Technology Changes Office Design Needs

As technology develops and changes, so do the needs of the typical business. More and more, we find that our smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices are more integral to how we do our jobs, rather than the desk phones and computers of the last decade. This, at least, is the point raised in a recent article from NPR, and in it, another question is raised: Does this shift towards mobile business mean we no longer need an office desk? Simply put, no, it does not. What it does mean, however, is that office furniture designers and vendors have to take into consideration some new options when it comes to traditional office furnishing, and American Design Associates has some insights into what will work best for a modern office setting.

First, consider all of that technology you use on a regular basis. Your desk can be made to accommodate them; increasingly, we are seeing desks equipped for USB ports and with clever ways of disguising or storing wires so that the overall look you are left with is streamlined and organized. The desk itself can be more streamlined as well; when it does not need to hold a clunky desktop computer, your desk can take up less room in your office and allow for other, necessary furnishings to fit in.

Another innovation to consider is desks that are adjustable. Some desks are height adjustable and allow the user to work either while seated or while standing, which can provide workers with a much-needed change of pace throughout the day. Desks with adjustable lengths, too, have found their way into the market and are ideal for group collaboration sessions; expand the desk while working together and contract it when its just back to one person.

The modern office design is sleek, efficient, and innovative. In order to keep up with the fast-paced business world, call American Design Associates today for more information.
