Activity-based working

Today’s cutting-edge companies are now using an office design plan called Activity Based Working. What this means is that an employee can work anywhere in the office that suits his or her current activity.

Flexible Workspace

A new design concept that is gaining traction is what is called the flexible workspace. Flexible workspaces feature desks, tables, and chairs that are easily movable and easily resizable. This is in contrast to the more traditional office plan where the locations of desks, chairs, tables, and other resources are fixed and unchanging.

For example, in a flexible workspace plan, a meeting table can be easily and quickly resized by attaching or detaching modular components of the table. These modular components can be easily moved around because they are on wheels. Desks and workstations can also be moved around easily because they are on wheels. This allows the dynamic creation of new teams and boosts collaboration between workers for short-term and long-term tasks.

Some flexible workspaces also feature unassigned seating arrangements. This means that each employee is not assigned to a specific desk or workstation and can choose any desk or workstation on a given workday. This concept is made by possible by today’s modern trend toward a paperless workplace where nearly all information is digitized by computer.

As such, the modern workplace is looking more and more like a simple desk and chair with only a computer, monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Many companies and organizations are also moving toward storing data on networks and remote file systems instead of local computers. These factors allow for unassigned seating arrangements in the workplace to become more practical and easy to implement.

Bringing nature into the workplace

One of the most powerful and enduring trends now reshaping Saudi arabia to workplace is reconnecting people with nature. This is called biophilic design. Biophilic design is based on the premise that humans have an innate need to connect with nature, and that when this connection is made, it results in better health, concentration, creativity, and work performance. The theory behind biophilic design is that it improves both physical and psychological health. Indeed, biophilic design reduces stress and enhances mood.

Creating a home-like atmosphere

A big trend in office design that is sweeping the world is the concept of a workplace that resembles a home away from home. From bright and comfortable sofas to recreational swings to ping-pong tables to lounge areas, the idea is to make the workplace as relaxing and stress-free as possible.

  • Home-like sofas, armchairs, pod seats, and coffee tables.
  • Lounge areas.
  • Break areas with recreational games.
  • Cafés with free coffee, snacks, and food.
  • Fully stocked bars.
  • Outdoor terraces and balconies.
  • Exercise gym and showers.
  • Bicycle storage.

Hybrid workplace Technology

Introducing flexible work arrangements requires businesses to adjust their physical work environments. It includes reviewing space optimization and changing office layouts to create a workspace matching the needs of a hybrid workforce.

Hybrid workplace technology, like desk bird, plays a major role in helping employees thrive in this new flexible work configuration. For example, it enables them to:

Book a specific desk or meeting room

Assign Spaces

Reserve a parking lot in advance

Plan their hybrid week schedule systems

Find colleagues through interactive floor plan

Collect data & monitor office analytics

Smart-Office Technology

Smart Office Technology support us in our personal lives, so why not use smart office technology to improve and optimize the workplace? Building an intelligent ecosystem helps you enhance employee experience, foster efficiency, boost productivity, lower costs, and reduce carbon impact. It can integrate various resources such as sensors, automated processes, IoT devices, and AI (Artificial Intelligence) solutions.

  • Smart screens: upgrade the videoconferencing experience.
  • AI tools: stop wasting your time on repetitive and low-value tasks.
  • Smart furniture: enhance your employee experience and well-being.
  • Occupancy sensors: make data-based decisions.
  • Video monitoring devices: keep the workplace safe and secure.
  • Smart IoT security devices: create a safe and secure work environment.
  • Proactive maintenance systems: opt for the “better safe than sorry” approach.
  • Smart lighting solutions: make your electricity bill lighter.
  • Virtual reality devices: step up the online meeting game.
  • Automated and interconnected technology: control your workspace smartly

Industrial Office Design

A recent modern trend that cannot be ignored is the industrial office design. This trend became popular starting in the late 2000s and remains popular today. The industrial office design is a purely aesthetic style of design that is intentionally unsophisticated: It is rustic, simple, and unrefined.

  • Exposed ceiling air ducts.
  • Exposed ceiling pipes.
  • Exposed ceiling beams.
  • High ceilings.
  • Exposed brick walls along the outside of the office space.
  • Lack of interior walls resulting in more open space.
  • Very large windows
  • Natural wood instead of treated wood.
  • Concrete floors instead of wood or carpeted floors.
  • Overhanging light fixtures with exposed light bulbs.

