 Interior Design Advice You can Learn from Beats

Just this week Apple bought Beats, an electronic and technology company, for $ 3 billion dollars. Originally it was reported that Apple would buy Beats from rapper turned entrepreneur Dr. Dre for $3.2 billion. Beats is the biggest acquisition thus far by Apple, but that’s not the impressive news.

What inspired Apple to buy Beats?

You might be surprised, but the office environment played a major role in closing the Beats deal. The interior design and layout of the Beats office is very impressive because it encourages work collaboration. In other words, the layout helps build up teamwork. Beats has a very open office space theme. The office environment is very fluid and flexible to help employees get creativity while staying while connected with co-workers. When business teams stay connected, they can truly help a business thrive because workers can work independently while being well prepared to collaborate at any time. Remember, a healthy work environment gives workers the opportunity to help each other while working effectively as individuals.

Even conference rooms at Beats are open office spaces. For example, the Beats conference rooms have glass walls for utmost transparency, while bringing in plenty of natural light.

The best work environments offer comfortable seating. You can get the best comfort for your money by purchasing ergonomic chairs and ergonomic furniture. It’s better to collaborate in-person than via a digital platform because people prefer personal experiences over impersonal experiences.

Integration. Creativity. Collective. All three are important in an office environment. American Design Associates can handle your office interior design while consulting you on the best office furniture for your specific work environment.
