The Revolution of the Workspace – BuzziSpace
Is the workplace finally stepping over to the same side as, not the “workforce” or “employees,” but the people? It seems that Generation Y (born sometime between 1979 and 1997) is the rising force that will change the conventional notion of work, which, despite the lack of gratification received from it, no felt empowered to tackle until now.
In this age led by knowledge and networking on digital platforms, Generation Y has coalesced with technology, performing more effectively and adapting faster than previous generations. Though workaholics, their life and work fused firmly together, they choose meaningful jobs with challenges regarding high pay, transparent and creative workspaces with flexible work schedules and valuing their social lives enriched with a handful of activities.
“A note to their bosses: they will question your authority and walk out if you ignore their needs, their loyalty and their excellent performance! In fact, they are your future bosses.”
As Work becomes one with Life, the office requires all the elements of home – comfort, sources of inspiration, support for transparency, flexibility, and collaboration – but at the same time must fulfil the role of a “cocoon of privacy,” where people can relax, sheltered from the hum of the surrounding environment.
Because positive acoustics have a direct effect on our concentration, performance and health, we can therefore achieve the most without being annoyed by countless distracters, either from our colleagues or the sterile interiors.
This trend has been the highlight of the Orgatec 2012 in Cologne, which is in line with shifting toward user-driven innovation as the newest paradigm of the recent years.
BuzziSpace covers every Work Situation
BuzziSpace is a relatively young brand based in Belgium that has been responding to the growing trend by taking into account the well being of the people and thus developing innovative acoustic solutions for professional workspaces and home offices.
The designers Alain Gilles, Axel Enthoven, Sas Adriaenssens and Couvreur & Devos have defined BuzziSpace’s authentic product line so far, while the products are being crafted using recycled PET bottles.
