Public Office Landscape / Office furniture system

Public Office Landscape is a collection of office furniture designed fundamentally to augment collaboration in the workplace. With today’s technology, the only reason to work out of an office is for face-to-face interactions; the desk, however, has never been built to support these kinds of exchanges. This system is centered around the “social chair”, a unique seat that attaches to individual units, inviting multiple people to work together. Social chairs can also connect together to build private meeting areas and public benches. The system’s modularity permits flexibility to fill any space, and allow for a multitude of working climates.
