Today we understand that collaboration is central to innovation and is a key catalyst for business growth. Solving problems and implementing solutions require people and teams to build on each other’s ideas and iterate quickly whether in the same location or distributed nationally or globally. To top that, collaborative work is more dependent on technology than ever. As workspaces shrink and private offices are reduced or eliminated, a real need for smart, functional and flexible collaborative office furniture emerges, solutions that can mesh both analog and digital technology.
