AHH MOMENT

OBJECTIVE Research the furniture manufacturer, Steelcase, to understand how they are adapting their furniture to the changing workplace environment. Design a studio office space that incorporates the steelcase furniture and creates a collaborative workplace with a variety of seating options

CONCEPT

INSPIRATION

Shift is a change management firm that provides strategies for companies to adjust to the changing needs of their organization. From almost every angle, the visual impact of the Shift office design inspires employees and clients alike. The spaces need to keep people engaged, motivated and progressing. This is accomplished by incorporating angled elements and opportunities to travel through the space, whether to meet with someone informally or visit one of the many expression areas,including pin up and white board walls. Shift works with its clients to reveal their organizations structure and get to the core with a clear and transparent approach. This element is carried through the design by incorporating transparent cubes that house the offices and conference rooms, as well as, cut out spaces along the corridors that provide quiet spaces for individual or small group work.
