To present New Dimensions, Sedus has chosen a dynamic format, perfectly consistent with this key vision. Not the classic webinar, but a phygital show that connected Sedus headquarters in Dogern with various offices in Europe – the most recent was held in Italy – to illustrate new furniture solutions born from the analysis of the new needs due to the post pandemic office, to find out what the New Dimensions of the workplace are and provide useful practical advice to “move” into these new dimensions within an ecosystem of physical and digital spaces.
Hogel Jahnke, member of the executive committee and mktg & sales manager, accompanies us on a scooter inside the Dogern smart offices explaining how the different areas and settings are planning and how it is possible to create a connection between the offline world and the online world thanks to the se: connect software, a very useful tool for work areas optimization, booking workstations and providing data for social distances, safety and corona virus prevention.
The pandemic teaches us we can work in different places, but – after months of home office, virtual communication and digitized team work – it has also confirmed people’s desire to return to the office, the need to communicate and sharing ideas.
But office of the future must be different from the traditional one: space becomes a tool to facilitate physical communication and must be able to offer flexibility, transformability and multifunctionality to set up always different sets .. and also outdoor office.
These issues are explored by Ernst Holzapfel, mktg manager and creator of the new key vision, who explains how the office is changing and increasingly expanding its borders.
The New Dimensions are defined in a context of exponential growth of technologies within we can connect and work together.
Working together is a new dimension, too. Among the concrete researches conducted by Sedus together with specialists and universities, to navigate this new ecosystem, he cites the book “Collaboration and Beyond” and the brochure dedicated to color trends in the office for the next two years.
Linda Schuster, product manager, shows how the visions and concepts of “Collaboration and Beyond” have been translated into furniture solutions for a truly Agile office: intuitive, user-friendly, flexible, dynamic and easily adaptable furnishings.
The office chair concept also changes and expands to meet both the needs of working in the office and remotely, as explained by Angela Bartelmess, product manager seating. New meanings linked to the mood of the different environments were added to the classic vision of dynamic ergonomics of which Sedus was a pioneer and intelligent task chairs, also perfect for home offices, there are also
There is also a hybrid solution that merges table and chair in a light and very agile micro workstation.
The meeting ended on the Dogern stage where members of the Sedus executive committee discussed the economic repercussions of the pandemic.
