Bringing Color to the Workplace
Companies are moving away from boring whiteboards and creating brainstorming spaces in colors from eye-popping yellow to basic black and even clear-coated wood grain.
Dressed Up Rustic
Salvaged wood has made its way from coffee shops and farm-to-table restaurants to well-designed workplaces. In 2016, designers are dressing up rustic touches with colorful finishes.
Feeling Right at Home
The front-gabled house—think of a classic Monopoly piece—has become the go-to shape for enclosing everything from conference rooms to dining tables.
Cubicle Comeback – Personal Space
People crave personal space, especially in an open office. Designers are creating updated alternatives to the cubicle and furnishings with integrated technology that can form virtual cocoons.
Kaleidoscopic Conference Rooms
Designers are putting a psychedelic spin on translucent partitions with iridescent glass walls.
Furniture on the Go
Flexible spaces will continue to dominate office design as a way to accommodate many different styles of working, but look for more clever designs for radically reconfigurable furnishing in 2016.
