He design in work spaces is evolving very fast to adapt to the new needs and demands of workers and companies. Gone are the companies of classic organizational charts with many offices that divided and marked distances between the categories and jobs of employees.
The new tendencies they go through opening the spaces and creating flexible jobs that foster creativity, agility and teamwork; use the individual rooms as meeting or meeting points, more or less formal, and include spaces designed to take a (necessary) rest.
Much of these transformations we saw in this article (below), by the hand of some offices designed by the Study Do-We.es and its new philosophy #TransformativeDesign.
FURNITURE THAT ADAPTS TO CHANGES AT WORK
To adapt to this change, flexible and modular furniture is being created as the collection Steelcase Bivi.
Wave Share It Collection, also from Steelcase which are furniture that include light dividers that serve as blackboards, files etc ... but also have the important function of reduce and absorb part of the ambient noise that is generated in these open offices.
Also, fully height-adjustable tables such as you are from Actiu, so that the table suits you (and not the other way around).
Or even Smart furniture, such as the Actiu Next which, connected to the internet, allows you to monitor and collect information anonymously about the status and use of the workspace, encouraging the adoption of healthy habits. The implementation of this technology in furniture aims to provide information to the user about factors that could affect him, such as posture, air quality, temperature, humidity, lighting or noise.
But if yours is the classic style Ikea this year has released a collection of office furniture which also promises comfort with "retro airs"