Ergonomics Workstations

These days, sitting is the new smoking. Sitting at your desk for long periods of time can have negative effects on your health. To address this issue, today’s modern office workplaces are incorporating the following new technologies into their workstations.

  • Ergonomic Chairs: These are office chairs that have adjustable support for your lower back, which is also called lumbar support. Their seat height should also be adjustable so that the person. sitting on the chair has both feet planted firmly on the ground. The height of the armrests should also be adjustable.
  • Height Adjustable Desks: Ideally you would want the height of the desk to be adjustable for people of different body sizes. Some people also like to alternate between sitting and standing while they work.
  • Sit/Stand Desk Risers: Also called “standing desks”, these are height-adjustable mechanical platforms that sit on top of the desk on which is placed your monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
  • Exercise Ball Chairs: These are large plastic balls inflated with air that can be used instead of a chair. As exercise, the person sitting on the ball can bounce up and down on the ball. Sitting on the ball also forces you to exercise the muscles in your body that are required to maintain balance on the ball.

Glass walls and doors

Glass walls and doors in the office workplace have been trending for years now, and they are an important part of modern and cutting-edge office interior design.

There are two main benefits of having glass walls and doors in the workplace:

  • Natural Light: Glass walls and doors allow abundant sunlight and daylight to spread through the workplace. This is believed to be healthier for you than artificial light.
  • Natural Light: Glass walls and doors promote more transparency in the workplace. People can see what others are doing and thus become better team players. Glass walls and doors reduce the feeling of being isolated from the rest of the team.

Glass walls are also thinner than regular walls. This means that glass walls create slightly more available space and square footage than regular walls. Another practical advantage of glass walls is that they are easier and cheaper to install than regular walls.

Individual Workstations

These dedicated desks offer employees a personal space for focused work. Partitions or dividers can provide privacy, while adjustable furniture promotes ergonomic comfort. Natural light and access to power outlets are crucial.

Collaboration Zones

Brainstorming sessions, team meetings, and impromptu discussions flourish in collaborative zones. Think open floor plans with comfortable seating arrangements, whiteboards or interactive displays, and easily accessible technology.

Quiet Rooms

For concentration-intensive tasks or private calls, quiet rooms offer a refuge from office noise. Soundproofing materials, comfortable seating, and individual lighting controls create an ideal environment for focused work.

Social Lounges

Fostering a sense of community and casual interaction, social lounges are equipped with comfortable seating, coffee tables, and potentially even games or recreational areas. This space encourages informal conversation and team bonding.

Production Floors

The heart of many industrial operations, production floors demand a focus on safety and efficiency. Clear pathways, designated storage areas, and ample task lighting are essential. Consider using durable, easy-to-clean materials for walls and flooring.

Control Rooms

Housing critical monitoring equipment and personnel, control rooms require a clutter-free environment with optimal visibility. Ergonomic seating, adjustable workstations, and strategically placed monitors ensure operators can work comfortably and effectively.


Efficient storage is paramount in warehouses. High bay shelves maximize vertical space, while clear aisle markings and designated traffic lanes ensure smooth operation. Consider natural light when possible, supplemented by bright overhead lighting in key areas.

Break Rooms

Providing a comfortable space for employees to rest and recharge is vital. Industrial break rooms can be designed with a balance of functionality and relaxation. Opt for durable furniture, easy-to-maintain flooring, and perhaps a splash of color or nature-inspired elements to create a welcoming atmosphere.

Maintenance Areas

Dedicated areas for equipment maintenance and repair require good ventilation, proper lighting, and a readily accessible supply of tools and materials. Consider a designated wash-down area for cleaning equipment, with a focus on proper drainage and slip-resistant flooring.

Safety First

Always prioritize safety regulations and best practices when designing industrial workspaces. This includes proper signage, fire safety measures, and designated areas for hazardous materials.

Durability is Key

Industrial environments can be tough on furniture and finishes. Opt for materials that can withstand wear and tear, with a focus on easy maintenance.

Natural Light, When Possible

While some industrial spaces have limited access to natural light, consider incorporating it wherever possible. This can improve employee well-being and alertness.
