The Power of Color

Color can seriously impact productivity. It seems obvious (especially if you are a designer or architect), but many people take the power of color for granted. The University of Texas actually conducted a study that found neutrals – think the typical white, gray, brown – negatively affected worker productivity and mood.

Unsurprisingly, bland, boring colors do little to spark creativity. But consistently, office desks, cubicles and partitions seem to rely heavily on these drab hues. So what can you do to spruce up your office vibes?

Whether you are designing a brand new office space or revamping your little corner in a sea of cubicles, we’ve got you covered. Below are some of our favorite eye-catching, colorful office products that are sure to help boost productivity!

Colorful Office Products

1) Area rug

Office rug

An area rug under a conference table or even your desk can tie a room together and adds some vibrancy to typically boring office floors. Remember, different colors evoke different emotions. Go moody with a deep red or calm the space down with some blue hues.

2) Wall tiles

Snip20170620_31

If you’ve got some white walls that can use a pop of color, there are some easy-to-install tiles that can seriously update the design game in your space. Tiles (like the new Topo Tiles) can come in a wide variety of colors to match your decor and can also help absorb sound (design-friendly & sound-friendly!)

3) Filing cabinet

A small addition that can go a long way: switch up your filing cabinet for something bright and eye-catching! If your cabinet is attached to your desk, don’t worry: there are some great DIY instructions on how to cover your filing cabinet with wallpaper (yes: WALLPAPER!) Easy peasy (for the most part) and a budget-friendly way to add colorful office products to your space.

4) Flower pots

Self-Watering+Ceramic+Pot+Planter

Who can’t use a little green in their space? When a plant wall isn’t an option, look no further than bright pots to hold your indoor plants. There are many out there that are colorful, and some even are self-watering! Sounds like the perfect colorful office product to us!

5) Office chairs

Similar to a filing cabinet, consider swapping out your boring black office chair for a bright colored (and still ergonomically friendly!) chair! Irene Turner makes unique colorful chair designed with your back and body in mind.

6) Partitions

EP-Partition-paling-542-office-meeting-table-Woven-Image-2

Throw up some “walls” with some bright colored partitions in an open office. This adds both color and privacy to the space (which are both very beneficial to creativity at times). So many partitions and systems come in a variety of colors, so matching decor and choosing inspiring colors shouldn’t be an issue.

7) Wall Prints & Pictures

A very budget friendly option to add some color to your space: throw up some prints! Whether you get a huge piece to hang in a lobby or conference room or some small pictures to pin to your cubicle wall, this is an easy solution to spice up the office.

Spruce Up Your Space

Color can really affect you, so be sure you are using colors correctly! There are even some online color charts you can use to help you plan your office vibes (if you aren’t a professional interior designer or architect). Color isn’t the only factor in a space that can affect creativity and productivity. Noise can dampen those too. Check out these tips to help improve the sound in your office space!

10 Inspiring Spaces with Bamboo Ceilings

When it comes to sustainable design materials for commercial projects, bamboo has become a go-to choice for architects and designers. Bamboo is a fast-growing grass providing more material per acre than any wood species.

It can be manufactured into sheets and planks for building purposes, or left in its cylindrical shape for use as a decorative element.

Below are 10 commercial spaces that have taken bamboo to a new place in structure and design.

Lotus and Bamboo Tea Room

The Lotus and Bamboo Tea Room in China features a ceiling that combines a wide range of materials, including bamboo. Instead of the bamboo being laid flat, the ends of the shoots point downward. Recessed lights are found inside the bamboo for an added calming effect, creating a tranquil design and soothing space.

Crawford Residence

In this home, bamboo veneer was used to add curves to this dynamic space. A hanging light fixture was installed, which draws attention to the bamboo detail in this residential kitchen.

El Guadual Classroom

The El Guadual is a childhood center in Columbia composed of classrooms, a dining hall, recreation centers, and other spaces made from bamboo materials. The ceiling in this classroom has thick bamboo supports and full bamboo rods, providing shade and protection from the full sunlight, while providing ventilation which keeps the interior cool.

Bird Wing Amphitheatre

In Hanoi, Vietnam, the Bird Wing Amphitheatre allows for live music shows and conferences by the pond. The open-air building features a roof entirely made of bamboo and rope. The stunning design creates the perfect natural backdrop for these events, and is completely eco-friendly. The audience can easily watch live entertainment and listen to the music, while experiencing the natural beauty of the bamboo structure.

Tang Palace Restaurant 

When dining in the Tang Palace Restaurant, prepare to be blown away! The stunning architectural designs of the ceiling gently arches down, connecting the floor. The space features an airy, open feeling to diners, but still provides a more intimate and private environment when eating.tang-palace-restaurant

Son La Restaurant 

The Son La Restaurant in Vietnam features open, high ceilings made from a type of bamboo called “luong,” which can grow up to lengths of 26 feet. The impressively tall ceilings are held up by the luong pillars, with crossed bamboo beams which create an intricate, squared effect.

Clothing Factory Office

Commercial businesses are also jumping into the bamboo movement. At the headquarters of a garment factory in Ho Chi Minh, the bamboo ceiling has a draped effect. The planks undulate, similar to the billowing folds of a dress. Above the ceiling, the lighting and mechanical systems equipment are housed in a bamboo structure.

wNw Cafe

Is there anything more relaxing than sitting in an open-air cafe while enjoying a nearby water feature? Designers of the wNw Cafe upped the ante, and built a cafe that surrounds an artificial lake. The stunningly designed ceiling is constructed with steel tensile beams and bamboo, while the roof maximizes airflow, keeping the customers cool during hotter days.

