Art exchange

Last year, a study from the British Council for Offices found that over 90% of employees believe that featuring art prominently in the workplace boosts overall productivity, while 86% of those surveyed explicitly agreed that art is “more relevant than ever” in today’s work environment.

Fortunately, times are changing and the corporate world is beginning to realise the tremendous benefits to decorating their workplaces with art, particularly original, abstract works.

Prices range from approx £50-£65 per month for a large works.

While the reasons to display artwork in the office are endless, here are just five:

1. Positive first impressions

A well-placed piece of art can greatly affect a customer’s initial view of your place of business. The difference between a waiting room with no art and one with a few strategically placed pieces of intriguing art is palpable. The former suggests that the practice, at best, has fallen on hard times, or at worst, doesn’t care at all about the comfort of their customers. The latter, meanwhile, bespeaks a certain class and sophistication, especially if particularly unique, vibrant pieces are chosen.

2. Inspiring creativity

According to an article from Virtual Strategy Magazine, innovative art installations can lead to innovation in turn. Employees are more likely to feel inspired and motivated in an office that demonstrates innovation visually, and art – abstract art in particular - is the easiest way to do that. While there are a number of hypotheses as to why this is the case, most managers agree that it has to do with perceptions of value: art in the workplace suggests that the employer values creativity, and this encourages employees to themselves innovate.

3. Communicate

One of the most interesting trends in office art, particularly in high end places of business, is the use of art to communicate company values. This can be as subtle and abstract or simple and clean as the employer likes: a company that values the environment , theming work by the company colours , while those that hold their corporate history close might prefer a painting inspired by the company’s founding. All are equally valid when it comes to art, and can prove equally inspiring to employees and managers alike.

4. Enhance creditability & your office space!

To put it frankly, art is extremely cool right now. Right now more than ever before, there’s a focus on creating fun, exciting work environments to entice the best and brightest employees. Bare walls seem drab and wretched, while halls flanked with fun and exciting pieces of art make an otherwise unremarkable office come alive with character. This is where it pays dividends to choose unique pieces of art, rather than the sort of mass produced office art one sometimes sees in office supply stores–those fade into the background quickly, while unique pieces stick in the mind and make the workplace stand out in potential clients' memories.

5. It’s easy!

Rather than spending hours individually picking and choosing different pieces to showcase, and then spending hundreds of pounds purchasing them, our ‘rental service’ will allows art to become more accessible were 50% of the value of the painting is paid over a 12mths basis with the option after that time to continue paying to own the work, exchange the work And start the rental process again or pay off the remaining balance and own the artwork outright (or simply hand the work back!) . Each piece or collection will brings together styles to carefully evoke certain emotions or themes, while giving your office a distinctively cool, cutting-edge, modern appearance.
