It’s a typical busy day in the office when you suddenly have a big idea that you need to share with your team right away. You try to reserve a conference room, but they’re all booked for the day. Do you wait until tomorrow? Send it in an email? You look out into your boss’s empty office. He’s out for the day, and you wish you could simply book that room for your meeting since it’s not being utilized right now anyway. Well, now you can.
The Transcend collection is the newest member of our exclusive NBF Signature Series, and it’s designed to solve the issue of what to do when a business has a growing number of employees in a small space. This dual-purpose furniture collection serves as a private office when an employee is working alone, but can be transformed into a conference room grouping when it’s time to collaborate with co-workers. It’s a great tool for saving room and money, allowing companies to work with the space they have rather than having to move to a new location or take on new building construction when space constraints start to hinder productivity.
So how does it work? Transcend includes a table desk, a credenza with hutch and mobile pedestals that are all designed with dual-purpose use in mind. With a simple flick of the wrist and the addition of the right chairs, this furniture grouping can go from private workspace to collaborative meeting room in 1-2-3.
As a private office, Transcend is designed with a single user in mind. The table desk, which is available in two different sizes, provides a spacious work surface that’s ideal when working with a laptop computer. Just swivel your office chair around to the credenza for extra workspace, which is a great option when working with a laptop or desktop computer. The hutch area provides plenty of work space, and it includes an adjustable shelf on the inside that’s great for keeping reading materials and binders close by while you work. A built-in wardrobe cabinet on the outside of the hutch provides a handy area for keeping your coat, purse and other belongings tucked away. Add a mobile pedestal or two to the room to take your filing with you wherever you need it. Keep important documents underneath the table desk to keep files and supplies within arm’s reach while you work away. A lateral file is also included in this collection for additional filing needs.
As a conference room, Transcend can be quickly transformed to suit the needs of multiple users in a collaborative setting. We recommend keeping a few mobile nesting or stacking chairs in the room so that employees coming in for a meeting can grab them from the corner and use them to sit around the table desk, which can seat up to six people. Close the whiteboard doors on the hutch to conceal your personal belongings and to use the melamine surfaces to write down notes and make presentations with dry erase markers or a projector. Move that mobile pedestal out of the way with ease and keep it underneath the credenza so that it isn’t in anyone’s way during your meeting. Yes, it really is that easy!
Designated conference rooms are great for holding large and formal meetings, but when every private office in your business is equipped with the Transcend collection, those small, impromptu gatherings are better facilitated, ensuring that no thought is left undiscussed. Some of the biggest and best ideas are mentioned on the fly, and providing a private area to allow employees to collaborate without having to battle with reserving a conference room will promote an open line of communication and ensure that everyone has the tools they need to meet at the exact moment they need to.
