Statistics show that 40% of the work force today are Millennials. Co-Working Spaces are becoming more and more popular. With efficient space planning, our furniture can accommodate different types of companies and their needs. Team spaces with standing tables, comfortable couches and movable walls are becoming popular, although with “isolation rooms”. These are soundproof phone booths, or lounges where technology is forbidden

The “working from home” trend is now reversing as companies realize that offices can be creative clusters. Microsoft, G.E. and IBM are turning into a new hybrid design – open spaces, whiteboard walls, no offices, sit-or-stand desks, huddle rooms and phone rooms. In surveys, company’s workers say they are getting more done, faster in the new space. Research concluded that exposure to sunlight and outdoor views and well-ventilated offices correlated to fewer sick days. Also, offices in which workers can choose their conditions, can increase productivity on cognitive tasks. So efficient space planning, translates into motivated employees, more productivity and thus, more success.
