We can confidently say that COVID-19 has completely transformed office spaces- from corporate to remote work offices. It is in our present and constantly shaping the future. Corporate offices have had to adapt faster than ever to a ‘new’ normal. Making the working team feel comfortable while keeping their office style professional and effective.
As we all begin to get back in our offices, corporate businesses need to adapt the working spaces to the times. Which is why we rounded up the 2021 corporate office design trends and the office furniture to match it. Following the trends, it’s not just for fashion but effectiveness and safety.
A Little ‘Home’ at work
2020 got us all used to working from home or practically anywhere; going back to a complete corporate office is not an option for many businesses. The goal of offices is to provide comfort to their employees and feel relaxed as if they were home, which is why resimercial designs, the mix of residential and commercial features, is such a hit in 2021.
This can be created by switching the classic office furniture and adding features like: natural light, comfortable seating, a mix of textures, light tones, mix of textures/silhouettes, and more. The combination of the features creates an effective, professional yet comforting place to work.
Video Conferencing Everywhere
This is a given; video conferencing has become a norm- guaranteeing every employee to have google meets or zoom installed on their devices. The switch to a small world also switches conference rooms and basic office furniture.
Conference rooms and offices must be re-configured to fit multiple screens, cameras, microphones, outlets, and speakers for bigger in-office meetings. With a great chance of having dispersed team members, even smaller offices need adaptable office furniture for an excellent visual and audio set.
Large workstations have always been around in office furniture, but the increase of remote working and social distancing office design has further inclined. Because everyone is constantly answering video conferencing calls, the noise atmosphere has to be controlled and a great option are work neighborhoods.
Pivot spaces contain movable office furniture that is re-configured easily but has physical barriers in a large space.
Hello Open Spaces
After being locked at home for a year, the worst thing an office can do is deprive their team of natural lighting and open spaces. It is not only safer but aesthetically pleasing for an office. Open areas in corporate lobbies or collaborative rooms allow for the team to spread around and be comfortable.
If the natural lighting is not possible, we always advise our clients to use diffused lights or artificial lighting that mimics natural sunlight. Featured is the lobby for one of our clients whose goal is to provide a comfortable space that remains professional.
