The fine folks at Herman Miller created a great page on their site for anyone looking a new desktop, ipad or iphone wallpaper. On their Weaving Community page, Herman Miller asks, “As people work more together—much of it digitally—they place increasing value on interacting with others face to face. How do we define community?”
The enormous changes in how, where, and with whom people work necessitate a nuanced approach to workplace design. Community spaces for social and knowledge sharing are balanced with those that enable concentrative individual work. A variety of space types allows choice, helping people engage more deeply. Sixty years ago, designer George Nelson said the ultimate office should be like a daytime living room. We embrace his blurring of work and life in the Herman Miller Collection, authentic modern design for how we live and work today. – Herman Miller
