Portable waiting-room spaces allow customers to sit and interact in varying ways, offering a different experience each time they have to wait. In a commission for Dutch Railways, Amsterdam-based design studio Tjep has taken the pain out of waiting and moved the waiting room into a more open environment. The waiting room can be adapted and reconfigured according to user requirements, making it ideal for constantly changing business environments. If a waiting area is not busy, why not remove some of the furniture, or rearrange it so there’s more space? Adapting rooms in this way can help turn linear spaces into more pleasant, right-brained environments that will appeal to the growing generation of consumers in an increasingly right-brained world.
