to work. As hotels are usually a place to escape the office, they are now having to adapt to being a workplace and Swiftspace can help!

Just as offices are having to adapt to a new normal, so too are hotels. What was once used as ballrooms and conference rooms can now be transformed into workspaces and with Swiftspace furniture can easily be folded and moved, for when hotels can host events again. Hotels are now being faced with the same problem as those working from home. How do they create a private workspace in a suite that gives privacy from the rest of the family? Fortunately, Swiftspace offers plenty of products that are not only functional, they can also match the aesthetic of hotels.

There’s nothing better than an ergonomic desk, which is why we recommend the SHAPE for individual rooms. If travelers are planning on working in their room, they should definitely have the option of a sit to stand to keep moving during the day. For larger “open” workspaces we recommend the Fused, Flip, or Shape. Both the Fused and Flip have a small footprint and provide plenty of privacy and protection for users. All of our products are on casters, their mobility makes reconfiguration a breeze. Another benefit to Swiftspace? All surfaces can be provided with an Antimicrobial coating and are easy to wipe down after every use, aiding with the task of cleaning and keeping patrons safe.
