A thriving workplace is by design
We spend a lot of time in the workplace, be they offices, classrooms, or places of worship or hospitality. And most of us can attest to just how important that space is for our wellbeing. Whether it’s the kitchen area, the desk arrangement, the lighting, or the colours in the reception, we interact with our working environments, both consciously and subconsciously.
And there’s no time the workplace is more important than now, as workers across the country are slowly moving back into it, in a very different kind of way from before.
As an employer, office/workplace solutions and design can make all the difference to your employees; their productivity, their satisfaction, their retention.
As an employee, the workspace you find yourself in can often be what draws the line between having good and bad days.
Things happen for a reason
When I founded Mx2 interiors, I was having a lot of bad days. A lot. In fact, I was so unhappy at work that for a long time, I had to stop working altogether. My working career in my then-workplace was about speed. Keeping pace. Closing sales. Reaching for higher commissions in the ever-churning corporate wheel.
Employee happiness? No.
Even back then, my conversations with prospects had a tendency to drift to design and solutions as opposed to the number of desks or chairs I was trying to sell them.
Why do you need 100 desks just because you have 100 people working at your office?
What environment are you hoping to create for your employees?
Great workplace environments are not just for the wealthy…!
Mx2 Interiors came to life as I came back to it 2 years later, with a very simple idea in mind:
All interiors should be happy places.
When they are, all kinds of on-paper numbers magic happens. Employees stay for longer. Productivity grows sustainably. More people cross the threshold. The business ultimately thrives.
Now, all of those things sound great. Making them happen in real life for real businesses is a matter of comprehensive solution-mapping. I know that a lot of the time it feels overwhelming or even incomprehensible.
But the beautiful thing is, there’s always a solution.
Good design is not just about how it looks
No matter how impossible it seems to get that perfect workplace sorted for yourself and your employees or tenants, the solution is there. A comfortable, beautiful, and functional environment that ultimately supports the business in getting it to where it wants to go.
Mx2 is about uncovering that golden middle way; fitting all the pieces of the workplace puzzle together.
That’s why I love my job now.
We’re not just selling desks and chairs. We’re helping create entire working experiences for people. That’s what good fit-outs are about. Drawing up that line between good and bad days at work and making sure they wind up on the right side of it.
Why make life harder than it already is?
Your job is hard enough, add a re-fit or relocation onto your workload & that stress multiplies. Our aim is simple; make life as calm & as enjoyable as possible. If your project is calm & structured, then we know you should be too. So, when clients say they never thought in their wildest dreams we could make what we’ve just made happen a reality.
When we hand them back their keys and everything down to the last detail is carefully and purposefully planned out.
When we can see how what we’ve just created might actually make someone happier going into work.
Whether you’ve done it a million times before or just dipping your toe in the interior fit out design waters, the experience of finding and moulding the perfect solution should feel easy.
Let’s create that space together.
