The modern workplace has been an ever-evolving enigma for quite a few years, but it changed even more rapidly after COVID. Industrial Design Studio Mike & Maaike and their Haven line of furniture is focused on rounded edges and flexible everything so everyone you work with can focus on what needs to get done. Whether you’re talking about meeting tables, benches, coffee tables, and a plethora of flexible setups designed for teamwork, “It’s about an inclusive setting,” says co-founder Mike Simonian. Each highly functional piece draws people in as naturally and casually as possible with chair-less designs, footrests, built-in lights, and the aforementioned rounded corners. While there are plenty of people that would consider the design run-of-the-mill, we consider it revolutionary because it encourages collaboration, discourse, and camaraderie in a way most furniture does not, which is especially important during the COVID era.
