Accordingly, Jenny built navigational elements into the design. From the “golden drawer” where keys and other important bits are stored to the distinctive “yellow table” where teams can gather. These features immediately serve as way-finding tools for employees and guests alike.
Jenny is leading the charge against an open-plan world. Having observed that rather than building teams, the constant interruption which comes from this setup can lead to resentment. She doesn’t want to see a return to cubicles, instead incorporating visual or acoustic thresholds depending on the requirements of the space help.
At Fjord, she went one step further, with the addition of flexible areas and furnishings. Just like a stage set, with moving sofas, tables and chairs (and a massive storeroom!), the team could create their own environment. We've seen the growing importance of flexibility within the workspace too, as discussed in our recent Trend Report.
