Since its establishment 34 years ago, our team at OFIS has been working closely with both end-users and interior designers to help them find the right furniture and flooring products.
Today, we're on a different mission — supporting companies across the UAE to create and re-create more health-conscious workspaces in the post-COVID-19 world.
To get organizations running at partial capacity, they will need to bring their employees back in waves, while some may still continue to work from home.
Thus, the workplace needs to be thoughtfully planned based on current government & global health guidelines and available researches and design recommendations from the top global workplace specialists, such as our partner Steelcase.
Following these recommendations, we’ve created our “Back to Work | OFIS practical guide and design recommendations for the post-COVID workspaces”. We hope that you will find this guide and our initial recommendations useful.
To help you and your team adjust for physical distancing guidelines, alongside our “Back to Work” guide, we are now offering complimentary design advice and floor plan revision of your current office layout, using your existing furniture.
Our sales and design teams are on call to answer your questions about different layout options and available solutions so request your online meeting today.
Or share with us your existing floor plan (either CAD or PDF file) and let us know how we can help you in retrofitting your space to create the future well-being of your workplace and people.
