Ocular™ is a hybrid collaboration table with a unique curved shape that creates a more equitable experience for in person and remote meeting participants.
New Hybrid Shapes
Traditional office room layouts are biased toward in-room collaboration and create sightline challenges and obstructed views. Designers are rethinking traditional norms to improve collaboration spaces for hybrid work.
Portrait to Landscape
A shift from portrait (facing the short wall) to landscape (facing the long wall) allows people on both sides of the camera to see and be seen. Everyone in the room is equidistant to the camera. Remote participants can see facial expressions and body language.
Corners to Curves
The curvature of the table ensures that every in-room participant can also see one another in addition to being at eye level with remote colleagues. That eye-to-eye view creates more equity between those in-room and remote.
Away From The Wall
Pulling the table away from the wall that hosts the technology also improves sightlines between in-person and remote participants.
The curvature of the table ensures that every in-room participant can also see one another in addition to being at eye level with remote colleagues.
A 2.5” grommet hole is included in the center section of the table to support a flush mounted Touch Controller or any additional BYOD cabling.
Pop-up power units support user needs for USB-A, USB-C and standard plug power.
A modesty panel in front of the table keeps everyone’s eyes above the table and focused on the conversation.
The table’s front-angled leg allows people to easily sit side-by-side without knocking into a traditional table leg.
Coupe 3/5 Features
A universal aperture opening allows for routing access for power, microphones, and meeting controllers to the top of the table.
A two-tone top on the Coupe5 allows designers to specify different materials and finishes to meet any aesthetic.
A legless, drum base keeps movement fluid around the table while housing the technology components.
Power pods make it easy to plug in and stay powered up and keep cords from falling into the table.
Ocular was co-designed and developed with Microsoft for the Microsoft Teams Front Row experience (pictured above.) The focus on hybrid collaboration from its inception means it can benefit other hybrid meeting spaces as well using any number of software platforms.
Steelcase and Microsoft have been working together since 2017 to thoughtfully integrate place and technology to create better spaces, co-design products and explore how individuals and teams can do their best work.
