    Nowadays, many companies are looking for resting places in their offices, as they have realized that clearing the minds of their employees in an atmosphere of relaxation generates the best ideas, making work performance more effective.

     

    This is why lounge areas have emerged in offices, providing employees with a break from the daily routine to free their minds, foster team spirit, and manage stress.

     

    Often, having a different perspective or being in a less formal environment can help the creative process and encourage an exchange of ideas.

     

    If anything has become clear in recent times, it is that communication and personal relationships in the workplace are key to the well-being of workers and the optimal functioning of companies. 

     

    What is the right furniture for your company's lounge area?

    Office decoration: what you should know about?
    by Gebesa | 29 November 2022 |   Office Furniture   Workplace Design   office decoration

    Decorating an office is a very important task since it is where people spend many hours working,  so having an organized and beautiful space is key.

    In addition, it has been proven that decoration has a direct influence on moods. With good decoration and organization, you can increase productivity and reduce stress.

     

    office-decor

     

    Here are some factors to take into account when decorating your office.

     

    • Brightness 

     

    Offices should be bright spaces, always aiming for natural light. Working with natural light reduces visual fatigue, increases productivity, and economically, saves energy.

     

    ilumination-in-offices

     

    It is essential to enhance and optimize the natural light you have: 

     

    • Try to have workstations near large windows that allow natural light to enter.
    • Paint the walls in light tones so that the light bounces off them.
    • Crystal walls allow the entrance of light and bring modernity to the space. 



    • Practicality 

     

    Keeping it simple and practical is essential for a work environment, this way you will avoid overloading the environment and creating unnecessary distractions. 

     

    It is better that the office furniture we use is simple and functional, and do not forget to compliment the space with accessories such as a waste basket, paper tray and bookshelf  (link), or other storage space



    • Comfort

     

    Office furniture can be decorative, but the most important thing is that it is functional and comfortable.

     

    We spend many hours in the office, most of them sitting, therefore the chair must be comfortable and provide support to maintain a good posture. 

     

    comfort-cubicle-offices

     

    The desk should be spacious for comforts, like the pedestal-supported desk that also provides storage, helping to maintain organization and order. 



    • Inspiration 

     

    In the office, we should also think about motivating employees and making the environment more pleasant for everyone in the office. 

     

    • If there is a quote that you find inspiring, place it somewhere prominent. 

     

    • Following the line of the previous one: A presentation board, so that the workers themselves can leave a nice message.

     

    • Adding some small plants in your office can be an excellent way to create a comfortable, natural, and pleasant environment.

    All about office cubicles
    by Gebesa | 18 November 2022 |   Office Furniture   Workplace Design   open office   cubicles

    What is a cubicle? 

    A cubicle is a small, compact space, used in an office where there is limited office space. A cubicle provides an employee with a personal workspace to complete work tasks.

     

    What-is-a-cubicle

     

    How to equip a work cubicle?

    There are basic elements with which to equip a workstation. In reality, they are not so different from other office facilities, since the tasks to be performed in the space are very similar. 

     

     

    work-office-cubicle

     

    The main elements are the desk and the chair. It is important that they have the right height to work comfortably, and with the necessary space to develop the tasks in an optimal way. 

    Another essential element is the storage space, to keep documentation, paperwork, etc. at hand. The gebesa modular systems have integrated drawers, offering a good solution.

     

    compact-office-cubicle

     

    In addition, office cubicles must have facilities for the equipment used in them, as well as: power outlets, voice, and data output, and wireless or wired connections. 

     

    Why are cubicles recommended for office configurations?

    Having office cubicles provides a trusting environment that encourages individual responsibilities. 

     While we tend to be quite social, we sometimes maintain a sense of privacy.  Cubicles with panels allow you to protect your personal space and reduce distractions in the work area.

     

    Cubicles have also become a popular alternative to quickly create a secure space without the need for major installations. 

     

    Office cubicles  are the perfect solution for a company that runs its operations in one large room, so they can use cubicles to define employee areas and tasks.

    The best office room colors
    by Gebesa | 21 September 2022 |   Office Furniture   Workplace Design   office design trends   office decoration   open office

    Colors affect the mood and concentration of workers.

