  • The office interior can give you designs on other people. Many of us meet our friends and partners at work. A recent study showed that around 60 per cent of people have had a relationship with somebody at work.
  • Work has an important role to play in our wellbeing. It structures our time, develops us as people, provides us with social interaction and in many cases is inherently rewarding. An effective office refurbishment will reflect those same aims.
  • Not going to work makes us unhappy. Research shows that there is a lot of psychological distress associated with lack of work. We need to work, be occupied and around other people. Those needs demand an office interior solution.
  • Love the place you’re in. What surrounds us on a day to day basis plays an important role in deciding how we feel about what we do and who we are. The best office design ideas will reflect this.
  • How we feel about work has a knock on effect for the rest of our lives. An office space design can significantly affect how we feel. Even so you will still want to share the complaints of the day with the ones you love.
  • Our own work shows how office interiors can help us to be happy and more productive. Office space planning and office design should not only be a reflection of what we do for a job but also how we feel as individuals. Great things are possible when an office fit-out is in tune with the values and desires of people and the firms for which they work.
