Holland Landing, Ont.-based furniture designer and manufacturer Inscape has been honored with 2008 GOOD DESIGN awards for their Planna casegood system and Fronté movable storefront wall system.

Planna is a storage-based casegood system that incorporates floating work surfaces to produce long, low, intersecting lines. Featuring a high-end aesthetic, it is a durable alternative for the mid-market category and can be used in private office and open plan benching applications. Planna is easily reconfigurable and can be integrated with any other furniture system, providing infinite planning options.


Fronté is a high-design, high-functionality movable storefront wall system. Measuring just 2¼ in. thin and available in expanses of up to 72 inches wide, the glazed façade gives a distinct, contemporary look to any design-sensitive interior application. Unlike wall systems requiring tedious disassembly, Fronté is a unitized wall assembly that allows easy mobility using a small kit of parts.

“To be recognized with two GOOD DESIGN awards caps a year when three of our new product introductions have been honored with multiple design awards,” says president and CEO Peter Brunelle.
