Redesigning Where We Work and Learn

DESCRIPTION

Steelcase and IDEO have been collaborating for more than 25 years. The relationship has influenced furniture design across a range of environments, from work spaces to hospitals to schools, and has resulted in numerous design awards for pieces like the Node Chair for classrooms and the innovative modern office chair Leap WorkLounge. This long-term collaboration brought a series of projects in which Steelcase and IDEO explored moving away from the traditional office cubicle toward furniture that was more architectural and open. More than 10 years ago, Steelcase noticed that the way people worked was changing from static work in offices to more fluid environments that were technology-enabled with laptops and mobile phones. This insight led to design efforts that captured this changing landscape by a focus on intelligent work supported by digital products. Over the years, the two companies created dozens of award-winning products that had a huge impact on improving quality of life and comfort at a workplace.
