Steelcase launches a work lounge designed for workers

The ability to focus is a real challenge for today’s employees. They get interrupted or distracted every 11 minutes by text messages, email alerts or even by their own thoughts and feelings, and it takes over 23 minutes to get back on task.


To address this issue and help workers manage their attention better, Steelcase launched Brody – a work lounge designed for a brain at work. Brody creates a shelter from visual distractions, provides privacy and offers an enhanced sense of psychological security. It helps workers regulate their attention and save energy by creating a microenvironment for controlled attention.
