Responsive evolution of workspace design due to COVID – 19

Design sensibilities must evolve with the ever-evolving world pandemic around us to incorporate all the safety precautions as directed. A large shift is materiality, circulation spaces, workflows and collaborations will be seen as we create and retrofit safe workspaces. Through this shift, flexibility and adaptability will also play an important role in workspace furniture design. Therefore furniture is an integral element; for instance, private pods will be trending more, and a standing desk or height-adjustable desks will be preferred for meetings. Since corporate workspaces have a large footfall, a larger focus will have to be paid on making wayfinding and movement fluid with minimal physical contact.
