The use of art, ornaments and plants
The use of art, whether commissions of professional artists or the display of work by students within your organisation, can help to create a comfortable environment. Other attractive features such as ornaments and plants can also add to the general ambience of the space. You may feel that putting delicate objets d’artin areas where there is a high volume of users may be dangerous with regard to potential breakages but anecdotal evidence suggests where users feel ownership of a space they also feel protective of it and the fixtures and fittings within it.
Our Flickr Photo Gallery contains images from a range of institutions showing examples of art, plants, ornaments and other accessories.
