Walking the Walk: Workspace Strategies in Action

What does space have to do with innovation and productivity? It’s a good question. As organizations look for new ways to compete more effectively, that question is becoming increasingly important. New research points to real estate as a critically important, though often underutilized asset. So what better place to test the newest workspace theories in a real environment than our own?

An important new concept in employee engagement is to provide a palette of places. Workers thrive when given a variety of spaces for individual tasks, for collaborative work, to conduct meetings or for informal gatherings — all of which are crucial to the creative process. Our redesigned showroom features an open, free-flowing plan with individual workstations, plus enclaves for more private or reflective work. The Four Square room is a modern wonder for group work or meetings that integrates communication and presentation technology seamlessly within the furnishings. The Café and adjacent Living Room are comfortable gathering places with lounge seating and presentation capabilities for informal meetings, collaborative sessions or just to take a break and recharge.

Theories move beyond the abstract when you can experience them as real, functioning spaces with practical benefits. Visitors to our showroom gain not only valuable insights into how a workspace can boost performance, but how to optimize a space to support the many different ways people work today.


This project showcases the power of NBS AFT integration (Architecture, Furniture and Technology). We believe that when these three disciplines are brought together early in the planning process, good things happen. Fewer errors occur, efficiency improves, and your stress goes down — because we handle EVERYTHING.
