Make room for creativity and wellbeing
A place for exchanging knowledge
Today, offices are more than just workspaces and schools and universities are more than just classrooms and lecture halls. They are places where people meet and spend time together. A well-designed collaborative space provides an opportunity for people with different experiences, education and backgrounds to come together to exchange knowledge and have fun.
Simple things such as seating furniture can make a big difference to how we feel and how we interact with each other. Using sofas and breakout furniture to create dedicated spaces in the room quickly creates a hub for collaboration and conversation. Since the number of seats can be easily varied to suit requirements, the place can make everyone feel included and welcome. It reinforces cohesion in the workplace and creates a sense of belonging.

The best teamwork happens in the right environment
Brainstorming ideas in a group means different opinions and new ideas are taken into account, which provides value to the work as well as having social benefits. The more we work together, the more trust is built between us which makes us better able to solve problems. The best ideas are often conceived away from the desk when talking to other people, for example at lunch, on a coffee break or even in the lift!
That’s why it’s important to change it up; maybe take a break or work somewhere away from your desk for a while. Doing so will give you a chance to refuel and the opportunity to try out a new environment with a different atmosphere, different lighting, different sounds and so on. When we do get away from the desk, most people will choose a comfortable and attractive social space because those types of spaces put us in a good frame of mind.
The right furniture enhances creativity
You want your common areas to be inviting and also a little lively. They should say "you can stay here" and at the same time have a sense that something is happening. Dynamic furniture solutions awaken several senses simultaneously and stimulate creativity. A long, curved sofa snaking around the room, seats of different heights and versatile pouffes are just a few examples of furniture that can make a meeting space more exciting and create the foundations for great collaboration.
