Times are changing in an accelerating pace, like on a high-speed runway. The only thing that does not change is change itself. As a result, an enterprise’s adaptability has naturally become one of its core competitiveness.So how does office space deeply related to enterprises adapt to those changes? And what will the future workspace look like?
In the past, everyone is restrained in a tall, narrow folding screen-like box. While today, with the popularity of network and integration and simplification of office equipment, we can gradually get rid of the constraints of traditional workspace and more and more people can benefit from the efficiency and convenience of working anytime and anywhere. For example, they can communicate with colleagues over phone on the road, check emails or even consult and approve electronic texts, etc.
Traditional spatial planning can no longer meet work demands of all nature. People are not necessarily “fixated” in a 5-square-meter workstation. Instead, one can choose a suitable working environment according to his current status, which can be a "box" that allows one to be focused on thinking, an open workbench, or an inspirational public area full of responsibilities, or a meeting space for formal discussion, or an informal discussion area in close proximity and offers great convenience.
LENCO+, more than a product
While diversified working lifestyles take us out of the “box”, how shall we tend to our privacy, stay focused on work and allow for goods storage in an open workspace that promotes communication and exchange, while infusing it with vitality and preventing it from becoming a monotonous honeycomb? That has become a latest challenge in offering a diversified office space.
To meet such demand, we need to redefine a “systematic workplace”-a new LENCO + modularized system, which can always “suit” the environmental changes no matter how the space changes. Adaptable is a feature of LENCO+ in its DNA like the evolution of species in nature.
Four forms of working
In different forms of working, Lenco+ shapes the atmosphere freely and miraculously according to the needs of different working groups.
48% at the workspace
48% out and about in the office landscape
4% outside the office
Such staff such as product manager and marketing support does most of their work in the office landscape. Their jobs require a lot of desk work as well as inspirations obtained through interaction with colleagues. However, they rarely work outside the office.
Partition boards of various heights are designed on desk, adjustable according to employee's work status. Privacy requires not always a workspace solution, nor is determined by your boss. Here users are advocated to choose by themselves as no one other than themselves is better aware of their own needs of space complementing their current work status.
Lenco+ semi-open workstation with cushioned side cabinets, catering to the needs of a heartfelt talk with colleagues by offering comfortable seats.
Lenco+ table screen are combined with hanging screen to effectively divide staff area with person-in-charge’s work position, which can ensure the privacy of person-in-charge within the same workspace while enhancing the interaction between the two.
The 120 degree screen offers maximized desktop area and a great fit for Design and Development Dept. with larger office space. While bringing immediate supervisor together with the employees, the extended desktop coupled with lounge chair ensure the demands of hospitality on the supervisor’s side as well as discussions.
78% outside the office
18% at the workspace
4% out and about in the office landscape
People like sales staff travel a lot outside the office. They don’t have a fixed workstation and mobility is the feature of working. They can work anytime and anywhere on any job in a fast and efficient manner.
Lenco+ open workstation can meet such employees’ demands for mobility and more than that. For sales staff spending merely 2 hours in office every day on average, a liberated workstation can be the best means to enhance their work efficiency.
For staff taking work shifts, workstations designed for 6 can now accommodate 6 to 12 employees working in different hours of a day. For them who usually spend 2 hours a day in the office, ergonomic chairs are not even a necessary option. An open, non-official meeting room could be their temporary working location.
Lenco+ conference table, combined with a PAI wall or mini-media wall, offers with an immediate sharing space for 3 to 7 people. Lenco+ is more than an open workstation; it can also be a traditional enclosed workplace or even a meeting room.
Stability brings out quality
78% at the workplace
18% out and about in the office landscape
4% outside the office
Staff such as financial and administrative general affairs workers stays mainly at the workplace, who usually works on statistics of a great amount of text information as well as storage and management of historical documents. The demand for storage space is high. Meanwhile, working out enterprise financial status, data conversion and processing, as well as employee payroll processing all require a quiet and private working environment to ensure concentration and accuracy of mass data.
Lenco+ “box”-type floor-screen work stations creates perfect privacy while providing office clerks abundant space for storage. Besides movable cabinets, diverse lockers can be suspended onto the screen offering a “third space” that greatly expands storage space.

Another type of people who are engaged in consultation, negotiation and other jobs need to interact frequently with their partners or external vendors and develop programs targeted for different forms of cooperation.
The person-in-charge will no longer be confined to an enclosed space surrounded by walls. Through the use of floor screen, LENCO+ offers the most convenient furnishing “partition” in space planning to ensure privacy as well as the transparency and openness of the entire space, which allow for better interaction with subordinates and better supervision. With 2 or 3 additional lounge chairs and coffee table, an exclusive small meeting space is easily created to facilitate communication with partners.
Different hours of a day, changing working state and different workspaces
The four different working groups have diverse demands for space planning and furniture combinations; however, from a personal dimension, one in different time of a day should be offered with different workspaces to match with his/her changing working state.
Work & Leisure
Today, space boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred: space for discussion in a small group of 3-5 people has transferred from the pantry, discussion areas within high partitions, reception area to staff’s work stations. A space for concentration can be also inspirational in an instant.
Lenco+ work stations for 4 offers the flexibility of desk job as well as combination with adjacent recreation area to create an open discussion space for 6 to 8. By sharing your notebook information with Mini-media screen, you can instantly share with others your latest creative solutions.
A design office needs to be inspirational. Lenco+ 120˚ work stations work together with Singlax leisure sofa to create an open pool of creativity. Designers are meant to share in easy spirit here. A group of five can talk leisurely at bar, or you can invite your partners to talk at work stations or on sofa, standing or seated.
