Knoll Workplace Research Report – Immersive Planning

Knoll Workplace Research Report – Immersive Planning

Knoll’s latest Workplace study, reveals a workplace that is dramatically different than one of just a generation ago.

Defined as Immersive Planning, the model not only blurs the lines between work, life and play, but also individuals and teams, primary workspaces and activity spaces, and owned and shared work areas and tools.

Comfortable furnishings and fluid boundaries characterize this group-based workplace where the actions of the people themselves define the space.
