An office design used to be determined by cost efficiency, but now companies realize that the well-being of their employees is far more important in the long haul. Therefore, the design of our offices needs to evolve in response to an employee’s wish to simply feel better at work.
The Evolution of an Open Office
As a response to the problem designers started creating more private spaces using table dividers, adapting nooks and crannies for work, designing silent rooms, and putting phone booths inside the offices.
Well-being at the Office Enhanced by Nature
Flowers and plants burst into our office spaces to help us breathe and reawaken our pure life energy.
Fun and Dynamism at Work
Ersa, one of the design companies, has just introduced a new line of office furniture called the Carnival. “Let the fun begin in the office!” reads the motto for the furniture series. The goal of the designing team is to bring a festive spirit to the workplace.
Useful and Aesthetic Design
A useful design will focus on the needs of the users: intimacy, creative space, team workshops, relaxing area, silent rooms. As a complement, an aesthetic design will bring nature-inspired decors, furniture, and art to awaken a pleasant work atmosphere. Our homes and apartments will serve as a springboard for new office ideas. Lounge sofas, comfy armchairs, fireplaces, wall murals, bookshelves, posters, and candles will be seen more often in our office interiors. Hopefully, these will make us happier at work.
