Heard about the new trend in office design? You probably didn’t think that it involves stadium seating, did you?
That’s exactly what is happening at a handful of tech companies, starting about five years ago in Silicon Valley. An act of defiance? Maybe. School bleachers were originally considered a sort of “counter corporate” snub to traditional cubicle layouts and “stiff boardrooms.” The use of physical space in high tech work campuses has also become a recruitment tool and it seems the nostalgic aspect of bleacher seating has a hook.
As the trend builds steam, so have some imaginative variations in stadium seating. The Malwarebytes office had the foresight to open a “secret” speakeasy-like cantina in stylish fashion BENEATH their stadium seating. California’s Workday HQ got an interesting wrinkle in their design by Form4 Architecture: a huge dry erase coloring book with fish on the wall, encouraging passersby to stop and draw.
There’s more to this tiered shape in the office than just seating. Beyond Silicon Valley, new cubicle designs are also shaking up traditional office floor layouts. And even older style partitions are getting a makeover with Tiered Cubicle Name Plate Holders.
Multi-Tier Name Plate Holders in Black and Silver border options are really gaining notice. These colorful new “People Spotters” come in 2, 3, 4, and 5 different slot variations that rather resemble stadium seating when the inserts are loaded. The colored borders catch the eye and Multi-Tier Cubicle Name Plate Holders are ideal for directional guidance and combination suite identification.
Also, if you are fortunate enough to have an in-office getaway like the Malwarebytes “secret speakeasy” – with or without stadium seating – you might want a Multi-Tier Name Plate Holder to point the way. Then announce your arrival with a brilliant Clear Acrylic Sign Holder!
