An elegant, luxe workspace for Capital Sprints
The DSGN Studio has developed two schemes in one for the investment and advisory company, using artwork and sculptural elements to create a minimal, quietly confident space.
Flexible Workspace provider x+why has announced that it is installing Zoom Booths in its office spaces as part of a range of post-coronavirus initiatives designed to encourage people back into the office.
Smaller meeting rooms designed for teams taking video conferencing calls have been introduced, with the fabled phone booths now getting a makeover and being turned in to Zoom Booths.
Zoom Booths will be fitted with perimeter lighting to get rid of shadows under the eyes, while acoustic performance will be paramount and backdrops will be designed to avoid the silhouetting that white walls can cause.
In anticipation of a move toward companies taking smaller private offices, as people continue to part work from home, x+why has introduced large flexible collaboration rooms – called Mission Rooms – to allow people to convene on the occasions that everyone is in the office.
Creative Director, Phil Nevin, says: ‘Video calls are here to stay, which is a good thing. But they are just not going to work in an open plan office setting. Not only will they distract colleagues, but the acoustics will be terrible and distracting for those on the other end of the call too. Smaller, more private spaces to make video calls are now essential.’
