Coinciding with the start of the Clerkenwell Design Week, Chrom-Art is proud to launch its new collaboration with Actiu, leader in innovative design and manufacture of sustainable furniture for ‘cool working’ and public spaces, with presence in almost 100 countries.
Actiu is synonymous of active, curious and dynamic. And since the start of its journey in 1968, the company has not stopped reinventing itself and innovating. Thus it has gone from being home furniture maker to solution specialist for state-of-the-art work environments.
The space and its equipment have a decisive influence on the motivation, performance and health of people, being the second most important factor which determines job satisfaction, after wages. The quality of the work environment goes beyond responding effectively to the physical needs in all types of people, to provide spacious, bright and well equipped spaces that favor communication, learning and collaboration as well as opportunity to focus on individual work when required. A well-designed space can foster these connections and creative encounters.
‘Cool working’ by Actiu is an internal reflection which enables the design of work environments with the aim of improving the wellbeing of the people that inhabit them. It also focuses on boosting the efficiency and productivity of organisations.
The mind plays a vital role in an individual’s overall health and well-being. An atmosphere that supports a healthy mental state can have significant psychological and physical benefits. The right interventions can trigger good behavioural changes and positively impact mood, stress levels and psychosocial status.
Art has a power to alter spaces, to inspire, to positively influence thoughts and to balance feelings and emotions.
In this curatorial project, Chrom-Art presents multidisciplinary, innovative art works by eighteen exciting London artists, embracing the harmonious site specificity of the newly interpreted office space that breaks the rules of hierarchy for the sake of Netarchy, and responding to the new paradigms of TO BE in opposition to 'to Have', enhancing interconnectedness, LONG TERM JOURNEY and Intuition.
