Back in the 1950’s, offices across Australia (and the world) looked very different to how they do today. The sleek, modern glass and aluminium office partitions you see in modern workplaces were nowhere to be seen. Then, cubicles and closed-off corridors were the norm as most bosses liked to give their employees their own space to work. Unless of course you were a ‘lowly’ member of the typing pool or a factory worker, which meant you’d be out in the open amongst the masses. Things quickly changed when a few German companies decided that a more ‘open’ office would improve communication. This resulted in a wave of American (and Australian) companies adopting the trend by incorporating glass and aluminium office partitions – expanding out their workspaces to allow employees to be more creative, collaborative and communicative.
Come 2016, and open plan offices are everywhere. At Innovative AG, we pride ourselves on being able to help you come up with a tailored office partition solution for your business. With that, here’s three reasons to go open plan in your office:
Knocking down your solid white walls and replacing them with stylish glass and aluminium office partitions is a great way to increase the creativity and innovation of your work space. Studies have proven that open plan offices are great for brainstorming and creative work, allowing each person to feed off others and expand on the collaborations of their coworkers.
In addition to being create for collaboration and creativity, open plan offices can also facilitate close-quarter, more intimate communication. Glass partitions are effective at blocking out sound, meaning employees can have meetings or private conversations without disturbing or being overheard outside.
The modern, streamlined look of aluminium and glass office partitions is currently very much in vogue. Office partitions from Innovative AG can give your workspace a much more spacious, flowing vibe that’s conducive to a healthy work environment. Glass is one of the most cost effective ways to achieve the open plan look. And at Innovative AG, we can tailor your workspace with a tinted design in order to bring bright, airy color to your space. We can also help elevate your brand by imprinting a logo onto glass partitions near your foyer or entrance. Our aluminium frames provide a modern, clean contrast to the glass while also providing a solidity that will keep your building’s interior looking beautiful for many years to come.
