Technology is changing everything. How we gather information, how we communicate, not to mention our mobility. These days employees are no longer confined to their desks to get a job done. How does your current office solution manage these new working conditions?
Answer emails? Hold creative stand-ups? Meet with clients? Exercise? Travel? Organise workshops? Answer phone calls? Read? Write? Take coffee breaks? Work remotely? Who needs what and where to make their working life most pleasant and efficient?
Take a look around the office. Do the different space reflect that actions of your co-workers? Is their room to improve and optimise, to make your workplace that much better?
Making the most out of your floor space must also be viewed from an economic standpoint. Empty desks = wasted money, as well as draining creative energy. Transforming wasted spaces into vibrant places will save you money and inject new life into everyone involved.
Based on the answers to your questions, do you have a personal plan for improving your office? With our 75 years’ experience in this field, we are here to help you put your very best foot forward.
Choosing a new working environment is more than an interior design project, it is a time of transformation. Like all processes, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for the ideal office. The best solution for you is a unique one. That includes analysing the current physical space, leadership, organisation and digital environment. It also means getting everyone on board and considering the needs of the company, the department, the group and the individual. Our unique five-step process enables us to design the optimal working environment for you and no one else.
Welcome to your Next Office.
Next Office’s activity based workspaces never need to be rebuilt or renovated. Simply refurbish, and a new space is yours. Suddenly expanding or downsizing employee numbers is painless, and office size has little impact on changing working scenarios.
A workspace designed to encourage spontaneous meetings allows creativity to flourish. Where traditional offices rely on fixed interactions, our Next Office solution supports an open, flexible environment.
Flexible workstations that adapt to a variety of activities provide a wide range of ergonomic advantages. When people’s bodies feel better, a positive impact is witnessed in both the company culture and business results.
Scientific studies have proven that design has more impact on us than previously thought. A clear connection exists between enjoying your surroundings and doing effective work. Investing in inspiring design supports company pride and attracts new talent.
Results & strategy
interior design solution
The first step is to inform, inspire and motivate to get everyone involved. We hold seminars, for instance on how working life is changing (present our trend reports), why this is the case, and how this will affect the individual and the company. You are also welcome to visit our showrooms for further inspiration.
First we give a workshop. Then follow analyses by means of various tools, which indicate occupancy rate, work patterns and your needs and wishes. The results are summarised in a report on which the design of your workplace will be based.
On the basis of the review, we now know your occupancy rate, work patterns, staff requirements and wishes, and level of focus. We present the results to you and interpret them jointly with you. From the results we create a vision which forms the basis for the next step. Then we discuss, together with you and your team, how you want to design your new workplace.
We propose an interior design solution that suits your needs and business. Any alterations to the proposal are carried out, and when you are fully satisfied you can place an order for your new workplace.
We aim to always use our own delivery fitters to deliver and install your new working environment. We give you service based on experience and care plus sustainably focused transportation, which means you avoid having to deal with waste packaging. Instead of single-use packaging, we use blankets to wrap and protect the majority of our products. We re-use these blankets over and over again.
When your new office has been up and running for a
minimum of six months we make a post-analysis,
investigating and evaluating the results in comparison
to your vision and objectives. We also compare existing
data to the ones from your former office.

With new technology making it possible to work anywhere, our work environments are changing fast. An office can be at work or at home, in a café or in a hotel lounge. Here at Kinnarps we specialise in work environments and interior design solutions for the offices of the future. When you choose an office design solution from us, you can rest assured that you will get an office that has been designed with the needs of you and your organisation in mind - and that will continue to meet your needs for many years to come.
Our many years of experience in the field of work environments have taught us that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. Effective offices are designed with the client's individual needs in mind and meet your own particular requirements in terms of layout, the way you work and interior design. If designed correctly, the work environment will naturally foster wellbeing, creativity and productivity. When creating work environments for our clients, we use our concept called Next Office. Next Office is a process that looks at the workplace as a whole: organisation, physical environment and digital technology. The aim is for employees to feel involved and engaged in the entire process, on their journey to their new office.
We don't supply off-the-peg solutions, so the office that we deliver may include a combination of many different ideas - everything from an open-plan office to an activity-based office and personal cubicles. But the result is always a flexible work environment that provides scope for both the individual and organisation to grow, develop and thrive. Since the office is designed specifically for your business, the work environment will be more productive and processes will be more effective. Kinnarps' work environments are creative and positive - and encourage collaboration within and between different departments and functions. We create solutions tailored to the team and the individual that encourage and support different personalities and different ways of working. The ability to choose a work setting that suits you makes for a stress-free environment, and ergonomic office furniture reduces the risk of work-related injuries. This type of work environment, which puts employees at the centre, attracts the best people, and also reflects the business' ethos and brand. And the versatile, flexible office space also enables you to optimise your use of space and avoid unnecessary expense. We take a holistic approach to the work environments of the future that takes into account the individual, the organisation, society and the environment.
The process of developing new work environments is always based on Kinnarps' own sustainability initiative, The Better Effect, which ensures that you always make an active, sustainable choice - for the future.
