Microsoft have not reveled any details about this, but made sure that next office suit would have metro look for menus and icons. Interface is expected to have better support for touch based computing. A leaked screenshot of pre-beta office 2013 somewhat shows how it looks. Even though there is very little to know from this screenshot, it assures to have all new interface and perfect fusion of Windows 8 and touch based devices.
Like what happen to Windows logo, same applies to Office 2013 which is going to have a brand new logo. Yet this also is inspired from metro tiles.
Not much detail is out over web, but there are few confirmed changes which could be make out from above screenshots. Also note, this screenshots is taken from pre-beta version of Office 2013 which is till under development and final version may have different design.
