Visualizing the future of work.
Welcome to Sulaco
Sulaco is Herman Miller's fictitious company of the future. Sulaco was designed to demonstrate how a company can create an environment built for the new era of work - by embracing a robust distributive work model. Combining research and industry demands, Sulaco brings choice, technology, and a defined purpose to the office of tomorrow.
Today’s challenges require modern offices to meet the needs of employees while anticipating and welcoming change. Workspaces must be able to adapt to allow for effective collaboration and communication in small and large group settings. Data can be essential to understanding our space utilization. It allows us to understand how our people use the space and lends insight to what changes could better support the organizations’ goals and ensure each person has the right tools to perform at their highest level.
Adopting wellbeing initiatives in the planning of the office landscape allows organizations to create workspaces that support happier, healthier, and more productive employees. Workspaces can quickly and easily be adjusted to incorporate COVID-19 circulation and physical distancing requirements while offering flexibility for the future.
Providing variety in work settings empowers employees with the choice of working where they feel most comfortable. Desking, group settings, and communal gathering areas can be planned to allow for heads-down focus work while also allowing for staff ideation and immersive meetings. Outdoor workspaces can be designed to have true desking and collaborative work areas, allowing the same individual and group activities that are supported inside the office to move outdoors. Plaza areas and clubhouses help build and facilitate relationships while allowing teams the spaces they need for agility work.
The future of work is flexible.
Sulaco serves as a source of inspiration for how companies can embrace the new work environment. It's clear as we look to the future that distributed work and a flexible planning model are vital for office to support current and future needs.
