As the lockdown measures from all over the world are getting eased slowly, the main speculation that is striking every one of us is how will the post-lockdown workspaces look like? Well as prescribed by the medical experts of the world, that this pandemic is far from over and is likely to stay with us for a very long period of time and until the much-needed vaccine comes out, all of our needs to keep focusing on the cleanliness, maintaining social distance and wearing a mask. But offices are places of collaboration where we need to work in collaboration with our colleagues to brainstorm ideas for the successful completion of our tasks, so in a place like that, how can we maintain all of these? Undoubtedly it is extremely difficult for all of us to constantly be aware of our actions and stay in the moment and for that, a lot of changes are required to be taken. Not only just our deeply rooted lifelong habits regarding vagrant decisions and public and workplace behaviors, but a big change is also needed for the design of both public and private organizations to avoid any unwanted human behavior. Design can support the subconscious mind of your employees and help them to maintain social distancing in public and commercial spaces that will support the cause of personal hygiene and wellbeing. As we will need to maintain six feet far distance but at the same time, it is also required to not hamper the collaborating mindset. But how can carpet flooring support this cause?

More than just wayfinding
Carpet and flooring can be a great wayfinding tool but more than that it can also serve a larger purpose in impacting behavior. It can go much beyond that and help individuals to navigate space and make them aware of their role in keeping themselves and others safe. A crucial role is also played by flooring in creating psychological and physical security. It is a major design element that shapes out our experience, perception, and behavior.
