Dynamic Workspaces Redefined: Flexibility Meets Collaboration

Okamura is thrilled to announce the launch of Lives Post + Beam, a groundbreaking solution for creating functional and flexible collaborative spaces. First introduced at NeoCon 2023, Lives Post + Beam was incredibly well received by visitors and earned several awards including Best of Neocon Innovation and Business Impact, HiP, Metropolis Likes, GOOD DESIGN, and Red Dot. Designed with the modern workplace in mind, Lives Post + Beam is a testament to the power of simplicity in fostering communication and innovation.

Key features of Lives Post + Beam include:

  1. Loosely Partitioned “Room-in-Room” Concept: The state-of-the-art “room-in-room” concept fosters enhanced communication and collaboration within teams by creating a dedicated space that promotes a more intimate and cohesive atmosphere. This space encourages team members to share their thoughts, ideas, and concerns more freely, ultimately leading to increased collaboration and innovative thinking.
  2. Flexible Room Configuration: Thanks to its unique moveable panel system, Lives Post + Beam can be flexibly arranged to accommodate varying purposes and the number of occupants. This allows for the creation of diverse spaces, such as cozy cafes, brainstorming and meeting spaces, engaging workshop areas, restorative meditation zones, and so much more.
  3. Revolutionary Rail System: The movable panels feature a sophisticated rail system that allows for effortless adjustments, including spanning across posts, changing panel order, and flipping from front to back. Phase 2 of Lives Post + Beam will include a drapery option, which will provide enhanced privacy and a visually distinct division of space.
  4. Wide Range of Design Options: This product offers an extensive array of options, including 20 frame colors that range from vivid hues to add a playful touch, to more subdued tones for a sophisticated look. Panels are offered in two types: moveable and fixed, with essential whiteboard panels for brainstorming sessions, monitor panels for presentations, and felt panels which gently enclose the space. A full height fixed wall panel will also be included in the Phase 2 launch.
  5. Modular Design: Lives Post + Beam’s modular design ensures easy repurposing and contributes to the product’s longevity. Its modular components facilitate easy installation, layout changes and reuse of parts without the need for extensive construction work. This adaptability saves both time and resources, while providing a long-lasting solution for your workspace needs.

Lives Post + Beam is the ultimate solution for businesses and organizations looking to create an environment that fosters communication, collaboration, and innovation. Its seamless blend of form and function will revolutionize the way people interact and work together in shared spaces.
