Humans are made for community. Relationships — and good ideas — blossom when we gather together around a table. This is true in our personal lives, and it’s just as real in the workplace. Café culture now permeates company breakrooms and dining areas, making each space a vibrant oasis for engagement.
Social cafés within the office have become increasingly vital, functioning as valued hubs for social connection and trust-building. A spot to grab a hot beverage, a place for a small-group discussion over lunch and an informal meeting space for larger groups.
Here we highlight three of our favorite communal café settings — work settings infused with warmth and vitality.
Lined up along a wall of windows, these bright one-on-one settings serve as ideal in-between spaces for workers who need a place to regroup between meetings — or for colleagues looking for a quick chat over coffee. The string of stations pictured here feature the bar-height Enea Lottus Post Stool with upholstered seat insert and the bar-height Enea Lottus Table.
Small groups of colleagues gathering over a casual lunch at the office are likely to develop the empathy, trust and openness that are essential to getting things done. The multipurpose corporate café pictured here showcases elegant selections from the Viccarbe Imports Collection: the stackable Quadra Chair, designed by Mario Ferrarini, the four-seater Torii bench and the slender Eli table.
When a conference room is too small and auditorium-style seating feels too formal, what better place to convene a larger group than versatile the work café? (Outside of lunch hours, of course.) Pictured here are a pair of welcoming Potrero415 Tables surrounded by a creative collection of guest chairs: the carbon fiber LessThanFive Chair, the stackable Montara650 Chair and the fully upholstered Wrapp Chair.
