Co-officing, co-creation and collaboration are no longer pioneering concepts; they're the new norms. The modern workplace calls for a totally new space-planning approach. At this year's show, we celebrated our newest, award-winning product offerings and debut concept applications, designed to give users ownership in how, when and where they work.

UNOFFICE THE OFFICEAs more of life happens within the office and more work takes place beyond it, we’re “unofficing” the office by bringing it back to people and humanizing the workplace.
We fuse residential and hospitality influences to enhance work productivity and create multifunctional, high-performance environments designed with user well-being in mind.
Read the research behind our approach.
We unoffice the office through 6 strategies that leverage environmental psychology, cognitive science and contemporary socioeconomic trends to address today’s workplace needs.
The conference room becomes the social hangout becomes the retreat area. Spaces are too valuable to be used for only one thing.
Visual and physical tactility—sights, sounds, scents—adds to emotional well-being, triggering positive memories and creating a sense of comfort and familiarity.
LIFE BETWEEN OFFICES
The best ideas can happen on the way to or from. Often overlooked connecting spaces like hallways are just as important as collaborative spaces.
THE KITCHEN TABLE
At home, the kitchen table is the epicenter of activity, a place for making, talking, learning + bonding. Similarly, community forms around an activity hub in the workplace.
BEING ALONE + TOGETHER
People want to work independently while still having the option to connect with others. Easy access to information and each other creates choice.
People are innately drawn to bioliphic spaces, which blur the lines between indoors and out and increase well-being and productivity.
A quick escape for a private call, video conference or uninterrupted focus when up against a deadline.
An employee’s permanent home in a workspace, or a designated retreat for one-on-ones.
A group meeting space for 4+, ideal for brainstorms or small-group breakouts.
