The biggest challenge for modern offices today is welcoming people back. Workers have found their own personal rhythms, and they just don’t want to return to a rigid, one-fits-all way of working. One solution to this is transforming offices into more flexible, creative and varied places. What if an office could be smoothly transformed into multiple scenarios – encouraging everything from convivial collaboration to solo focus – to keep everyone happy, whatever their work style?

Flexibility is key

Through prototyping and research, Steelcase has identified a diverse range of uses and tasks for Lares including sprint reviews, ad hoc meetings, brainstorming sessions, stand-up or hybrid meetings – many of which place emphasis on the social nature of work, where working together and collaborating brings the joy back to the process.
