“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress, working together is success.” – Henry Ford

HON may manufacture office furniture, but we sell something much more important: Productivity. What it means to be productive is always changing, and the path to get there is very fluid. Currently, the big buzz words around productivity are ‘collaboration’ and ‘interaction’. Younger generations are driving this change in the typical work day, and I don’t think they are going anywhere. The 9-to-5 gig will continue to be a more group-oriented experience. Workstations will become more dynamic. Private offices will lose their clout. Walls will come down, and teamwork will be at the heart of business. It is time to adjust to the new world and the solution is simple: Between™ Tables.

Henry Ford said it best, “Working together is success.” So, why not invest in tools that make that success possible? Between is a contemporary table line that is compatible with any space in the office. With three shapes and multiple heights, all available in our full line of HON laminates, there is nowhere this line won’t fit.

Between tables are all about taking all those nooks and extra spaces in your office and transforming them into places that drive productivity. Between is simple. Between is easy. Between is, for all intents and purposes, perfect for that space between. At a competitive price and with a design that makes reconfiguring a breeze, there isn’t much to not love about HON’s newest table line.

Between can be used in a breakroom, a back room, the server room, or even in the hallway. Between is a tool that will help you leverage every square inch of your space to create a productive environment, so that even the smallest of spaces can be the place of the next great innovation. So, whether you find yourself shooting the breeze over lunch, or planning the next billion-dollar acquisition, let Between tables propel you to the next level.

Welcome Solve, our newest addition to the HON winning lineup of seating.  Here are 3 reasons why Solve is a single solution for everywhere and everybody!

Day Long Comfort

People are becoming more and more mobile in today’s evolving office, moving from individual to collaborative work at a moment’s notice.  This new workplace trend requires a high performance seating solution that can intuitively adapt to each user’s body type and movement throughout a space. Solve was uniquely engineered with a responsive design, including a synchronized seat and back that move in harmony with the user to provide continuous and customized comfort. With this high level of ergonomic support, consider the search for a universal task seating solution complete.

Welcome and Reception:

Welcome and reception areas are the first spaces someone sees when they enter a building; especially, for the first time. That’s why it’s important to use furniture in these spaces that is inviting and leaves a positive impression. Try to incorporate soft seating that draws people in to the space. Don’t forget the impact that lighting can play in making a space inviting. It is also nice to consider some sort of service area to make people feel welcome.

Welcome and Reception

Common Spaces:

Common areas are similar to welcome and reception areas in that they should also be inviting. However, common areas should be designed to accommodate larger groups of people. As you can imagine, more people means more furniture needs and preferences. Consider a variety of seating and table options in common areas so individual work styles can be addressed. Vary the heights of tables and offer a blend of café and soft seating in the space and you’ll commonly find people in the common areas.

Common Area

Private Spaces:

Private areas are the place for heads down, focused work, so these individual spaces should be designed to maximize productivity. Be sure to include ample worksurface space and easy access to a variety of storage.  Extended surfaces and overhead storage give a person more room to spread out and work.. Private offices should also have task chairs that accommodate an all day sit to ensure the worker is comfortable.

Private Office

Collaborative Areas:

Collaborative areas should bring people together and offer a break from individual heads down work, while allowing people to be productive. Consider integrating collaborative areas alongside individual workstations. Try to include worksurfaces that can be used to lay out documents and soft seating. Also consider lightweight, easy-to-move furniture (i.e. cushions or seating and markerboards with casters) for a flexible, fun way for people to meet.

Collaborative Space

In which type of space do you work best and why?

Pantone has recently revealed the 2015 color of the year, and it is… Marsala (yes, just like the sauce)!

Not only does this color taste great, but it is taking over the red carpet! The rich, earthy, and classic tone of Marsala translates perfectly to a stunning red carpet dress, a sophisticated accent wall, or a timeless fabric choice for chairs, couches, or pillows. This color may be the Color of the Year 2015, but I don’t think this color will go out of style anytime soon.

HON, being so fashion-forward in work place solutions, offers great fabric choices in shades of Marsala as seen below. These fabrics are great choices to spice up your tired-looking cubicles with shades and pops of this trendy color! Mix with rich woods or polished grays for a refreshingly modern office space.
