The seating arrangement that you describe comes in different flavors but its main purpose is to "foster collaboration". I used to work at a Goldman Sachs sister company, and that is how they did it. Very weird at first, but it works.

Many software companies do this now, Google, etc.

It works. You would think everyone would be talking all day and no work would get done, but the opposite to this is true.
