CATIFA 46

"One of the great things about this chair is how scalable it is with so many material and base choices - I especially love the bi-color poly shell! Also, not many chair families do both indoor and outdoor models like the Catifa 46 does. It really helps when we need a consistent aesthetic."

AAVA

"The simplicity and versatility of this chair makes it unstoppable. I love how the tablet arm version brings warmth and comfort to classroom settings, while the upholstered wood base version is perfect for "resimmercial" hospitality & dining areas. Basically, I just want eight of these to come home with me to go around my dining room table!

CATIFA 53

"It's the perfect chair to use in multiple ways throughout a space: the 5-star swivel base in a conference room, the wood base as a guest chair in a private office, the 4-leg or sled bases as stackers in a cafe - there's even 2, 3, and 4-seat bench options for a waiting room or airport!"

DOES YOUR COMPANY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO INNOVATE?

DOES YOUR COMPANY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO INNOVATE?


A few years ago, IBM conducted a survey of 1,709 chief executive officers in 64 countries about which looming business challenges keep them up at night. Unsurprisingly in today's fast-paced global economy, a whopping 94% of the CEOs listed continual innovation as their most critical pressure.

We all know innovation is the process of making a novel and useful idea into a reality, and that coming up with a slew of small ideas that lead to an innovative breakthrough is called the creative process. But how can you actively drive your employees towards creativity? Why do some companies seem to innovate effortlessly, while others lag behind? Where can we find more of that sweet, sweet secret sauce?

5 WORKPLACE DESIGN ELEMENTS FOR HAPPY EMPLOYEES

5 WORKPLACE DESIGN ELEMENTS FOR HAPPY EMPLOYEES

What makes people happy at work and how can workspace design foster happiness?

To answer these questions, Haworth conducted a global study asking over 2,000 office workers in eleven cities to rate the features of their work environment and aspects of their overall happiness, controlling for things like generational affiliation, job type, and tenure.

Guess what they found? It's not ping pong tables, free food, or even pay raises that make workers happy.

HAPPINESS: THE NEW WORLD METRIC

HAPPINESS: THE NEW WORLD METRIC

As the end of 2017 approaches, I find myself reflecting on the personal goals I set back in January. "Choose Happiness" topped the list. I've always believed choice was the key to this concept because I thought of happiness as exactly that: a subjective choice based on one's own personal outlook. Happiness was tied to one's own perspective - how you perceive the world, your life, and your challenges. It was personal, unmeasurable from the outside, biased, and circumstantial.

Until now.
