The Room of Thought

Thinking RFID

In the corporate office it is sometimes quite difficult to find a quiet place to think and let your mind explore new and creative ideas owing to the continual work activity permeating throughout the building.

The solution……

What about having a dedicated “Room of Thought” strategically placed in a central position within the building that can be easily accessed by all employees?

This room would comprise the following “thought enhancers”:

1. An array of luxurious sofas
To make the employee comfortable to stimulate some different thoughts.

2. A dark face mask
To eliminate any outside influences that may distract the thinker. Each mask would also be equipped with a facial moisturiser to ensure no thinking side-effects.

3. Ear Muffs
Not your standard everyday ear muffs, but ones that can be used to block out all annoying sounds, or can be fitted with a user selection of thought provoking tones to assist with the creativity journey.

4. Gourmet Food Chute
An individual chute positioned above each sofa that provides a selection of tasty snacks and beverages to maintain the thinker during their moments of inspiration.

5. Foot Feather
To ensure no employees doze off during their time of thinking, a machine would be placed at the end of each sofa that contains a large feather that would randomly touch the feet of the employee to maintain optimum maintenance of thought.

6. Voice Activated Memo
Rather than having to be interrupted to stop and write your ideas of innovation in a book, each sofa would come equipped with its own voice activated memo writer that would accurately record ideas of creativity. The user would just need to whisper these thoughts and the recorder would develop a precise transcript.

I’m sure that many businesses would see the benefit of this “Room of Thought” and with time the concept will be a standard design in many leading office layouts!

  1. I shall have these implanted in my imaginary office at once. Thank you, you’re brilliant! 🙂 but really that would be nice! Especially the food chute!

    • Thanks Margaret! I think that all food chutes need to have a supplementary feature that has at least 7 flavours of ice cream, with one of them being the compulsory green/lime….just in case it is required to assist the thinking process?

  2. How about a nice executive library? The smell of musty old books is always a good way to start the creative idea process!

    Can I please work in this amazing company of yours? 🙂
    LEGO employ a somewhat similar (but far less creative concept). Their HQ offices are full of colours and shapes and other weird and wonderful things, but their “Innovation Room” is completely white and everything is kept to a simple, minimalist style to encourage new thoughts to emerge.

    • “When” I start the company… can have the role of “VP of Thought Creation”……Lego sounds like an amazing place to work, and more importantly fun!

  4. That would so be my nap room. I will hire you to design my office when my company gets big enough to need one!
