Since our launch in 2012 we've seen offices transformed from boring, soulless spaces, into dynamic working environments.
Here's how we do it.
Solution: We'll give you a room with a view.
If you have a meeting room (or phone booth or kitchen) without windows, or worse still, a window which looks out onto a concrete wall, we'll put up a landscape. The best option is a landscape photograph, because it's realistic enough to act like a real view, and the frame is the window.
Here's one we made earlier: The Phone Booths at Mobeus Equity.
Before Art in Offices were called in, the staff at Mobeus only had a blank wall to stare at during phone calls. "Not very inspiring."
Now they look out onto"Stream to Buttermere Lake" , which they rent for £66 per month, and rotate every 6 months. "Much more relaxing."
Too Many White Walls?
Solution: We'll prescribe a colourful abstract painting.
Not everyone works in a glass walled new-build office. Many of you still work in offices with lots of blank. white. walls....which are empty....and big......and boring. The best solution is a colourful abstract painting because the swirling and geometric forms create texture and interest to the blank wall. The bright colours add energy and brightness, and now you have something inspirational to look at when you're not staring at your screen.
Here's one we made earlier: The big white cube at Tusk Therapeutics
Working in a big white box was enough to drive these scientists mad (almost).
So every four months we send them a variety of new artworks to keep the space interesting and colourful.
Solution: We'll install something with impact.
Making an impression is important. Reception areas shouldn't be neglected. Why? Because they are the first place a client will get their first impression of you. So put up a painting that signifies who you are as a company (youthful, sober, energetic, trustworthy), and put a sculpture on the coffee table.
Here's one we made earlier: The Square at Leatherhead
Add more than one large painting, in bright colours and simple shapes.
Large walls need colour to fill them and stop them looking empty.
Solution: We'll suggest an art subscription.
It's a fact that you'll never be able to please all of the people, all of the time. When it comes to choosing art you need to accept that, but be comforted in the knowledge that an art subscription will solve this problem. Change the art regularly, and there'll always be something that people like, eventually.
