The color concept of an office will surely succeed if a clear design goal is formulated, the design parameters are taken into account and the color choice suits the respective company. The focus should always be on people with their individual and emotional needs. In view of the dovetailing between private and professional life, it happens that people work in their private living environment, conversely, more homeliness should create the way to the offices of the future. Here, functional and aesthetic aspects have to be taken into account: With regard to functionality, offices are more flexible in their use today, static walls can be moved, communication areas expanded and oases of retreat created. Gyms and even entertainment areas are emerging. However, aesthetic aspects should not be neglected. Now the question arises: How do I create an atmosphere that everyone likes? Difficult, but doable, because people are shaped differently and tastes often drift apart. The fact is that the equipment, furnishings, choice of materials and colors can do a lot. It is therefore worth considering where we particularly like to stay or spend our free time. It can be the garden, a city, the holiday home, living room or favorite restaurant. The colors and materials that characterize these locations are positive. They can be analyzed and integrated into an interior design in a new context - also in an office room.that equipment, furnishings, choice of materials and colors can make a big difference.

Tip 1: Color design - use natural colors
Most people feel particularly comfortable in nature. Color moods with natural associations therefore meet with broad approval. Since we spend a lot of time in the office, shielded from the outside world, sometimes arriving and leaving in the dark, it makes sense to transport a natural color atmosphere into the interior.
Working in an office complex with naturally associated color moods is recommended for another reason: More and more companies are focusing on sustainability. Climate change is omnipresent, environmental damage and species extinction are a sad reality. Therefore, materials that are durable, conserve resources, are recycled and harmless are increasingly being used. The “green” company image should definitely be reflected in the interior design and thus have a positive effect on employees and customers.
Tip 2: Color design - predefine color palettes
It is advisable to involve employees in the redesign of their office space. This is often done in terms of practical needs and space requirements. It is not always possible to have a say in the color scheme. Co-determination is very popular, however, if a color selection is made possible at least in some areas. For example, predefined color palettes for individual accent walls could be available. This would ensure a uniform color language in an office complex and still take the color preferences of the college into account. This can promote motivation and enjoyment at work.
Tip 3: Color design - avoid strong contrasts
Office space is divided into areas of concentration, communication and regeneration. This differentiation can be emphasized in color by making workplaces that require a high level of concentration more quiet than communication areas. Combinations of bright and subtle colors without strong contrasts are conceivable here. To avoid reflection and glare, we generally recommend matt surfaces. In communicative areas, the design can be lively and striking. It is important that the differently used rooms differentiate themselves, because this has a stimulating effect and ensures variety.
Tip 4: Color design - pick up CI colors
Not only the colors, but also the materials and surfaces should vary in order to create a positive, friendly atmosphere that fits the company image. It may also be possible to integrate company colors into the design concept, but the use of CI colors should be done with care. If used too strikingly, the effect could be assessed as too intrusive, aggressive or unimaginative. Dosed sparingly and integrated into the general color mood, a company color can contribute to identification with the company. Logo colors are particularly suitable in the reception area and in conference rooms with a representative character.
Tip 5: provide inspiration
Areas of regeneration such as break rooms allow a short break to work. A calm and orderly atmosphere supports the recreational value more than restless small parts, which can arise from open shelves, pin boards or patterned materials. In terms of color, “retreat rooms” can also be designed concisely. It depends on a varied color mood that refreshes and inspires.
Tip 6: Combine correctly
Painting all walls in white or in one shade quickly leads to fatigue. A design with many strong shades, on the other hand, could appear “loud” and lead to overstimulation and difficulty concentrating. It comes down to a balanced color and material combination, which moves between "low stimulus" and "attractive". In stairwells and sanitary areas, there is nothing to be said against the use of strong colors because of the short dwell time - not even on larger areas. In the shared office, strong accents are only advisable on small spaces.
When choosing the color, the lighting situation is also crucial. Selected colors should therefore be checked on site in the respective room with daylight and artificial lighting and adjusted if necessary.

The importance of customizable, networked and also ergonomic workplaces will continue to increase in the working world of the future. Not only the desk, chair and input devices play a role here, but also the right lighting
A current Forsa survey commissioned by Waldmann GmbH & Co. KG shows that for the absolute majority of industrial companies, good lighting is very important * for maintaining health and performance in the workplace. Around half of the companies state that the proportion of aging employees will increase.
