"Open Office Frontier" (OOF) encapsulates Fuji Xerox's business vision. Open Office is an unrestricted business environment that connects the knowledge of different people, breaking down the barriers of time, space, company, and structure. We present an innovative workplace concept called "E Open Office" (EOO). The EOO references the original ubiquitous computing concept covering not only applications but space design and work-style design. We have designed and implemented four types of workplaces, which include a decision-making boardroom, an enhanced discussion room, an idea-creation space, and an informal salon.
