What Have We Learned About Office Design in 2020?
Every year, office trends are different. One year it’s all about cubicles and the next it’s about flex space. One year earth tones are all the rage and the next it’s all about neons. So what have we learned about office design in 2020?
Cubicles Are Back And Better Than Ever
Back when cubicles first hit the scene, cubicle walls and screens were supposed to minimize distractions and boost space efficiency and productivity. Then cubicles shrunk to cramped, anti-social rigid boxes and they fell out of favor.
Today’s cubicles look more like ‘privacy pods.’ Offering hip design and distraction-free comfort, the office furniture experts at Desks Inc. are seeing a comeback to cubicles. They’re not replacing open workstations—just being added to them. By providing a reasonable number of privacy pods in your open office, your employees will have an option for a safe, quiet space away from prying eyes, interruptions and noise.
When Desks Move, So Do People
Human beings need to be physically active to be both healthy and productive. And studies have shown that sitting for hours and hours is a bad idea. In fact, it’s as bad as smoking! Height-adjustable desks are changing the workplace. Now that desk-tables can move too, employees can customize their entire workstation to suit them. Look for increased popularity in height-adjustable desks—even more so than standing desks.
Get Balance and Productivity With Flex Spaces
Over the past few years, we’ve seen a migration toward flex spaces. In 2020, flexibility was the battle cry. Companies have embraced work-life balance and flexibility enhancers like health bars, napping stations and fully outfitted recharge rooms. They’re also encouraging more work-from-home and hot desking cultures, especially in the wake of COVID-19.
