Knoll, Inc. introduced furniture solutions at NeoCon 2012 for a range of individual and group work that recognizes the increasingly social, mobile and collaborative fashion of today’s workplace.

“The office planning paradigm that most of us are familiar with was never intended to support the complexity or even the unpredictability of new work patterns,” said Benjamin Pardo, Knoll design director.

The Knoll NeoCon 2012 showroom was designed to showcase the role of activity spaces in the workplace in relation to primary workspaces that support:

  • focus (concentrative work by one person)
  • shared (among two or three people) and
  • team work (among four to six or more people)


Knoll has determined that activity spaces generally fall into one of five types:

  • REFUGE – for one to two people;
  • ENCLAVE – for 3-4 people
  • TEAM MEETING – for four to eight people
  • ASSEMBLY SPACES – for larger groups
  • COMMUNITY SPACES – for larger groups
