Gone are the days when inhabitants of waiting areas were forced to drag tables and chairs across a room in order to create an interactive space. At least, that is, if Nurture by Steelcase has anything to say about it. Designed by award-winner George Simmons, the new Neighbor collection is inspired by the natural tendency of people to “gather, share, and create community space,”
Neighbor Offers High-Backed, Comfortable Seating
Comprised of multiple components, Neighbor is a movable, modular collection that allows friends and families in waiting rooms to congregate comfortably. In contrast to the hodge-podge assembly such people are often forced to create, Neighbor facilitates welcoming, semi-private spaces that encourage natural interaction.
The seats are comfortable, yet not overly contoured, a feature designed to make them versatile, to encourage and accommodate a wide variety of postures.
Other components include freestanding tables, low upholstered connecting tables, couches, benches, and ottomans. The individual pieces are available in a wide variety of finishes, including multiple varieties of wooden laminates, fabrics, and paint colors.
