Scala
Scala is a slim profile, contemporary furniture system that offers both beauty and functionality. Scala's crisp, linear lines are achieved with thinner panels and tiles that measure up to 96  wide. Scala provides a residential fit and feel with the strength of steel to provide functionality and durability. Unsurpassed in its category, Scala's 2.5  thin panels offer a slim profile with a light-scale feel. Planning flexibility is an integral feature built into the design of Scala to meet the evolving work styles of today's knowledge workers. Designed to be scalable, Scala can create work environments ranging from open to closed spaces, panel to storage based and contract to residential aesthetic. Scala integrates with Inscape's Planna casegood system and Storwal storage based system to offer unique planning capabilities and superior aesthetics. The inspiration for Scala came during a brainstorming session of Inscape executives. While examining the prototype for a floor-to-ceiling wall, company President Peter Brunelle came up with the idea to flip the wall on its side to create a long, linear furniture system. Scala is the fruit of this inspiration. To minimize impact on our environment, we have maximized the use of recyclable materials in the production of Scala. Fully recyclable steel and MDF are utilized where possible and product is being manufactured under one roof. Scala is GREENGUARD certified. Scala has been honored with a Best of NeoCon Silver award, as well as a Silver Innovation award at IIDEX/NeoCon Canada.
