The top office design trends of the year
- Flexible layouts:
This year has been all about having a workplace as adaptive and functional as possible, allowing it to change with the requirements of the company, team and individual. From modular furniture that can be easily moved and rearranged for different purposes to glass architectural walls that can be shifted to change layouts and create open and closed office spaces, flexibility is all about making space work for you and your company.
- Mother nature:
Offices are increasingly integrating themselves with nature, whether they are utilizing recycled or environmentally friendly products and contemporary office furniture or creating open natural spaces like gardens and rooftop gardens for employees to enjoy.
Creating an office design that can adapt to meet new challenges is important, not only regarding your company’s agility but also in terms of adapting to and implementing new office technologies. Using soft wiring, for example, is a simple installation method for power and data that is safer, faster and allows for quick rewiring. Another good idea is re-usable leads and outlets.
From hot-desking and collaborative furniture to software and technology that supports diverse inputs, the most cutting-edge offices of 2017 are emphasizing the ability of the environment to assist and encourage collaboration at every level.
- Minimalist spaces:
Offices can quickly become cluttered. So, this year’s office designs are placing an emphasis on minimalism to help make them clean, clear and inspiring places to work. Tech-heavy spaces hide wiring and power points, lighting is less harsh and as natural as possible, storage is hidden and a good, open flow is kept through all spaces.
- Natural lighting:
Natural lighting isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, it’s better for us as well. And it makes your office space look bigger. Harsh, fluorescent lighting is a strain on the eyes: it causes headaches and affects our natural rhythms. Sunlight is maximized in modern offices by filtering it through materials like glass. Glass office walls help ensure privacy for meetings while allowing light to filter deeper into the building. This approach is also more environmentally and budget-friendly, reducing energy costs.
