We help companies furnish their offices so collaboration is stronger and concentration is sharper.

Every company we work with is unique, and no design is the same. But our threefold goal is to help all companies:

1. create connection & collaboration for teams
2. increase productivity & concentration for individuals
3. capture their unique company culture to inspire visitors & clients

We’ve helped thousands of companies across the Southern California and Dallas-Fort Worth transform their office into a workspace we’re both proud of.

For many employees, an office is their home away from home. That’s why we provide comfortable and attractive office furniture solutions, which help attract and retain talented employees.

So whether you’re a Fortune 500 powerhouse or a start-up company operating out of your garage – we’re ready to help you create the perfect workplace for you and your team.

Combining a research-based approach, deep design expertise, and collaborations with industry thought leaders, Tangram creates solutions that enhance the learning experience.

At Tangram, we work closely with college and university leaders to use place as an asset that supports the institution's mission. Since the 1970s, our unique approach has led us to knowledge and insights that keep us in tune with the needs of education leaders. The solutions we present consider today’s pedagogy and create learning spaces that accommodate change, innovation, and evolution.

Within a single healthcare facility, there are many specific environments, each with a unique set of requirements. Our healthcare furniture and solutions accommodate them all.

Our healthcare team at Tangram understands that, in order to meet the needs of today’s modern healthcare practices, places of care must be as unique as the people within them—from patients and caregivers, to administrators and visitors.

Our healthcare solutions reflect a deep understanding of fundamental human needs, with the versatility and variety to inspire any healthcare environment.

Government facilities are evolving at an accelerated pace. And we’re helping to reimagine how the built environment supports federal, state, and local governing bodies, their staff and daily activities, and the wellbeing of the people they serve.

Our team of dedicated civic and court designers, project managers, account managers, and customer experience specialists partner with our clients to create environments that inspire a sense of community, safety, and trust in government employees and the public they serve.

Overview

Building Neighborhoods at Work

Organizations can create diverse neighborhoods in their workplace as a tangible way to communicate their values and shift their culture. The workplace can create the same energy and connection people feel sitting in a sidewalk cafe or the same level of solitude they experience in their library or the privacy of their own home.

Neighborhoods at work, like the ones people live in, are a homebase for people and teams, departments or project teams. They include a variety of interconnected spaces that support different types of work, a mixture of uses and the natural flow from one to another. They include:

Individual spaces assigned to one person or shared amongst the team.

-Collaboration spaces for in-person and virtual interactions that support the different ways people need to come together.

-Places with appropriate privacy for individual heads down work or finding solitude and rejuvenation.

-Areas to gather, socialize and learn with teammates.

Neighborhoods become a destination, where people feel comfort and confidence they can find their teammates and the tools they need to do their work.

For a neighborhood to truly work for people it has to be based on a fundamentally new employee experience.
4 KEY Design Principles

Every neighborhood has its own distinctive character — four key design principles guide their creation.

Me + We
Just as city neighborhoods have homes and shared spaces, the new neighborhood at work supports both individual and team work​. The amount of space for each will vary, but they support people doing different types of work throughout the day. They help people make quick shifts and give people more options and autonomy over their day.

Fixed-to-Fluid
Great neighborhoods evolve when new people move in or a new store opens. At work, change is constant, sometimes in small ways as teams need to add more people, or in significant ways when they need more collaboration spaces. A hybrid neighborhood is modular and flexible — embracing change instead of resisting it.

Open + Enclosed
Privacy in the office has become even more important during the pandemic. People struggled with significantly open office plans before and now, after working from home, are even more sensitive to the need for control over their privacy. Great neighborhoods blend private and public spaces, making the neighborhood diverse and dynamic.

Braiding Digital + Physical
Urban planners are creating smart cities and hybrid office neighborhoods need to do the same. Video meetings are a new norm in the office and everyone needs to see and be seen, hear and be heard. The technology needs to be easy to use, but having a space that’s the right size with the right features is a key to making it work.

Overview

Challenges of Hybrid Learning

Hybrid is a tectonic shift with a wide-ranging impact that can’t be ignored.

Creating effective hybrid learning environments demands tech integration that goes well beyond just worrying about hardware, connectors and cables. Still, no technology can solve the challenges of hybrid on its own, no matter how advanced or how many bells and whistles it has. In fact, technology can sometimes be part of the problem versus a meaningful part of the solution. Screens can create their own “center of gravity” and pull students away from each other.​ Virtual learning may be solitary and isolating. And​ large group video broadcasts can make it easy for learners to feel “lost.”

For hybrid learning to truly succeed, the virtual and the physical need to coexist in the same space as seamlessly as your smartphone supports talking and texting. For that to happen, the built environment needs to step up and do more.

To achieve the deeper, richer learning experiences we all want, learning spaces need technology that’s easy to use and effective. They need to equitably support learning activities for both in-room and remote participants. And everyone, no matter where they are, must be seen and heard.

Another important development: Students are bringing functions of teleconferencing into learning spaces. For example, in-room students still like to use chat features and share digital content with the push of a button. This elevated use of technology needs to be addressed with power, large displays and easy content-sharing capabilities.

Unfortunately, most classrooms simply haven’t been designed to support such a full load. What’s more, as online activities extend the time and spaces needed in classrooms for virtual interactions, adjacent spaces — labs, libraries and lounges, for example — also begin to take on different roles.​
“Lights, Camera, Audio, Content!”
“When a person is participating in a class remotely, they typically have a very compromised experience,” explains Elms. “They wonder, can people hear me and see me, will I be able to follow the interaction in the room? These are real barriers that separate in-room and remote learners. The impact on learning is profound.”

To solve this problem, planners and designers now need to think more like movie directors, says Elms, and consider elements such as lighting, camera locations, the audio experience and how content can be shared in the space.
