There is no one size fits all. The layout of your office has a big impact on the way your workers and clients perceive your values. No matter which office design concept is applied in your organization, whether the traditional cubicle or the in-trend open plan concept, they have a major impact on how the space feels to visitors and employees alike. You can also choose to integrate both. Full-height acoustic cubicles give users a sense of visual and acoustic privacy, crucial for deep thinking tasks where absolute focus and silence are needed. Consider other spaces for collaboration and large discussions, technology for the other open areas.
Brainstorming, identifying and listing down your values. This may help in more ways than you think – it helps to define the brief, and refocus on the principles that are most important to your work which then can be translated to the physical space.
Employees and clients may view your brand differently depending on the day to day nature of the business. Different ways of delivering the same message can be tailored in each area, so that there is consistency and relevance to the different audiences. An obvious client touchpoint would be the reception area, so this should reflect clearly what you do and who you are.
The right selection of furniture and décor can go a long way in representing your company’s values. For example, it can make your office feel comfortable, professional, trustworthy, fun. Explore ideas for your office, and you don’t need to follow the usual or traditional definitions of your industry. Mix it up a little. Imagine a legal office with elements of a boutique hotel or an art gallery. Co-working spaces have been leading the trend by bringing lifestyle into the workplace with café culture, the warmth from home, and a fresh new perspective on how and where we can work better.
Personalising your office can add a differentiating factor to your employees and clients, for example, thematic names for areas or spaces, or interesting shapes / profiles for panels for different areas. Here are some examples of how you could personalize furniture for your office featuring Decibel 43.

New Delhi which made news for being put together in a jaw dropping 49 days in an officially classified “heritage building” in the world’s sixth most expensive office market space. This pioneering Innov8 set the template for all future campuses which Dr. Malik distilled into 4 principles. “Firstly, location is crucial, we are always located in the heart of the city because this helps get the best mentors and develop it into the most vibrant community.
because of the dearth of inspiring workplaces in India. “When I started investing in startups, I realised that India has the worst offices in the world – so I thought, let’s focus on creating the best office spaces because we spend more than 50% of our time there,” enthuses Dr. Malik.
focus and productive environments within the campus. With these two in place, we then start creating a vibrant community, the third ingredient. Indians in general are introverts and have a strong sense of pride which stops them from talking directly to each other so within Innov8, we create a culture where people can interact with frequent events and community movements. Finally, technology, as we position ourselves as not a real estate or a design company, but a tech company.”
While all Innov8 campuses are built on those 4 guidelines, each Innov8 campus is unique and the design is developed based on the location’s context. For example, Innov8 Connaught Place, New Delhi has an open format campus and despite (or because of) its inner-city location has made space for a terrace with lush greenery. Innov8 Chandigarh which is located in India’s best planned city has an informal yet homely feel to cater to the diversity of its many freelancers. Being located in Bangalore the IT capital of India, Innov8 Koramangala provides closed formats with accents of local arts and crafts. As for Innov8 Boston House, Mumbai, which is located in India’s financial capital, the iconic Mumbai skyline is represented on its ceilings and it offers a rock climbing wall.
Innov8 Koramangala was designed with an abundance of greenery juxtaposed against the local arts and crafts of Bangalore.
Set in the IT capital of India, Innov8 Koramangala is slightly different in that it features a closed format campus.
“Designing a campus is a beautiful process. We transform a space and place a lot of weight on the comfort which is why all our campuses use Bristol workstations. All these elements create an ergonomically positive work environment which being a doctor I understand the importance of.”
Considering how inviting the campuses are, it’s no wonder they are always buzzing with activity like BBC’s 100 Women event celebrating the most powerful women in the world held in Connaught Place recently. Dr. Malik reveals that they have at least one event every three days to foster interaction and create a buzz both with external parties as well as internally. In fact, the respective Innov8s have also positively impacted the community around each campus. “Our campuses run at 100% occupancy and we also have a 100% retention rate. Innov8 represents entrepreneurship, good ideas should come to us and we are there to help them out. We do not care what sector you are in, we just want to help you to get your business off the ground. You don’t have to worry about your HR or food and beverage needs because we have an app where you can post what you require and our community managers will get it done. Focus on your work and we will take care of the rest,” explains Dr. Malik.
While it’s certainly impressive at how Dr. Malik and his team have created such amazing spaces and dynamic communities in 2 short years, his answer to what the most important lesson he’s learned during this process is typically inspiring: “I am not a management graduate but you do not need to know about management to run a business. What you need to know is that you should have the mastery on how to build a great product. All great companies in the world can’t have a sustainable business if they don’t have a great product. My aim is to build such a beautiful product that you don’t even have to market it. We will never compromise on the quality of the product because people may forget the cost but they always remember the quality.”
Another aspect that shaped the Liven is the culmination of Bristol’s 30+ years of knowledge and experience. “If you look at the Liven’s seat curvature, we’ve refined the profile of the back rest compared to our preceding chairs, spanning three previous generations of chairs. The team took into account all the troubleshooting that went into Liven’s predecessors and put it into this chair to such an advanced degree that it would not be unfair to say, it cannot get better than the Liven,” enthuses Verneker.
The team looked to automotive designs for inspiration, specifically the sleek, sensual lines of Italian sports cars which is reflected in the stepped upholstery of the seat and the high gloss piano black casing resembling the exterior of a car bonnet– all which imbue the Liven with a strong stance yet feels organic when occupied, rather like sitting in the driver’s seat of a luxury roadster.
From prototyping to a battery of tests, the results allow the Liven to comply with the international ANSI BIFMA standards.
The biggest challenge the designers faced was the conundrum of building different categories of chairs on one platform: “Most manufacturers provide a few configurations in one design but we wanted to allow Liven to have up to 10 different configurations with different price points and aesthetic requirements. In the end, we’ve managed to design a chair series that shares the same core system and is efficient production wise.”
The rationale for this sort of customisation? While the Liven is a bosses’ chair, the Liven designers anticipated how designers would require some consistency in style for bigger projects. “When designers choose chairs, they’ll need a range of chairs to fit not just in the CEO’s office but in the board room down to the secretary’s desk. They would require a chair that works in different scenarios and could be a task chair or a meeting chair so we have made many different options from the same concept. One would be hard pressed to find a chair in the United States and Europe that is quite so versatile,” says Vernekar.
Beyond its design, the Liven also allows for a wide variety of personalisation by virtue of the materials available ranging from aniline leather, PVC and fabric, something rather unusual as executive chairs are often very limited in this aspect. This versatility also extends to the Liven’s ergonomic features which include an adjustable backrest and arm rests and sliding seats, allowing for superior comfort for users of all shapes and sizes. It would not be unfair to say that despite being an executive chair, Liven has all the qualities of a very dynamic task chair.
The Liven was soft launched at the China International Furniture Fair in Guangzhou this April, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Dealers have been raving over its distinct looks and competitive price point. It has also been specified for several international and local M&C companies and rather interestingly, has proven particularly popular with doctor’s offices. Indeed, it would appear that whether in a board room or clinic, plush office or home study, having a Liven executive chair is a sure sign that you’ve arrived.
