Most companies are now opting for open-plan offices – whilst this is great for keeping the whole office as one, there are now more distractions than ever before. To have a private conversation or to get a bit of quiet time, solutions such as phone booths and curved seating options are usually the go-to choice… until now.
Last year Panasonic developed ‘Wear Space’ by partnering with a Japanese fashion designer.
‘Wear space’ is almost like human blinkers. The strip of flexible material wraps around the back of the head and covers the side of the eyes, blocking up to 60 percent of a wearer’s peripheral vision – this is designed to aid concentration by limiting your sense of sight and hearing via noise-cancelling technology which can be adjusted depending on the level of concentration you need.
Here at DeVono, we have Spotify connected via an iPad to allow us to have various genres of music playlists flowing through the office. To some this may seem like a cool idea but this could be a thing of the past.
Would you allow your employees to wear these around the office?
"We were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
"“We are delighted have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and commercial real estate framework that is not just fit-for-purpose now, it enables us space to grow in the future. DeVono has helped us to realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ long term home for the business.”"
"DeVono provided E.ON Ruhrgas with excellent support, guidance and valuable industry knowledge during the search for our new office location. Their service provided our Management Team with an extensive list of the options available both on and off the market so that we felt an informed decision could be made on our move. It is evident that DeVono is a dynamic company, who put the interests of the tenants as their sole priority in the London commercial office market place."
"I was impressed by the service I received from DeVono when it came to finding new offices. They considerably reduced the stress, hassle and time that this process would have otherwise involved and we are chuffed with the end result."
"Our second time using DeVono and again I was very impressed with the team - friendly, efficient and extremely commercial and honest. They understood the brief and worked hard to deliver the right property for our needs. In what was an unfamiliar area to me, they provided guidance on key issues and negotiated very good terms, highly recommendable."
