Nook can be sat-inside, sat ‘at’ by pulling up an additional chair or stool, or stood at and leaned on from the rear. Such flexibility invites a variety of uses and creates an enthusiasm to explore and a satisfaction to participate in.
A nook integrates and works with the space around it. Find them in corridors as a way to make that otherwise lost space functional. Place them facing a wall to create secluded environments for phone calls, contemplation or focused work.
Placing a nook at the end of a row of desks offers a natural location when two people wish to sit and share, meet, discuss and connect. Opening the shutters from this set-up enables short-term communication to those around and invites passers-by to ‘drop-in’ and get involved.
