Bauhaus is one of the greatest design movements of the 20th century. Founded in 1919, the famous design school has influenced all kinds of cultural fields with its revolutionary ideas and theories. Its indelible mark has been stamped on art, design and architecture. But you dont need to be an artist to have heard about Bauhaus.

Until now Weve put together this Bauhaus infographic to summarize everything you need to know about the movement. Scroll down and let us take you on a Bauhaus journey, fromits principles and characteristics to the history, milestones and evolution of the Bauhaus movement in graphic design today.

How the Color of Your Office Impacts Productivity

May 14, 2019 Category: General

If your office walls are painted dull gray -- the coldcolorof warships, concrete and cubicles -- its time for a makeover. AUniversity of Texas studyfound that bland gray, beige and white offices induced feelings of sadness and depression, especially in women. Men, on the other hand, experienced similarly gloomy feelings in purple and orange workspaces. Similar scientific studies have shown that colors dont just change our moods, they also profoundly impact ourproductivity, for better and for worse. Thats why its best to decorate your workplace with a vibrant medley of stimulating hues that increase output and spark creativity. Low-wavelength colors, like restful green and calming blue -- two of the most common colors in Mother Natures palette -- improve efficiency and focus. They also lend an overall sense of well-being. Bottom line: If you want happier, more effective workers, green and blue are wise choices. Red, a high-wavelength color, is active, intense and alarming at times.

How to make open offices work for everyone

By Mandie Lee
January 14, 2019 Category: Article

Whoever thought that walls and doors could go out of style? Apparently, thats what has happened at offices nationwide. Seven in 10 American offices now have an open floor plan, rather than cubicles or private rooms. The open office aims to boost creativity, productivity and collaboration by making it easy for employees to interact. But that hasnt been the case for everybody. A study published this summer by researchers at Harvard Business School found that in-person interactions actually dropped more than 70 percent after workers moved from a cubicle to an open-plan workspace. Employee productivity also declined. Open offices and isolating cube farms arent our only two choices. Borrowing the best from both design approaches can give workers what theyre really after control and ownership of their workspace. When people decide for themselves where and how they work, theyre happier and more productive. That pays dividends for employees and employers alike. The mystique surrounding

is open office really better than cubicles

By Mandie Lee
June 28, 2018 Category: Open Office, Cubicles

An article exploring the difference (good and bad) between cubicles and open office plan. Forthe last fifteen years, cubicles have been slowly disappearing from the work environment. What was originally developed to put character into assembly line types of offices is now considered soulless and impersonal. The open office model replaces the cube system as the best formula for workplace synergy, aiming to improve collaboration and the exchange of ideas. Open offices and flexible workspaces are spreading all over the world. In the United States alone, seventy percent (70%) of all offices have low or no dividing walls, with information technology firms as early advocates of the open office model. Open Spaces: The Good and The Bad Open offices are cost effective, mainly by maximizing floor space and lessening furniture overhead. More employees can be assigned on a floor with open offices compared to a floor withcubicles. A better sense of community is achieved with open offices, along
