As the lounge space gets a higher profile in the office and on campus, it’s exciting to see the furniture groupings designers and their clients are coming up with. In this post, we’ll showcase a few of our favorite lounge settings, both big and small. Each design featured here fits a particular context and invites users to linger for conversation or creative collaboration.
1. The Booth Lounge
This café-style mini lounge features the 2-seat bench from the Lagunitas Lounge System in a booth configuration, paired with the Lagunitas Table. This setting draws on employees’ preference to work in the third place, areas such as cafes and coffee shops. The close proximity to natural light increases its attraction and appeal for both meetings and coffee breaks.
2. The Outdoor Lounge
EMU Terramare Seating, imported from Spain, is the star of this open-air lounge application promoting social connection at—but not in—the office. The roomy patio accommodates, from left, a pair of lounge chairs, a 3-seat lounge, a 2-seat lounge and a trio of EMU Terramare occasional tables.
3. The Living Room Lounge
You can give employees all the comforts of home—plus the longevity of contract-grade furniture—with a residential-style office lounge like this. The living room setting highlights our Millbrae Contract Lounge Seating in an L-shaped configuration, along with a pair of steel Ace Chairs from the Viccarbe Seating Collection, imported from Spain.
4. The Small Social Lounge
Positioned at a well-traveled office crossroads, this open lounge includes a mix of moveable benches and chairs. The Davos Chair and Davos Bench from the Davos Lounge Seating line encourage employees to stop and engage with one another between meetings.
5. The Large Collaborative Lounge
This expansive lounge provides defined spaces for both creative collaboration and social connection. Privacy screens create separation between a pair of lounge settings using SW_1 Lounge Seating, CG_1 Tables and the Lagunitas Lounge System. Teams can use this space for official meetings or quick one-on-ones.
6. The Rejuvenation Station
Sometimes what employees look for in a lounge is a place to retreat for a few minutes and catch their breath. Hosu Lounge provides a spot for people to get away mentally while remaining in community physically.
