Action Office® System Designed by Robert Propst and Jack Kelley
An enduring response to change
Over the past half-century, two things have remained constant: Work continues to change and Action Office makes it simple for you to manage that change. From the introduction of computers to new understandings of the importance of choice and variety in the workplace, Action Office has helped individuals and organizations adapt.
For the individual, the Action Office system of interchangeable components can be configured to support two fundamental needs—privacy and what designer Robert Propst called involvement: “...to be...part of the family of activity.” For the organization, Action Office provides return on investment through simple specification, installation, configuration, management, and updating.
Action Office provides you with a return on investment through its long-term use, durability, low cost, and ability to update easily. The interchangeable panels and components fit together perfectly, and reusability of components has always been a criterion for enhancements.
Versatile and hardworking, Action Office offers exceptional value. It’s a straightforward, hassle-free solution—easy to understand and order, quick to install, and simple to reconfigure.
Propst’s design for Action Office provided easy and ongoing revision—one that would keep pace with work as it evolved. Decades later, the world’s first open-plan office solution continues to be relevant and responsive, a proven performer that can support individual and collaborative work.
