For people: Inclusive
The simple seating vocabulary accommodates a broad range of personal needs without separating or stigmatizing users.

Open Forum 2.0 offers similar functionality to Open Forum 1.0, but with a more casual and adaptable character. Where the latter is expressed through a diverse variety of furnishings and material finishes, the former has a more streamlined vocabulary, keeping the focus on people and their work. As such, this space encourages a hands-on approach for participants.
