As visitors arrive, they will be greeted at a communal oak café table by a concierge, before entering the WorkCafé – a welcoming and informal space, where guests and Steelcase employees can dine, meet, socialise and connect, kickstarting the showcase of an array of workplace settings: Focus, Collaborate, Connect and Rejuvenate. The identity of this WorkLife Center pays homage to the city’s traditional past while celebrating its dynamic, technology-driven present and future. Drawing upon the city’s agricultural heritage and its recognition as India’s ‘Garden City’, the architecture of the space forms a pristine backdrop of natural materials, textures and colours, allowing the carefully curated collections showcased within to infuse vibrancy and become the focal point.
