The origins of Orangebox lie in the village of Hengoed in South Wales, where the company was established in 2002. In September 2018 the company was acquired by Steelcase, a global leader in office furniture industry.
The original pedigree of the company was task seating and after having analysed this, they decided to focus on furniture alongside them. Orangebox points out that continuous research and innovation helps them grow and focus on client’s needs. Therefore, the company came up with a term Smartworking, which connects the pluralism of design choice and function diversity. Smartworking enables clients to work in new, more collaborative and more effective ways, and can help transform both the culture and efficiency of their organisations. The company sees its long-term success and growth in working with sustainable resources and on products that are designed to be easier to recycle and renew.
