No two firms are exactly the same. Every organisation has its own agenda, ways of operating and so on. It’s no surprise then that the layouts of different working environments vary considerably. After all, it’s important that office furniture and the general design of these spaces reflects the precise needs of the enterprises that use them.
The good news is, there is now more choice than ever before when it comes to chairs, screens, desks and so on. This means that if you are on the lookout for new products to help alter the way your environment looks and functions, you shouldn’t struggle to find what you’re after.
For example, you might be eager to stock up on new meeting room tables in order to encourage more communal working among your employees. Indeed, according to an article by PSFK, businesses are embracing a more communal attitude when it comes to office design.
The firm suggested that this is an effective way to “cater to the shift toward mobile work styles and to encourage greater workplace transparency”. It added: “By removing walls and cubicles in favour of more open floor plans, businesses are hoping to stimulate productivity and innovation in a communicative environment where spontaneous interactions can happen across disciplines and teams. This new approach to office flow is also meant to empower individual employees by giving them the flexibility to work wherever, however and with whomever they choose.”
A case in point
It pointed to a newly renovated office occupied by internet phone company Skype that features a series of shared spaces designed principally for collaboration. The premises contains a series of shared activity spaces at its core, with quieter “concentration zones” out towards its perimeter. These areas are quieter.
