This brings us to the future and what it has in store for office interior design.
Workspaces in the future will be even more heavily aligned with remote work and telecommuting. Digital communication and live streaming will enable workers in one location to partner up with their remote colleagues. In addition, technology will be utilised to make even those who don’t visit the office often feel like a part of the team.
Sustainability is another trend that will become more pronounced as the years go by.
We are already making the switch towards a paperless office and technology will enable many companies to go 100 per cent paperless in the years to come. The conservation of resources and the adoption of greener practices will be adopted by many companies that want a greener image and the ability to attract young, talented workers.
Will there be robots and 3D printers in every office of the future? Will there be spaces that shift their function at the touch of a button? Possibly! The office of the future, however, will be whatever the respective company needs it to be. The importance of boundaries, rules and guidelines will decrease even further to give employees a personalised experience that is tailored to their needs.
Will the office disappear completely, allowing people to do work from wherever they feel comfortable? While telecommuting is on the rise, it’s unlikely for the office to disappear altogether. After all, the sense of community and belonging is still an important part of being a member of the team. Hence, the office is likely to persevere but it will probably experience a radical change from what it looks right now.
Workplace design is a constantly evolving thing. It grows, it scales and it shape-shifts depending on the industry and the company.
This is why Singapore interior designers constantly have to sharpen their skills and adopt innovative concepts in terms of functionality and décor.
Home Guide has been evolving alongside its clients, putting together a wide array of workspace design concepts through the years. We like letting our work speak for itself – just take a look at our office interior design portfolio.
