In a recent TED Talk, innovator Daan Roosegaarde called creativity “the new capital.” As organizations continue to accelerate digitization, effectiveness and efficiencies are no longer enough to grow the business. Organizations are looking for ways to boost the creativity of their people to encourage innovation.
Steelcase and Microsoft recently joined together to launch Creative Spaces, an immersive ecosystem that brings together space and technology to help people generate new ideas and move them forward. This new set of Creative Spaces includes a range of places and technologies to enable a creative rhythm. The collection of spaces includes places to focus, collaborate, make, ideate and rejuvenate.
The Creativity Ideabook provides key insights and information around planning for creativity in the workplace.
Designers thoughtfully crafted the initial five Creative Spaces to enhance the kinds of work they are intended to support. Like every organization, each Creative Spaces application will be unique. In the photo galleries below, Steelcase and Microsoft invite you inside the initial five Creative Spaces.
