As workers continue to navigate the COVID era, the look of a workplace has become increasingly fluid. In order to accommodate the rapidly shifting needs of their workers, companies all over the world have completely redesigned their schedules and office layouts. There's a growing understanding that what once made sense doesn't work as well anymore, and will likely to continue to shift. While bright fluorescent lights and industrial furniture might've been acceptable some years ago, today many workers long for more human environments.
Designers like Mike & Maaike are taking note. Their new collection of Haven Social Tables, manufactured by Watson Furniture, presents a comfortable, dynamic alternative to traditional office furniture. Soft, approachable design is accented with vibrant color options and eclectic add-ons to build a space that's more flexible and inviting. Adjustable trays, lights, and high-low settings are just a few features that add personality and freedom of movement to these customizable pieces. Conference tables with oblong surfaces are designed to comfortably fit several people, while bars below allow participants to rest their feet. With the Haven tables, offices can easily build casual meeting spaces that accommodate a wide range of preferences. Panels and privacy screens are perfect for virtual meetings, while perches make it easy to switch between sitting and standing.
These charming tables have the added bonus of environmental friendliness. The Haven line consists almost entirely of sustainable materials, including 100% recycled steel bases, 22% recycled laminates, and 92% post-industrial storage components. With their strong, nontoxic adhesives and robust framing, these pieces are built to last for years to come.
Customizable features, inclusive seating, and future-forward construction make these tables perfect for shifting offices. These warm, thoughtful designs serve as a fantastic reminder that offices should be built for humans, and not the other way around.
The Haven line of furniture makes its debut this week at the NeoCon design show in Chicago, Illinois, happening through October 6th.
