LEAN –  office furniture system

13&9 for Quinze & Milan in collaboration with Maine

LEAN is multifunctional furniture system that responds to the needs of a contemporary workday-life, stimulating both body and mind. With the aim to avoid long time seating while working, this modular furniture arrangement provides a dynamic exchange between sitting, standing and leaning to encourage movement and change posture as well as provide social interaction. By developing versatile ergonomic uses for taller elements, the system allows for comfortable standing or elevated seating. The designs for the front and back stations are ideal for leaning and lounging, and the furniture invites people to move out of the static seating routine during temporary working, relaxing, phoning, meeting and communicating. The combinable modules include storage possibilities and can be arranged linearly to serve as a room divider or as islands in a variety of sizes. The open workspace offers the most optimized usage and playful layout of the space. LEAN reflects harmony between work, individual well-being and group gathering, thus creating an unconventional and multifaceted usage for furniture in office landscapes.