    Therefore, when painting your office you should pay attention to this; choose those colors that best suit the dimensions of your workspace, the type of activity performed, and the corporate image of your brand and combine them harmoniously and in the right proportions to create a functional environment that invites concentration and is liked by workers and customers.

     

    These are 8 colors to take into account when decorating your office: 


    White: is the most popular color for any workspace. It never goes out of style and brings brightness. White is the safe bet when in doubt, and is one of the perfect colors for the office if it is a small space.

          White-office-room

     

    Gray: This color is trendy, and brings elegance and modernity. It is perfect for an office with new technologies or for meeting rooms.

     

    Orange: This color projects strength, determination, energy, and enthusiasm.

    This color is especially suitable for collaborative environments.

    Orange-office-example

     

    Red: The use of this color is complicated, but when used well it can project determination, prosperity, and power.

    To use this color correctly, you should administer it in small doses when decorating your office.

    Use this color only in areas of relaxation or collaborative environments where extra effusiveness is needed because it is a color that over-stimulates many people.

    Red-details-office-room

     

    Yellow: Related to ingenuity, creativity, science, and understanding. 

    In its most pastel shade, this color can be used without any problem. In its most saturated and bright tonality, it should be used in small proportions and certain spaces (like red), since it is associated with a warning.

    Yellow-office-room

     

    Green: Is a color that projects optimism, serenity, and harmony.

    Its use is recommended in office spaces, such as the meeting room, where tranquility needs to be promoted.

    Green-details-office-room

     

    Blue: The color of serenity, introspection, and concentration.

    The color blue fosters a calm and quiet environment in which workers can concentrate to the maximum and obtain the highest productivity.

     

    Purple: This color reflects luxury, wisdom, and experience.

    It conveys a sense of calm, tranquility, and peacefulness. This color should be used in luminous variants since, in the case of darker purple, it can transmit a feeling of sadness.

    purple-office-room

     

    Choosing the right colors when decorating an office is very important, as it will not only affect the aesthetics, but also the comfort and performance of workers.

    What is coworking?
    by Gebesa | 28 July 2022 |   Workplace Design   office design   small offices

    Coworking is a way of working that allows independent professionals to share the same workspace, both physical and virtual, to develop their professional projects independently, while promoting joint projects.

     

    Coworking is the perfect space to collaborate 

    The difference between having a coworking space and being in a company is that there are no specific departments but you are surrounded by professionals from different areas with skills, abilities, and contact networks, which will help the growth of opportunities and future collaborations. 




        coworking-what-it-is



    Advantages of coworking 

     

    • Be part of a community.

    Sharing a working space will allow you to interact with other entrepreneurs who are exposed to the same challenges as you. This will make you feel more supported. 

     

    • Reduce costs for your business. 

    Having your workplace in a coworking space represents an economic advantage over doing it in traditional offices. You will be able to have the same benefits at a much lower price

     

    • Improve your productivity.

    Working within a community brings us new ideas, inspires us, and makes us more creative. All this contributes to greater personal well-being, which in turn, means higher performance.



        coworking-workspace







    • You have a fully equipped office.

    When you rent your own office, you have to invest in its equipment and design. In coworking centers, you have additional materials or services, such as communication technologies, reception, or mailboxes, among others.

     

    • Effective networking

    Having professionals with different skills and specialties close by, within a positive collaborative environment, facilitates the creation of connections. You can share ideas and concerns with them. But also projects. Moreover, it is possible that with these alliances and making your work known, you can reach new clients, partners, or investors, and you can expand much faster.



    How to create a coworking space? 

     

    In the first place, you should know the project's target audience. What kind of professionals and entrepreneurs could use that space. And be aware of the labor, creative, and social needs of those who will use the space.

     

    Start workstations are an excellent choice for coworking spaces because they have a modern design, screens to provide privacy when needed, multifunctional pedestals to store documents and a large surface to work on. 

     

    Ascend line integrates height adjustability, electrification, data and more options to customize work stations according to space and work needs. 

     

    Think about spaces that allow users to connect or an area where to organize a presentation in case of need. It is also necessary to have an area that favors concentration and privacy at specific times.

     

     

         coworking-area
