    The shift from a traditional office to an activity-based working office represents a fundamental design transformation. Transforming Carl Zeiss Singapore into ABW concept with open cubicles, window view hot desks, and fixed workstations give way to flexible and dynamic spaces. Design features such as flexible furniture, open floor plans, and technology-enhanced spaces accommodate different work styles. The traditional, unchanging nature of the office is replaced by a dynamic setting that aligns with contemporary work preferences, fostering engagement, productivity, and employee well-being in an ever-evolving business environment.

    The design narrative focuses on seamlessly blending technology, nature, and a human-centered perspective. The office’s aesthetic is characterized by a modern, timeless, bright, and spacious feel, shown by choosing a white exposed ceiling concept with white pendant lights. The wooden collaboration pods are designed to facilitate teamwork as well as provide sense of privacy – without creating boundaries and traditional walls. Equipped with acoustic fins, not only do these pods organize the workspace but also act as architectural features, framing the collaboration areas. We’ve also chosen a neutral and eco-friendly material palette that not only reflects Zeiss’s core values but also fosters a soothing and tranquil environment for our employees. The primary color scheme includes shades of whites and greys, complemented by wooden accents and abundant greenery to infuse warmth and strike a harmonious balance between the elements of nature and technology.
