Catena Office Landscape

Creating flexible workspaces that cater to people and the way they work

Catena is a versatile partitioning system that can be configured and reconfigured with ease. Meaning ‘chain’ or ‘connected series’ in Italian, Catena was inspired by the need for a lightweight connective system that supports the agile workplace of the future.

Optimise Your Space

With global office rents set to rise significantly in the next few years, businesses are facing a new challenge: how can we fit the same activities in a smaller footprint? It’s Catena’s mission to solve this problem. At just 60mm compared to the usual 100mm, it’s ultra-thin, minimising its footprint and maximising usable space.

Infinite Possibilities

More than a divider, Catena’s skinny spine paves the way for even more flexibility. Unlike traditional skeleton systems, it’s not simply linear. It can be configured in myriad ways, and applied across the office for myriad tasks and to suit the full spectrum of user behaviour.

Workplace Freedom

Many of us are looking for the freedom to work how and when we want to. Catena supports this in the context of the office. As a mobile system that isn’t fixed to the floor, it delivers freedom to create distinctive spaces that suit the tasks at hand, without disrupting fire safety regulations, ceiling plans or lighting distribution.

Beyond Diversity

Designed to respond to user behaviour, Catena is armed with fittings that allow it to turn 90 or 120 degrees. What makes Catena truly unique is its ability to shift from rectangular and grid formations to triangular and honeycomb settings – with ease.

Design Story

Catena came to life in response to a real-life problem. A global tech company came to Herman Miller with a challenge: give us a product that’s primed for agility, that readily caters to future wire management needs, and that looks good, too.
