The Cecil Nurse team, has for many years now, been attending the Orgatec trade exhibition and after this year’s event, we are certain that the way we work and live has changed drastically. Based on new trends, working wherever and with whomever, and in conditions of maximum comfort, has become of paramount importance.
So, why do we go to Orgatec every second year? In a word: to experience something new! Walking through the halls of this German office furniture show means first and foremost understanding what people want and expect from the workplace through trends that are so obvious, they are impossible to ignore. We saw furniture that can give life to different work environments, as well as designs that can coexist with traditional office furniture concepts, but that can also assume a specific role on their own.
What type of environment will the work culture of the future need? The buzzwords are still collaboration and creativity. With a host of innovative sitting and standing configurations on display at the fair, it’s not only offices that will benefit from these new furniture concepts. As work continues to move into airports, cafes, hotel and beyond, many cosy pods and booths are inviting potential employees to ‘plug in’ and ‘get creative’ all over the place.
