Our office spaces are riddled with interruptions and distractions, the commute is usually mundane and uninspiring and our time is chopped and sprinkled between the many tasks we are trying to wrangle at the same time. We stay stressed continuously, and in this stress, we forget to take a minute to just breathe. And then, at the end of the day, we wonder, where did the day disappear? I believe that work should bring us joy. Our workday should be exciting and going to work should ideally be something we look forward to, every morning we wake up. We should have the freedom to choose how we work and what we work with. “Calm at Work” is an 18 week interaction design project, exploring how we might make the experience at work, just a bit more calm. The project aims to explore the different challenges workers face at work to explore if it could be better. Through desk research, observations, interviews and probes the project uncovers a few challenges, some of which were then explored using product sketches. This report presents the journey, the key insights, the challenges and the results of the exploration.
