    Concentrate

    The transparent nature of the screens allows workers to break away from their workstations to concentrate and think but still remain connected to the team. This element of visual privacy works also to help regulate volumes as teammates are aware of each other’s presence.

    A lack of spaces

    A lack of spaces

    A lack of spaces

    Traditionally, workstations take up the vast majority of the floor plan. Many existing solutions for non-task related seating are often bulky or not modular. As a result, workers often had limited access spaces that truly supported their needs.

    Personal Storage

    Personal Storage

    With more mobility comes the increasing need for personal storage options. We are working out of our bags at increasing rate and as such, personal storage should be accessible and close by. Further, open storage invites users to use a space.

    Mobility requires access to power

    Mobility requires access to power

    Mobility is not just a trend – more and more identify themselves primarily as mobile workers. As such, access to power to recharge mobile devices is an important consideration, but is often lacking in in-between spaces.

    Privacy

    Privacy

    We often break away from our workstations to seek out non-traditional spaces for deeper focus. Workers often pulled furniture against the wall, or positioned themselves to shield themselves and their information. It was clear there was a lack of privacy in these in-between spaces.
