Herman Miller Asia Pacific has launched an all-new design system perfectly suited to the changing landscape of collaboration in the commercial environment – Sabha Collaborative Seating™.
28 November, 2017
Purposefully designed to facilitate knowledge sharing, break down silos and empower end-users through accessibility, variety and freedom of choice, the Sabha Collaborative Seating™ is the next step in modern workplace design.
Derived from the ancient Hindi language, ‘sabha’ translates as ‘gathering’, and this philosophy of community underpins the range’s collaborative design resolution.
By offering the modern workplace new options for collaborative work in a variety of environments, Sabha Collaborative Seating™ offers end-users the power to choose the method and environment best suited to their individual working habits, preferences, and comfort.
“By understanding the applications and configurations in today’s agile working environment, we realised that our end customer was after inclusiveness and flexibility,” says Jack Wang, Herman Miller Asia’s Head of Design and Development “To be successful, we needed to provide an economical and individual solution for addressing each application based from insights on the desking and panel systems we have launched in the past.”
Workplaces are no longer the bland, one-size-fits-all beasts of the 1980s and 90s, and Herman Miller knows this. In order to empower employers and businesses alike, there can’t be a generic solution – we all work in different manners and methods to one another, so providing all end-users with the appropriate tools means that the tools themselves need to be adaptable to different needs.
The soft form and integrated service elements of the Sabha Collaborative Seating™ collection offers users a truly flexible workplace solution – right down to the system’s accompanying freestanding elements. Power componentry, storage elements and integrated lighting co-operate to set the scene for creative interactions and intimate moments for focused collaboration.
The Sabha Collaborative Seating™ is available now through Herman Miller, and the design of the collection marries perfectly with Herman Miller Asia Pacific’s Living Office workstations and group settings, ensuring a comprehensive offering that can be updated and reconfigured as a workplace evolves.
