A look at Office Trends anno 2015
Just as our world is constantly evolving, so is the “world” within offices. New needs arises every year, and new solutions are developed to meet these. As we are a part of the office interior industry, we love to stay updated on the latest office trends, and we would like to share some of the latest news on office trends anno 2015 with you. Because they are quite exciting – not to mention very relevant for everybody working at an office. Which most of us do, right?
As you all know, smartphones, tablets and notebooks make the office more mobile and less dependent of location, which means that the design of the office has started to change in order to fit the new ways of working.
Therefore, we will see a trend where the central zone of the office will play a bigger role as a “point of communication” – a place where people meet to brainstorm, do classic business and be social. This will mean an increased focus on creating open spaces like working cafes and creative lounges where people can exchange ideas. As the open spaces grow bigger so do the importance of great acoustics.
Also, due to a continuously greater focus on work environment a growing demand for sit/stand solutions and ergonomically correct height-adjustable workstations will be seen in 2015.
Finally, again due to the mobile and space-saving technologies we all use today, workstations are becoming more compact and minimalistic. Focus will be on ergonomics and design. Even screens and organization panels are being designed to bring more life into the workstations.
