Creating flexible workspaces that cater to people and the way they work

Catena is a versatile partitioning system that can be configured and reconfigured with ease. Meaning ‘chain’ or ‘connected series’ in Italian, Catena was inspired by the need for a lightweight connective system that supports the agile workplace of the future.

Optimise Your Space

With global office rents set to rise significantly in the next few years, businesses are facing a new challenge: how can we fit the same activities in a smaller footprint?
It’s Catena’s mission to solve this problem. At just 60mm compared to the usual 100mm, it’s ultra-thin, minimising its footprint and maximising usable space.

Infinite Possibilities

More than a divider, Catena’s skinny spine paves the way for even more flexibility.
Unlike traditional skeleton systems, it’s not simply linear. It can be configured in myriad ways, and applied across the office for myriad tasks and to suit the full spectrum of user behaviour.


Workplace Freedom

Many of us are looking for the freedom to work how and when we want to.
Catena supports this in the context of the office. As a mobile system that isn’t fixed to the floor, it delivers freedom to create distinctive spaces that suit the tasks at hand, without disrupting fire safety regulations, ceiling plans or lighting distribution.

Beyond Diversity

Designed to respond to user behaviour, Catena is armed with fittings that allow it to turn 90 or 120 degrees.
What makes Catena truly unique is its ability to shift from rectangular and grid formations to triangular and honeycomb settings – with ease.


Privacy on demand

We should not assume that everyone wants privacy, in fact, people naturally need and crave conversation with others. Arras side blades provide flexible positioning of side screens for privacy on demand, delivering aesthetic ingenuity within a functional frame.

Infinite Possibilities

More than a divider, Catena’s skinny spine also paves the way for even more flexibility: unlike traditional skeleton systems, it’s not simply linear.
It can be configured in myriad ways, and applied across the office for myriad tasks and to suit the full spectrum of user behaviour

Beyond Diversity

User behaviour is what shapes working modes and the way we use spaces, and Catena has been designed to respond to this.
Armed with fittings that allow it to turn 90 or 120 degrees, Catena is unique in that it can shift from rectangular and grid formations to triangular and honeycomb settings – and with ease.


Optimise Your Space

Urbanisation is gaining pace: globally, Office rents are set to rise by 3% in 2020. The follow-on effect is that businesses will have to t the same activities in a smaller footprint..
It’s Catena’s mission to solve this problem. At just 60mm — versus the usual 100mm – it’s ultra-thin, keeping its footprint to a minimum, so organisations can put their spaces to work as effectively as possible.

Digitising The Office

Catena came to life in response to a real-life problem. A global tech company came to Herman Miller with a challenge: create a product that’s primed for future wire management needs as the company grows and changes, and that looks the part, too. While we met the client’s needs, we knew we could improve upon our initial solution. And so, after a year of research and refinement, Catena was born, it has a wire management system that has exceptional capacity, allowing for multiple distribution channels, both horizontally and vertically, with access points anywhere and everywhere they’re needed. Plus it’s all concealed behind clean cladding, keeping usable workspace free of clutter and pesky wires. This clever backbone also acts as a freestanding power station. Place sockets wherever necessary, then plug in and power up.
