The Outdoor Workspace
The future of the office never looked so bright. The one-size-fits-all era and nine-to-five work environment is finally over. Thoughtful, intentional design is here to stay with health, wellbeing, and collaboration at the helm. The fact that nature nurtures, is well established. Closed office spaces with stifling air conditioning, and metal and glass structures often become a burden. No amount of artificial landscaping can provide the soothing effect and solace of nature. Years of research prove that being surrounded by nature increases wellbeing and productivity. As a brand making “tools for togetherness”, Extremis values the needs of employees, and having access to outdoor spaces is greater than ever.
Make the most of your outdoor workspace
What's the purpose of an office if not to bring colleagues together? After several months of a worldwide pandemic, we realized the true value of the office after our absence from it: togetherness. Sure, the office needs to provide the tools and technology for productivity, but leading companies worldwide are realizing the value in an organization is derived from its people and their ability to co-create and collaborate. Sometimes it's the inspiration you didn’t know you needed from a casual collision with a colleague during a coffee break that sparks the next big idea.
How do we bring back nature?
Do you enjoy listening to the birds chirping? Yes? And do you enjoy dipping your toes in a river? Is that a yes too? Then you probably enjoy a colorful patch of flowers? Yes?! It must be magic? Well it isn’t. It’s nature.
