In the past, workspace was designed to increase productivity and efficiency of an individual. Now more than ever workplaces also need to encourage creativity and teamwork. The number one word to remember when it comes to modern office design is collaboration.
Attracting the best of the Millennials requires changes to the physical look of the interior workspace—that means furniture is becoming more colorful with more artistic options. Generation Y doesn’t want to sit in 6×8 cubicles with tall panels, with no social interaction or exposure to natural light.
Modern office designs are making a departure from the traditional cubicle or panel-based workstations to more open and collaborative workspaces. Workstation trends include low transparent panels between spaces, break out areas and circular workstations are becoming increasingly popular because they encourage co-creation and increase productivity.
