Only a genius controls the chaos! We follow this wisdom often in our workplace, where we aim for structure, organization and discipline. But, let's face it, a little chaos also encourages our creativity; whilst a sterile workplace can be boring and uninspiring! It’s important that our minds don’t dry up in the workplace and that we can nourish them enough to keep them coming up with fresh ideas throughout the day. We believe that the work environment is the biggest contributor to whether or not you are able to work productively. We've collected a few ideas on how to create a practical, creative and sociable set up.
A large wall to collect ideas, inspiration and plans for future projects. In order for us to organize and carry out brainstorming sessions more easily and also to make them look much more appealing for later reference, a big display can help: pin ideas to the wall, draw, theorise like it’s a big blank canvas, just for you. We like this office design by Uwe Gärtner because of its use of colour, space and potential for absolute personalisation.
In order for us to have a flow of constant, good thoughts when working, it's also important to shut our brains down every so often; to give it time to rest. A view like this would certainly provide you with that!
A loft conversion gone very right here, from Agustí Costa. A workplace that screams both comfort and hard work. Ambiently lit to accomodate a productive work atmosphere, area of study and relaxation.
A bright and warm atmosphere is great for a home office to keep up the spirits and, again, put a smile on your face! We all work more productively with a positive attitude -who wouldn't feel happy in this golden glowing design from Susanne Kaiser? The use of light and natural colours gives it an aura of enticement and, just like our office before, there's always a quality view to distract you when you grind to a halt!
A huge study area, from our friend Agustí Costa again, here. An academics home office perhaps? Surrounded by literature and comfort in knowledge. A cosy, designer fire, enough storage space to last you a lifetime and a good view out onto the garden.
On the other side of the room, we now get to see the true expanse of this office: enough space for extra hands to come and work here and very mood based lighting; combining natural light intake with the surrounding artificial,to create a well lit but non-bright surrounding.
