Beneficial effects of design

Being surrounded by design promotes a positive and proactive environment.

This is what Stanford's Design Thinking Theory says. Methodology that is based on focusing relationships on sharinginteraction and well-being between people and the surrounding environment.
In addition, being surrounded by sophisticated, design environments, tidy and comfortable for the mind, as well as for the body, has beneficial effects on productivity, wellness and creativity.
