Designers Sam Hecht and Kim Colin of UK-based Industrial Facility have created ‘Locale Office’, an intelligent office furniture system for Herman Miller. Locale helps organizations better utilize and manage open offices with a system that enables transitions between work done together and alone, and in seated or standing postures.

During the design process for Locale, Hecht and Colin drew inspiration from their own office — a highly efficient space that accommodates different work styles and behaves like an energetic international neighbourhood. “By removing visual and physical obstacles and condensing the architectural scale of an open plan office into a tightly knit neighbourhood, Locale helps people stay better connected to their work and each other.” says Herman Miller.

“We often talk about how social networks behave given current technology, where close relationships are not based on physical proximity, but instead on similarity of purpose or interest. You might make an alliance in a social network with someone who is very far away but very close to you in other ways. They are great spatial condensers in this respect. Locale is a physical manifestation of this principle, where the most relevant participants are kept close and communication is fast and frequent.” says designer Kim Colin.
