I propose to talk about the latest, most-fashionable and current trends in office design. Looking at photos of the best offices in Russia and Ukraine, which are weekly picks website www.the-village.ru, can confidently be stated that at the peak of relevance today is a style "loft". He was born in the 60s, when in Bohemian new York and London became customary to fit under the apartment, and at the same time and under art Studio, a former industrial premises – factories, workshops. Painters, sculptors and other artistic brethren made a loft not just fashion trends in interior design, and lifestyle. Style "loft" implies a large common space, not divided by walls, high ceilings, huge Windows. One of the main take style – this is roughing finishing inherent production facilities, or a lack of decoration, some "entertaining".\n\nThe elements of style loft in the Moscow office of the communications Agency Group Sybarit\nIn Russia, for housing or offices in the loft style yet few dare, but its elements can be found in many advanced offices. Loft office must have a concrete or brick wall that can be painted with white paint, restored wood floors, beamed ceilings, metal structures, utilities, on display. All this is an integral part of the style.\n\n\nAn important principle when decorating this space, purchase of furniture – to combine the old and the new. Brick wall or restored floor can be combined with glass, plastic and metal, typical signs of high-tech style. In this interior is a perfect fit unusual designer sofas and abstract painting, coupled with the antique lamp or table.\n\nOld and new: glass partition near artificially aged tables, decorated in decoupage technique\nAs we have already seen, loft and high-tech cardio friends. Incidentally, the victorious procession of high-tech offices of Russia continues. If before this style of high technology preferred IT companies, advertising and design business, today high-tech can be found in offices of companies in very different directions. And not surprising. This style is characterized by a peculiar vigour, dynamism. Functional and at the same time comfortable and ergonomic, it certainly gives the impression of a modern and advanced that it is important for the image of many companies.\n\nLoft and “clean” high-tech: concrete ceiling, large space, low color, metal, glass and plastic in the Kiev office 23/32 Films\n\nHowever, now designers are not seeking to decorate the premises, following the strict canons high-tech. Try to combine with elements of other styles. Presence of natural wood with different textures, plants, decorative design elements – paintings, various figurines, vases, furniture streamlined forms, and even shapeless. Thus it is possible to smooth out the inherent hi-tech some coldness and give the office a personal, unique features.\n\nTypical interior high-tech "dilute" portrait of a girl and shapeless chair in the background\n\nGlass partition in the office of the advertising Agency Sahar is used for humorous inscriptions and messages\n\nHowever, the basic principles of high-tech respected always. In particular, it is a calm color base – white, gray, beige, black, on which are bright accents. As a rule, it is recommended to choose one or two leading colors. As for the main color, then today is the absolute leader is white. Increasingly found offices, bathed in bright light reflecting off the white walls and ceiling. This makes a favorable impression of openness and transparency of business.\n\n\n\nBathed in light, white space and color accents in the Moscow office of the Finnish Martela\n\nThe picture shows the symbolic negotiation of cultural and architectural symbols of Moscow and Helsinki\n\nFurnished in a modern high-tech style adopts streamlined, more user-friendly form\n\nThe Yandex office: the paradoxical combination of massive doors portal and intangible glass partitions\nA good example of loft and a high-tech – Yandex office in Kiev. This large split-level space with a huge window, separated only by glass partitions, is a kind of refined loft. Why loft I call ennobled? Please note that the engineering design on the ceiling are present, but they are not proizvodyat deliberately technocratic experience as painted white. And nowhere there is a rough concrete or brick surfaces. However, other signs of loft are – light, space. In the office, by the way, little furniture, it is unusual and comfortable, used wood, linen, cotton.\n\nExtremely popular inherent in today's high-tech glass partitions. It shows us and Yandex office. On one hand, they allow to zone offices open space without breaking the unity of space, and on the other side – look very stylish and attractive.

The beauty of high-tech, devoid of decorative elements – in the combination of different textures, the play of light on surfaces of glass, metal, polished wood.\nFor India is a very important light. And it's not trerotola chandelier from the ceiling, and a complex system of multiple levels of illumination, allowing you to adjust the intensity of light and to create different effects. Light pours from the huge wall-to-wall Windows. Perhaps the main rule – light should be plenty!\n\nGiant lamp in the office Yandex
