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?
"DeVono did an excellent job for On Demand from beginning to end. You showed patience as our requirements changed and understood what we looking for at each stage of the process. I would be very happy to recommend your services to other clients and would single out the first class service provided by your relocation team for particular praise."
"“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.”"
"It was a pleasure working with DeVono - the team were very professional, knowledgeable and provided the right advice when needed. The most important aspect was that you took time to understand what we were after rather than position everything on the market. I would not hesitate recommending you and your firm."
"We really appreciated your help. We got the result we wanted at a speed we could never have achieved ourselves and we're very pleased that we engaged you."
"We’ve worked with DeVono for several years through various stages of our evolution. We’ve had to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head on including adjusting our real estate strategy. To understand our options, and how best to progress we turned once again to DeVono. They were always there, ready to guide us to ensure we got the best outcome for the business."
