A corridor lined with window
seats and numerous huddle
areas unites the various
spaces (opposite, top left). A
C-suite office features a
Humanscale sit/stand desk
and chair (opposite, top right).
The galley kitchen, which is
stocked with fresh fruit and
healthful options, features a
living green wall, long
communal table, and
banquettes or breakout areas.
It serves as a hub for both the
showroom and office
(opposite, bottom left and

the design and prototyping
process in action (this page). 

By blurring the line between showroom and office space,
Humanscale's products and ergonomic solutions are showcased and
used in real time by their own team members. "This strategic space
planning allows the showroom to bleed seamlessly into the work
spaces and design studios, allowing employees and guests to move
freely throughout the entire floor," says Verderame, who created an
overall minimalist design for the space, following Humanscale's own
motto: "A good design achieves more with less." Humanscale allows
visitor to experience the actual office workspace, in contrast to other
companies, which often separate their workspace from visitor spaces.
Company transparency
Customer tours begin at the reception desk where they are registered,
greeted, and introduced to a wall exhibition of didactic "art boxes,"
which highlight the brand's commitment to functionality, ergonomics,
simplicity, material transparency, sustainability, and wellness. As guests
move through the space, they can peak into multiple conference
rooms as meetings are in progress and walk through the real-life office
space, where they can see how employees work-glass walls allow
views into the workspaces for Humanscale sales and marketing teams
as well as C-level executives-and how they use products-hot
desking, sit-stand desks, and connected conference rooms. (Across
from these offices are two Jabbrrbox booths that are often in use
for private calls or heads-down work.)
