The Power Of Environment

No, I am not talking about global warming here, although that has had an impact on design. I am talking about the office space that you work in and the impact that space can have on your state of mind. With this in mind I wanted to highlight exactly why this is important and give some examples of office interior design that is so inspirational it will even put you in a good mood – and you do not even work there!

MTV Headquarters in Berlin have definitely continued their theme of funky fresh music television across to their office, with an open plan design encouraging communication between workers – all in a very relaxed and fresh and modern office environment.

Disney Store Headquarters in Pasadena have a funky open plan office space with large honeycomb wall pieces that are movable and can also be used as seats.

Can Not Afford A ReDesign?

You can motivate your staff and improve your employee morale with great office design but you can also do the same thing on a budget by simply buying (or leasing) some funky modern office furniture.

As you can see from some of the inspirational images attached, it is not just the layout and design of these offices that catches your eye, a lot of the time it is a specific piece of furniture or a well placed sculpture/art piece that really brings the whole room together and turns it from an average work space to one that has that WOW factor.
