Exploration of The HON Workspace | Chicago

There’s much to be hopeful about when spring rolls around. Everything is fresh and new, with a promise of good things to come. This season has been no exception—with convenient product enhancements and stunning new paint and fabric optimizations, HON has had a lot to celebrate since the beginning of 2024!

But we’re anticipating even more: our unveiling of The HON Workspace | Chicago. From June 10-12, visitors can experience our clever and comprehensive new environment—designed to celebrate amenities-driven spaces and HON’s award-winning furniture solutions and tools that support them.

“Our workplaces have evolved,” said Ric Andersen, HON’s Vice President of Sales. “Employees are looking for more than just standard desks, chairs, and storage. They want solutions designed to foster flexibility, connection, convenience, and—of course—style. We designed The HON Workspace | Chicago to reflect the needs of agile businesses committed to fostering personal and professional well-being.”

The Inside Story

The HON Workspace | Chicago was carefully curated around 5 stories that support the needs of a diverse workforce. With an emphasis on personal and professional well-being and an exploration of evolving floorplates, these philosophies embrace an inclusive and innovative approach to how busy people collaborate, create, and connect.

Story 1: The Amenities Driven Workplace

How we meet goals, foster creativity, and encourage engagement isn’t one-size-fits-all—everyone has different needs and workstyles. An intuitively designed environment is crucial to keeping employees productive, focused, and—most importantly—happy. While individual workstations have their merits, busy people are moving away from the status quo: An organic change of scenery with intuitive soft seating (ideally with a view!) does wonders for productivity and focus.

At HON, we believe an amenities-rich workspace has four elements: Personalization, flexibility, convenience, and style. No matter what role you fill in an organization, having access to dynamic furniture solutions, vibrant color, inviting textures, and accommodating tools makes all the difference when it comes to job satisfaction.

Story 2: Expanding the Potential for Learning

Although the traditional classroom components remain—think desks, seating, and storage—how those environments and tools support a wide variety of needs is changing every day. From smart organization to comprehensive comfort to creative, colorful classroom configurations, ensuring educators and students have the support they need to be successful and happy requires inclusive vision and a think-outside-the-box approach.

Media centers, administrative spaces, classroom environments, and everything in between play a vital role in supporting the efforts of schools determined to make a difference. Enhancing those spaces with furniture solutions designed to foster connection, creativity, and imagination is how we’re championing this generation and beyond.

Story 3: Traditional, Transitional, & Progressive Work Systems

While a standard cubicle may have served its purpose years ago, today’s amenities-driven workspace is looking for more. More efficiency, more connection, more optimization—how personal and professional needs are met are heterogeneous. That’s why we’ve broken down three work system classifications we believe enhance the motivation, comfort, and vitality of any office and every employee: Traditional, Transitional, and Progressive. From dynamic benching solutions paired with flexible task seating to holistic, inclusive environments designed around intuitive soft seating and sleek surfaces, we’re exploring—and celebrating—the way people work and stay productive.
