Businesses are prioritizing the comfortability of their staff and workspaces so they can work at their maximum potential. We’ve put together the top trends that are happening in office design around the world.
#1: Multi-Purpose Workspaces
The almighty cubicles are officially disappearing in modern designs of office spaces. Cubicles are now being overthrown by benches which have non-assigned seating. With freedom of seating increasing in popularity, we can foresee the trend moving towards to oval-shaped office desks to allow group discussions for 4-6 people.
#2: Offices Designed by Colour
Several studies have actually proven colours increase productivity, creativity and happiness. If you organize your office space with colour, it will help your thoughts become more colourful and organized as well. These trends are being led by several fortune 500 companies utilizing wide spectrum of coloured furniture in their office spaces.
#3: Flexibility in Work Spaces
Flexibility has become a huge component for designers to look out for when creating office layouts in 2017. Since modern work equipment can be mixed, stacked and moved around, it offers several different combinations for a more dynamic and collaborative workplace.
The Friends of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives Society hosted its fourth annual Night at the Museum fundraiser at the Gordon Smith Gallery Friday, Feb. 24. More than 150 guests attended the sold-out gala, enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres as they put down bids on fabulous silent auction items including a private dinner for six aboard a restored 1890s CP Railway business car and a private tour of the museum’s collection warehouse. The more than $11,000 raised during the event will help in the opening of the new museum in 2019 on the 100 block of West Esplanade and support programs, exhibits and activities of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives. We are proud to be a sponsor for this fundraiser!
