The working and learning environment of the future
Mecanoo architecten 与 Gispen合作探索未来多活动同时发生的工作与学习空间。空间需要多样化、个性化以及可以容纳多种活动，同时还要具有创造性、创新性以及身份认同性，可以供人们在此交流想法以及互相启发，这些是创造空间的核心思想。
Mecanoo architecten and Gispen are collaborating to explore the working and learning environment of the future, spaces that accommodate multiple activities simultaneously, without becoming generic. Diversity, personalisation and addressing the specific aims of different activities are central to creating environments where creativity, innovation and identity flourish, and where people can exchange ideas and inspire one another.

A modular furniture concept
HUBB responds to the rapid developments and changes within work and education environments, by facilitating different types of activities within existing contexts. With a seemingly simple core form, HUBB comprises a series of building blocks that enables endless combinations. This offers the flexibility for customisation, plus the ease and quality of a proven system. And if the spatial requirements change, the building blocks can be easily reused by adapting or expanding the configuration. A set of chairs used for a collaborative setting can be transformed into a hub for concentrated working with the addition of a roof element. Or they become a bench when joined together. For every context there’s a fitting combination that responds to the unique format of working or learning.

With its modularity and standardised components, as well as the use of responsibly sourced timber and recyclable materials like PET and steel, HUBB is a highly sustainable solution. The series has been designed and engineered for manufacturing according to the principles of the circular economy. Every component is fully (de)mountable and reusable. HUBB is a timeless solution that will last for years to come.

One space, three zones
The ideal working and learning environment offers zones for focused activity, collaboration and socialising, each characterised by different activities. Utilising the modular HUBB furniture concept, different zones flow seamlessly into each other, accumulating in a landscape that has the flexibility to be tailored to what’s required at that moment. The diverse zones can be integrated in a single space where all users can find a space that suits their desired activity.
