Living Office comes to life
Living Office is a high-performing workplace that delivers an elevated experience of work for people, and helps organizations achieve their strategic goals.
A Place for every purpose,
a purpose for every place
From improvisational creativity to standardized processes, work today is more varied than ever before—so shouldn’t our offices be more varied too? In a Living Office, people can choose from a range of spaces that better support their activities, strengthen their connection with colleagues, and help fulfill their specific purpose. These settings can be designed in ways that uniquely express the culture of an organization and progress their ambitions, making place a more valuable asset.
Living Office and other work and workplace insights
Delivering an elevated experience of work
The offices many people work in today were designed to support processes and technology from another era.
We see the potential for a new kind of office, one designed around the latest understanding of people, the work they are doing now, and the tools they need to succeed. This is a place where people will work not because they have to, but because they want to.
Through research, Herman Miller identified six fundamental needs that all people share—security, autonomy, belonging, achievement, status, and purpose. Living Office is designed to harness our innate motivations to fulfill these needs; it’s a place where every element feels right.
By recognizing that individuals and organizations have their own unique purpose, character, and activities, Living Office transforms the workplace into a powerful instrument that expresses an organization’s unique culture and progresses its unique ambitions.
