“Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day…”
—Peter Gibbons, Office Space
If you remember a little movie called “Office Space,” you remember the hated and impersonal cubicle. Drab and ubiquitous, unless you were an executive, your office space was within the confines of a lifeless cubicle, and chances are you relate to Peter Gibbons.
Times have changed in more ways than one. As for office design and workplace furniture, the cubicle is back, and with its sleek, modern look and exceptional functionality, you’ll never compare it to anything that reminds you of TPS reports, red staplers, or jammed printers.
Why Cubicles Now?
Because of the news that vaccines will be available sooner than we anticipated, we can expect to open office doors soon. Safely managing the workplace is imperative and a priority for everyone. Office cubicles keep employees safely distanced with privacy and cleanable surfaces, qualities that will mirror the advantages of working from home (WFH).
Forward-thinking Commercial Real Estate Managers may opt for hotdesking, coworking, or shared space solutions for the post-Covid workplace. Innovative office cubicles make excellent use of various floorplans and solve social distancing concerns for current returning workers and office nomads.
Our way of living is changed forever. Therefore, employers who recognize the post-Covid reality and prepare by installing and upgrading workspaces in advance will reap the benefits.
“Cubicle farms” are passe. Previously, they were gray with tall panels that you couldn’t look over or around, making collaboration impossible. The modern cubicle is a vibrant and uplifting addition to the office. With styles ranging in configurations, colors, layouts, and customizable details and finishes, we have whatever you and your employees need to get the job done efficiently and safely at Queens Arts and Trends.
