Functional areas of office ,such as working space, meeting space, supporting space and reception space, has its corresponding form of furniture. Since furniture is closest to the people, furniture must meet functional need of users. “Appropriate where the meaning of humanity” must be taken to be the first element to consider the office furniture. That is the meaning of “people first, office next, office furniture comes last” we proposed.

Usually,“appearance”will be considered as first element for choosing furniture in supporting and reception space, and then “use” and “price”. The major type of furniture is individual product.

In brief, individual product is the furniture without any structural relationship with other products and can be used in the space freely. System furniture is a kit-of-parts with interlocking elements and cannot be used alone. Flexible configuration and change is natural characters of system product. Configuration refers to integration of all elements, and change refers to availability of each element’s shape, dimensions and colors. Workstation furniture can be taken as a small system in work space, while products in all functional areas are big system which is interconnected. However, no matter small system or large system, outstanding elements to enable consistency throughout all spaces are key factor to build a successful office. Therefore, reasonable layout planning and furniture configuration has to be finished by owner, interior designer and furniture supplier.
