Steelcase and Microsoft launch creative workspaces

Jul 24, 2017

Steelcase and Microsoft have joined forces in a partnership to explore how the workplace can more successfully drive creative performance by co-developing ‘Creative Spaces’, an interdependent ecosystem of spaces and technologies designed for the diverse modes of creative work. Some of the key areas would include a focused studio, a Maker Commons, an ideation hub, a duo studio and a respite room.  The focus is on acoustics, privacy, proximity, employee health and other psychological factors to provide a wholesome office environment. Maker Commons: Socializing ideas and rapid prototyping are essential parts of creativity. This space is designed to encourage quick switching between conversation, experimentation and concentration. While the focus studio provides room for individual creativity, the Maker Commons is designed to encourage quick switching between conversations, experimentation. The ideation hub serves as a high-tech destination that encourages active participation and equal opportunity to contribute as people co-create, refine and share ideas with co-located or distributed teammates. The duo studio, on the other hand, promotes working in pairs and creates a space where two people can co-create shoulder-to-shoulder, while also supporting individual work. The Respite Room as the name addresses the need to balance active group work with solitude and individual think time.
