Steelcase Identifies Division, Density And Geometry As Key Elements in Office Reconfiguration
Steelcase has designed their Munich Learning and Innovation Center with screens around and between open plan workstations to create a division between workers facing each other. Density has been reduced by increasing distances between desks and pulling apart seating in collaborative spaces, in order to meet social distancing guidelines. Geometry has been altered by positioning workstations at 90 degree angles to each other.

Galaxy C5 Cargo Aircraft Transports Massive Military Equipment
