Instinct connects with TAFE

TAFE NSW is Australia’s leading provider of vocational education and training with over 500,000 enrolments each year. TAFE NSW operates as a network of campuses where collaboration, diversity and strong relationships are key. The deployment of Instinct Furniture’s counters and staff stations in a number of Sydney and North Coast campus libraries, is all part of enhancing an open, friendly and connected environment.

In 2015, TAFE NSW Nepean College, Kingswood Campus, installed two GLO 1600 counters. GLO is known for its versatility, easily adapting as a roaming station, issues point or help desk, and with touch-button height adjustability, GLO enables staff to personalise their workplace to work safely and comfortably.

Also at Nepean College, our ASK ME 1350 Station was installed as a roaming help point in the main building foyer. ASK ME 1350 features a central unistrut for seated to standing height adjustment and allows room to mount a storage pedestal. Interactive ASK ME is highly responsive and mobile — simply move about your space as the need arises.

More recently, North Coast TAFE, Port Macquarie Campus, installed our height adjustable YAKETY YAK 2400 Service Island. YAKETY YAK 2400 is the largest of our ‘new generation’ range and features dual service points allowing staff members to work independently with students.

At around the same time both North Coast TAFE, Casino Campus and Kempsey Campus, installed our YAKETY YAK Oval 1600 Stations. YAKETY YAK Oval 1600 is a streamlined, height adjustable, issues / help station, featuring an interactive oval worktop — ideal for connecting with customers.

Further north our STEALTH 2100 counter helps bridge the gap between a traditional and new generation counter, at both North Coast TAFE Grafton and Coffs Harbour Campuses. Height adjustable STEALTH combines issues with help functions and whilst retaining the appearance of a traditional counter, it frees itself to become a freestanding island with greater connectivity to customers.

Our TAFE installations demonstrate the diversity of Instinct Furniture’s  range of counters and help stations. Andrew Blundell – Leader Campus Library Services at Port Macquarie Campus says, “Instinct Furniture have been very receptive to all our libraries requirements and needs.  We have bought several furniture and display pieces from Instinct, and when it came to remodelling and up-grading our customer service areas, we had no doubt Instinct would be able to provide the best solution for our needs.

Instinct’s range is modern, functional and user-friendly.  The ability to select laminate colours allowed us to get exactly what we desired for the fresh new design and décor in our spaces.  The functionality, and ability to select add-on accessories that worked with our spaces made the selection from the Instinct range perfect”.  Instinct’s design team have created furniture pieces that are not only practical, but become talking pieces in their own right.  We will definitely source from Instinct again”.
