A new study by the Brookings Institution and Project for Public Spaces has set out to identify a shift in workplace design as a function of emerging business models and workspace utilisation with emphasis increasingly placed on a core ethos of the workspace occupants as opposed to the previously traditional ‘style-driven’ approach.
A new trend is emerging in office interior design that is indicative of a shift in thinking from providing a space in which workers can be productive towards providing a space that promotes and enhances productivity, a shift from the passive to the active workspace.
We spend so much time in the office, it’s only right that we should put more consideration into its overall style and environment. Imagine if your office could feel just like your home!
Lighting and colour can have a significant impact on your concentration and productivity. The selection and design of both is something that should happen as part of an overall space planning process.
Increasingly, ergonomics is a driving force in office interior design, layout and furnishing with employers taking greater care in ensuring both the physiological and psychological needs of the workforce are taken more seriously in the workplace.
Technology has changed the way we spend our time in the office and at home. We spend more time sitting and using computers than ever before and the likelihood is that this will only increase.
