Contrary to popular belief, meetings don’t always need to be held in a formal setting, such as a stuffy, enclosed conference room or a boardroom table. According John Symes, Director of Workplace at JLL in London, “People are working less conventionally nowadays,” which has given way to the introduction of semi-private spaces.
To foster creativity, productivity and collaboration, why not introduce some informal meeting and collaboration setups, that additionally work as Hubs for Togetherness. Of course, it’s important to take into consideration the culture of your organization and your workforce to see which solution suits your needs best.
Below is a curated selection of some of our lauded seating elements, intended for short-term use, that will help you move towards some form of informality in your workspace design, while fostering collaboration and a sense of togetherness.
