As the date for offices to re-open draws near, there is a lot of speculation of what reopening will mean for many businesses. For decades, offices have been transitioning to more flexible and collaborative arrangements. It can almost seem like a drawback to the past, for businesses to consider how to keep employees apart. In this post, we will be your toolbox to help guide you through re-opening your office post Covid-19.
Many of us, who have found our lives significantly impacted by the pandemic sweeping across the globe, have found ourselves waiting endlessly for that moment when things will return to normal. In the last weeks, it has become clear that many norms of the office will change. And company leaders, building owners and designers are already anticipating changes in how offices will look, once the shelter-in-place orders have been lifted, and employees begin transitioning back to work.
In 2020 we have seen the collaborative office furniture trend reach new heights, with intuitive and fun furniture lines that are designed specifically to enhance employee engagement. No longer a fleeting buzzword, at every price point your team can bring a “collaborative space” into your office. At OFH, our team has compiled a list of some of our favorite lines from the last year, from café seating to lounge, that focuses on the “third spaces” that have emerged in offices, to tackle the necessity in today’s offices for communication and connection.
Welcome to 2020. And while there are no flying rocket cars or space shuttles to Mars, we’re at least happy to report that we have the technology to keep our offices quiet with office phone booths, noise-canceling headphones and more. But the question is: have our offices caught up with the times?
Time flies! This year, Office Furniture Heaven celebrates its 29th year in office furniture. Since our office opened in 1991, we’ve definitely seen it all. From the transformation of technology beginning with the rise of the Information Age/ Dot-Com Boom to the Wellness and Collaborative Office movement taking place in offices today.
For some fun, we’ve decided to take a quick step into our Office Furniture Time Machine and take you back to how offices were like in 1991. From floppy disks to the beige furniture, it’s up to you to decide whether you love or hate these offices of the 90’s!
In the last few months, our experienced team of Sales Executives and Designers has been busy at work creating truly beautiful and outstanding office design solutions for our clients.
