Classic Media-hub leaner (standing height)

Business benefits

  • Engaging with an audience requires dialogue – and that does not happen easily in large group settings
  • So, today, organisations place less emphasis on formal ‘presentations’ and more dynamic and engaged discussions
  • With more emphasis on smaller group collaborations often a team will gather around a screen to share info
  • It enables them to share content and (more importantly) to add the team’s insights in real time so everyone is on the same page
  • The shared perspective that emerges in real time can shift the dynamic of the meeting, resulting in shorter meetings yet higher engagement
  • And because everyone can see the same screen, there is less need to print handouts to share information (so you can save a forest)
  • In an open plan office, noise pollution can drain the energies of colleagues who need to concentrate, leading to protocols to avoid discussions at the desk
  • Instead, team members need to find a work-space they can use for impromptu catch-ups or planned meetings – and often they need that to happen around a shared-screen
  • Increasing the percentage of standing-height furniture in the workspace can prompt team members to reduce their sitting time at work, helping everyone to achieve a healthier state of wellness

User benefits

  • The Shape-Classic Media-hub system fosters small team interactions in the workspace using a shared-screen to promote shared insights
  • The Shape-Classic media-hub leaner includes a table at standing height plus an integrated media-wall (for your monitor)
  • It is ideal for interactive sessions that involve collaborative focus work as well as team discussions, especially stand-up meetings and huddles
  • With the addition of this purposeful workspace-furniture, individuals can take few steps away from the desk to continue their discussions
  • It provides a spacial (rather than acoustic-absorbing) solution to the problem of noise pollution
  • The ability to position the media-hub in the centre of the room or against a wall can liberate the workspace designer
  • You can use the media-wall component of the hub to help define a space in the middle of the room
  • Whether you position the hub near a floor or wall outlet, you will appreciate the extensive cable-management system in both the media-wall and table-top components
  • Use the inset power and data box and integrated cable management system to manage the cables and leads that come with the screen and participants’ devices
  • Add your monitor using the screen fixing-system that is an integral part of the hub design
  • Access the cables for the monitor through any of the hinged doors (at rear and sides) of the media wall
  • See your team members highly-engaged in generating, debating or sharing content – not rearranging furniture or tripping over cables
  • Create an inspiring space that signals the contemporary stance of your team and the importance you place on their shared insights
