Activity Based Furniture


Activity based working (ABW) is a strategy that strays from the common office layout (cubicles, private offices and conference rooms) and instead creates a space where employees can use multiple areas depending on the task at hand. In these sorts of workplaces, focus rooms (for more informal meetings), huddle rooms (for creative sessions) and high-impact lounge areas (for impromptu collaboration) are the norm.

How do I choose activity based furniture?

If you need help choosing the best activity based workplace furniture for your strategy, you’ve come to the right place.

desks & chairs

You need to ensure that all of the desks and chairs in your workplace are robust, as they will be well used. The last thing you want is something to collapse after only a few short months of use. When selecting desks, it’s also a good idea to ensure that there’s ample room to spread out papers.


Think about the type of furniture that is required in order to encourage people to sit down and work together. Meeting tables with a whiteboard and some comfy armchairs, for example, are great for small groups that want to get together but don’t want the formality of a conference room.

Seating that
creates privacy

Although most employees are open to activity based working, they don’t want to sacrifice their privacy. Sometimes, phone calls and conversations need to be conducted without the risk of listening ears. Soft seating can be a great solution, as sofas with high backs create a private bubble.
