Office Design Trends for 2020

Office furniture trends change from time to time and 2020 will be no different. We will see more ergonomic and efficient offices that create enjoyable environments, rooms that enhance collaboration and creativity, achieving greater productivity and effectiveness. Furthermore, here are a few trends we can expect in the new year and beyond.

"Recharge Rooms"
These rooms are more than just a grouping of lounge chairs by the window to drink your morning coffee or chat with coworkers. Employees will be able to take a few minutes of downtime to relax, stretch and recharge their minds in order to tackle another project.

Game Rooms can be complex with ping pong tables and video games or a space with a beanbag chair and small tv. This will allow workers a place to get away and come back to a project refreshed and ready.

Nap Rooms seems counterproductive but having a small room big enough for a comfortable couch, allow those employees working long hours to take a power nap and help them shift perspective and tackle any project with a clear mind.



Biophilia
Bringing nature into the workplace does wonders for a space. Biophilic design "can reduce stress, improve cognitive function, and enhance mood and creativity. These and other outcomes can increase health and wellbeing, as well as productivity."

There are easy ways to incorporate biophilic design into the workplace; incorporate natural features like wood and stone to your office furniture and decor accents or adding plantlife around the office.

Brand Colors Decor
Not just modern offices but also colleges, universities and healthcare are implementing their brand colors into their environment with small pops of color to the furniture, walls or decorative pillows. Branding expresses your unique identity and helps connect with your employees and visitors.



Thoughtful office design will serve to enhance productivity and comfort of both clients and employees and 2020 office trends will continue to promote all these concepts. The offices of the future are becoming more real and little by little they become the offices of the present!

What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so. My environment was not allowing me to do my job efficiently and it was taking it’s toll on my overall wellbeing.” Kamay’s requirements for his home office were having a dedicated office space, great acoustical isolation, proper ergonomics and a great value.  Challenge accepted!
