Office space has fundamentally changed and continues to keep changing. Where there was once a clear distinction between work areas, meeting rooms, private offices and boardrooms, the lines are now blurred. Our behaviour has changed too. Today’s working culture is about fostering the sharing of information and championing new ideas – so people need to find new spaces to engage in new activities. Which means reshaping the workplace to dynamically support the way we work today.
The Herman Miller Kivo range transforms the workplace into a flexible canvas on which to expand or adapt. The combination of a lightweight steel skeleton and simple magnetic tiles allows the system to be moved and reconfigured with ease. As required, different areas can be designed and redesigned over and over again. The Herman Miller Kivo range is made to simply move and adapt when floor plans change. It’s an approach that is driven by the evolving workplace.
The Herman Miller Kivo range has the ability to create different spaces across the office floor. Each new area is functional and appropriate to any intended task – the lightweight free-standing system can simply delineate an area or repurpose it for something completely new. It’s left to the designer to be as creative as they wish, suggesting areas that have many possible functions – one system with multiple variations. Integral to this creativity is Kivo’s shape – the equilateral triangle – chosen for its strength, versatility and visual simplicity.
