I’m not being sarcastic about the comparison to good airplane seating: I do some of my best writing on airplanes, and while it would be an exaggeration to say that I look forward to long trips because the flights give me a chance to get serious thinking done, it is a factor. Steelcase designer Markus McKenna tells Slate that he didn’t directly copy business class seating, but they look similar because “airline seating and Brody solve for some similar constraints: density, privacy, and comfort.”
It’s also interesting that while they note that office workers are "interrupted or distracted every 11 minutes and it takes over 23 minutes to get back on task,” the system has little holders that keep the screens of your mobile devices visible at all times. So you can avoid your colleagues, but still get notifications about retweets.
