Today's offices are designed to respond easily to change. With that in mind, furniture companies are rolling out versatile offerings that suit different needs. Here are five particularly adaptable options.

Another plus: The glass is easier to clean than the usual plastic surface. Available in natural or black stains. Cost: $2,423
Loftwall Wave Divider Screen Loftwall's recycled aluminum screen features curved surfaces that diffuse sound and light. It measures 78 inches tall, comes in three lengths, and can be connected to other dividers. Available in white, black, orange, yellow, and red. Cost: Starting at $1,090 for a 4-foot-long screen
