Nine to Five
Nine to Five is a series that is inspired by the high stress levels of office workers and perceived shortcomings of the contemporary office environment and their furnishings. The main focus of Nine to Five is to observe common stressors in the workplace and how it can be tackled through introducing reconsidered office objects that are created through a sincere contemplation of artistic concept and studio practice of making highly crafted and visually pleasing objects. This thesis will demonstrate how the works from the exhibition, Nine to Five, investigate shortcomings of the contemporary office workspace and the influence of organic elements on the health and productivity of workers. Through the process of creating artistic office objects that seek harmony between function and the use of natural materials, Nine to Five strives to improve comfort, visual pleasure, and wellbeing in the office.
