Designed by Webb Associates, Obeya is a series of modular free-standing sub-architectural structures.
The benefits of increased communication and collaboration have established open-plan as the modern workplace landscape. When well implemented, productivity increases and employee satisfaction improves.
However, rising real estate costs and a necessity for flexibility have driven many to unsuccessfully adopt high-density layouts, creating uncomfortable and stressful conditions.
The structures have been developed to shape and define the open-plan office, whilst also addressing its key issues of acoustic and visual privacy.
A simple knockdown modular system, Obeya can be moved or altered as required to create spaces for different activities and settings.
