Living Office

Living Office delivers a more natural and desirable experience of work for people and fuels greater outcomes for organizations.

Living Office is founded on the belief that when people thrive, the organizations they work for do, too. But the story doesn’t stop there. Workplaces should also reflect the things that make an organization unique—who it is, what it does, and what it hopes to achieve. Living Office considers the needs of both people and organizations, and offers insights for creating high-performing workplaces that fulfill both.

Through our partnership with Herman Miller, we offer a human-centered point of view on work and workplaces, a placemaking framework, services and support, and a portfolio of products. These four parts of Living Office help organizations create work environments that harness people's natural motivations and compel them to produce their best work.

Whether the goal is to attract and retain talented individuals, stimulate innovation, or improve any number of business outcomes, Living Office puts people and businesses in a place to succeed.

Through our partnership with Herman Miller, we are collaborating with the world's leading thinkers and designers to apply a greater understanding of people to create work environments that harness our natural motivations, and compel us to produce our best work. This approach is called Living Office.

To accommodate the many needs of people doing different work, Living Office proposes a shift from standardized workstations and generic meeting rooms to a diverse landscape of purposeful settings. Living Office gives individuals something that cannot be had anywhere else: a spiritual connection to work and colleagues; a platform for increased productivity and effectiveness; and a more naturally human experience of interaction and creation.
