The Importance of Office Design

"In 2014, Teknion and Pearson Lloyd began to explore design concepts that would reflect the social and technological changes driving new behaviors at work. This Creative Collaboration™ resulted in a poetic expression of a humanistic work culture, which has evolved into a robust solution for workplace design." 

Look around your office. Does is capture who you are as a company? Here are 3 ways to improve your company culture through better design.

1. Collaboration - a  crucial component for a strong culture; Teknion architectural walls and common work areas like cafes and community work tables are examples of workplace design that will create shared experiences and healthy work ethnic. Also, grouping departments alike creates smart boundaries but collaboration areas will push each other to be better employees.

2. Biophilia - the idea that humans hold a biological need for connection with nature. Biophilic design incorporates nature into the built environment. Research shows that biophilic design is good for human health; employees with views of nature take less sick leave per year than employees with no view. Bringing plants into the office is just as important to lower stress, increase job satisfaction and production and cleaner air!

3. Brand - when people walk into your office, they should know instantly what your company is all about! Make design choices consistent with who you are; our showroom fosters creativity and presents innovative furniture and office design. Our company logo is hung high in our cafe against our company colored wall, orange!

Through the right design choices, you can steer your company to promote positive attitudes and encourage productive work behaviors. It is obvious that happy employees stay longer at their jobs and help outperform their competition and better design will achieve this goal.

Home Office Happiness

Where my Homies at??!!! My work from Homies that is. We can help! What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so. My environment was not allowing me to do my job efficiently and it was taking it’s toll on my overall wellbeing.” Kamay’s requirements for his home office were having a dedicated office space, great acoustical isolation, proper ergonomics and a great value.  Challenge accepted!

Setting Up an Efficient Home Office

Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind! Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity. There are a lot of options for height-adjustable desking that allows you to sit/stand throughout the day and Teknion has various options like the Emote, hiSpace or the Navigate. Seating is just as important as your desking for an efficient home office so take the time to select and invest in a comfortable chair; ergonomics and comfort count when it comes to sitting. We have endless options: Contessa, Sabrina and the Projek office chairs and for a quick, cost-effective opt
