Catalyst works as a team with the customer, architect and designer, and real estate professional to provide the most engaging place for people to work, learn, heal, collaborate and generate ideas. Our proven Activation process leverages our specialized Innovation and Implementation Teams that are at the foundation of our organizational structure.  We provide expertise and guidance through 3 critical stages:

1 TRANSLATE – workplace innovations, new ideas and research into potential solutions
2 CURATE – best solutions into decisions
3 ORCHESTRATE – approved decisions into physical reality and efficient completion.

Catalyst Workplace Activation proudly offers the highest level of service competency and innovation through the integration of the rigorous certification process with Herman Miller. We are the only Certified Herman Miller Network Dealer in Washington and Alaska. This annual certification requires a commitment from each of our employees to be the best and to be accountable. Herman Miller continues to recognize Catalyst as one of their top performing dealers in the Certified Network.


We know Activated work environments have an impact on our professional souls which can lead to positive organizational outcomes.

That is why it’s critical to have expertise in building an Activated workplace with a focus on the culture and purpose of the organization.  The evidence that Catalyst customers have been Activated are revealed by the wider variety of work activities that are supported and the products are designed to support the evolving workstyles.

We have been known for the first 20 years as Business Interiors Northwest, then the next 13 years as BiNW.  Catalyst Workplace Activation will point us forward in a way that establishes the new benchmark for Dealer performance and value.  Our DNA remains the same, but our value in activating workplaces is more clear.

Sean O’Brien continues to lead our company as President & CEO, and the company’s management and 145 team-members remain the same. We are all energized by our new name and look forward to building upon our solid reputation.
