Creative Spaces
According to joint research conducted by Steelcase and Microsoft Corp., creativity is seen as a critical job skill driven by organizations’ need for innovation and growth in addition to employees’ desire for meaningful work. However, many organizations invest in technology and space as separate entities rather than approaching them holistically. This lack of cohesion creates sub-optimal conditions for fostering creativity. People need to work alone, in pairs and in different size groups throughout a creative process, and they need a range of devices that are mobile and integrated into the physical workplace. Additionally, spaces should inspire people without compromising performance.
Together, Steelcase and Microsoft have joined forces to explore the future of work, developing a range of technology-enabled Creative Spaces designed to help organizations foster creative thinking and better collaboration. This ecosystem of spaces seamlessly integrates the best of Microsoft Surface devices with Steelcase architecture and furniture. They include a Maker Commons, Respite Room, Focus Studio, Ideation Hub and Duo Studio. Each of the Creative Spaces is intentionally designed to support the needs of individuals and teams as they move through the different stages and activities of the creative process.

Steelcase
...a company dedicated to helping people work more effectively.

Whatever you need to accomplish, Steelcase can provide you with the environment and the tools to do it better, faster and more effectively. That's because we're passionate about unlocking the potential of people at work. It's the fundamental principle on which our company was founded in 1912 and it remains our single-minded focus in the 21st century.

We make it our business to study how people work, to fully understand the ever-changing needs of individuals, teams and organizations all around the world. Then we take our knowledge, couple it with products and services inspired by what we've learned about the workplace, and create solutions that help people have a better day at work.

Steelcase began in 1912 as The Metal Office Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We received our first patent in 1914 for a steel wastebasket -- a major innovation at a time when straw wastebaskets were a major office fire hazard. That led to metal desks, and we've led the way with product and service innovations ever since. Today, our portfolio of solutions address the three core elements of an office environment: interior architecture, furniture and technology. We changed our name to Steelcase in 1954 and became a publicly held company in 1998.

Steelcase was founded by people with a strong commitment to integrity and doing the right thing for their customers, employees, business partners, associates and neighbors. Their principles became the foundation of our company, passed on from decade to decade. Living our core values is essential to our identity, reputation and success today, just as it was in the past.

At Steelcase, we:
Act with integrity
Tell the truth
Keep commitments
Treat people with dignity and respect
Promote positive relationships
Protect the environment
Excel


...a company with a global reach

Although we are still headquartered in Grand Rapids, Steelcase today is an international company with approximately 16,000 employees worldwide, manufacturing facilities in over 50 locations and more than 900 dealer locations around the world.
