The Delft Institute of Positive Design has got a new graduation assignment:
Enhancing Happiness in Office Surroundings
Office workers spend a substantial portion of their time in an office environment. This environment should be designed to be safe, efficient and comfortable. But can it also be deliberately designed to have a positive impact on their well-being? According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the workplace is “a priority setting for health promotion”. However, whether the design of offices is limited to promote physical health or whether it can also affect an office worker’s happiness remains to be explored. Can offices be designed to support the flourishing of the people who work in it? These questions inspired this graduation project, which is a cooperation between BMA Ergonomics and the Delft Institute of Positive Design.
