‘Lexicon’ by Steelcase is a flexible system that addresses new needs in the workplace
October 12th, 2012
’Lexicon’ is a new workplace system by Steelcase that defines a new dimension in work-life balance. The flexible system makes it easy to create a variety of workplace applications for both individual and collaborative work. ’Lexicon’ offers a simple solution for every requirement, from benches to desks to panel configurations and tables – all using the same components and elements.
The innovative system is the product of extensive research by Steelcase into the changing workplace, which resulted in three major insights.
Firstly, people want privacy for focused task work, but visual contact for collaborative work. Thus, flexibility to change the work environment quickly is critical, and ’Lexicon’ is designed to balance private tasks and collaborative teamwork.
Secondly, people want to keep personal items close and convenient. ’Lexicon’ helps balance personal and public items in the workplace. The clip in bag holder, accessory rail and extensive cable management solutions for ’Lexicon’ are a response to this insight. ’Personality’ is a task chair by Steelcase that also works with ’Lexicon’ to address this need – a chair that hangs, hooks, and holds.
Thirdly, people like their personal workspace to feel good. As work and life merge, the ability to express individual character in the workplace is important. ’Lexicon’ personalisation and the individual ways people work.
The simple extended table format supports teamwork and casual meetings, while higher panels promote privacy for focussed task work. Conference settings are also simple to create with a minimal number of components.
’Lexicon’ supports work wherever it takes place. It is perfect for fixed address, hoteling, and hot-desk usage. And, it supports multi-tasking, multimedia, and integration of technology.
In a rapidly changing workplace, ’Lexicon’ by Steelcase is a flexible solution that addresses new needs.