Office space

The design in this office space promotes a calm, relaxing feeling. Using material composed of Low Volatile Organic compounds has been found to reduce toxins in the air, improving the health and wellbeing of employees and other occupants in the space.

Outdoor Japanese Noodle Restaurant

Dining outside should be a pleasurable experience no matter what the weather is like. The incredible roof design at this outdoor Japanese noodle restaurant located in Jakarta has created a bamboo roof that is made up of large square umbrellas. Each umbrella roof section overlaps with the ones beside it, offering the restaurant guests protection from the sun and rain. If rain should fall, a clever bamboo gutter system redirects the water to the ground.

Semi-Permanent Cathedral

If you’re looking for stunning architectural feats, look no further. This semi-permanent cathedral located in Yogyakarta, Indonesia is made entirely of local materials, due to an earthquake that struck the region. This cathedral features an intricately wrought bamboo roof consisting of beams that crisscross each other. These beams support the ceiling as skylights brighten up the interior.

Water and Wind Cafe

The Water and Wind Cafe is unlike any structure you have seen. Built in Binh Duong, Vietnam, it is shaped as a gigantic dome, held together entirely by woven bamboo. There are no nails or other materials used to hold up the structure, and pendant lights drape down from the ceiling and create a circular frame around the skylight at the center of the ceiling. The exterior of the roof and walls are covered with a bush plant.

All around the globe, restaurant owners, building designers, and architects alike are taking advantage of the characteristics and sustainability features in bamboo building materials. These structures and environments are just a few of the intricate and stunning design concepts that can be created with bamboo.

It is now more important than ever in the design industry to begin sourcing products that are energy-efficient and meet building code requirements. Architects and designers already use bamboo for a variety of building projects because of its versatility and beauty.

7-sustainabledesign-products-for-the-responsible-designer-1Sustainability in architecture and interior design is nothing new, and more often is (thankfully) becoming the norm.

We’ve listed 7 of our favorite sustainable design products to help you create more healthy, environmentally conscious spaces.

1) Richlite Commercial Counter Tops

Made of cork (a rapidly renewable and sustainable product) and aluminum, these stools and chairs offer both indoor and outdoor seating. Emeco also adheres to strict environmentally conscious decisions in choosing materials and methods that go beyond just making their product.

5) Oceanside Glasstile

If you haven’t seen any of Ecovative’s sustainable products, you’re missing out. This company grows – yes, GROWS – certified sustainable products that help designers create healthy, non-toxic spaces.

Using just three ingredients (mycelium, hemp, and starch), Ecovative creates furniture for your home and office. Their Myco Board serves as non-toxic wood that can be molded into custom shapes and panels. Ideal eco-friendly design solution for a multitude of spaces!

coco_7_hr_f-cropped

These coco tiles are renewable, recycled and ready to use in your next indoor project! Available in two styles and 8 different earth tones, this sustainable product adds perfectly to the design and aesthetic of any neutral-toned or tropical-themed room.

Recycled from harvested coconuts, the husks turn into tiles that are either meshed-back or self-backed. These backings make installation easy using a low- or zero-VOC construction adhesive.

Selecting sustainable products thankfully gets easier and easier these days. More manufacturers feel a responsibility to the environment to create healthy, responsibly-produced products, which leaves a lot of options for designers and architects to choose from.

Bamboo Veneer: 17 Ideas for Architects & Designers that Go Beyond Flooring

As green building certifications like LEED and SEED go from bonus options to industry standards, it’s more important than ever before to begin sourcing products that meet these criteria. Architects and designers already use bamboo veneer for flooring, but bamboo can fit into building projects in several other areas as well. This fast-growing grass easily qualifies for LEED and green building certifications, and can make some beautiful statements at the same time.

These 17 ideas will help get your bamboo veneer projects off to a great start.

#1 Furniture of the Future

Bamboo Lumber for Funiture

#2 Controlled Design and Custom Imagery

Match your client’s details right down to the tiniest pieces of their décor. Different shades of bamboo veneer and panels can be mixed to provide you with depth of color for custom furnishings for bars and restaurants.

Bamboo Lumber for Vanities

#3 Create Vanities with a Clean, Modern Design

bamboo lumber for doors

#6 Pocket Doors You Won’t Want to Hide from View

Pocket doors are sometimes necessary in small spaces, but that doesn’t mean they have to be short on style as well. Bamboo panels and veneer make for the perfect pocket door with clean lines that make it appear as though the door is flowing straight into the wall.

bamboo lumber for walls

#7 Build to Suit, Build in Style

Use bamboo panels and veneer like any other building material to create displays and fixtures. The difference is in the beauty and depth the finished product will have compared to more conventional materials. With bamboo panels and veneer, there’s no need to invest in additional finishing techniques other than clearcoats to get the style you’re after.

bamboo lumber for beds

#8 Build a Bed with Built-in Storage

The best furniture offers both form and function. Bamboo panels and veneer are thin enough, yet durable enough to craft furnishings such as platform beds with built-in storage and headboards for the ultimate in bedroom style.

bamboo lumber for bathroom

#13 Clean and Modern Meets Deep and Intriguing

Kitchen cabinets built out of bamboo add interest to contemporary designs, and are easily customizable for personal use such as building open cabinets for displaying glassware.

Using bamboo veneer and panels give you the opportunity to coordinate every last detail in a room from pantry doors to sink base cabinets. Bamboo is incredibly versatile, allowing you to adapt it to your unique vision.
