Office Interior Design, Made For Your Way of Working
The brilliance of working with the Bizquip Interiors team is that we can eliminate some of the thinking for you. We will answer questions before they are asked and will provide a varied range of manufacturers, each of whom excel in different areas of design and functionality – creating a solution unique to you.
Without stating the obvious, the key foundations of your successful project include functionality, brand identity, creativity and uniqueness, budget and schedule but will also extend to ergonomics, environmental requirements and accessibility.
Today we will touch on some of these areas to help you get your thought process in shape.
Of all the elements and stages in your project, we would identify the functional planning of your space as an absolute priority. Well-designed furnishings and stylish décor can enhance any space and will look fantastic, but if it doesn’t meet your functional requirements, it has failed you. By working collaboratively with you, we will fully understand the ins and outs of your business, your employees and the tools of their trade and what they require to work seamlessly and comfortably.
In this initial process, we will really dig deep in our research with you. By understanding how your team work, we can then identify what is needed in terms of private spaces, meeting rooms, walls, dividers, client space – this, in turn, will enable us to develop a plan using furniture and accessories that are designed with your specific requirements in mind.
Working environments are fast-changing and evolving and are very focussed on providing a work environment that is productive, comfortable and encourages positive interaction. In recent times there has been a strong shift towards open, collaborative workspaces where team members can work together in an organic and fluid way. This open way of working doesn’t suit all personalities and for that reason, it is vital to consider incorporating more functional, traditional workspaces within the design, so that individuals can step away for the busy environment and comfortably change the situation and remove any distractions.
Furniture designers are responding to these changes in the working environment and more and more we are seeing that our manufacturers are offering incredible designs and innovation to back this trend which are becoming the norm.
As your wardrobe is an expression of you, your office design is an expression of your business; your brand. A clear brand message should radiate through everything you do, how you are displayed and how you are perceived. Not only does it distinguish you from your competitors, it also builds trust and loyalty among your clients and your team, who will strongly believe in your brand message.
Expertly designed interiors cooperate in strengthening your brand and when carefully considered, they are a clear indication of the personality of your business and the connection between the two must be strong.
Nobody puts it better than Humanscale, the world leader in ergonomics and one of our key furniture manufacturers.
“Ergonomics is about designing for people and is the science of fitting a workplace to the user”
Consideration needs to be given to every aspect of the workplace and making it fit your team. That includes the angle of your computer monitor, or the height of your desk. Whether your eyes are strained by the end of the day or if your wrists hurt from typing. A sound understanding of ergonomics can prevent most workplace injuries and rapidly changing technology in the workplace has greatly increased the need for ergonomics. Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting all need to be assessed when creating a workspace.
A balance between sitting and standing needs to be achieved removing the previous sedentary structure of the workplace. You need to consider furniture that is intrinsically ergonomic, intuitive and adjusts to the user.
