Codess was founded in 1994 by managing director, Peter Chonjacki who saw an opportunity to continue to supply workstations and partitions to customers in Australia after the closure of Codesign.
Considered the largest design and manufacturer of office furniture in Australia at the time, Codesign, closed down their operations in 1996. At this time, Peter brought the company and renamed as Codess Interiors Pty Ltd.
Since then, Codess has continued to manufacture the original AFRDI approved System 2 workstation that had been the preferred choice by Government and institutions across Australia and around the world since 1971.
Available only through Codess, the System 2 workstation is still the most durable system on the market today. Peter has since grown his business into one of the most reputable manufacturers, designers and distributors of workstation systems and office furniture in Australia.
He went on to design the System 4 workstation. The patented frame can be cut to any size and take a variety of screen fabrics and materials. He designed the use of a key system to link the screens providing greater durability and strength. The System 4 workstation continues to be most specified workstation system today.
In 2012, Codess purchased Desking Systems Australia and acquired the patent to manufacture the highly successful Neo, Freeplay and Beyon Beam workstation systems among a range of other products formerly produced by Desking Systems Australia.
