moderHow To Redefine Your Workspace Using Breakout & Cafe Furniture
Breakout furniture is the ultimate in flexible seating. Endlessly adaptable, areas sensibly designed around items of breakout furniture are not only comfortable, but practical, productive and multifunctional. Traditionally located in spaces of recreation, the use of modern café furniture in more formal environments is becoming increasingly widespread. Recognising the benefits of a comfortable soft seating area, office designers are making the introduction of café style seating common place. Employees are given room to disengage from glaring screens, constant emails and forever chirping phones; the space allowing them to engage with colleagues and clients in an altogether different setting. The result is a more productive, creative and focussed workforce.
And breakout areas are not the preserve of those with ample and plentiful space, in fact often the most effective use of this furniture is in areas where space is at a premium. Fortunately, the options for utilising breakout furniture and café seating within your workplace are vast. Here, we run down the 5 different categories of contemporary cafe furniture on offer at 360 Office Interiors, and select standout items from each category.
Traditionally the seat of choice for late night drinkers, the bar stool offers an informal settling option for your workplace. A casual place to sit, and easily moveable, the bar stool provides seating for individuals searching for time to think, or allows opportunities for colleagues to get together and brainstorm ideas during impromptu meetings. When paired with a complementary table, a bar stool can provide the perfect alternative to a traditional desk for those looking to break free from the constraints of the typical office environment.

These tall tables will fit in even the tiniest of spaces, transforming unused areas into productive and dynamic hubs of activity. If space is very limited, then chairs are not necessary around the counter. Instead the table top offers a place to gather, to rest laptop computers, place cups of coffee, or scribble quick notes and diagrams. If space allows then the Bar Table can be matched with a Bar Stool, allowing colleagues and employees an area to work or rest for longer periods of time.
The Elite Bar Table can be specified with a circular or round counter top and made from either wooden or coloured materials to perfectly blend in with existing surroundings.
