Your Plug Problem – Solved

How many devices do you use through out your work day?

While some people can conduct business with just a smartphone, others (like me!) sit in front of multiple screens at once.  No matter how many devices and gadgets you personally use throughout the course of your work day, they most likely have one thing in common: The need for an electrical charge to juice them up.

If you’ve ever been frustrated by the fact that most electrical outlets can only serve two devices, you’re not alone. I use all five outlets on the four different extension cords that I own (three at home, one in my corporate office). In an attempt to tidy things up I invested in a power outlet upgrade, but I’ve been burned in the past.

For example, about a year ago I tried out a brand because it got a fancy write up in the Wall Street Journal, but I have to say I was sorely disappointed by the lack of devices that it can service (2 plus a USB) and it’s ability to stay put on the wall (It’s currently an eyesore on my floor).

Enter: a better solution to your plug problem! The PowerCube.

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 10.37.16 AM Unlike other extension cords that sprawl lifelessly on the ground taking up space, or that are “supposed to” stick like a magnet to your wall, this surge protector plugs right into your outlet allowing you to charge up to 6 devices instead of the traditional two.

This handy Rubik’s cube sized accessory is perfect for the device heavy, design conscious work space or home.  For example, in my kitchen I have a Carbon Monoxide detector that blocks both outlets though it only uses one.

But with the PowerCube that same outlet now accommodates a phone charger, a laptop cord, a landline plug-in AND has room for 2 USB chargers in addition to the Carbon counter.


powercube co2

Very useful!

The unit is beautifully designed to be both functional and elegant – and has won the Red Dot award for product design.

It also comes in two sizes, one with more length, like a traditional extension cord, but with the same Rubik’s cube sized outlet plug.  There are also several colors to choose from so you can coordinate with your office decor color palette.

Global Radio: A Gorgeous, Modern Office Renovation

Global Radio are the parent group of some of the UK’s largest radio stations, Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X and Gold. The Global Radio building is located in the West End, or more precisely Leicester Square. Leicester Square is of course synonymous with the UK entertainment industry and an extremely popular destination for tourists, where Hollywood film premieres happen and where some of the most well-known theatres in the land are situated.

Woodhouse Workspace were commissioned to deliver the project. Woodhouse Workspace are a family run office design and fitout firm with over 40 years’ experience working on commercial projects. The brief from Global Radio to Woodhouse was to project plan, fitout and design all eight floors of their building.

Working closely with Global Radio, Woodhouse worked to match the theme of breakout spaces, meeting rooms and offices to match the brand of each of the radio stations housed within the Global Radio building. One of the key objectives was to create workspaces which allowed workers to communicate and collaborate with more ease.

Just some of the aspects Woodhouse worked on were:

  • Entrance area with spiral staircase
  • Coffee bar and lounge areas
  • Flexible meeting spaces – including lecture theatre and conference rooms
  • Branded meeting rooms, with online room booking system
  • Informal breakout spaces and teapoints
  • Lift lobbies and staircases
  • Elegant modern washrooms, complete with all fittings
  • Sun-lit rooftop terrace, with retractable awnings and infra-red heaters

The whole fitout and design process had to be managed very carefully, ensuring minimal disruption for staff during the refurbishment of the building.

The feedback from the Head of Reception at Global Radio (Harry McGarry) in response to the new workspace is as follows:

“Footfall has increased considerably as staff want to bring clients to our office to show off the area and regional staff are travelling down to make use of the facilities. Feedback from all has, and continues to be, hugely positive and clients love the space we have. The video wall enables us to have company logo’s for client visits and the reception desk is always a wow. Guest numbers compared to last year are: January saw 1493 guests compared to 1218 last year, February saw 1550 compared to 1353, March saw 2096 compared to 1403. From my teams perspective the area is much more user friendly and is a very relaxing environment to work in.”

Comfortably busy: Office ergonomics for peak productivity

2Workplace trends are changing fast these days: from traditional offices, young business sharks recently moved to home-bound work environments, only to start booking seats in co-work hubs shortly thereon. The concept of the workplace designed with worker satisfaction in mind will probably continue to change in the years to come, but one thing is certain beyond doubt: companies that have realized the importance of office ergonomics for peak productivity have a bright future. But what is an ergonomic office, and which elements should a workplace have to qualify as such?

