OFS acquires adaptive architecture company, ROOM

OFS recently acquired ROOM, a renowned name in adaptive architecture specializing in modular workspace products.

According to the company, this partnership marks a significant milestone for OFS, as it unites ROOM with Carolina, Bryan Ashley, and Styline Logistics, enhancing the company’s range of outstanding products, solutions, and services across any environment or space.

OFS will channel production through the company’s local manufacturing facilities. To facilitate production the company has created a new line within the manufacturing facility, as well as cross-trained current employees. This new line and upskilled manufacturing team will also further leverage investments the company has made in new equipment over the last few years. 

ROOM has carved a niche in the market with its state-of-the-art adaptive architecture products, designed to offer more privacy and flexibility. By joining forces with OFS, ROOM’s expertise in creating adaptable, space-efficient solutions will be complemented by OFS’s wide range of high-quality furniture offerings. 

“This partnership is more than just bringing two companies together; it’s about redefining the future of workplace design,” said Ryan Menke, Chief Revenue Officer of OFS. “With ROOM’s innovative approach to adaptive architecture, we are now better positioned to meet the ever-changing needs of modern workspaces. OFS and ROOM complement each other, sharing a mutual goal of enhancing the environments where we live and work.”

Soundproof office pods and office phone booths for the new workplace.

Founded in 2018, ROOM offers a range of modular office pods that cater to the needs of modern workspaces. Known for its sustainable and user-friendly designs, ROOM has been a game-changer in the way workspaces are conceived and utilized. 

“The way we work has changed, and flexibility is paramount. Modular construction is flexible to change and more affordable and faster to deploy, making it a far better investment than traditional construction. And, it’s more sustainable for the planet. Our suite of modular products is engineered with recycled materials and replaces multiple cycles of construction, minimizing noise and our environmental footprint. So, we’re not just designing workspace products, we’re designing a better way of working,” said Morten Meisner-Jensen, co-founder of ROOM.
