BEST WORKPLACE DESIGNS YOU'LL WISH TO WORK IN !

Workplace designs have never been that important or taken into consideration as much until the famous Google Headquarters' concepts set the trend. Now we have seen powerful corporate engagement in creating and transforming the workplace into a positive, unique, colorful, functional and friendly environment. People want to be proud of the company they work for, and companies on the other side want their employees to work in a friendly atmosphere, reduce their stress level, and inspire them through emotional and enjoyable designs. It is now more than a design trend, it is a representation of a culture, a mindset! See some of the top corporate designs below.

Environmentaly friendly and Fun – A Tire Chair you won’t get tired of!

As global warming and environmental issues  are becoming more important in our everyday life, we are all looking for that little something we can do to contribute to saving our environment.

As a designer I get to shop a lot...  and sometimes I fall on that special piece of furniture that makes a design uncommon!  

This week, I found a chair like no other.  It was hidden in a corner of the showroom, and it surely didn’t look like any of the other furniture around. The particularity of this chair is that it is made of recycled tire.

Usually this recycled material would take more carbon footprint to be re-processed to the original material to be reused. If not, it usually looks amateur. 

This tire chair has in fact, been through the minimum process. An artistic touch to the finish on the surface has transformed this unattractive and sometimes smelly material in a low maintenance and comfortable chair.

This unusually looking chair can be used  outdoor, because it is water proof. It only needs a wipe from time to time. 

You can even request a different pattern, or if you have your own artist to work with, you can order it raw (in black). The rubber also gives you a very welcoming back and seat surface in comparison with a lot of outdoor plastic chairs.

The Tire Chair: Functional, Comfortable, Low Maintenance and most of all Environmental Friendly and Fun!!
