The coffee area is often the very nerve of a company. It is the first place we meet in the morning, where we address things we think about and care about. The space is one of the areas we usually visit during the day. Since it is a site of frequent visits, it is an easy place to create a zone that invites interaction.

No one likes a cluttered coffee space. Loose pillows and cushions that need to be attended to and fluffed are often not looked after by cleaners.

Many people see the value of sofa groups in the coffee zones. This zone can also serve as informal meeting places if you plan to use it for multiple purposes. This is how you get a break from the project room or meeting places inside the work zone. If you plan to use the coffee zone for more people, you have to take into consideration the different needs people have. Sitting very low is uncomfortable for some work attires, and it can be difficult to get up for some age groups.
