IDEO is more known for its sophisticated product and industrial design, but i really liked their Personal Skies installation at the Moma (way back in 2001, but who cares).
“Cut Skies/Under Someone’s Sky recognizes how the sky affects our mood, lighting a workspace with images of the sky projected onto a light panel suspended above a table. Cut Skies allows the visitor to choose a sky–from sunny blue to rainy gray–to enhance the feeling of the moment. Under Someone’s Sky creates a powerful experience of shared environment by showing the sky that is above the person at the far end of a phone call.”
I don´t know how this would work out in an office, but it´s still a intriguing concept and experience.
