Flexibility & Visual Thinking in the Future Office

“Analogue writing is not obsolete” states Dennis Kopaß, Senior Marketing Manager at Legamaster. Our expert explains in this interview how the office world is changing, and why retailers need to adapt their ranges.

Conzoom Lernen Envelope Ecommerce

Where is the world of work at present?
It’s in a period of transition. For the first time, four generations are in the workplace at once – there are Baby Boomers, Generation X (born 1965–1979) and Millennials (or Generation Y), as well as Generation Z – the Digital Natives (born 1995 onwards). From 2020, over 50% of employees will belong to the two younger generations. Generation Z sees digital media as an integral part of life, and companies of all sizes face the challenge of providing them with an attractive working environment. Change is being clearly expressed in physical office space: open space is increasingly replacing traditional departments and offices for one or two people. Open offices mean working environments which foster collaboration, where teams can work together across different disciplines, outside their own department. Many businesses based in Germany are now designing their office space in line with this successful model. It’s not just big companies that are sending out forward-thinking messages: SMEs are also rethinking the layout and design of their working worlds. All companies will benefit from the future of design thinking: interior design based around fast-moving, agile processes.

What does this mean for the office 4.0?
Instead of conventional meeting rooms, several smaller, more flexible spaces will be available – including places for meetings that are visually separated off, and ‘smart’ areas which can be used spontaneously for informal meetings. Many companies already have ‘huddle rooms’ to which small teams can retire for brief, fairly relaxed meetings. These are equipped with a flipchart or a floor-to-ceiling whiteboard wall, a standing table and some stools: these are informal spaces. Think tanks already help foster creativity and bring about solutions to problems. In order to involve those areas of the company that will be affected by these outcomes, visualisations will remain key, perhaps on whiteboard walls in prominent places.  In the Future Office, it will be completely normal to have a virtual desktop which allows workers to access their own personal virtual workspace from any physical desk in the company.

Generation Z wants structure, self-fulfilment and to feel comfortable; they consciously reject the open-plan office. What makes ‘open spaces’ different?
The concept has very little to do with the conventional open-plan office, in which you can see right through from one side to the other, with 5 rows of 20 desks. Instead, a relatively large area is divided into ‘islands’ for teams, in which all workspaces are oriented towards daylight. Now nobody need sit in the middle of the room under fluorescent lights. Areas for wellbeing and design thinking are also crucial, as they foster creativity. This is the ideal environment for agile project management. Open spaces also promote advanced design thinking because of the acoustics, since the new floor-to-ceiling whiteboards and pinboards also provide sound insulation. They prove that working environments can feel like home and bring a sense of belonging. This wellbeing trend is setting new standards – and after all, we often spend more time in the office than we do within our own four walls.

The German employment ministry wants to legislate for working from home. Do younger generations still find this an attractive way of working?
Not working exclusively from home. What many young people want is a mixture of office and home working, which often works well in companies which allow their workers to do so.

How important will visualisation be for tomorrow’s world of work and what do we need for it?
Studies predict it will be very important. This is down to new methods of agile project management, which are much more fluid and therefore quicker and more efficient than conventional project management methods. Companies are increasingly investing in these, because more agile thinking means the ability to react more quickly. How does this work? Typically, with agile project management the goal won’t be fully established at the start of the project, which means the team can constantly adjust the goal to customer requirements and changing circumstances. This methodology is something which Generation Y learned at university. Visualisation is the key theme for agile project management. Whiteboard walls are everywhere, so ideas and project progress can be collated and recorded.

Is it possible that analogue visualisation will fall behind?
Digitalisation will indeed press ahead, but it will never completely replace analogue writing with a pen. Instead, digital and analogue visualisation will coexist and support one another. We are convinced that both will coexist peacefully in future.

What effects will these developments and predictions have on retail?
The range of products for the presentation and moderation sector is certainly growing. One reason for this is the huge growth in office space in Germany. Whiteboards and space to write on are in particular demand, this is more than just a passing fad. Retail can use this segment to boost its turnover.

What does Legamaster offer in terms of visual communication products and solutions?
Legamaster offers some 1,500 presentation equipment products for professional use. Our range includes whiteboards, mobile glass writing boards and flipcharts plus writing accessories, and digital solutions such as interactive touch displays. We observe the modern world of work very closely to see what is needed, and monitor the latest technologies for things we can use in visualisation – such as innovative LED technologies and gesture control. The future is so close, you can touch it: Even now you can use virtual reality headsets to take part in a meeting happening thousands of miles away. In the next generation, the divide between reality (IRL) and virtual reality and the internet will be increasingly blurred. Appropriate visualisation solutions will be required.

What new products did you present at Paperworld? 
There was a lot of interest in Legamaster’s ‘Space up’ range of frameless writing surfaces which can be enlarged to suit the customer. These allow customers to cover whole walls with a whiteboard. We also presented magnetic sheets which can turn almost any surface, including doors and cupboards, into an outsized writing surface. For complex tasks and brainstorming, you often want more space than the usual writing surfaces provide. That was what a study found: It provided the final push we needed to develop the right product.

