As organisations adapt the hybrid strategy in the bid to best prepare for the post-pandemic future, we look at how a focus on inclusivity and equality of experience influences the role of the office – and how businesses can create adaptable spaces that foster collaboration, connection and concentration.
As we’re hopefully nearing the end of what might have been the most sedentary period of life for some, one thing has become abundantly clear to many. A comfortable, high-quality chair is a crucial part of any work set-up, whether in an office environment or a home setting.
The ultimate premise of design is to create better environments, utilities and tools that help people thrive – whoever they are and wherever they live, work and play. The ingrained diversity of humankind means that to design for a varied, global audience successfully, inclusivity, diversity, and equality have to drive not only the design process, but also manufacturing practices, operational procedures, and leadership style of any design brand aspiring to build a better experience for all.
The onset of the pandemic redefined the role of the office space and accelerated the dynamic transformation Australian workplaces had been going through. We sit down with Kirsten Brown, National Insights Manager for Australia and New Zealand at Herman Miller, to talk about why the office of tomorrow will have to work harder to prove effective and why designing a space with fundamental human needs in mind is the best way to future-proof it.
Design that inspires and solves problems. This is the philosophy of Design Within Reach – and thanks to Herman Miller, the exceptionally crafted collections of this San Francisco founded design giant are now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Sometimes the most highly evolved designs are incomplete. When conceptualising the new Suncorp headquarters in Sydney, the interiors team at Geyer worked to the idea of ‘designing to 80%’. The result is a radical take on the oft-used idea of workplace flexibility. While the building caters to the needs of its residents in the present, it comprehensively avoids dictating what these needs will be in the future.
