Vitra’s Workbay Office by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec


By Stephen Searer, Office Snapshots

One of the things I’ve been thinking a lot about recently is the idea of an office that is customizable in such a way that every person would have the work setting necessary for the work they are trying to accomplish. Vitra’s new product, the Workbay Office designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec looks like it will be useful in moving toward customizability.

“Team offices, conference rooms, work and meeting areas, cloakrooms, small pantries and public lounges all present working situations that can be created using few furniture elements and easily changed when needed. The variation of organic floor plans, room sizes and wall heights help create a new, emotional office landscape, which breaks with the usual category of open-plan and cubicle offices.

Users use the topography of the Workbay Office as a source of orientation – as they would a natural landscape – and instinctively select the work situation (open space, place of retreat or community area) that is the most suitable for the task at hand. Erwan Bouroullec continues: “We are all for a mix of offers and experiences that are available to office workers during the course of their workday.””

The Workbay Office is meant to be flexible enough to move around but durable enough to last through the changing seasons of office design concepts.

“One should not forget that office environments are changing and that the furniture will outlast many office concepts. This means it has to take part in the evolution, not stand in its way”, explains Erwan Bouroullec”

Vitra’s new Workbay Office was showed at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan
