Smart working at home: how to furnish the office space at home.

Due also to the health emergency from corona virus the concept of office work has completely changed. The work of the new millennium is smart and mainly “from home”. The advantage is time management: in order to achieve the required goals or deadlines we can modulate it independently, the risk is that we never disconnect.

Create a cozy environment.

In this new context, the boundaries between work and private life seem increasingly blurred and balancing needs is not always easy. It is advisable to create a small working corner all for us, even if you live in a small apartment, where you can arrange your working day in a harmonious way.

In today’s modern homes, an environment specifically dedicated to smart working, like a real studio, is a bit obsolete. Hence the need to set up a space inside the living room or even in a bedroom, with versatile and very elegant solutions. Let’s see some examples.

Avoid office furniture.

One very important thing: no desks and office chairs or cold materials, which remind us of the rigidity and formality of the workplace. The smart working  corner should be pleasant, welcoming and reflect our personality and tastes. So even a simple footstool could be used as a chair…

A very important element is the lighting.

If your office corner is illuminated by natural light, this is sure to be a great luxury. Sunlight makes everything more relaxing not only for the spirit, but also for the view.

But in the evening or on dark days it is important to have a good source of artificial light at your disposal; for this you will need to choose the most suitable desk lamp.

Finally, don’t forget the comfort!

If, as in this period, you are forced to work from home for many hours, choose ergonomic, enveloping armchairs, perhaps even with a high backrest that allows the spine to remain straight.

If the office corner is used for a short time, just for the time to take a look at the email, socials or quickly arrange some documents, you can bet much more on aesthetics than comfort.

Flexible Home Working Spaces

Flexible home working spaces. There is a growing need to transform some domestic environments into small temporary offices.

The life of all of us is increasingly nomadic, unpredictable, subject to sudden and unexpected changes that lead us to change house more often than once, or to live it differently depending on the periods of existence and the phases of the day. Work contracts are increasingly limited in duration or involve “smartworking” phases: this leads people to work even from home, making it necessary to transform some domestic environments into small temporary offices. In this context, there is also a growing need to create coworking environments, thus saving costs and increasing productivity, sharing and interaction.

coworking spaces

Shared spaces, more and more hybrid. No walls, barriers or other obstacles. Versatile multipurpose tables, monoblock kitchens, comfortable sofas for drinking tea or discussing business. Everything must be flexible, convertible and above all smart!

Bulky furniture is replaced, for example, by mid-room furniture or temporary glass walls, possibly in a transparent finishing. One of the things modernist architecture has taught us is to make places dialogue, whether they are the rooms of a house or the interior with the exterior. Where it is possible, to connect spaces, to knock down walls and let light in, which is the true luxury of today.

The today goal is to move from the partition to the screen. For this reason, the use of screens is back in fashion, but with a different value compared to the privacy function that they had in Liberty contexts of the early ‘900. Today they become real decorative elements. Screens of ultra modern and innovative design, discreet but at the same time almost indispensable for the pleasant visual impact they create.

In this age full of work uncertainties and radical changes, many people rent warehouses or large apartments, making them both offices and houses to live in. The design is therefore minimal, “light” but very functional. The kitchen becomes a dining room, a working station, a canteen and a meeting place for coffee. The living room can be transformed into a meeting room or a place to receive customers, depending on requirements. Everything mixes, everything changes over and over again.
