shared spaces

Shared spaces improve workplace dynamics,

connecting people to their workspace and each other

Shared spaces foster creative exchanges, and in many ways are the cultural heart of today’s workplace. Shared spaces play key roles in all planning approaches. They may take the form of go-to spaces for tailored types of activities, from private phone calls through team building lunches. The diverse range of furniture portfolio facilitates to provide a tailored and supported service to enhance the choices your people will make at work every day.

collaborative shared spaces


Collaborative working integrates primary workstations and collaborative spaces for larger groups in constant communication. A large table helps encourage free and frequent exchange between a team of four to eight people. Surrounding sit-stand desks and lower storage islands offer a communal, casual group workplace setting. While a continuous bench plan configuration can accommodate many users and ideal for a spontaneous, free address meeting setting.

breakout shared spaces


For broader gatherings, team meeting spaces allow a larger number of people to come to the table. Breakout team meeting spaces may be open areas or fully enclosed work rooms with either a large table or clustered tables, flexible seating options, work lounge, and digital and analogue communication tools. We all want to spend time where we feel good, enjoy natural light and fresh air, and can control our own comfort. Investing in well-being breakout areas makes people more engaged at work and more productive.

café shared spaces


Celebrate the workplace experience. Blur the lines between work and play. When we take cues from a good hotel or coffee shop, we’re creating spaces where people want to gather, connect, and participate. Communal areas encourage interactions where workplace culture can flourish. Common areas and cafés are large, multi-purpose spaces for social events or unplanned interactions. And on a smaller scale, ad hoc spaces with informal seating and table groups, lounge settings, and standing height counters with stools. Both encourage a similar sense of spontaneous, flexible use.
