Open workspace designs, digitized nomad culture and collaborative communities are decentralizing the conventional arrangement of the office. This creates a more sociable environment, where ideas are more productively shared and connections between employers and employees are enhanced. A good example of this rupture in practice is the adidas Valley — an open workspace design for the sports company's headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany.
The arrangement is developed by Berlin-based studio Actincommon who undertakes a layered approach to design. The space is strategically broken up to create platforms that are intended for different levels of privacy. While the inserted natural elements create an enjoyable calming environment, the colorful elements that are spread out throughout the open workspace design really engage with playful connotations.
