Collaboration Furniture is key in the workplace; Herman Miller discussed how “Organisations today, rely on collaboration from teams for the innovation that fuels profitability, but struggle to provide work environments that help their people work and think together” in a recent solution essay.

This is what we have found with our clients, they understand the importance of collaboration but often their offices are not equipped with enough collaboration furniture to facilitate it. The key is to making the most out of the space you have available, a collaborative space does not necessarily have to be in a designated collaborative room. As long as you have collaboration furniture in your workplace, you will be providing your employees with a space to collaborate.

Here at TOP-TEC we have designed an entire suite of collaboration furniture that allows employees to come together in workspaces to collaborate and share information and ideas seamlessly. SYNERGY Collaborative tables are an integrated solution that facilitates collaboration through office furniture with its co-ordinated designed, combining ergonomic furniture design with innovative technologies.

Collaboration Furniture – The science of SYNERGY

The table shape has a major effect on collaboration and the productivity of meetings. With standard furniture, a rectangular table, there is a natural stand-off. If someone is sitting at the end of the table, then they are positioned to take control in a divisive way. Thus, preventing a collaborative environment.

The SYNERGY Collaborative table range offers distinct table shapes that can be configured to fit specific user requirements for various space sizes and types. The collaborative furniture shapes have been designed to allow for each contributor to naturally make eye-contact and engage with other contributors as discussion takes place, ensuring no one is left out.

SYNERGY tables feature a mast which integrates completely customisable connectivity options with an integrated screen mount that can mount screens of up to 80” in size. This integration allows the screen to be positioned perfectly for video conferencing and presenting requirements. The position of the screen allows all individuals to see the screen.

The SYNERGY tables have been installed in several collaborative meeting spaces for the likes of Sainsbury’s Head office, Mono Pumps, Kramer Electronics UK and in many Universities across the UK to facilitate active learning pedagogies.
