The corporate work place has seen a dramatic change in attitude within the last few years. The work dynamic has changed, become more relaxed and nurturing, with creative giants such as Apple, Microsoft and Google leading the way. Employee motivation has refocused so that an employee is no longer expected to sit in a cubical with their head down but is encouraged to seek communication, inspiration and enjoyment through their work.
This shift is mirrored in the interior design of offices, as more break out areas are created, vibrant colours are added and nature is brought inside. The new energetic and comfortable workplace is meant to make the employees feel at home, away from home. With contemporary breakout furniture becoming the centrepiece of many contract interior designs.
