over the course of more than 70 years, american office furniture manufacturer haworth has developed a unique understanding of how our surroundings help humans thrive in the workplace

 

 

the impact of environment on behaviour

what kind of impact do our surroundings have on our behavior, and additionally, how do we react in return? these questions lie at the heart of environmental psychology, a research field that studies the transactions between individuals and their socio-physical environments and attempts to identify how we can anticipate a future with healthier and more sustainable environments.

 

 

at haworth, one of the world’s largest office furniture manufacturers, these types of studies are consistently conducted and given serious thought, in the quest to design spaces that have a positive impact on the quality of our work and life. the researchers in the ideation team – an internal think tank consisting of workplace scientists, designers, ergonomists and analysts – inform the R&D teams who design functional and aesthetic furnishing solutions that meet people’s needs for well-being, but also performance and productivity.

designing ergonomic and appealing furniture as well as envisioning and designing the space they go into, is haworth’s forte

 

 

rethinking workplace environments

good design is already widely acknowledged as having a beneficial effect on our comfort and mood. yet how do we conscientiously incorporate beauty into an overall vision of improving our ecological and social impact? according to haworth, one way is through innovative collaborations with other companies, institutes and creative minds who can share a deeper understanding of how design thinking can facilitate sustainable solutions that are both alluring as well as smart.

 

 

take ‘oceanic’ for example, a newly developed fabric made entirely from post-consumer recycled plastic. by joining forces with the seaqual initiative, a community fighting against oceanic pollution, and textile house camira, the company can propose a highly versatile and refined material in its fabric’s portfolio.

instead of floating in the ocean and polluting the environment, plastic has been recycled into the polyester fabric oceanic. the color palette consists of fresh and contemporary tones, ideal for present-day interiors

 

 

rethinking and upgrading our workplace environment is an interdisciplinary exercise which, for haworth, means merging human and economic interests with awareness, analysis and imagination. this is how the haworth collection – a family of brands that showcases the design thinking at the core of haworth – was born in 2011.
