Gone is the corner office. In its place comes unassigned seating: indeed, Herman Miller research shows that 82% of large organisations are adopting this kind of set-up, in a bid to improve job satisfaction, increase productivity, reinforce technological advancements and support organisations as they grow and contract.
There’s a fine art to getting it right, however; one that involves injecting warmth and character and creating spaces that people can personalise. And, above all, by encouraging movement.
As we transition from workplaces populated by fixed workstations towards tech-driven ad-hoc environments, the role of storage
is evolving. Now, lockers and cabinets are where we keep our smartphones and our laptops when we’re not using them; our boards for that big presentation; our running shoes for that shift from gym to office; and our high heels for that shift from workday to night.
Daily life is full of these transitions, and this is where Port comes in. Port acts as a transit point between home and office, between office and event, and between different zones and floors within the workplace, making travel to any destination – inside or outside the office – that much simpler.
Make It Personal
You’re also free to customise Port, using pin-boards, whiteboards and open shelving to create distinctive spaces that workers can connect to. And, with Port’s timber-based shelving and metal body, custom colours are easy to achieve.
More Than Storage
Port offers the flexibility of bespoke carpentry with the efficiency of ready-made lockers. Fit one locker or five within the same column, stack more lockers laterally, customise every measurement, or add open shelves to create a look that’s versatile enough to work anywhere. And, thanks to a universal body system, it’s easy to move between configurations as organisational needs change.
This highly adaptable system also comes with a distinctive backer element that frees Port from sitting flush against a wall, turning it into an island partition delineating different departments and activities within the workplace.
Port was built for the future from day one, primed to power up workplace technology as it develops, and readily upgradable from key-based to digital locker. And for today’s tech, Port is wired up and kitted out with USB ports to power existing digital devices.
There’s no need to add or remove components; power management is built into Port’s skirting, keeping frames, shelving and doors free to change whenever they need to.
With so much freedom, why limit Port to the office? Size and configure it for gyms, open it up as a retail showcase, dial up the style for a home... the possibilities are endless.