The ABC of ergonomics: Not just a comfy seat


Office ergonomics is a relatively broad field which draws on the findings from various disciplines such as biomechanics, engineering, psychology, industrial design, and physiology in order to “fit the job to the worker”. The reasoning behind office ergonomics is simple: employees who are comfortable during work hours stand lower risk of contracting occupational diseases, and their productivity is also higher compared to workers in conventional offices. Still, ergonomic design is not just a label that sells office furniture like hot cakes: it also spans lighting, soundproofing, and air conditioning as important factors that impact productivity and workplace comfort.

Light of corporate success: Ergonomic light


Internal lighting plays a major role in ergonomic office design: according to recent studies, open-floor workplaces which receive lots of natural light have a beneficial effect on employees’ mood and alertness, both of which are integral to higher output. Another research into indoor lighting and office productivity found that workers in offices with cooler (i.e. blue-enriched) light report better concentration, higher productivity, and improved overall wellbeing. The message is pretty clear: light quality and intensity can make or break business success, whether you are working from a home office or a shared workplace.

No back stress: Furniture that fits job requirements


The demand for ergonomic office furniture in Melbourne, New York, London, Moscow, Vienna, and Beijing alike is rising as more and more companies are waking up to the gains behind the superior-quality workstations and seating. Sit-to-stand desks, adjustable-height seating, chairs with inflatable armrests, back support, or memory foam lining are very popular these days, and various studies show that their use in office design can boost employees’ focus, comfort, safety, and productivity and reduce break frequency and absenteeism. Ergonomic furniture also fosters higher work engagement and morale, alleviates fatigue, promotes healthy posture, and reduces worker discomfort caused by sitting in an unnatural position for hours.

Sound of money rolling: Combating workplace noise


Noise is a given in most modern workplaces: keyboards clacking, phones buzzing, bass booming in coworker’s headphones, and colleagues’ chuckles and asides are all audio diversions getting in the way of productivity. Acoustic distractions can reduce workplace output by as many as 66%, which is why sound strategy is an important topic in office ergonomics. Sound-absorbing materials applied to the walls, floors, and ceilings can reduce noise level, while white noise and ambient background music or nature sounds emitted from high-quality systems can help mask the din of a busy workplace and replace it with tunes more conducive to peak productivity.

Take a deep breath: Air quality at work matters, too


Air quality is one more aspect of office ergonomics which needs to be fine-tuned for optimum output. High concentration of carbon dioxide can reduce alertness and make employees sleepy, while presence of pollutants such as volatile organic compounds, bacteria, and toxic chemicals can compromise workers’ health in the long run. Adding indoor plants to the office can increase productivity by 15-20%, while regular HVAC updates can help reduce absenteeism and improve long-term employee health and comfort, as well as work productivity and safety.

Office ergonomics is changing the modern workplace in more than one way, and for common good: employees can finally say Goodbye to occupational illnesses and companies can improve bottom line, halve absenteeism, and leverage peak productivity.

Color and Productivity: Putting Palettes to Work


“Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

My workplace is colorful,

And yours should be too!”

It is no secret that hues affect human mood, but did you know that the color palette can make or break workplace productivity? Though the choice of wall paints and furnishing tones will to a degree depend on cultural background, line of work, and overall corporate philosophy, there are a few general guidelines on how the office color palette that can help boost productivity and ensure optimal corporate results.

Blue for trust and teamwork


Although blues are not exactly a great shade to feel, from the point of color psychology, shades like aqua, teal, and sky blue are said to inspire trust, tranquility, and stability, which is why they are ideally suited for detail-oriented workplaces, such as accounting or legal offices. However, a monochromatic blue office can negatively impact workflow pace in the long run, which is why experts from Office Furniture Sydney suggest that walls painted in the calming shade should be combined with furnishings in a lively secondary hue such as red, yellow, or orange for an instant mood boost.

Green for ideas and brainstorming


The color that symbolizes growth and prosperity, green makes a great base color for workplaces where creativity and brainstorming are of vital importance – or that is at least what recent studies show. Still, an overly stimulating office backdrop can prove counter-productive as excess of vibrant details can get in the way of long-term focus, so a less saturated or muted green wall number may be a better idea than going all-out chartreuse or lime across workplace walls.

