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.

Kitchen trends 2021: the typical barstool is enjoying new success in private homes.

Known since time immemorial as the typical stool used for furnishing bars, today stools are becoming part of the domestic environment, positioned next to the more traditional dining room chairs. If in bars the stool has the function of a temporary seat for a quick drink, in the home, around a kitchen counter, it takes on a function of hospitality and conviviality.

The most typical example is in fact the kitchen stool, which alongside islands and peninsulas, or simply around the table, is perfectly suited to the increasingly common need for quick lunches and snacks.

This type of seating is available in a wide range of models: backless, without armrests, with a wooden or upholstered backrest and with armrests.

Whether simple, minimalist, colourful, covered in fabric or leather, stools are to all intents and purposes the new ‘home’ design element thanks to their versatility and modern style.

Characterised not only by the “unusual” height of the legs, these seats offer special attention to materials. For a stool to sit on for a long time, it is advisable to choose a soft upholstered and enveloping seat and backrest. It is perfect to place in the home around the kitchen peninsula, to host friends for an aperitif, but at the same time it is a very elegant seat at the counter of a cocktail bar.

If you are looking for a more minimalist or rustic style, it is better to opt for stools with metal legs or made entirely of wood.

Design is a creative process that finds inspiration in many fields. Sometimes, artistic influences from the past are brought back to the modern world. Some others are at the vanguard of other disciplines.

All this process has given rise to various collections consisting of furniture with artistic shapes and finishes without losing the functionality and comfort necessary to be used every day. A clear example is the Museo collection by Spanish company Sancal that thanks to the collaboration with various designers has created furniture that could be exhibited in a museum and at the same time be used in your home.

The main feature of these collections is the technical complexity of the shapes, a real exercise in abstraction and engineering to support comfort, without sacrificing strength and stability.

The design is minimal and essential but not too much; the house will not look bare and “sad” but instead, thanks to the wide range of coatings specially designed, it will be overall harmonious and extremely elegant.
