Disrupting the Traditional Waiting Room

The humble waiting area is now home to a multitude of activities ranging from social interaction, relaxation to work collabs. Read on to find out more about furniture that supports these evolving spaces.


With technological advancements and the rise of telecommuting, waiting areas in offices are evolving into informal and comfortable spots where employees can work independently, away from their desks and without losing mobility. Even the hotel lobby, which is usually reserved as the first touchpoint for a guest at a hotel, is assuming a brand-new avatar. By metamorphosing into a space that feels versatile enough for both business and leisure, lobbies much like office waiting areas are assuming the character of the ‘third space’.

In response to the changing nature of these waiting areas, the demand for flexible and adaptable furniture is also on the rise. These furniture pieces have the ability to create a communal workspace, accommodate a shared meeting area or just create a relaxing spot to grab a coffee in, ensuring the waiting area can be transformed effortlessly depending on the need at hand.
