If there’s one thing Kinnarps has learned from over 75 years specialising in workplace interiors, it’s that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for the ideal office. The move towards agile working means the best offices are often designed so that employees can work wherever and however they like. That’s why Kinnarps developed its Next Office® service to help businesses understand how to apply the benefits of agile working within their own workspace.

The Next Office® process begins with a thorough research phase intended to analyse a company’s occupancy rate, work patterns, staff requirements and other important factors that inform the design. This is followed by a collaborative creative process that considers the specific needs of individual employees so that someone working in accounts can have a quiet desk space, while a more creative individual is given space to spread out, and project teams are provided with islands for impromptu meetings. Kinnarps then installs the furniture before returning a few months later to conduct a performance review and make any necessary adjustments.

The thorough and intensely collaborative Next Office® process aims to produce optimised agile workspaces that are versatile and future-proof. The activity-based solutions comprise flexible workstations that facilitate a range of uses and provide distinct ergonomic benefits. The spaces are also simple to rearrange, expand or refurbish, meaning they can easily adapt to changing working scenarios.

The Next Office® process uses data-driven insights and employee participation to pinpoint the correct balance between agile and traditional workspace solutions
