MOS Tall dividers by Three H can create reconfigurable private offices that function as spaces for employees to call their own.
Three H furniture systems introduces a new method to create workplace ‘avenues’, ‘streets’ and ‘booths’. The MOS Tall™ uses MultiStations open space (MOS) dividers in a new taller format. They simply and easily attach to Three H private offices, open plan, lockers, storage, bench seating and even servery-style products.
Designed to help create natural divisions and places in open spaces, the one inch thick MultiStations open space (MOS) divider panels reach from 64 to 85 inches in height in 7 inch increments and can be ganged to create private office type configurations with openness for adjacent circulation space.
How do you think this product will impact workplace design?
MOS Tall is a clever way to create hallways or ‘streets’ with adjoining locker or seating areas. All easily reconfigured or moved without the huge expense of architectural systems. MOS Tall is well suited for any area that does not require a closed in wall structure.
Does MOS Tall help create agile and activity – based workplaces that are becoming so prevalent in new and refurbished facilities? If so, how?
Yes, there are dividers, that can separate specific spaces for different activities, but they are not permanent, not an architectural wall system, and not thick cubicle panels. MOS Tall panels come in 6-inch increments in widths (from 18 to 48”) and 7-inch increments in heights (from 57to 85 inches). As office facilities are being re-thought, to make more socially distancing appropriate places to work, we think MOS Tall will be a perfect furniture solution to accomplish that goal.
The design team shared some background information on the development of MOS Tall:
The inspiration for the product was to create a system that addressed the need for more privacy and space in the open office environment, by creating more private workspaces without doors or walls. We also wanted to create natural avenues for gathering and chatting as people move through the space throughout the day.
The clean, elegant design utilizes hidden fasteners, so the visual effect is that there are no visible posts between the panels.
In companies where private offices are not available or cost prohibited. MOS Tall provides a transitional application (between cubicle and private office). This product line fits well with the move to reconfigure offices for returning employees that have more options for the separation that will be desirable for health and safety in the office.
A year from now what would be the most exciting thing you could think of that would find out about how the product has been accepted, specified, and installed in projects?
Our hope would be that an office space fitted out with MOS Tall provides an engaging, natural, open environment and also a sense of security for employees that felt uncomfortable returning to the workplace due to pandemics such as COVID-19. The tall panels would provide additional protection while still maintaining a design aesthetic.
