The Collective Approach
Extraordinary spaces spark extraordinary work. Here’s how we help you create spaces that are as beautiful as they are functional.
Teknion is North America’s leading innovator and manufacturer of pre-fabricated interior construction systems. Our Architectural Products Division (APD) is staffed with experienced construction professionals. APD is a California licensed “B” Contractor. Whether it be a single glass storefront installation or a fast-paced multi-floor undertaking, our team has managed millions of dollars in projects for some of the largest companies in the world.
Together, Teknion and The Collective are committed to superb customer service and on-time completion.
Whether you’re reorganizing, building a brand-new space, consolidating locations, or just looking to maximize your existing space, we can help create a high performance environment. Our CAD designers take into account proper clearances, electrical, and architectural elements when proposing a plan to meet your business needs.Learn More
As the way of work has changed, so have the spaces that we work in. The ancillary furniture category, which encompasses lounge, coffee tables, lighting, accessories, and more, is becoming primary furniture. The Collective has dedicated team members with extensive experience in our vast ancillary offering to ensure your project incorporates the latest products tailored to achieve your design intent and budget.Learn More
Change shouldn’t be a challenge. Our people, process and partners make sourcing contract furniture for your next office seamless and hassle-free.Learn More
We have warehouses in both the Bay Area and Toronto, and across North America through our proven network, where we can receive and store product. With our combined 200,000 square feet of warehouse space, you can be confident in having your inventory stored and protected until it’s needed.Learn More
The Power of Togethergy
Why should we gather in person? Collective Effervescence is a long-established term in sociology that captures a sense of harmony and energy people feel when they come together in a group around a shared purpose. And that's something we are proud to put our name behind.Read the Research
