The workplace analysis leads the way

Changed work patterns and new ways of working in a hybrid world place new demands on the workplace. The office should be a value-creating, attractive and sustainable space where people feel good, thrive and have the possibility to perform in the best way.

Our long experience of workplace strategy has shown us that solid pre-work creates success. The key is to map your unique needs and work patterns. This gives you the conditions to achieve the best and most sustainable solution. Well-considered, well-planned work spaces that meet the needs of both the organisation and employees promote everything from well-being and creativity to efficiency and productivity. In other words, a good and sustainable investment. Let Kinnarps help you create the perfect office.



Define the end result

The Next Office® needs analysis lays the foundation for how your office spaces should be designed to support employees and
the organisation the best way possible.



From idea to action

We help you translate the needs analysis results into a design concept, layout and tangible drawing. We go through ergonomics, functions and sustainability.



Introducing the potential

Through our own efficient logistics and delivery system, we deliver and install your interior completely according to drawing. We help you introduce and implement environments, furniture, ergonomics and working methods so that everyone understands the potential. 



Knowing is better than guessing

Based on your needs analysis, you can then continuously follow up on how your office is working and identify whether your needs have changed.

Next Office® workplace analysis

Our Next Office® workplace analysis helps you gather valuable knowledge and data before designing your office. With specially developed tools, our experienced workplace strategists guide your management team in working on the vision, goals and framework for the project. Through workshops, lectures and a web survey, they then help you map needs and work patterns and involve staff in a well thought-out way. We focus on thinking ahead and inspire you to open up to new ideas about how your office can be used to best support your daily activities.

The efforts you need to put in are time, planning, management-led change and employee engagement. The analysis provides you with facts, a solid knowledge base and a qualitative basis for how your office can be designed to best meet your needs.
