Part 4: Herman Miller WHY

This is my fourth post sharing with you the Herman Miller WHY series.

Work Life

This segment of the Herman Miller WHY series focuses on collaboration. For a year, the company's Insight and Exploration team observed various workplaces and came up with a universal "anatomy of collaboration." Even though how workers collaborate appeared to vary widely, the team identified 10 activities that go on in all offices every day.

Senior Researcher Shilpi Kumar notes that, “outlining these collaborative work behaviors will empower designers and decision makers with a greater understanding for how people really work, and will enable more informed choices in regards to office spaces.”

  2. Thank you so much Dana, for this little series. I was very inspired by the ads you´ve shown in one of your posts but this ones are so pretty to look at. How lovely it must be to sit in Eames or chairs and create, controvers etc. and be paid for it ;-) The style of the pics made me smile. Greetings and many thanks for all your comments on my blog. It is always a pleasure to read them!
