Office furniture is typically designed for specific functions and not adaptable to dynamic environments that are changing and growing.

When organisations undergo change, their office interiors often become obsolete, and furniture is usually discarded. Not only does this practice create avoidable waste, but it can also be costly and disruptive to work flow. This is all too common and not sustainable for businesses or the planet.

Circular office furniture

Ope’s adaptable, modular furniture promotes living office landscapes and the circular economy. The company has broken down furniture into individual panels and connectors, forming building blocks that can cover a vast array of functions. Its patented assembly technology allows for unlimited configurations to adapt to changing needs.

The furniture is designed for cyclical reuse and can be modified as needed without waste, and with minimal noise and disruption. This enables the office landscape to change in sync with rapidly changing organisations.

Concrete benefits

Because Ope Spacecraft™ can be reconfigured onsite, can be reconfigured onsite, there is no waste, replacement cost or transport emissions. Unlimited variations help to create a stimulating working environment in open-plan offices.

The furniture is durable, sustainable and features timeless Scandinavian design. Integrated sound absorbers improve the working environment for employees without compromising the aesthetics of the space.

Market potential

Open office landscapes represent a growing trend for business interiors, as they provide efficient use of each square metre and lower costs. However, reduced productivity in the workspace is a common side effect.

Ope anticipates a greater demand for flexible furniture configurations for open-plan offices that can improve employee productivity and well-being in rapidly changing work environments.
