A wide selection of Connection furniture was specified for agile working, including Rooms freestanding structures furnished with TV screens, and centro tables and benches dotted throughout to provide practical spaces to meet, collaborate and spread out work. Multiple spaces for informal meetings are defined by a variety of Dixi wing back chairs, Mae low and high back chairs, all upholstered in innocent-worthy colours, completed by Omni and Flow coffee tables.
‘Innocent are committed to sustainability in all aspects of their business. One of their key strap lines is, ‘Here at innocent, we want to leave things better than we find them.’ As the project developed, we spent significant time discussing sustainability and credentials of manufacturers and suppliers,’ says Tracey.
The area that was difficult to compromise on was task seating. In order to operate a successful agile environment, one of the key elements is, of course, the task chair – it must be a ‘one-size-fits-all’ and easy to adjust as people constantly move around the office sitting in different places. ‘Innocent had a whole building’s worth of high-quality chairs that were exceptionally difficult to adjust. After a lot of discussion, they embarked upon the exercise of selling them to other companies with the proceeds going towards the purchase of new chairs specifically designed for agile working areas,’ says Tracey.
