SHIFT / Open Space office furniture


In today’s open space offices you often find open structures to fulfill the employees’ need for communication. This leads to a lack of privacy and possibilities of being alone. It moreover causes a high noise level, which makes it impossible for the employee to concentrate properly. SHIFT creates a place in an open space office, which allows several possibilities of use while fulfilling the employees’ needs and saving space. SHIFT is a rotating system and therefore can be used as meeting point for communication as well as it offers the possibility of privacy and private conversation, that would otherwise bother people around.
