Collaborative Spaces

Designing for Collaboration

Collaboration, along with the open floor plan, gets a lot of attention as the new workplace paradigm. For some organizations the goal is to expedite the collaborative process. Workspace design is an important tool in reaching that goal.

Equipped for Innovation

These days, work environments are intentionally created to support the collaboration, learning and socializing that are integral parts of the culture of many emerging businesses. Common areas and meeting rooms include lounge seating that invites informal gatherings. Worksurfaces with convenient access to integrated power sources support the give-and-take of information sharing. Innovative furnishings such as mobile whiteboards, the Campfire Paper Table with its rotating top, and media-rich tables with seamless interactive technology help fuel the spontaneous creative process. Nurturing collaboration can be a goal of office design. The experts at NBS can show you how.
