Haworth presents enhancements to its LTB lounge furniture range at Orgatec 2012. LTB mixes home comfort with office furnishings and addresses emerging work styles, which stem from increased worker mobility, collaboration, and impromptu meetings.
Enhancements to the LTB furniture range include additional choice of seat depths, reversible symmetrical armrests and shared armrests, an optional comfort upholstery, small round tables, bookcases with integrated screens, and a light, easy-to-use vertical dimension for partitioning. Additionally, small mobile stools on castors and a new Solo chair will complement the range. The Solo chair aims to reduce visual and audible distractions, making it the ideal spot for a quick phone call or a quiet break.
The office is no longer the sole location to welcome customers and meet with colleagues. In becoming more mobile, employees have to find new places to work, engage guests, and collaborate with groups. As new working habits are developed, organisations must adapt by reconsidering the use of public areas and the relative distribution of working environments. LTB naturally blends into, and extends, areas that historically were not often used as a workspace, such as: airport lounges, campus common rooms, hotel lobbies or company hallways.
Dedicated to collaborative spaces, LTB debuted at Orgatec 2010. Its versatility is evident in the wide scope of applications it can create including reflective, dynamic or interactive collaboration. LTB echoes the name of the designers Le Téo & Blet while also conjuring up associations with the people who are at the very heart of the work performance: Living, Thinking, Being together at work.
