To celebrate the launch of the new Essentials Series, we asked 6 architecture and design firms around the country to share snapshots of a day in the life of a LessThanFive Chair.
To highlight the durable versatility and creative freedom The LessThanFive Chair invites, we asked our competitors to showcase three different work modes, capturing images that represented each setting with their own creative spin:
6 firms – Eastlake Studio, FOX Architects, Gary Lee Partners, Gertler & Wente Architects, Highland Associates, and VVell Studio – participated in the competition and shared their photos on Instagram where we put them to a popular vote and let you decide your favorite!
Read on to learn about the different settings and see the winning images from each week.
Incorporating dedicated spaces for focus and rejuvenation, whether as “solo nooks” in the open plan or designated enclaves in larger offices, is a key consideration for the modern workplace. Whether sipping a cup of coffee in the morning or relaxing with your pet-friendly office’s favorite four-legged employee, LessThanFive supports a range of settings that support focus and rejuvenation.
It’s no secret that modern work is driven by collaboration, even across diverse organizations. A 5-generation workforce, and the shift away from traditional 9-5 hours have all changed the ways we think, plan, and innovate. LessThanFive gives offices the tools to collaborate on the fly and create spaces where employees can interact across a variety of work styles.
Companies that provide comfortable spaces and opportunities for employees to connect face to face promote rich relationships, support a sense of belonging and help people develop their interpersonal skills. Social settings entice people to pause and engage in conversations and foster the rich relationships and sense of belonging essential to workplace success.
Claiming the winning spot in the LessThanFive Essentials competition with the highest number of overall votes was Eastlake Studio. From puppies to pizza parties, Eastlake showed the versatility of the LessThanFive chair and how it can support any workplace setting.
