The Tiered Shape of things to come…from Cubicle Name Plate Holders to new Office Stadium Seating

e2164c052f093e56e0b3e72ffb2694b7Heard about the new trend in office design? You probably didn’t think that it involves stadium seating, did you?

That’s exactly what is happening at a handful of tech companies, starting about five years ago in Silicon Valley. An act of defiance? Maybe. School bleachers were originally considered a sort of “counter corporate” snub to traditional cubicle layouts and “stiff boardrooms.” The use of physical space in high tech work campuses has also become a recruitment tool and it seems the nostalgic aspect of bleacher seating has a hook.

As the trend builds steam, so have some imaginative variations in stadium seating. The Malwarebytes office had the foresight to open a “secret” speakeasy-like cantina in stylish fashion BENEATH their stadium seating. California’s Workday HQ got an interesting wrinkle in their design by Form4 Architecture: a huge dry erase coloring book with fish on the wall, encouraging passersby to stop and draw.

There’s more to this tiered shape in the office than just seating. Beyond Silicon Valley, new cubicle designs are also shaking up traditional office floor layouts. And even older style partitions are getting a makeover with Tiered Cubicle Name Plate Holders.

Multi-Tier Name Plate Holders in Black and Silver border options are really gaining notice. These colorful new “People Spotters” come in 2, 3, 4, and 5 different slot variations that rather resemble stadium seating when the inserts are loaded. The colored borders catch the eye and Multi-Tier Cubicle Name Plate Holders are ideal for directional guidance and combination suite identification.

Also, if you are fortunate enough to have an in-office getaway like the Malwarebytes “secret speakeasy” – with or without stadium seating – you might want a Multi-Tier Name Plate Holder to point the way. Then announce your arrival with a brilliant Clear Acrylic Sign Holder!

It was 1966 when the Grinch first aired on TV, showing the world of Whos in Whoville beating their Trum-tookas, dancing with Jing-tinglers, and blowing their Floo-floobers. Now another “Ville” is celebrating in a fashion that’s making quite a splash! Welcome to BuzziVille.

BuzziVille is a unique village…one that’s well-suited to cutting edge offices. A “flexible and modular freestanding system,” BuzziVille serves as a more personal, freely developed kind of community within the office. It’s easy to rearrange and serves as both public and private space…a movable urban workspace that even includes informal meeting rooms.

Functional and fun, BuzziVille is part of the BuzziSpace brand…a group of products geared to improve worker well-being through “human centric design.” Buzzi acoustics, lighting, and furnishings for modern workplaces are gaining serious attention. BuzziWrap Desks, BuzziProp LEDs, BuzziBlinds, the BuzziHub – you get the idea – all innovatively designed with broad appeal for forward-thinking office managers.

The perfect match for cutting edge office décor of the future? The finest name tags in BuzziVille deserve a modern look in Name Plate Holders. New Cubicle Name Plate Holders with colored border options in silver and black especially make a nice accent. These exclusive displays complement today’s upgraded professional look, in BuzziVille and beyond.

Name, title, and department ID inserts also get a pronounced designation in Desk Name Plate Holder displays. There’s nothing like acrylic to complement the overall eye appeal taking root in business centers and campuses.

And that brings us back to BuzziSpace and BuzziVille. A recent expo called Orgatec 2018 showcased products like BuzziBracks, another flexible new modular system in work spaces, and the BuzziHat, an attractive sound absorber that blends well in office surroundings. Pretty cool, right?

Cubicles, Name Plate Holders, and a more Collaborative Office Atmosphere

Untitled designDo you believe that an open floor plan in the office encourages a more collaborative team effort? Tech companies in particular are known for open-plan concepts, largely based on the premise that brilliant young minds will interact and spark even greater ideas.

But a recent Harvard study indicates quite the opposite! According to the research, interaction in wide open spaces actually makes many diligent workers self-conscious and unwilling to disrupt the work flow of others.

That research revolved around two Fortune 500 companies making the switch to open-plan offices. Interactions of 150 employees were measured before and after using a “sociometric badge,” a device that recorded wearer movements, locations, and conversations with colleagues via infrared and sound sensors.

The results? Over 15 days prior to the office redesign, participants averaged about 5.8 hours of face-to-face interaction a day. After switching to an open layout, the same participants’ interaction dropped to only 1.7 hours.

One could argue that maybe TOO MUCH time is spent interacting…i.e., messing around and gossiping. But those numbers are still significant, even if every second is not spent brainstorming. At least the opportunity is there.

If you’re considering ways to make your office more conducive to collaborative thought and creative ideas, one approach to be drawn from this Harvard study indicates a need for the semi-privacy cubicles deliver. An essential requirement for every cubicle is the Name Plate Holder that distinguishes each one.
