Cubicle Anatomy

Not sure what's what when it comes to shopping for used and refurbished cubicles? Well, no worries. We've gone through the trouble to illustrate exactly what we're talking about when start dropping all that crazy cubicle lingo. A few minutes here and you'll be talking like the cool kids.

Herman Miller AO1 Tall Wall Cubicle

This Herman Miller cubicle is a perfect example of one of our basic workstations with great features. Notice the open ends, which means when configured in rows or pods, the internal stations will be enclosed, but the stations on the ends will be open. Also, there is no base on this model, prohibiting the option for electric. All of our Binder Bins feature Task Lights underneath and the End Panel leg provides some nice privacy.

Herman Miller AO2 Short Wall Cubicle

This Herman Miller Short Wall illustrates the difference between having enclosing wing panels and the above open walled design. It features a hanging box/file and a computer corner. Short Walls are great for letting light in and encouraging collaboration, and this one is no exception.
