Creative Spaces Intro

Steelcase + Microsoft Creative Spaces

The Steelcase showroom at 2017 NeoCon featured Creative Spaces, a range of technology-enabled workspaces designed to encourage creative thinking at work that were created with their Microsoft partner. Introduced earlier this year, Creative Spaces are integrated into the Chicago showroom to show an even broader range of products and features to foster creative work. Steelcase has released research uncovering the drivers behind the shift toward creative work and the hurdles many organizations face as they work to build a creative culture. See the new Steelcase 360 on Creative Spaces for more information.
