Luckily, it has long ceased that offices are those grey areas of functionality and lack of design. Increasingly, today workspaces are filled with a dash of colour and are becoming more stylish, following the philosophy of fresh and casual internet start up scene offices.

But if your office has not yet engaged in new trends, and remains aseptic and boring, here are some key ideas to give them a hint of pizzazz! At the end of the day, the office is one of the places where we spend so much time, so it is worth giving it a little joy. Maybe this does not make us forget early mornings, but it makes them more bearable.

A circular shelf

A bookcase is furniture that must be included in an office: books, binders, folders, projects, agendas.. everything needs their own designated place. But if you are tired of the usual rectangular shelves with no grace, it's time to switch to this original circular pattern. This shelf is not just different in form, also in texture: made of rubber-lined Eva felt, can be found in twelve different colors.

A good couple

To avoid the usual mess of papers in the office, here is an original and very practical proposal: a file that hides a mailbox with its own key. Designed for co-working spaces or office buildings, this box has a dual functionality. On the box creates a private space to receive mail, and other feature has room for you to place the magazines and files that you want to share with your colleagues. One element that will allow your documents be together, yet apart.

Practicality and functionality are key words when searching for office furniture. This drawer combines green, white and red with natural wood, creating a different piece that is light, fun and a unique take on traditional storage furniture.

Tick tock

An hour is sixty minutes and each minute turns into sixty seconds. Seen this way, you'd think that time is one of the most objective things in an office. The ticking clock always has the same rate, but our perception is not the same in all situations: sometimes the time flies by other times it seems endless. 

In offices, the time, both the objective and the subjective, are vital. A wall clock is a must in our workspace, but if we choose, it is better to find a fresh design that gives a touch of colour to our office. This particular design gives a twist to the traditional models with a pendulum  that bears no resemblance to those solemn kind found in our grandmothers living rooms.

Metal nature

A bit of nature can make us forget the time spent within the four walls of our offices. Plants, cacti or simply a vase of flowers can bring some fresh air. However, nothing will be as original as this amazing flexo metal. With the form of a crane, the beak of this animal illuminates our report writing in a fun way!

For rainy days

Although it may seem impossible in these hot months, rain is a faithful companion of the boring office days. Accustomed being stuck in the entrance or bins, waiting for it to dry, your umbrella thank you with one of these unique umbrella stands.

Fun coat racks

Another way to add colour to our office is through hanging racks—which, are so often just boring metal hangers or bars. However, it is possible to turn this object into something of originality and fun. This model will test our languages levels. If you know what it means, hang up your coat!
