A Fresh Take On Office Design

Office solutions aren’t traditionally known for being the most scintillating aspect of interior architecture. But the importance of creating flexible, innovative spaces for the 9-5 is crucial, given the proportion of our day we spend at work.

Given the need for innovation on this matter, who better to approach the topic than designers who aren’t yet part of office culture themselves? The question of how to optimize office space was taken on by a group of first year MA students from Lund University’s School of Industrial Design. Supervised by Rolf Hay, co-founder of HAY, the results of their concepts take the form of ‘In Our Office‘, a collection of furniture and design items created to sweeten the workday with opportunities for enhanced concentration, rest and play. From a sleeping bench and shades to curtains and multi-purpose desks. For further details about the project, take a look at its microsite.
