Case Study: Octopus Investments Choose Steelcase & Bene Office Furniture

Octopus Investments is one of the UK’s leading specialist fund management companies offering innovative investment solutions to UK investors. Their offices are based in the heart of London next door to the famous Old Bailey Chambers, London’s central criminal court rooms.

Octopus Investments

We were recently contacted by the company to provide a range of high quality second hand office furniture throughout the building.

Main Objectives

Supply and install:

  • Upto 60 ergonomic desks
  • Matching mobile drawer pedestals
  • Approximately 100 office chairs with excellent support
  • An additional 50 or so mobile pedestals for the first floor

Our Solution

Octopus were specifically interested in our range of Steelcase Office Furniture and opted for the popular TNT Desk system and Please chairs. It’s also important to note that due to daytime access restrictions, we had to manage the installation in the evening hours. This was not an issue for us as we employ our installation teams rather than sub-contract.

Steelcase Office Furniture


Steelcase are true workplace experts and the global leaders in the office furniture industry passionately driven to assist companies create a better work experience for employees.

They recognise the importance of good ergonomics by designing and creating office furniture with the end users health and well-being in mind and in 2011 formed an industry-first partnership the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).


With all that in mind, Octopus chose the Steelcase TNT range with matching under desk pedestal units for the offices.

TNT Desk

The TNT desk is a real dynamic ergonomic desking solution perfect for the modern office environment they were looking to create. Not only do these desks look great, but they also suit a wide range of users and workplace environments due to their extensible features.

TNT Desk Side

The TNT range allows Octopus Investments to expand, upgrade or adapt the furniture at any time in the future thanks to the range of add-on extras available including privacy screens and third level desk storage as below.

To compliment the the desks and also ensure staff are ultra comfortable, the Steelcase Please chair was chosen for its active and intelligent support as well as it’s eye catching design!

Regardless of the users build, there is plenty of adjustment  allowing everyone to give their body the correct support, even when reclined!

The Please task chair is also the only chair with two separate backrests offering an unequaled level of comfort. All Please chairs are made by hand too so every little detail is finished to the highest standard.
