The last thing one wants when stuck in a “waiting situation”—whether airport, train station, or hospital—is to be lined in rigid rows like so many hapless cobs of corn, waiting turn to be picked, as it were. The Commons system of modular seating and tables by Carolina Business Furniture addresses that all too common disappointingly linear arrangement.

The Creative Curves of Commons Enliven Public Space
A “seating and tables system designed to support the common space,” Commons is comprised of angled and curved pieces that easily link together to form a wavy, serpentine path through whatever public space needs be traversed.
The advantages of such a system are manifest. The innovative profile of Commons increases aesthetic and textural interest, thereby elevating mood and making time spent in such public spaces more enjoyable. There’s also a productivity advantage, as the modular arms of Commons can be placed at any junction, thus facilitating impromptu work sessions. Optional data and power connections enhance productivity in this regard as well.
According to Mike Wagner, Senior V.P. of Sales and Marketing for OFS (Carolina’s parent company), “The common space has become more than just a waiting area. It is a social space in which we live, learn, work and interact. ” Commons recognizes this new reality, as it enlivens public spaces with its graceful frame of polished aluminum and handsome finishes of durable upholstery in a variety of colors and patterns.
