Haworth Showroom LA June 2015 (23)

The design of the new L.A. Haworth showroom was led by Perkins+Will in coordination with the Haworth design team and themed around “whole spaces” to provide the foundation for a sense of well-being. Furniture layouts include a variety of group and individual spaces to accommodate a mix of workstyles and collaborative modes. The showroom is a pilot project for the WELL Building Standard, a performance-focused system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment to promote health and wellness for people. The showroom design incorporates increased levels of fresh air exchange; ergonomic furniture; sit-stand options for desks; non-toxic and non-off-gassing materials; and air and water quality filtering and testing. The new Haworth L.A. space is also pursuing LEED Gold Certification through energy, lighting, and water reduction, as well as use of recyclable and recycled materials.
