We have been hearing about it for a few years, but now relations between people are really being promoted in new office designs, often by taking cues from the domestic environment. Sometimes these interiors merely give a company a contemporary image; other times they have the more authentic intent of furthering a sharing-based style of work. Seeing that office workers are mostly sitting in front of a screen for long hours, it is necessary that breaks away from the machine be spent in relaxing places where colleagues can swap opinions, stop thinking about their job for a moment, and enjoy some real-life face time
