From Research to Realization: An Experience-based Workplace
Knoll‘s latest Workplace study, reveals a workplace that is dramatically different than one of just a generation ago.
Knoll found five significant factors that contribute to a new way of working and drive new thinking about the work environment.
- Group-based work is the norm
- Hospitality and residential influences enter the workplace
- Despite new alternatives, office is still home base
- Empowered by choice, employees make the workplace their own
- Management of the real estate asset is tighter than ever
Based upon these findings Knoll identified a new way to think about space.
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.
The result: an environment that creates a variety of experiences, transforming at a moment’s notice and evolving with use.