Yellow for creativity and zest


Another vibrant color that promotes mental faculties, yellow is an excellent wall paint choice for design studios and workplaces which require logical thinking and a steady flow of fresh ideas. Walls painted in soft or subdued yellow will visually enlarge a small office and inspire optimism (think of the effects of sunshine on human mood), but saturated yellow is highly reflective and can cause eye fatigue. For this reason, either paint the office walls in gentle yellow or, as office furniture specialists from JP office workstations recommend, use file cabinets, reception desks, and chairs in a vivid yellow shade to spice up a pastel background.

Red for power and fast pace

5Seeing red is neither a pretty or productivity-inducing prospect, unless you work in a gym or a McDonald’s restaurant. Red and orange symbolize passion, and revolution, inspiring dynamic movement, so they should be used sparingly as accent tones to spruce up a neutral or pastel background. In workplaces where fast-paced physical activity is required, however, orange and red furnishings can increase productivity and help preserve dynamics during long shifts.

Whites and pastels for order and focus


The neutral hue will work brilliantly in workplaces where attention to detail, silence, and orderliness are of utmost importance. On top of that, white is extremely versatile and it can be paired with any secondary color for a whiff of décor refreshment. Combined with furniture in pastel, yellow, baby blue, or orange tones, white will make a good wall paint choice for small workplaces as it creates a sense of added space.

Are you ready to paint your business headquarters in the colors of surefire success? Once you have chosen the primary office color based on industry and target workplace atmosphere, select a complementary hue from the color wheel for subtle contrast and stimulation. If possible, avoid dark hues and monochromatic décors as these can break work enthusiasm in a blink of an eye.  After all, your office should not be a place where you and your associates have to spend time in; it should be an inspiring spot where optimism, knowledge, experience, and teamwork stand united in pursuit of peak productivity and sustainable growth.

Perfect Your Home Office with the Help of Feng Shui

Working from home has many benefits but in order to really achieve your full work potential and make your place for work at home a proper home office, strategic distribution and arrangement of colors, details, supplies, etc. can help you improve your productivity and working environment altogether.

Office that is clearly separated from the resting area

This is the first rule to a good Feng Shui office. Basically, your home office should be located as far as possible from your bedroom. Having a separate entry can improve the work consciousness as well. If having a completely different room for your home office is not possible try to make a clear division from the rest of the house, and bedroom especially, with room dividers for example.

Natural light and plenty of fresh air

Having a lot of natural light in your home office affects your mood and working performance significantly. Therefore, try to organize your working space somewhere where there are enough windows that enable circulation of fresh air and proper lighting. If this, however, is not really possible, think about investing in proper lighting solution and bring in some fresh green plants that will not only help with purifying the air but will also help you calm down and relieve stress.

Position the desk properly

In order to foster a strong and confident feeling in your working area it is important to think about the best position of your desk that signifies your own power and strength in the office. According to Feng Shui principles, it is important to never turn your back to the doors while sitting at the desk or having it in line with the doors. Also, it would be wise to avoid facing the wall while working. If this is unavoidable, cover the wall with some effective and beautiful art.

Careful color selection

To achieve the perfect balance you wish to get upon entering your office, think carefully about the color of your walls because this can be very important. For example, you should avoid plain white color at all costs because it will  make you feel cold and burdened with work. Try different shades such as terracotta and earthy tones for bringing wealth and dealing with finances, soft green for a relaxed mood and those working with technology, or blue hues in jobs where you have to deal with a lot of stress, deadlines and details.  Surround yourself with different colors and pick one that suits your personality and professional goals the best.

Add effective details and accessories

Even if you value minimalistic style, everyone needs some small bits and pieces to personalize and customize their surroundings, especially the place where a lot of time during the day is spent such as a home office. Incorporate artwork, photos, ornaments, inspirational messages and any other accessories in your office that speak to you and make you think about your definite success and comfort while working.

Get rid of the clutter

Clutter can disturb your energy levels and bring chaos and disorganization in both your mind and work. Also, if you see clients in your home office, clutter will only make you look unprofessional and tardy. Therefore, install enough storage solutions and always try to organize your things perfectly so that there would be no negativity and difficulty in doing your job, when you take a look at your whole office or cannot find what you need immediately. Deciding to buy a safe can also add to the power and importance of your work and profession while providing you with a place to safely store and tidy important material and information.

Organizing your office in Feng Shui style needn’t be difficult since the main concept of Feng Shui comes from your own individuality, tastes and preferences. Envision your perfect working area and slowly start working towards making it real and perfectly suitable for your needs.

