Campfire, a collection of office furniture from Turnstone, a Steelcase company, seeks to remind users of their favorite indoor and outdoor spaces to create a comfortable and collaborative work environment. The collection has six standard configurations, each inspired by different outdoor scenarios: island, oasis, base camp, lookout point, and wildlife. The collection includes a paper tablet-topped table (inspired by a backyard bonfire), a personal table, a bench/table, a lamp (inspired by a café umbrella), a screen, a lounge (reminiscent of a park bench), and a large table. The tables come in a variety of laminate options, and the lounge is available in 21 fabrics. campfirespots.com
