This exploratory project investigated the counter-utopian view that conflict can be used as a tool for innovation within collaborative groups. A series of proposals for disruptive office furniture embodied emerging ideas about innovation through conflict. The proposals for Disruptive Office Furniture offer an exaggerated viewpoint on solutions that actively promote innovation and collaboration. They are devised to be brash, outspoken, and confrontational whilst initiating discussion on what tools for innovative work environments may be.
