“The Future Office” is once again the theme of Hall 3.0 at Paperworld Frankfurt 2019. Over these past years, architects and facility managers are witnessing a change in the work culture and employees want to be part of a workplace where they feel comfortable and inspired.

The culture of work has changed. And now it’s all about being collaborative, flexible and adaptive. And productivity and motivation in the workplace requires comfortable and inspirational workspaces.

The landscape of the workplace is changing more than ever. For ages office spaces meant no more than lonely cubicle. Then, recently, walls have fallen down and a new era arrived: the open- plan collaborative and versatile office.

We are all design lovers! But great design – exceptional and intelligent – is not a simple neither an objective concept, so defining it clearly, as well as explaining the importance of the application of its principles, it is genuinely complex.

If you have been following our blog or our brand, you already know that ARCHYI. team is inspired by nature and moved by passion. The passion for communication, for creating unique solutions that help to improve environments, particularly work environments, that motivate and potentiate collaboration, communication, creativity, and focus.

You have probably already heard or read about “Biophilia”, since it is a concept first popularized by the American biologist, researcher, theorist, naturalist and author, Edward O. Wilson in 1984. Standing for the innate relationship between humans and nature, and concerns the need we have to be continually connected to nature, the interest in biophilia has grown substantially over the last decades, mostly due to the rapid urbanization of the modern world. We started to realize our cities and suburbs have been designed in a way that alienates us from nature and degrades the environment.

Health and wellbeing are essential concerns when thinking, or rethinking workspaces. The success of any workplace – its work methods and processes- depends on just how well prepared for assuring employees safety, comfort and wellness they are. Because that will definitely increase employees’ engagement and productivity.
