Workbays Meet provide a space for collective retreat in groups. The common denominator of all configurations is their emphasis on communication, as users always remain face-to-face. Depending on their size and positioning, Workbays Meet can be used as a waiting area, lounge or meeting room. Integrated benches and optional power and data connections ensure the necessary level of comfort and convenience. If desired, small tables, stools or chairs can be added separately.
With Workbays, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have developed a micro-architectural system that redefines the working environment and breaks with the typical rigid planning structure of offices. Yet Workbays not only provide office planners with a simple, multifunctional furniture system. They also offer employees the freedom to seek out the optimal environment for the task at hand. Workbays configurations fall into three categories: Workbays Focus provide places to withdraw for concentrated work and Workbays Meet create areas for communication.
Thus Workbays create distinct areas where individuals or groups can retreat from the general office environment to carry out specific activities. The units come equipped with everything users need: work surfaces, seating and optional storage and power connections. Workbays respond to the necessity for noise reduction and help to absorb disruptive sounds in the surrounding environment. They can spontaneously serve as telephone booths, video conference rooms, reading corners, quiet spots for a coffee break or meeting rooms – without sending participants behind closed doors.
