(pronounced BENCH-ing)

Though many of us might first think of team sports when we hear this term (e.g., “Why is the coach benching his best players when the team is only seven points ahead?”), in the interior design arena the term relates to systems furniture. The idea is to have a basic platform — a “bench” — that allows for maximum flexibility and collaboration in the workplace. Storage pieces and dividers can be moved up and down the “bench” as to easily, quickly and more affordably accommodate different workspace widths and a varying amount of workers.
