Today’s office spaces are constantly changing as they adapt to the needs of workers.  They’ve become less about individual space and more about collaborative work areas.  Here are 4 reasons why our new Arrange tables are the best solution for the active spaces in your office:

1. ARRANGE WITH CONFIDENCE.

Arrange tables are available in a variety of heights, worksurface shapes and sizes to support any space – from common areas and collaborative settings to private offices. Find a quiet spot to brainstorm in a small group. Grab a beverage away from the desk. Arrange tables provide the perfect change of scenery!

2. WHEREVER WORK GETS DONE.

Workers understand that getting away from the workstation throughout the day improves productivity and creativity. Arrange tables can support these much needed escapes in a variety of spaces that help people relax, collaborate, power up and stay connected. This flexible line of tables provides the connectivity people crave, and the variety of heights, shapes and sizes to support virtually any setting.

3. CUSTOMIZE YOUR SELECTION.

Arrange tables are available in seated, café or counter heights and a variety of tabletop shapes and sizes to support virtually any need. Choose from lighter-weight Aluminum X-bases and T-leg bases or add an optional Disc Shroud base for a crisp, clean look. Stay connected when you route technology through the base directly to the tabletop to use with optional USB or power grommets.

Whether this was your first year attending NeoCon East or your tenth, one thing that set this year apart from the rest was the new destination – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With a brand new location, attendees were especially enthusiastic about this year’s show, and I may have been on the top of that list as this was my first time attending. As the HON Resource Center Business Manager in Washington, DC, I was excited to have the opportunity to help plan this event. Our team transformed our 800 square foot space into a story; a tangible example of how HON is inspired by practicality in the workplace. We showcased everything from our top-selling legacy products to a brand new seating line and sneak peeks of upcoming launches, allowing our visitors to see, touch and experience the HON story firsthand in a variety of ways:

Inspired Practicality

In an effort to continuously improve our product offering, we work hard to listen to our customers and create purposeful solutions to meet their specific workplace needs. Wherever you are and wherever you’re going, our products are designed to adapt and evolve with your business. Our booth was inspired by this idea, highlighting our complete solutions from reception areas to collaborative spaces to the private office.

New Products

At this year’s show, we were especially excited to introduce Solve®, our new line of seating that launched in October. Our Solve display highlighted three back options – illra®-stretch Mesh Back, Upholstered ReActiv™ Back, and ReActiv™ Back. ReActiv is a new back option unique to Solve that will be available early 2016. It is a hexagonal design that flexes independently to deliver support. Guests in our space also had the chance to preview our new Contain® Pedestals and Standing Height Voi® legs and storage, all available for order in January 2016.

Color

Our guests also loved all of HON’s new fun fabric options. We’ve added over 900 this year alone! From bright solids to exciting patterns, HON has the perfect color for everyone.

HON Swag

Everyone who visited the HON booth could go home with a HON luggage tag and a HON bag. These were definitely a hit with our guests who traveled from all around the country to attend the event. The fact that they were all gone by day 1 of the show says it all!

Building Relationships

We really enjoy hearing about our guests’ experiences with HON, and events like NeoCon East give us a chance to interact with some of our most valued customers and partners. And what better way to capture the fun than with a photo! We encouraged our guests to snap a selfie with our 3D #HONSpotted prop in front of their favorite HON products and layouts.

If you stopped by our booth and took a picture, be sure to look for @honcompany on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find your #HONSpotted photo. If you were unable to attend, don’t worry! Browse our Flickr album and get a glimpse of the excitement at NeoCon East.

We always want you to be part of the conversation. If you are ever at one of our events or showrooms, see a HON truck on the road, want to celebrate a successful installation project, or just find yourself sitting on your favorite HON chair, take a picture and tag us with #HONSpotted so we can be a part of it with you!

In today’s office furniture industry, the trend is leaning toward more open and collaborative workspaces.  Even though the need for these types of spaces is growing, we still see a need for private workspaces as well.  Whether they be private offices or touchdown areas such as conference rooms, individuals need a place to go with minimal distractions and privacy.

Here at HON we offer several solutions for each type of workspace:

Shown first is a very open and collaborative work area.  This work environment allows members to easily work together and bounce ideas off each other.

Here is another open space example that offers a bit more privacy without sacrificing that sense of team and collaboration.

space 2

Here is an example of a private room that may be used when a member needs to make a personal or private phone call at HON HQ.

space 3

This space offers a private environment for those who may be working with more sensitive information on a daily basis.  The higher panels offer more privacy while still keeping the member in the open environment with their peers.

What are some of your tips for creating privacy in an open office environment?

Lately it seems as though we have all been living out of boxes here at HON Headquarters.  But have no fear, it’s for good reason!  A good portion of our beautifully designed building is being transitioned over to new furniture.  My workstation is being switched from Initiate® to Voi® and Abound® as we speak!

The first area to transition was our first floor, which is where our Solutions Account Group is located.  Before, this area was full of Abound workstations.  These have been changed to Voi in some areas and a combination of Voi and Abound in others.  Throughout the first floor you will see Voi used in several different applications, highlighting its versatility.

First we begin with Voi benching.  This is a very open and collaborative environment without any overheads, but it still offers plenty of storage with the credenzas down on the floor.

Next we have a combination of Voi and Abound.  This gives a more private feel but is still very open.

The third area we have is a more private Voi solution but still very functional in an open office environment.  Adding in the overhead units gives more separation between the workstations as well as more storage capacity.

The last area we have is a full integration between Voi and Abound.  We have taller Abound panels with Voi overheads, as well as Voi worksurfaces and credenzas.  This allows for a much more private workstation.

As you can see there are many different ways you can incorporate Voi in to any office environment.  From what I’ve heard everyone is really enjoying their new spaces here at The HON Company!