Envelope 2.0: Envelopes as packaging for e-commerce

Envelopes and other packaging that fits through letterboxes are big players in the world of e-commerce. They’re second to none in terms of safe arrival and sustainability. Udo Karpowitz from the German envelope industry association (VDBF) is thinking of the decline in traditional letters through the post when he says: “Change means great opportunities for retail”. He spoke at the Envelope 2.0 themed area at Paperworld 2019, showing a route map for postal communications and explaining who the real winners are with online sales. Our expert explains in an interview how stationery shops and specialist retailers can use these changes to their advantage.


Conzoom Lernen Envelope Ecommerce


Udo Karpowitz, it’s the envelope’s 200th anniversary!
Yes, in 2020. By the second half of the 19th century, Germany had already become a global market leader in making envelopes. That has remained the case. There used to be a huge range of formats, from paper envelopes for x-rays to postage-stamp-sized ones, but now they are more standardised.

Our traditional post is in decline, especially posting invoices. How are you facing up to this?
A clear change is taking place. These days, envelopes contain more than just communication. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in goods dispatched in packaging suitable for the letterbox; envelopes are increasingly used for e-commerce. Books, concert tickets and small spare parts are just some of the items posted. Envelope 2.0 addresses the needs of this new type of business, which has specific requirements for packaging and envelopes. They must be watertight, tear-resistant and often padded with either paper or plastic.

How is retail reacting to this radical change? Are there opportunities for the trade here?
Good-quality envelopes and attractive stationery are in greater demand. Character is key. Stylish handwriting using a fountain pen plus top quality, extravagant accessories are ideal sales arguments for stationery shops, and for the retail trade as a whole. In a parallel development, we’re keeping an eye on the fast-growing sector for ‘packing and shipping’. Bricks-and-mortar traders should create special areas which showcase this. This sector includes cardboard packaging for posting books, binders and folders. This will help the millions of small sellers on eBay and other online platforms: they need packaging which ensures their items arrive safely through the letterbox, even if the addressee is not at home.


What part do environmental aspects play?
A really big part. Like most paper packaging, envelopes have a strong environmental image. And they can fulfil that potential by using environmentally friendly paper, glue and ink. The demand is growing very rapidly. Our industry continues to seek out new solutions, such as for the cellophane around greetings cards. We should also soon have more resource-efficient alternatives for the windows in envelopes. Retailers are sure to benefit from these developments, as customers choose ever more discerningly from the range of environmentally friendly packaging.

What practical steps can stationery shops take to ensure they succeed?
The stationery and paper goods sector should continue to fine tune its image: by offering quality solutions for small sellers, and possibly expanding this particular range, while continuing to supply very high-quality writing paper and accessories. We are confident that sustainable packaging is a growth area. It is growing at an average of 10 % a year.

What are you hearing from retailers who dispatch some of their range in letterbox-friendly packaging?
I’m hearing only good things about the paper industry. The share of online sales in retail turnover is growing markedly. In Germany, around 3.6 million items a year are ordered online and posted, and this trend is clearly on the increase. The majority of parcels weigh less than 2 kg. Over the next few years, we will also see many packaging materials coming onto the market for small parcels sold online. These will meet a wide variety of requirements, from a wide variety of products. The prospects for retail are therefore very good.

Can you identify any trends in packaging?
At the moment, larger formats are very popular, from C5 upwards. There is also a trend towards higher-grammage paper, such as brown kraft paper. Envelopes are increasing in strength and size and shipping bags are becoming more stable and therefore more secure in transit.

The reliability aspect seems to be key.
A study in Germany found that, alongside quality, 52 % of the population cited the reliable receipt of goods they ordered as the most important criterion. ‘Letterboxable’ packaging can ensure this. From a size and weight perspective, we know that some 40 % of all items sold online will fit through domestic letterboxes. If our letterboxes were as big as most are in the US, they could accommodate even wider parcels. In the long term, letterboxes will adapt, and perhaps even include a built-in scanner to inform the addressee that the parcel has arrived.

The retail trade saw the price of paper increase hugely in 2018. What is the current situation?
Paper has never been so expensive as it was in 2018. We are currently expecting paper prices to fall again – they have already fallen slightly. The all-clear has been given for the price of postage for letters to rise. This will not affect the envelope and ‘letterboxable’ packaging sector. Nobody will be discouraged from sending thick notepaper or artistic greeting cards due to higher postage costs. The sending of high-quality goods does not seem to be affected by price increases, since safe transit and receipt are the priorities here.

What will the envelopes of the future be like?
They’ll be able to do far more than they currently can. Fascinating technologies already used for dialogue marketing in the luxury goods sector will also be sold to retail. One example is printed electronics. Paper envelopes and packaging can provide links to videos, which could for example show the directions for using the product inside. A printed battery would supply the electricity. LED lighting effects can also be printed ultra-thin. This technology is still expensive, but it’s only a matter of time before it is ready for the mass market. A traditional area for stationery is art cards, where this technology will certainly feature in future.

Thank you for the interview!
