In this exclusive interaction with Abi Roni Mattom the Country Director of Unispace India, talks about the trending and unique workplace designs evolving the future of work.
How is Unispace adapting to the rising demand for flexible workspaces, and what services or features drive this trend?
The demand for flexible workplaces is rising, with employers seeking spaces for various work needs like client meetings, training, and short-term projects. Traditional fixed office designs are needed, leading to a shift towards strategic, inclusive, and cost-effective designs. Unispace and experts in this field are supporting this shift. Flexible workspaces serve multiple purposes, from training to innovation hubs, promoting employee well-being and more. These spaces can adapt to changing demands, offering quick expansion or contraction without long leases. Companies must analyse their current space usage and align it with business needs to achieve this. Unispace focuses on creating functional, productive, and welcoming spaces for employees and clients.
What challenges and opportunities does Unispace see in providing workspaces for Indian professionals?
Unispace is at the forefront of transforming the workplace into a destination, going beyond conventional workspace design. The company prioritises offering an experiential dimension to users and helps clients understand their workforce’s true needs and challenges. Unispace caters to the unique demands of the evolving workforce, focusing on innovation and inclusivity.
How is Unispace facilitating a safe and productive return to the office for its client’s post-COVID?

Unispace prioritises designing offices that promote connections and inclusivity. They focus on accessibility, wayfinding, digital displays, lighting, and workstations in the post-COVID workplace, ensuring that employees can be themselves and meet their needs, contributing to future-proofing the office environment.
What are some of the unique design elements or features that differentiate Unispace’s workspaces in the Indian market?
