The breakout space is primarily a space that stimulates interaction & relaxation where co-workers can take a break from their work. A multi-functional breakout area can also incorporate areas for agile & remote workers to touchdown & also create areas to hold quick informal meetings if the meeting room is busy. This is called a Third Space; an area additional to the office & meeting rooms. Providing a comfortable space for co-workers to kick back & relax is important for well-being & increases workspace relationships thus improving productivity.. Well-designed breakout furniture can aid this activity by encouraging co-workers to use the breakout area more often & not just to relax during break times, but also to work & meet during the rest of the day.
