Unscripted is anything but unplanned. It is the culmination of years of research—by Knoll and Rockwell, independently and together—about the way work is truly done today.
Work increasingly takes places elsewhere. At a coffee shop or lunch counter, walking down the street, sitting on a park bench or perched on a bar stool and, overall, the urge to demarcate or defend individual territory is giving way to a desire for community. Whether alone or with colleagues, planned or the result of happenstance, people are often productive at unexpected moments and in unforeseen settings.
Blurring the boundary between work and play in the office doesn’t diminish the amount of work being done. Instead, it injects a new vitality, creating holistic, open-to-interpretation workplaces that can enhance ingenuity and productivity.
Unscripted takes the notion of planning for spontaneity from an inherent contradiction to a tangible reality: with fairly little effort, furniture can be adapted or reconfigured around you at any given moment and it can evolve over time.
