by Haworth, Inc.

In 2019, acclaimed designer Annie Lee sat down with Haworth’s Global Brand Director Kurt Vander Schuur and shared her insights on how social spaces are changing people’s lives.

As we return to the workplace, social spaces may be occupied a little differently, but they are occupied. Spaces that support the human experience of interaction and collaboration, as well as restorative activities continue to thrive. Hear from Annie about how sharing these social spaces leads to a culture of greater collaboration and a mindset of accomplishing tasks and goals together.
