Frame of Reference

Meeting an immediate need for a spectrum of spaces—while also planning for an array of future scenarios— requires a careful assessment of how furniture and interior architecture interact to define space and place. Architecture and furniture must reflect an understanding that the office is more than a container for housing technology and other tools, but has meaning only in terms of the people who occupy the office.

Thus, the choice of furniture and its organization, how it interacts with power spines, microarchitecture, and other structural elements, must address the essential, irreducible need for an environment that supports human safety and health no matter what the future holds.

The adaptable interior architecture allows companies to manage the allocation of space, modulate natural light, and varying degrees of visual and acoustic privacy—creating a fluid bridge between architecture, furniture, and people.

Acting as a familiar frame of reference, the space:

  • Employs micro-architecture and other architectural systems to provide space division and facilitate reconfiguration or relocation
  • Applies freestanding, mobile, or reconfigurable furniture to create flexible workspaces
  • Gives people at work control of their environment
  • Allows workers to choose the scale and configuration of their workspace, as well as the work tools required to enhance performance
