Living and working environment design also reflects the social changes pinpointed by various future and trend researchers as megatrends.
Global trends such as personalisation, the neo-ecology concept, „new work” or urbanisation, spawn individual trends. Changes in the working world, such as “co-working” or “urban manufacturing”, also influence our working environments – open-plan offices, a cosy atmosphere and fitness, health and leisure time offers are designed to motivate the employees, improve communication and thereby make our work more productive.
Sustainable construction or “healing architecture” are changing the materials and products used by architects and interior designers. Due to the increasing focus on urban conglomerations, living spaces are becoming a precious commodity. “Micro-housing” and “co-living” are changing the interior design and furnishings in our homes.
All of this impacts on the colours, materials and surfaces. Pfleiderer takes these future topics on board and is setting design trends for the next few years with its latest range of innovative finishes and textures.
