Whether you’re trying to tempt workers back to the office, hopeful of turning the heads of new talent or providing a more motivating workplace for employees who never left, tuning in to 2021’s commercial design London trends will help your cause. Here are MPL’s 4 leading themes to think about when you plan you fit out.
1. Resimercial: this new trends combines the traditional aspects of a commercial office with the home comforts of a residential setting. Gen Z and Millennials are most likely to love this look – one where tactile textures, rugs, natural materials and house plants rub shoulders with filing cabinets and photocopiers.
2. Pantone Colour(s) of the Year 2021: if you though grey had had its day, think again. Ultimate Grey (17-5104) is one of two colours of the year nominated by Pantone. The other is Illuminating (13-0647) – a bright, acid yellow. Together they cast a positive and uplifting vibe, underpinned by a practical and ‘rock solid’ base.
3. Vintage wallpaper: people will look to add warmth and comfort where they work and crossing over from home interiors is the fashion for vintage-inspired wallpaper. Art Deco, nouveau-Georgian, floral cameos, avian Chinoiserie and botanical whimsy in bold colours and with gilded highlights are cropping up in office refurbishments in London – even if it’s just in the cloakrooms.
4. Dedicated Zoom rooms: video conferences and calling will continue throughout 2021, especially where staff are working in the office to a rota or where business is national/international. Expect interactive whiteboards, large LCD screens beautifully inset into faux walls, first-class acoustics and stylish surroundings ensuring you never need to green screen with virtual backgrounds again.
