Workspaces have changed a lot in the last decade. Until then, offices were largely a sea of cubicles, poor lighting, and cost-cutting at every opportunity. Hardly the type of setting that inspired or energized. Interior design for offices has evolved a lot since then, moving toward open and collaborative workspaces, and spaces with better natural light, amenities and comforts. And so comes the rise of the art rental service.
It’s interesting, because long before companies started rethinking office design, there was art on the walls. Most times, the type of art you tend to see in hospitals: drab, nondescript, bland stuff, awkwardly spaced, never level, and actually counterproductive to the goal of making the space more inviting, exciting, and professional.
Some companies have purchased pieces for their spaces, later finding out that they really acquired a new job that no one wants to do: store, manage, rotate, and maintain art for the walls of the office.
We’ve spoken to companies that offered to give us the stuff they had up before just because they didn’t want to deal with it! And it’s true, once you acquire 20 or 30 framed pieces of art, at some point the tides will deem them unwanted, and you’ll have a project to tackle that has nothing to do with running your business.
