Taking only the most essential components of a workstation and adding a third component- the daybed, the Integrated Workstation provides maximum flexibility in a very modest footprint. Standing, sitting, and reclining are each given an equal and accommodating space, making a strong statement about new behaviors and postures in the office.
Integrated workstation provides a place to charge tablets, laptops, and cell phones. It encourages a range of postures throughout the day, which is better for mental, emotional, and physical health. By integrating a reclining surface into the mix, the stigma of putting one’s feet up is eliminated. A clear statement is made that an employee’s health is respected in the office culture. And naturally, a healthy, respected person is a more productive person.
The Integrated Workstation was developed for Herman Miller and resulted from a partnership between Cranbrook Academy of Art and Herman Miller and was the result of a design brief that aimed to promote rest and concentration in the workplace.
