Office interior designs are getting a fresh look with environmental demountable glass wall panels, flexible modern furnishings and increasingly minimalistic multi-purpose workspaces.
These 2015 office trends serve the new office acumen of collaboration and mobility. The agents of change for this new office climate include renewed environmental awareness, technological advances, flexibility of worker schedules, employee health and wellness and a desire to increase communication.
2015 is About Redefining Organization’s Physical Identity
Many new interior office designs have reconfigured space that has been freed up by an increasing number of decentralized workers. Those who work from home and commute to the office only a few times a week no longer require a designated work space. Opening up these work areas to create shared spaces reduces expense plus supports mobility and collaboration. Office refits and new construction of environmentally aware work spaces make the most of the facility space. Designing open, light filled spaces incorporating reusable materials that can be adjusted over time offers savings, LEED points and increased wellness and comfort to all who interact with the space.
Corporate culture of today recognizes employee comfort and well being is important for recruitment and retention of top performers. Mobile devices and wireless technology open up diverse workplace opportunities that once were limited to hard wired secluded offices. Many firms are addressing this need through increased connectedness both environmentally and technologically. Spatial designs that support communication and offer a variety of flexible uses while providing attractive settings for employees and customers are in high demand.
Glass Wall Panels are a Favorite Office Design Choice
Architecturally accented with interior glass wall panels and glass doors, today’s office interior is bright and welcoming. Interior designers are incorporating daylighting in their designs and adopting natural or upcycled materials in office walls and furnishings. Demountable walls can be reconfigured many times in their long life span. When their life span is complete all elements of the modular glass wall system is recyclable, reducing construction waste. This moveable glass paneled office offers a clean, minimalistic appeal to interior office space planning. These naturally lit, creative spaces invite customers and employees to connect with the outdoors while collaborating in comfortable, flexible settings. Employee comfort is enhanced through daylighting from the glass wall panels and cost savings are enjoyed through reduced energy use.
Minimalistic Office Furnishing Offer Flexible Solutions
With the rise in popularity of mid-century modern furnishings (thank you Mad Men) office furniture design has a sleek, modern and minimalistic appeal that is well suited to the new office acumen. Advances in technology and wireless connectivity allow printer sharing and sharing of other office equipment. These bulky office machines that use to be hard wired in each office or cubicle are now relocated to a centralized space for all to access. Companies benefit from elimination of duplicate equipment costs, reduced utility use, and increased space for streamlined workspaces. Smaller electronic devices have reduced the need for desktop computers, scanners and monitors at each station, further minimizing the clutter in office spaces. Decluttering of work spaces helps reduce distraction and employee stress while boosting productivity and peace of mind.
Technological Advances Increase Mobility and Flexible Work Space
Wireless laptops, smart phones, tablets and other small electronic devices move with the employee. From conference rooms to shared spaces these electronic devices free up office workers and decentralized workers to be mobile. Use of the cloud for storage and sharing of documents and data further expands the freedom and flexibility today’s workers enjoy at home and in the office. Gone are the days of hard wired, gypsum walled corner offices and miles of cubicle farms. The new mobile work place is naturally lit with large open spaces for communication, comfort and collaboration. Offering employees and visitors an option where they do their work, and how they come together creates office unity that cubicles farms only dreamed of. Creating open, light filled spaces with unique features that encourage collaboration and deliver comfort are the new normal. Whether collaborating at the pool table, researching at a patio table on the 2nd floor deck or Skyping in the glass paneled conference room, mobility in the workplace encourages creativity and well being.
