Insights

Elective Elements Open image tooltip

Steelcase and outside experts conducted countless hours of research and user-observation to learn more about the changing work landscape within the private office.

We studied how people work and identified new ways the work environment could better support the different ways they work.

Those insights provided both the inspiration and foundation for Elective Elements office workstations, making it an industry leader in addressing the changing workspace requirements in private and open plan offices.

Elective Elements Open image tooltip

Modern office workstations should:

  • Enable a smooth workflow
  • Support guest workers
  • Maximize the efficiency of space
  • Create zones for different work modes
  • Provide privacy and control
  • Accommodate technology seamlessly
  • Encourage alternative postures
  • Make space personal

For many, the image that comes to mind when thinking of a private office is a huge double-pedestal desk with a high-back chair, a credenza behind it and maybe a bookcase off to the side. That image hasn’t changed much in the last 50 years.

Private offices typically house the highest paid workers, and they usually allot more square footage per person than open plan. While many private offices have remained essentially unchanged for decades, the rest of the workplace has changed dramatically.
