What is a breakout space? A breakout space is one where people break away from their usual activities. In a workplace environment, it can be a place for employees or visitors to relax, hold informal meetings or working groups and even eat their lunch. It doesn’t have one specific purpose, but is a flexible space for collaborating and engaging.
So what’s the best furniture for a breakout space or collaborative work space? Furniture that is inviting is key. It has to be visually enticing and also comfortable so that people can relax and embrace the creative process, or feel comfortable while they are in a waiting area. There should be some visual distinction from other areas, perhaps less formal with more upholstered items – both for comfort and acoustic considerations.
