You don’t need me to tell you this, but COVID-19 has changed work. And up to 68% of CEOs are planning to downsize their offices as real estate prices rise and Zoom collaboration has gone mainstream.

But what does that mean for the office layout?

The American furniture brand Herman Miller has a working theory, built into a new furniture collection called OE1. The big idea? Employees will need to have more autonomy at shaping their own workplace. And so the company has created a clever “un-system” of furniture that’s meant to be moved easily on demand—pushed into groups or pulled off for solo work—no approval from your office manager or IT department required.

See the beautiful new collection here.
