5 notable office furniture trends to follow

Jul 10th 2015 at 2:23 AM

Competition in business is seeing a boost almost daily causing the pressure on professionals to increase. Even in this changing scenario and the rapid development of communication technology, 70% of professionals still work in inflexible, traditional cubicles. To give professionals a suitable workplace as per the changing responsibilities, these five trends are extremely popular:

Ensure maximum productivity

Open plan workspaces are highly preferred these days, but still some employees need a quiet place to think on some business processes and project details. Office furniture designers need to incorporate the best of both the worlds to ensure that there remains enough space for every employee – whether they need to work in collaboration or need a noise-free space to concentrate alone. Herein, use of acoustic pods and noise-cancellation screens is on the rise.

Keep it minimalistic

Many offices take a minimalistic approach when it comes to personal workstations. Wireless connectivity and compact devices like tablets and smartphones have made personal work-spaces to shrink. The space requirements have reduced significantly, but the focus is on making efficient utilisation of the available space. This requires office furniture to be designed more efficiently to make good use of the space.

Comfort is of utmost importance

There is no doubt that people spend more time in offices than their own living room. This generates the need for more comfortable office furniture that can keep the staff happy at the work place. Businesses are giving preference to investing in ergonomic chairs and adjustable office desks to allow their employees to work comfortably uninterrupted by any potential injury or chronic pain. Similar kind of furniture is looking for conferences and meeting halls as well.

Furniture must facilitate communication

Technology in today’s world facilitates instant communication, and offices focus on creating central zones or meeting places where collaborative work can be promoted. This promotes the trend of less cubicles and open space plans. So businesses need furniture to facilitate this trend. Also, the furniture should have multimedia technologies and wireless support systems to help the professionals.

Creativity at its best

Modern offices focus more on being creative. Even the major IT companies are busy setting examples with the customised and innovative office furniture that is not just visually appealing, but comfortable too. At times, meetings can be seen taking place in a cable car or comfortable lounge chairs – which serves a higher objective. This brings professional responsibilities in a creative environment – boosting the working efficiency of office staff.
