Two years ago, when Azure asked Tom Lloyd of PearsonLloyd about the future of offices, he talked about the importance of humanity. “We aren’t aiming to make offices look like homes,” he said. “We are investing in people’s emotions.” That thinking is at the core of Zones, a growing collection of furnishings that, more than anything, encourage employees to focus, engage and interact with one another. The collection’s light and inviting profiles are distinctly contemporary in their merging of technology with tactility. Many pieces have natural beech wood legs with business-casual inflections, while the semi-private enclosures feel as inviting as a first-class train cabin.
