People at work have become more mobile – moving freely throughout the day, no longer tethered to a designated space. And the ratio of individual to group workspaces has shifted to support collaboration. Openest is an ensemble of lounge furniture that responds to this ever-evolving nature of work by facilitating the new landscape of today’s work environments.

Openest gracefully blends to create collaborative spaces: Spaces that are comfortable, warm, and inviting. Spaces that balance visual privacy. Spaces where teams or individuals can gather to share, present, and develop new ideas – or just relax. Together or alone, Openest provides a mix of furniture elements that help organizations customize a space for a variety of activities.

“The goal of this project was to design a very modular office system using a limited number of parts and moulds, and to combine them with furniture to create different working configurations and effects. Furthermore, owning to the convertible feature of the armchair and lounge chair – from chair to pouf – I was able to meet today’s increasing need for space and multi-functional objects within the office environment.” Patricia Urquiola, 2013
