Meet Me in the Middle
Rethinking and recreating office furniture for Generation Y. Lead by the desire to help young working professionals feel more relaxed and at home while working, Meet Me In The Middle provides middle ground by connecting the quality of comfort and productivity in the working space. Soft, foam-filled pillows hug and adapt to the user, while encouraging various postures. Wide seating base and adjustable table acts as a catch-all surface for miscellaneous work or personal items such as phone, iPad, laptop, bag, and notebooks.
