Populous Partners with SIXINCH USA on Three Product Design Collections
February 11, 2021
Today Populous announced a partnership with SIXINCH® USA, the leader in unique environment solutions, to create three collections of innovative products. Their first product design collection together will debut early this year, combining Populous’ breadth of experience with SIXINCH’s desire to chart a new path for its brand.
“The SIXINCH portfolio was at a point where it needed to diversify. Our industry was looking for more options with our unique vibe outside of FlexPlus coated products” said Josh Taylor, Brand Director for SIXINCH. “As we explored the next steps for the brand, we met with the product design and interiors team at Populous and were blown away by their commitment to forward-thinking design and evolution of interior environments.”
As an industry leader, Populous approaches projects from the macro scale – site selection, architecture, and urban planning – all the way down to the micro scale of materials, finishes and furnishings, providing a unified experience and an interwoven story.
“Our product design efforts begin with the discovery of holes in the marketplace and our desire to provide our clients with the best possible solutions,” said Adam Stover, Senior Principal at Populous. “We’re looking forward to collaborating with SIXINCH to create flexible and functional products that tell an authentic story and give our clients the power of choice.”
Over the next few years, SIXINCH plans to create and introduce a wide variety of products to bolster its already strong coated foam offering. Product categories of focus include lounge, café, modular sectionals, and occasional tables. Populous will assist SIXINCH on multiple soft seating projects as well as suggestions for current portfolio improvements.
“Introducing products designed by the top sports architecture firm in the world is incredibly exciting,” said Taylor. “SIXINCH looks forward to creating a new line of innovative products with Populous that will help our brand evolve and grow.”
Other collections from Populous’ product design studio include the Pleat Collection with Tuohy Furniture in 2020, the Persona Collection with Neinkamper and the Canyon Collection with Bright Furniture in 2019, the Steve Collection with David Edward in 2018, and Lutta Collection in collaboration with Martin Brattrud in 2017. Populous’ latest collections will debut at this year’s NeoCon in October.
