If you want to build a positive work culture, one place to start is a bright, beautifully outfitted break room where people can gather for food and fun. That’s just what happened when we helped TDC create a social hub that, at lunchtime, is abuzz with laughter and conversation.

All furnishings in this break room, such as Eames Molded Plastic Chairs and Everywhere Tables, are lightweight and easy to reconfigure as they needs of the people using the space change.

In lieu of family photos at their desks, people can share photos of their kids and family pets at a community tack board in the heart of the break room.
