Workplace Trends: Towards a New Era of Work and Workplace
Tuesday 15 October, RIBA, London
Argenta Wellness, biophilic fine art photographic prints, bringing the beauty of nature to you.
Scientists and psychologists have identified the enormous benefits that living with nature confers on us, but it is only now that interior and exterior design is really starting to celebrate this progressive trend to enhance our well-being. We developed our biophilic range of fine art so it can support this movement and help improve lives of staff, patients, families.
Our ARGENTA is water- and fire-proof and can go anywhere, from surgery to recovery room, board room to nursery, wet-rooms to bedrooms. We also have sound-baffling imagery using Ecophon technology, murals, framed prints and living walls.
With over 200 photographs to chose from, we also create images bespoke.
Business in the Community’s Circular Office Initiative is about changing the way we design, use and operate our offices to eliminate waste and create more efficient, resilient spaces which contribute to the long-term sustainability of businesses and the wider economy, and to the wellbeing of occupants.
It is a change in mindset from sourcing products from virgin resources to sourcing circular solutions, and from throwing things away after we have made use of them to looking for opportunities to regenerate items at the end of their life.
Working with leading members – including Arup, JLL, Interface, Premier Sustain, PwC and Ricoh – we aim to inspire organisations to take a more circular approach to office resources, from the fabric of the building, to the fittings and furnishings and items used on a regular basis.

“Proportioning some of our work to stand-up work stations would do more than anything else to overcome sedentary decline. The office can be a kinetic, active, alert, vigorous environment.” Robert Propst – 1968.
