Inscape has supported the evolution of the workspace since 1888.
Our versatile portfolio of systems, storage, walls and seating products addresses the diverse needs of today’s office with solutions that stand the test of time – built to last and inherently flexible. Dedicated to delivering innovative solutions with care and expertise, Inscape is here to help you make life at work better.
Founded as Office Specialty™ in 1888 in Rochester, New York, our company forged an early reputation for reliable, high quality filing and storage products. Expanding our offerings while maintaining top quality design and manufacturing standards, we grew steadily throughout the 20th century before becoming a public corporation in 1997 (TSX: INQ) and officially adopting the name Inscape in 1999. A leader in innovative solutions, Inscape was the first to introduce rolodex files, vertical files, true lay-in capability in panels and the 1½” solution which adds 20% capacity to storage units. Today, Office Specialty remains the name of our storage division and we recently celebrated our 125th anniversary.
In 2014, we launched an exclusive collaboration with West Elm: West Elm Workspace with Inscape brings a new way to work to the commercial furniture market.
