One of the trends in interior design that arrived several years ago to stay is to furnish offices and offices with modular furniture.
This solution that began as a way to optimize spaces has matured over time to cover another type of needs shared by modern offices: the creation of collaborative workspaces, the versatility of management offices, the improvement in solutions storage, etc.
General advantages of modular design
Furniture for home and office, computer devices, hotels and hospitals, vehicles … In our daily lives, we are surrounded by solutions based on modular design. Why? Let’s see some of its main advantages:
– Increase in standardization, which means a direct saving of production time and, also, of costs.
– Improvement of personalization (customization) and, thus, of the final customer’s experience with the product.
– Increase in the possibilities of reuse and recycling.
Advantages of modular office furniture
Regarding the specific advantages of using modular furniture in a workplace, we will highlight the following:
Real space optimization:
Modular office furniture takes advantage of and optimizes both too small spaces and larger rooms that sometimes need to be divided into different environments. A good example is found in a basic piece of furniture in any office: the meeting table. Modular or composite meeting tables that, as their own name indicates, are formed through modules that can be placed together or separately depending on the number of people attending the meeting.
Another excellent example of how office furniture optimizes the space available in the office can be found in the auxiliary storage furniture. Although every day we work more on screen and less on paper, it is inevitable not to have to archive memories, plans, projects, publicity material, etc. Due to its design characteristics, auxiliary storage furniture by modules can occupy those dead corners, corners or attics that exist in all offices.
Furniture that adapts to people
The trend “Design Thinking” has reached the sector of offices and offices to stay for a long time. Creating furniture that adapts to people, and not the other way around, is one of the challenges of great interior designers and modular furniture adapts like a glove to this important requirement of modern, productive and functional offices. Modular sofas that can be joined to work as a team or separate to rest a few minutes in private, desks like the secretary that can be placed in a circle for collaborative work or separated for individual work, etc.
Last, but not least, when choosing the perfect furniture for our office we have to bear in mind the changes that our organization can undergo: employee mobility, teleworking, the need to carry out collaborative work, increase or reduction of the template … As it can be assembled and disassembled to measure, the modular furniture adapts to the number of people who work in the office in each department or work season. This advantage is an important saving for companies because if, for example, the staff grows it will not be necessary to acquire new complete furniture, but more modules that complete those that we already have.
Versatility, possibility of growth, savings through standardization, personalization, optimization of spaces, improvement in the productivity of your employees … As you see, choosing modular furniture for your workplace has important advantages.
