Open-plan, collaboration-based work environments drain introverts’ energy, hindering success and creativity. Susan Cain Quiet Spaces by Steelcase are five unique spaces designed based on a deep understanding of introverts and how they work best. Constructed with Steelcase VIA walls, the spaces eliminate acoustical disruptions and offer various degrees of opacity to limit visual distractions. Each private workspace offers carefully integrated architecture, furniture, technology, and surface materials that allow workers to be highly productive and relaxed.
