The Evolution of Reff Profiles

“Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword. It’s integrated into the entire design process. Timeless, classic design is, in and of itself, sustainable.” – Brian Graham

Five years later, Reff Furniture introduced System 6, a revolutionary wood-panel office system that is still at the heart of Reff Profiles. Soon after, Knoll acquired Reff and combined System 6 with another Reff product, System Z and rebranded the furniture line simply, Reff. (knoll.com)

As workplace needs and design trends changed, Knoll adapted the Reff product line to meet those demands.  Committed to non-obsolesence, Reff panels can still be joined to existing System 6 panels!

“We’ve really rechristened the classic look for the modern workplace. We’ve created a series of freestanding cabinetry and credenzas that are lifted off the ground, so they communicate lightness in scale and a fluidity that are very modern. The same exact storage componentry comes into the open office, which really fulfills the original Reff promise of total, seamless integration of the workplace,” says Graham. “Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword. It’s integrated into the entire design process. Timeless, classic design is, in and of itself, sustainable.”

Building on the Reff tradition of high-quality wood casegoods, Reff Profiles offers broadened aesthetic options and increased design flexibility. Wood drawers are constructed with dovetailed joinery and all hinge doors use concealed, adjustable hinges.
