Tomorrow's employees require a balance between individual projects and co-working, which is why the ‘Flexible Workstation' is designed especially for them. It includes a privacy partition to allow the switch between social and privacy working modes, while also offering customisable vertical space through the universal rail system and the cork surface for pinning reminders. The desk also combines the needs of individuality and collaboration through the simple extension of the expandable work surface, which allows up to 3 people to use the space for co-working. Thus, focusing on an increasing trend in collaboration and a need for flexibility not fulfilled by current linear desks, the ‘Flexible Workstation' brings the third space to the office environment.
