5 Design Trends That Will Make Your Office More Productive
Every company has unique needs when it comes to its office. But as Inc. sifts through the contenders for the World’s Coolest Offices list each year, several design elements and philosophies tend to run through many of the hottest, newest spaces.
Inc. spoke with some of the designers behind these offices to find out what’s on trend in 2018.
1. Meeting rooms designated for one particular team.
2. Casual spaces for individual work.
3. Acoustics controls.
4. Room to break up the monotony.
Long rows of desks get boring. Break up the monotony with seating areas or meeting spaces. Give different regions of the office different themes. At BCG Digital Ventures’s new New York City office, employees navigate a labyrinth that weaves around conference rooms and lounges. “It’s complex, almost to the point where someone needs a map to navigate it,” says Christian Robert. “It keeps your interest.”
5. Visual reminders of why employees come to work every day.
