A Shared Vision for Design and Sustainability

Partnering with a global manufacturer like Teknion, who understands the value of great design, is very exciting.”

Future Plans and Expectations

While Modus will continue to operate as an independent company and retain its own brand, it will support its existing dealer network and contribute to Teknion’s sustainability and growth plans. The partnership is expected to drive significant growth for Modus and enhance Teknion’s product offerings, meeting the demand for a softer, more inclusive, and collaborative workplace environment.
