New Order - Studio Visit

Together with HAY, designer Stefan Diez has elevated the functionality and quality of the New Order system. We visited Stefan at his studio in Munich to talk about the New Order shelving system and the workspace solutions it creates.

New Order shelving system aimes to address the ever-changing demands of today’s work environment.

New Order is an open-ended system comprising interconnecting aluminium parts and modular elements, enabling infinite combinations and applications. The infrastructure has been extended to include tables, panels, drawers and doors, as well as workspace management solutions. Like the original design, New Order 2.0 can be installed using a single Allen Key.