Introduce Serenity and Prosperity Into Your Office

Feng Shui is about creating a flow of energy that will help bring success into the office. However, getting there might be trouble in the beginning because you need to pay attention to a lot of various factors which will help steer the flow. Bear in mind that it is more than just a simple state of mind, as Feng Shui can help improve your overall office mood.

The Element of Life

Considering that Feng Shui will include many natural elements that surround you, there is no reason to leave out houseplants. Moreover, be sure to go with a selection of plants which will purify the air as it will look nice, provide you with fresh air and allow for a better flow of energy. However, try not to overdo it with having too many plants as it could clutter up the space, making it worse to concentrate and work in peace.


Organize Your Desk

Your office desk will be one of the most important pieces in the office you need to position right or you could be wasting some of the potential energy Feng Shui could bring. Remember to always position it against the door, to set yourself into the commanding position and to boost your career. Moreover, keep a clean desk surface to help focus on work better.

Mind Your Colour Choice

You can have fun when playing around with colours in Feng Shui, but, you have to be careful which ones you combine. Be mindful that not all of them can go together and that in many cases you should stay within a colour scheme to ensure maximum potency of energy. On the other hand, you have the opportunity to decorate your office with unique colourful items to attract even more energy in order to boost your career and life choices.

image 4{Image}

Clear the Clutter and Create a Pathway

Think of clutter in your office as a road block to the energies flowing. More than that, it is hard to move around to get any work done when you are inhibited. Be sure to clear clutter and to make a walking pathway to ensure that you can get work done without anything burdening you along the way. Furthermore, work on keeping your office clean, which will require a bit of maintenance after you leave the office and before you start work. It will be good for charging yourself with positive energy to get the day started well.

image 1{Image}

Check Water Works

If the plumbing in the company is damaged or blocked in any way, it will affect the overall effect of Feng Shui as well. Keep blocked drains to a minimum to avoid suffering negative energies, and that you can rest assured everyone is happy and motivated to work. Moreover, teach employees how to avoid clogging up pipes and ensure that water keeps flowing freely. Metaphorically, water represents life and prosperity and if it is blocked in any way, it will fail to provide you with enough energy to become successful.

The general idea of Feng Shui is more than just simple life philosophy. The pathways to let the energy flow are significant in order to allow for better and motivated work in the office. Furthermore, in essence, how you decorate and allow to work will affect your mood and will to better yourself. Keep in mind that a clean and clutter-free office will promote efficiency and project a good work etiquette to whoever visits or has to work together with you. Remember to keep your design simple but impactful to make the energies flow and to enhance your workplace.

Essential Tips for Buying Suitable Office Furniture

Businesses across industries require suitable furniture in their workplaces. Whether for a corporate office or for a business workshop, the right furniture helps workers to conduct their tasks conveniently. There are several factors that should be considered when companies plan on purchasing office furniture. Listed below are some essential tips that companies can consider for effective furnishing of their workplaces:

  1. Plan well: Planning is an important part when furnishing workplaces. Consider the requirements for furniture like desks, chairs, storage cabinets, mats, etc. The requirements would depend on the number of employees a business has and also the availability of space. Accordingly, companies should plan the type of furniture they need and also the quantity of furniture. Companies can also purchase office furniture packages for their workplaces from a number of furniture companies in the market.
  2. Find sellers: After analysing requirements for the quantity of furniture, companies should pick a genuine furniture seller.  Go for a well-recommended and popular furniture supplier. Thorough market research, comparing costs and quality can help organisations to find a genuine and cost-effective deal. It is also wise to go through the delivery and return policies mentioned by different furniture sellers along with warranty offered on products.
  3. Pick your style:  One can go for stylish executive office furniture for a modern décor in their workplace, or pick vibrant designer furniture for a quirky ambiance. The right interior design theme may also depend on your industry, for example, an advertising and a media company can purchase colourful plastic or metal furniture, while classic wooden office furniture would suit a serious law or insurance firm.

8 Office Interior Tips to Improve Your Office

Consider cost & quality:  Organisations should purchase furniture according to their allocated budget. Investing in quality products reduces the cost and burden of frequent repairs and replacements and thus can prove to be cost-effective for businesses in the long run.

There are several furniture companies that offer a variety of business furniture in the market. AJ Products is a furniture company that delivers quality furniture and equipment for different businesses. From beech office furniture packages to wood and metal furniture items, the company has various listings on their website.
