We each breathe over 10,000 liters of air every day. Do you know what’s inside that air? The Finnish company named 720° is able to measure it. Their project, at whose beginnings stood a Czech named Tomáš Novotný, is improving the atmosphere of offices and more with the power of big data.
How can you bring about the right thermal comfort, so that the temperature differences between the inside and outside of your building aren’t multiple degrees Celsius—or even dozens of degrees? You’ll find the answer in this interview for #MORETHANOFFICE. We’ve interviewed Lenka Procházková, the head of sales at High 5 Design, a company that designs a variety of interiors for their clients.
A people-packed office, stuffy air, and heat that won’t let you think. You want to open the window, it’s guarded by a teammate wrapped in a woolly sweater and furs. They immediately register your evil intentions and inform you in advance with their hostile glance that things will heat up if you try to cool it down. Is all this familiar to you? No matter whether you’re the fireplace tender or the window venter, these situations aren’t fun. Is there some ideal temperature that your whole office can agree on?
Just imagine. You’re not shivering with cold because your workmate turned on the AC. The air in the meeting room isn’t stuffy, and the light in the kitchen doesn’t burn your eyes. Wherever you go at your workplace, you have ideal conditions—they’re precisely the ones you prefer. That’s because you’re working at Office 3.0.
