Facing company expansion, they hired us to provide office space planning and new office furniture in Rhode Island . They wanted to move away from traditional private office cubicles towards a more collaborative, open office environment for their team.
Our office interiors team saw this small office design as a great opportunity to use O2™ Open Concept Office Benching Workstations. This modern collaborative office furniture system is engineered to accommodate a wide variety of cubicle configurations conducive to employee engagement in open plan offices.
This “bench” type of office desking system is characterized by low cubicle walls, continuous worksurfaces with minimal separation among individual workspaces, and a desk arrangement that keeps co-workers face to face.
The space available was adequate for an innovative zig zag desk configuration. This 6-person workstation joins V shaped desks with quarter-round curved desktops on both sides of 120-degree desk divider panels, resulting in an ergonomic desk setup.
For simple, understated neutral office colors we went with cream cubicle panels, white desk tops and dark grey paint for the trim, office power pole, and metal filing drawers.
This modest office furniture installation is a prime example of increasingly popular collaborative office interiors for small to medium teams of co-workers.
