Steelcase meets open office backlash with 'Susan Cain Quiet Spaces'
Open office layouts — once welcomed as the alternative to dehumanizing, "cagelike" cubicle farms — are now being bashed as too noisy, distracting and unproductive. Steelcase Inc. has a solution: Quiet spaces. The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based furniture maker is teaming up with Susan Cain, bestselling author of "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking," to create rooms where workers can escape the over-stimulation of the office work environment for a little peace.
