If you want your business to come across as innovative and forward-thinking, you need to have a space that reflects that. Your office space can be so much more than a place to work. It should be able to boost productivity, inspire people and allow employees to work more efficiently in ways they have never worked before.
Innovative interior design is much like stepping into the unknown. It’s innovative because no one has ever done it before, but this is exactly what your office needs to stand out from the competition.
Here are a few examples of how you can turn your standard office space into an exciting and highly innovative workplace that everyone will love to work in.
1. Experimenting with Materials
Work Design Magazine touches on the significance of experimenting with materials in your space. There are many innovative ways to incorporate unique materials into your office whether it be your doors, lights, walls or furniture. A retro sofa from a second-hand store could look fantastic in your waiting room or perhaps some old building materials could be repurposed to create a brand new office feature. You could even achieve sustainable design when repurposing recycled materials by reducing waste.
Experimenting with materials isn’t just about repurposing the old into something new. It’s also about using a common material in a new way. In this example below from a recent Future Fitouts project, we incorporated decorative wooden panelling across a section of the wall and ceiling to allow this sitting space to stand out from the rest.
This unique way of incorporating wood into the space gives the office an extra stylish element that matches the surrounding decor.
2. Integrated Flexibility & Mobility
Offices these days are no longer stagnant and stationary. Modern offices are fluid and forever changing to foster collaboration, and an office space can be designed specifically to suit this change in office culture.
Collaboration and mobility can be encouraged with spaces designed specifically for collaborative tasks, or with movable cubicles and demountable partitions so the whole office can be re-ordered easily when needed. The flexible interconnected workstation or the office breakout seating designed by Dymitr Malcew Designs are great examples of office furniture that can be created and used to foster a collaborative work environment.
3. One-of-a-Kind Design Features
Creating one-of-a-kind pieces that pop can help to provoke more creativity in the office. From something big and bold such as a transparent glass cylinder meeting room to simple yet effective design features such as dimensional signage across your office walls that creatively shows what your business is all about, one-of-a-kind design features can come in many different shapes and sizes.
A design feature can be as simple as placing colourful geometric wallpaper onto one of your walls or as complex as redesigning a whole room so it looks out of this world. How far you want to take your design will depend on your budget.
A professional interior designer can help you envision a way to add an eye-popping design feature that will suit your budget.
