The use of design codes in office design

Which combinations of materials create a harmonious look and how does the interplay of different surfaces and fabrics create a cosy atmosphere?

The use of design codes provides a detailed overview of the materials and colour tones required for a balanced design. The four colour palettes serve as a direct source of inspiration for office design to create a stimulating and comfortable working environment.

The demands for functionality and efficiency have changed significantly in recent years. Instead of focusing on the pressure of performance, people are now at the centre of everyday office life. It has become more important to create an environment in which employees can develop and experience a sense of harmony and familiarity.

Well-being is created through a mixture of personality, serenity and emotional warmth. This creates a working environment that has a positive effect on mental well-being, empowering employees, reduces stress and provides additional motivation. Emotional connection, openness and transparency characterise modern working methods.

Sedus has divided the creative feel-good atmosphere into four office types:

Inviting Office


Warm Office


Relaxing Office


Intimate Office

Natural elements play a central role – be it in the choice of colours or in the design of the surfaces: woods, natural textures such as terrazzo or marble as well as soft natural tones look equally cosy and authentic. Wood conveys a beauty and warmth that comes from nature and gives rooms an inviting atmosphere.

Plants, flowers and other natural elements not only bring freshness to the office, but also create an intuitive connection to nature, which is often perceived as calming. Comfortable furniture and organic shapes promote a flowing design language that contributes to a cosy atmosphere.

Currently, sensual aspects are particularly present for the temptation office: soft, voluminous haptics or authentic, coarse structures can be found in the increasingly homely textiles in the office. As a result, living and office areas are increasingly merging. Influences from the retail and hotel sectors are increasingly being integrated into modern, comfortable offices, creating a unique and soft feel-good ambience.

The right furniture for office design

Choosing the right office furniture is also a consideration. For example se:flair, a chair that perfectly combines comfort and function. It bridges the gap between a classic office chair and a cosy shell chair. Compact, homely and with that certain something, it is compatible with a wide variety of work settings.

The se:living sofa designed by Italian designer Robin Rizzini for Sedus and the matching tables provide the perfect setting to show off the design codes to their full effect and to create an oasis of well-being in the middle of an office. This is where employees meet to exchange ideas or take a relaxing moment to regenerate.

The narrow pedestal launched this year also complements the Design Codes concept perfectly. Its simple appearance and high functionality make it possible to store work utensils safely, ensure a tidy appearance in the office and keep the workplace free of unnecessary items.

Design Codes thus serve as an overall inspiration and design basis for harmonious room concepts that create a pleasant working atmosphere.

How design codes are created can be read in the interview with the colour and trend agency Zukunftstil.
