Informal meeting spaces in an open office environment are a great way to activate a workplace or kick off a meeting. Lighter scaled furniture and adjacent open space, centered on technology, provide flexibility to grow or contract seating as needed to accommodate various meeting sizes and postures.
This cafe creates a Social Space that provides comfortable seating to encourage interaction and collaboration with various postures. Haworth Collection furniture, paired with access to surrounding views to the outside help elevate this space and make it a comfortable place to connect with others.
Furniture applications in this zone support personnel who may not have an assigned workstation, offering a variety of opportunities to both focus and collaborate in an open office environment. Its adjacency to both the main entry and cafe, along with views to the city beyond make it a highly activated area of the workplace.
This area demonstrates how both traditional and informal meeting areas can be paired to support various types of collaboration. The use of glass, the ceiling plane, and shared views to the outside help these spaces feel connected.
The layering of spaces is demonstrated here in showing how a workstation can be a close neighbor to other Social Spaces and lounge areas. This environment allows for work to be done but the ability to be connected to what is happening within the office environment.
The relaxed, seated posture of the furniture in this retreat create an opportunity to recharge or fosters collaboration in a lounge setting leveraging technology. The leather sofa and the wood walls help create warmth in an open office environment.
