Bringing the outside in…February 7, 2017
From our office in Washington, the amh team have been working with customers across the UK for over 33 years in office design, fit out and furniture. We make sure our customers, from small to large, have a workspace they love.
Office design is a forever changing landscape. Work space, meeting space, break out areas, collaboration zones, relaxation space and play space are becoming the norm to consider in most designs.
One current trend growing at speed is ‘biophilic design’ which is linked to our desire to connect with nature in our workplace. This has been reflected with Pantone announcing their colour of the year for 2017 as ‘greenery’.
According to Pantone, greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
Introducing green to your office can be simple. From wallcovering to a statement piece of furniture, you can quickly bring a touch of nature into your workspace. Check out some of our current favourites.
This ‘preserved moss wall’ from our friends at Vantage most definitely brings the outside in and makes a stunning feature wall.
Their horticultural experts have carefully treated the moss so that it retains its softness, vibrancy and aroma, but it doesn’t need watering to ensure it thrives. The result is a visually striking solution that creates an unparalleled wow factor in any internal environment. All this with minimal fuss!
