Design Trends For Post Covid Workspaces – Screens

It is essential to define what your workplace needs in the space given before designing. However, once you have completed the define step, it is all about making it happen.

Employee wellbeing, productivity and high retention of employees are what drives a business’s vision. There are many ways of achieving this, but an office space that both employees and employers love is key.

With the way the world is currently operating, Covid-19 remains an essential factor in day-to-day life. Therefore, installing screens has never been hotter.

Installing screens into your new office fit-out as a precaution does not have to be boring. As illustrated in the design below, they can be engaging, on-brand and inventive rather than a series of barriers between desks. The image below displays recent client Hermes, who wanted to capture their branding, a flying parcel, to their felt screen.

In an open-plan office, privacy can be non-existent with only directors or head of departments adopting the perk. The lack of walls in an office can increase the noise level, potentially causing distraction and frustration to some employees. Installing screens in your office space helps cancel out noise and create a secluded area for those who wish to work quietly in an open-plan space.

Screens are made as mobile and free-standing structures, easy to section off for meetings, training days and other functions. The beauty behind the portable design allows flexibility when employees want to hold impromptus discussions and can easily be managed and moved.

If you wanted a more permanent fitting, screens can be specially made to fit bespoke desks and note the low- and high-level desking. Desired fabrics, colours and finishes can help provide permanent screens to be more appealing when physical acoustic barriers are implemented. Our interior designers can help you decide the most suitable design to fit your office space when refurbishing or refitting.

If your feeling adventurous with acoustic office screens, you can even incorporate them into desk pods. Desk pods are ideal for employees who want a little more privacy and wants to increase concentration. The acoustic office screens and desk pods are suitable for any employee, and they also create interest in a room with its inward-looking design. The pods can be easily moved around the office for fluid space options subject to power/data points creating a scheduled area for those who wish to work quietly in an open space.
