Latest trends in office interior design
It is always difficult to predict the latest trends in any design related industry but with “Millennials” entering the job market, combined with “Generation X” this makes for an interesting time in office design and development. Gone are the days of cellular offices and even the open plan design is on its way out. Open plan design was supposed to be the way to go but it allows for very little privacy or creativity. Open plan works well for collaboration but can also be extremely distracting for some.As an employer the challenge is to create an office environment which allows for more creativity and healthy living. What is needed is a flexible work environment which allows for open plan spaces for creative projects and team tasks and private work spaces where the employee can concentrate on individual tasks. With an experienced Interior Architect and Space Planner the perfect combination of open plan spaces and cellular offices can be achieved, depending on the type of business and business culture. Flexibility allows for optimum creative thinking within an office environment. So the design of the office space is extremely important and should be adaptable to forever changing trends and demands. It directly impacts our ability to work and to be at our most productive, attentive and creative every day. So apart from creating a “cool” look the following trends should be considered healthy and have more physical exercise, therefore we need to create an environment in which people move around, even the sit – stand desk is a great way of moving whilst being at work. Biopillical designThe use of foliage and greenery is a major trend for next year as it softens the work place and adds colour and interestHome style comfort designUse of soft couches, chairs, homestyle kitchens and bistro or café type settings are the trend.
