In 2008, its renovation laid the framework to transform our space into a future-proof, adaptable design that responds to the evolution of our work and strategies. This purposeful design, driven by our Organic Workspace® approach, created a cohesive environment that functions and operates efficiently today.
Four key drivers influenced the design.
Concept testing in process – a “space within a space.”
Create a living lab to measure workplace knowledge and research.

“When I walk through the front door and look down the atrium, it still puts a smile on my face—even after ten years.”
- Dick Haworth, Chairman Emeritus
Exclusive to Haworth, our chassis design is a unique feature built on zone logic that enables maximum flexibility in space planning.
GREEN ROOFOur 45,000-sq. ft., walkable green roof is made up of 11 varieties of sedum. It serves as both an acoustic and thermal insulator, while cooling and filtering the air inside.
The building site was graded to erect an atrium that provides 90% of our members with access to daylight and outdoor views.
Our entire office space is a living lab where we test our workplace knowledge and research with concepts, prototypes, and applications during development.
Several manufacturing plants, as well as our distribution and recycling centers, are adjacent to our office headquarters. Nearly 1.5 million sq. ft. are dedicated to manufacturing.
