What are the top office design trends in 2021?

Modern office with neutral palette and wood tones


Minimalist office design is the style of choice in many offices to encourage focus and organization. The nature of minimalism is stripped and streamlined to pare down any clutter or potential distractions that might impede focus or productivity.

Biophilic design (also referred to as biophilia or design inspired by nature) takes humans’ inherent attraction to natural elements and channels it into design choices that stimulate well-being and focus. If you’re thinking of bringing nature into your office designs, consider how natural elements stimulate the senses.
