In 2019, the way we work and how we work with others is evolving. The open office, once introduced as a breakthrough in office design, has gone under fire for being too distracting and lacking in privacy. Entire offices are finding themselves overhearing private conversations, phone calls and interactions with clients with no way of escaping the noise. Designers are faced with the challenge of designing offices that retain the aesthetic and social advantages of open plan design while creating solutions to the age-old problems that accompany it. Less a fleeting office trend and more of an expected norm, the “flexible” office was introduced as an open plan environment that embraces the inclusion of private spaces.

An often-overlooked step of having a beautiful and productive office is lighting. Good lighting integrates seamlessly in an office design and improves one’s mood, productivity and ability to focus. While it is easy to get lost choosing the right chair or deciding between desks, a bad lighting decision can have a ruinous effect on your team’s performance. The best office lighting harmoniously balances both artificial and natural light sources and provides the correct lighting for every activity. In this blog, we will discuss the different kinds of office lighting, and how they can be utilized within the design of your office to benefit you and your entire team.
