While I love connecting and collaborating, I am at my best in a small more intimate group or on my own thinking through information. I like that she is making us not have to apologize for the way we work best. Office spaces have gone from cubicle world to open floor plan, and it is exciting to see space designers acknowledging and designing for all kinds of personalities and all kinds of work dynamics.
More examples from Steelcase and Susan Cain here.
Here are my inspirations from Neocon:
1. Best New Seating: Lo by Keilhauer
2. Best Office Color: Pink by Herman Miller
(PS. I even saw Yves Béhar race on by, star designer sighting!)
3. Best Keynote Speaker: Todd Bracher
4. Best Color Trends: Green & Blue (think Easter)
5. Best"I want that" moment: Herman Miller and Haworth tie
Herman Miller portable pin boards
Haworth leather lounge chair organizer
