As we circled back to the
opening of the space, we came to the mockup
area featuring long tables, conference space,
and a design library complete with samples
and 3-D-printed pieces.
“At this point, clients start envisioning what
they want to do, and they start modeling
ideas,” Lesizza said. “We’re here to help
throw ideas around, differentiate things, and
really make it personable.”
Isn’t there an old adage about business
being done best while breaking bread? I
could have that wrong, but if you ask me
(and the Haworth and Work Well teams), it’s
cooler with cookies and coffee.
In every corner and expanse of the
space, there were fun seating options like the
Windowseat and Capo. Several had high arms
or roof-like canopies,
and although those are
primarily included to
provide sound mitiga-
tion, I more appreciated
them for the snuggled,
“It’s still open
enough that you’re not in a cocoon,” Scotto said.
“But you can turn around and you’re closed off
enough to make a call or open your laptop. We
see these a lot in public or open spaces.”
Capellini's Wanders' Tulip also appeared in a hospitality setting because the designer appreciated that its
base can be mounted directly into the floor. “Then it looks like you’ve got rows of them literally blooming
right out of the ground,” said Scotto.
