Ubi Work Tools
A collection of tools that enable people to organize, personalize, and work effectively
Any work area takes an active role in supporting what people do when they add items from the Ubi Work Tools portfolio. Individuals can arrange—and rearrange—the portfolio’s assortment of tools to suit their personal preferences and workstyles. Based on research into organizing principles, the designs give people a new and richer experience of working.
Designed for the person
We created Ubi Work Tools around an understanding of people. In support of each individual’s work essentials and lifestyle items and informed by the way people move and operate within their workspace, Ubi Work Tools provide a rich experience for the individual.
Suited for many styles
Depending on one’s owned items and the tasks being performed, the individual can assemble Ubi Work Tools accordingly. Whether a workspace is owned or used on a drop-in basis, the portfolio allows each individual to feel at home while in the office and receive support for work activities that further efficiency.
Zoned for optimal placement
With an understanding of how compact spaces can feel efficient and supportive, the designers at Observatory developed the Ubi Work Tools portfolio with optimal placement in mind. The portfolio allows the individual to maintain spatial efficiency and visual hierarchy within his or her work area while contributing to a sense of ownership.
Working with the design firm Observatory, we created Ubi Work Tools around an understanding of people. In support of each person’s work essentials and lifestyle items and informed by the way people move and operate within their workpoints, Ubi Work Tools provide a rich experience for the individual.
We started with people and studied their work activities. To an understanding of these activities, we added a consideration of the types of tools people use—from analog to digital, from mobile to stationary—and how they use them to further their work.
