While different planning approaches suit different organizations, one universal need is flexibility. A variety of nimble settings and adaptable pieces support the different ways people work and move.
The best planning optimizes the needs of individuals and teams alike. Discrete spaces for focused work intermix with areas that facilitate conversation, collaboration, and social activity.
A more connected workplace puts people at the center of their life-work experience. Welcoming spaces, like a good hotel or coffee shop, hinge on ambiance and social experience—important components of work.
Attention to the individual experience makes for better work, and healthier lifestyles. People want to be in places that make them feel good: near natural light, with access to fresh-air, and surrounded by products with adaptable ergonomic support.
