When we talk about the dining room or home office, the ideas all lead to a place for meeting and conviviality or for concentration and silence. In environments where space is often limited and the office is located in a small, uncomfortable and non-functional corner, architects and interior designers recommend using the dining room as an office and therefore opting for versatile, multi-functional tables.

If you have the possibility of creating a small office space in your bedroom or attic, we recommend the Nudo desk, that, with its Scandinavian and minimalist design can also be used as a console or even simply as a decorative element.

The Office Space in 2021

the office space in 2021

The office space in 2021: smart working and evolution in the workplace, there are many ways of designing it.

Smart working is generally viewed negatively because it precludes contact with other colleagues, the exchange of ideas and opinions, the chance to meet new people and engage with them and, in a broader sense, forces the worker to shut himself in and leave the world outside.

Because of COVID-19 this condition is necessary but experts claim that you will return to work in the office, in a different, smoother, more versatile and more effective way. Let’s find out how!

There is a need to redesign the paradigms of the spatial organisation of offices; we can no longer think of the office as a battery of computers and desks all alike. The office must become an inspirational model for small communities. A place for sharing and motivation.

If it is true that the ‘traditional’ office will not disappear completely, it is also true that smart working from home will not disappear. There will be a real fusion between these two solutions. The smart worker will have to be able to choose how to work and where to work. There will be fewer offices. More identity-based. More open. Specialised. Places to go when needed, not necessarily at the same time every day.

Obviously, much more will have to be done: we will have to work on materials that can be sanitised, on laminates that are easy to clean with the right reagents, on fabrics that are easy to sanitise. It will be indispensable to facilitate the movement of furniture and its spacing in space.

The trend for the year 2021 is that in the office, whether at home or in the company offices, the window will increasingly be the most important and focal point. No longer just as a threshold separating inside from outside, but as an opening to the world.

Smart Working at Home

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

sancal nudo desk 1

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.

The Smart Evolution of Common Areas Furnishing

The Smart Evolution of Common Areas Furnishing: when the world of hospitality and the workplace converge, new types of furniture can be created.

When the world of hospitality and the workplace converge, new types of furniture can be created: modular armchairs and sofas that welcome, protect, define territories of privacy or create sets for communities.
They have always been defined as furniture for in-between areas, but their function is evolving. And the high backrest has become a must have!

Third spaces are becoming first spaces. Indeed the armchairs with high backrest or with ears are countless, despite this there are many new shapes.

The novelty is above all in the approach and the new way of using armchairs and sofas. Previously it was furniture for in-between areas or “between desks”; now they seem to replace desks.

Indeed the use of the sofa as a place to work with your laptop is no longer just a prerogative of the Millennials.

It’s important to bring ergonomics to the in-between areas.
The solution to work comfortably is to equip sofas and armchairs with accessories and integrated technological equipment that can transform the armchairs into real workstations. For example, small worktops, also height adjustable and rotating, armrests, electrical and USB sockets.

Therefore the quantity and quality of the accessories and the modularity are decisive elements. As well as the ease of reconfiguration and portability.

Padded, quilted, quilted, pleated and with evident stitching enhance the tactile qualities of the high-performance upholstery fabrics, selected with great care, and surprising colour combinations. Even left visible structures sometimes become a decorative element.
