Today, there exists no single model of work, but rather a hybrid reality – says Martyna Tarnawska, Service Design Lead in the consulting company Socjomania in "Bussiness Insider". What is a hybrid? It is not only remote work, but: – flexibility in the choice of working time and place from which we perform professional duties – she adds.
Modern office design assumes a high flexibility of useable space. There are also ways to adapt existing offices by, for example, changing fittings and furnishings to meet new functions and requirements.
- An interesting challenge for modern offices is working in a rotational system. For example, if a company has 100 employees, it only prepares 80 desks. Nobody has their own desk; they just book one online for a specific time. In addition, there are special soundproof booths, places to chillout, or multimedia corners.
Lockers have also become a regular feature in office spaces, where everyone can safely lock their belongings after a day’s work – says Piotr Jusiński, a partner at Akccept, which for many years has been supplying companies such as LOT or the Warsaw Stock Exchange with office furniture, and one of whose latest projects is the headquarters of the Warta Insurance Company in the Warsaw UNIT office building.
Warta and 1700 Profim chairs
– A chair intended for a hybrid office work system must not only be healthy and ergonomic but must also "defend" itself against the user – says Piotr Jusiński.
For the new Warta offices, we proposed the Violle chair by Profim, because you can trust it. It is durable, aesthetically made and presents itself well, in addition to which it has a pictorial instruction manual and palpable markings to facilitate everyday use – he adds.
Violle is an exceptionally elegant line of Profim chairs, designed by ITO Design studio. It is distinguished by an aluminium backrest frame, which together with the armrests builds a body of interesting geometry.
The incorporated bottom of the seat adds elegance and makes it easier to operate: the user does not stray in search of buttons and levers for adjustment.
