Living Office

Herman Miller Living Office

Herman Miller has been responsible for helping to shape and transform not just the way we look at American office furniture, but also the way that we look at American life. Through the pieces that this furniture design house has been able to produce wee can see the American work and the real soul of America. This image of success that we relate to everything that comes from the United States is linked to the efficiency and the practical style of the American.

The intention is to create new spaces of work having this practical style has a basis. Over the last decade or so, engineers, designers, and visionaries at Herman Miller have been working together, to create the essence of a new project and initiative known as the Living Office.

A complete and total revitalization of the American office as it used to exist. The team at Herman Miller has worked hard to find new ways to improve collaboration, to improve integration, to increase energy and productivity and to guarantee the future of the productive workforces in a way that wasn’t possible using the old office model.

Knowing that today’s office is far apart and diametrically opposite from the traditional offices of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and beyond, the new Living Office really encompasses companionship, collaboration, spontaneous interaction, and the ability to work as individually as in a group, in an efficient and effective way.

The Living Office is a space where people work together but still allows the performance of different tasks keeping their own space. It is a flexible space, with different environments where the same people can make use of them at different moments and being used by and for everybody.

The Living Office project understands just how vital communication is in today’s office as well as the importance of creativity and expression. Everybody knows that nowadays communication is all about technology and that we use a lot of electronic devices. This digital equipment allows us to share ideas and stimulate creativity. The spaces developed by Herman Miller, take in consideration all those digital appliances that we use and adapt the furniture and its accessories to all the equipment you need.

Far away from cubicles but not exactly a traditional open space, the Living Office has no rules and no structure.  It is something else entirely different and it is built off the back of research, testing, and significant amounts of development. Today’s open spaces are organized, with well-defined places that give workers the opportunity to do things together but at the same time it gives each individual the chance to achieve success in the organization.

Above all, this new concept of working space aims to provide each individual the feeling of comfort and wellbeing, improving the work experience and leading to the productivity growth where achieving goals turns easier and becomes a reality. If going to work isn’t a sacrifice anymore, we become more flexible, efficient and we contribute substantially for the company growth.

Living Office intends to be a human centred office, an humanized office. It’s the working space that has to fit people’s needs and not the opposite. Each project is tailor made to fulfil each company and each worker needs. It is possible to create different spaces for different tasks that at the same time reflect the culture of each organization.

In the end, it is a collaborative space that promotes workers proximity and stimulates creativity. It is a modern and comfortable space where work flows naturally where you want to work. With several environments for different tasks, this is the Living Office.
