Contrasting design for the modern workspace
The design of the modern workspace has changed over the last few years. The requirement for creative and inspired workspaces has grown.
The creation of relaxing, comfortable workspaces has become an important feature in design for staff morale. It is now ranking alongside function and practicality. Research has shown that workplace design can even affect productivity.
You may work in a rented workspace or an older listed building. With this type of workspace you may have restrictions on what can or cannot be altered. Fear not. Design can be worked into these permanent features and can be used to advantageous results.
The following article “Contrasting design for the modern workspace” was first published in the Business Herald in June 2015.
Best coffee mugs for the workplace
Everyone likes to have their own drinking vessel at work. Whether you are a coffee drinker, tea drinker or prefer water or cold drinks you probably have your own workplace mug.
The following are a few favourites.
As office furniture and office chairs are a bit of a thing at Saxen this one had to go on the list. Everyone loves to have a spin on a swivel chair!
As green is a Saxen colour the green handle and rim on this mug particularly jumped out. However, you can opt for it with a plain white handle too or if you prefer there is a frosted version, a travel thermos style and even a stein!
This next mug is a definite for Saxen. Ruth is the chief in the Saxen accounts office. There is absolutely no way anyone would ever steal Ruth’s favourite mug for her cup of tea. Not even for a joke! You would definitely be at risk of not getting your wages at the month end!
This mug too like the one before is offered in a range of colours and styles.
Finally is this design your own mug. Boxes are provided so you can add in your own name and then check for coffee, tea or herbal. Also you can choose milk or sugar.
Think these would be ideal in the workplace if the tea/coffee maker is a bit forgetful. You would be certain to never get the wrong drink again!
Enjoy your cuppa!
