Workspace has completely transformed over the past 20 years. One of the most significant considerations is not just output and what can be calculated but also the value of the individual. What makes employees happy? How does a company support the individual, not just the position?
We were walking through the showroom one day with our Principal Bernard Brucha and discussed some concepts we recently fabricated. We began to reflect back on history’s forgotten workplace solutions. We began to ask what people have done in the past to provide privacy. Any respectable workspace design company would follow that conversation – “R.I.P. the cubical” and might event take a moment of silence in honor of the fallen design solution. Our concept focused on creating privacy when needed. We wanted to know if it was too much, or not enough. How do we prevent people from being boxed in again. We realized we were at a point where the workspace design community had begin questioning some of the significant shifts in office design. One of the biggest being the open floor plan. After 30 years, has the open floor plan begun to see its downfall?
As Bernard and team looked over a clients design that needed more privacy, we needed to figure out how to create a solution for an open floor issue. Bernard referred to the potential product as a boomerang product. The past had come almost full circle and we were just about to catch it. MASH is passionate about solving not only the return of privacy, but how it gets integrated into existing spaces efficiently.
Stay tuned to see what boomerang products we came up with!
