Improve your open office space with plants4 June 2020
Dutch television show ‘de Monitor’ has found that an open office space is bad for the employee. Working in the open space with several employees is supposedly bad for concentration and could lead to various stress complaints, according to research among 90 company doctors. Fortunately, this so called ‘office garden’ can be made more bearable by placing plants or a green wall.
One of the most frequently mentioned problems in the television programme is the acoustics in the workplace. A ringing telephone, a call from colleagues passing by, an open space reverberates these sounds throughout the room. Research at TU Delft has shown that placing plants or a green wall has a significant effect on the reverberation time of sounds. By placing a green wall the sound was better absorbed. The LivePanel is a green wall that is easy to place in the room and thus directly improves the acoustics.
