Workplaces are on the move—literally. We have seen the trend tiptoeing into our daily office life for some time now, but it seems 2015 may be the year of the complete office overhaul. The original open office concept was conceived in the 1950’s by a team in Hamburg, Germany—they thought it would facilitate communication. With almost 70% of all offices embracing this open floor plan, we assume it’s working, but is it really? Some results are showing otherwise. There are so many open office concepts that employers are now embracing—some more interesting and creative than others.
A cut-out tree in the middle of the reception area invites guests to take a seat on the blue sofa and imagine working here, in this creativity-stricken space. Encouraging creativity and collaboration via the amazing details, this working space fills up the gap when employees find themselves in a creativity stump. Upstairs, the glass boardroom was accentuated by a collection of colorful stripes that support a “Live and Plugged In” sign. Two and a half years were necessary for the team to find the perfect spot for their new headquarters, but now this former candle factory-turned contemporary art gallery in the 90s is a bright and cheery working environment looking on to the future while showcasing an inspiring and creative office space design.
Get comfortable, sweatpants are the official apparel of working from home, right? But getting comfortable is more than just clothes and desk chairs. If your office space is large enough, you may consider adding a reading chair or daybed for taking calls or taking breaks. If you expect to have visitors in your office, designate some space for them as well. Will you opt for a more informal setup, as described above, or stick with simple chairs facing your desk space? Either way, setting up your office to accommodate both you and anyone you invite into your office requires thought as to how you’ll use the space.
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Ellipzes has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
