We as a collective society are now, more aware of the climate change. We value our environment much more and realize the importance of building eco-friendly offices. Interior designers have a tremendous impact on the environment of a workspace because they decide which materials and products will be used. Thus Interior designers need to be more tuned to the variety of materials which reduce the ecological impact.
1. Energy Efficiency
Energy consumption is one of the major factors responsible for climate change. Commercial offices are responsible to generate a large amount of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Commercial interior designers can use innovation to reduce energy requirements. CIAO Green uses energy efficient designs, structures and materials to improve the usage of energy in offices. Our use of sensors to control lighting and air-conditioning inside the offices has been successful with all our clientele.
2. Use Proper Materials
In the process of reducing chemicals from office interior design, one must be cautious to find a balance between natural materials (wool, wood, stone etc.) and synthetic materials. Easily renewable materials such as fast-growing bamboo, recycled wood, reinventing old and useful furniture are some of the techniques which you can use. Next time you visit any restaurant, keep a keen eye on the ceiling and the furniture and you will be amazed at the various emerging trends.
3. Reduce Waste
Commercial interior designers at CIAO Green are responsible for their commitment to reducing waste. Recycle, Upcycle, Repurpose is our mantra. Our designers provide ergonomic designs for all office decor, thereby improving their functionality and making them sustainable. Using recycled products, office interior designers can lower the environmental impact of the workspaces.
4. Long-term planning
Leonardo Da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. This statement can be true in the case of modern office interior design. Quality over quantity, functionality over decoration, your office decor can be modern, technologically state-of-the-art and yet eco-friendly. This is achieved by making flexible and organic workspaces, allowing them to grow and change as time passes. CIAO Green makes sustainable and future-ready offices by choosing materials keeping in mind their usage. The wear and tear they will face and whether they can be recycled, upcycled or repurposed.
5. Health is Wealth
People spend most of their time indoors in offices, co-working spaces, and workspaces. Designing and building a healthy environment must be a commercial interior designer’s number 1 priority. Check this article wherein we have talked about this.
