Office Space Ideas That Take Flexibility to a Whole New Level

Posted on Updated on

everblock-office-deskOK. Do you remember one of my previous blogs stating that flexibility would be key in office space design? Well, there are actually some office space ideas, concepts and materials that take “flexibility” to a whole new level.

Take, for example, the Everblock®. If you were ever a Lego® fanatic or ever dreamed of living or working in a room built of Lego® blocks, your dream could easily become a reality. Inspired by Lego®, Everblocks® are sturdy modular plastic life-sized interlocking blocks that can easily be used to build a wall divider or room whenever needed– but that’s not all. These same blocks can be used to build chairs, desks, sofas, shelving, cabinets….pretty much any furniture your office would need… and your team can be the creative “Masterbuilders” of it all. Talk about flexibility!

How about the sliding inflatable wall that doubles as a lounge bed? That’s right. A glossy transparent inflatable screen resembling a giant form of bubble-wrap is set within a frame on castors to create a great sliding office partition that can easily be moved around to define certain office areas without compromising too much on the open office space concept. This same inflatable screen can slide out of its frame and be laid on the floor to create a lounging area or bed. That’s flexibility.

tetris-chair-sofa-bed-sdesignunitIf you are more of a Tetris® fan, then here is an idea for your office– Tetris® inspired furniture pieces which when fitted together can either be a table with chairs (suitable for a lunchroom setting), a lounge sofa, a full length display table, shelving, a storage unit…the possibilities are seemingly endless.

What is great about these ideas is that they not only facilitate flexibility in an office space, but they also encourage active creativity while taking into account the well-being of staff. Now that is thinking outside of the box.

Bigger Companies, Smaller Office Spaces – What Gives?

Posted on Updated on

modern-business-office-spaceWell, 2016 is gone but the trends of larger growing companies occupying a smaller office space footprint and fitting more people in smaller work spaces will still be strong in 2017.

Why? Well, there are a few contributing factors:

  1. Companies operate differently – Throughout 2016, more and more companies adapted the “Workplace 2.0” style of operations. Instead of stringent 8am-4pm or 9am-5pm working hours for most staff, organizations allowed more flexible hours for their workers. Instead of assigned workstations, office and workstation “hotelling” or reservation-based seating became a popular practice. There were increasingly more opportunities for staff to work from home. Some organizations even found it more economically sound to outsource some of their administrative or in-office operations to outsiders who wanted to work from home. In addition, part-time and contract hires were on the rise. These trends are likely to continuing through 2017.
  2. Technological advances – Video conferencing, teleconferencing, Smartboards and other technological advances have lessened the demand for staff to physically meet in the same room, thus lowering the need for large meeting room spaces. The introduction of virtual storage spaces like the Cloud lessen the need for a lot of physical filing and storage space. In fact, physical filing and storage units have been re-purposed to store personal belongings, limiting the need for physical storage to be at the workstation itself. Most work is done on electronic devices (laptops, Ipads, etc) which are physically thinner and smaller. Even signatures are electronic– thus limiting the need to deal with physical paperwork.
  3. Economy – Though demand for commercial real estate remains relatively high in Toronto, there is an overall level of uncertainty about how the Canadian economy will be affected by key international events like Brexit and the US election results. The low oil prices and the low Canadian dollar, however, seem to make Canada an attractive country for international organizations to invest and expand in, which could be why commercial real estate vacancies could experience a slight decrease in 2017.

So what gives? Big companies, both local and international, will likely continue to occupy smaller office spaces throughout 2017 in order to maintain a competitive edge in a volatile economy.
