The private office, a corporate standard in the realm of office planning, is evolving into a nimble space to support the changes in today's technology-rich, collaboration-focused workplace.

Building on the pioneering work of Florence Knoll, we provide insights and products that elevate the modern private office beyond a symbol of prestige and into to a flexible, high-performing work environment.

Today's private offices support not only individuals, but also focused collaboration. With smaller footprints, private offices have a increased need for efficiency and performance. And ubiquitous technology demands connected, adaptable spaces. Through combining these functional needs with innovative aesthetic forms, our private office portfolio delivers the refined, performing spaces that both support and inspire work.

Classic Private Office

Distinguished spaces with a definitive expression of place.

Combine workwalls, worksurfaces and storage with rich materials and discrete technology management to deliver beautiful, productive private office environments.

Efficient Private Office

An environment as streamlined as it is considered.

Connect smart architectural and design qualities with furniture that is logical and affordable. Marked by the interplay of table desk, additional worksurfaces, storage, and shelving, the efficient office gets to the essence of what matters.

Shared Private Office

A nimble space designed to support small teams.

Today, private offices are not only for individuals. The shared private office is ideal for groups needing to balance focused, shared and team work throughout the day.
