Abstract:

This experiment undertakes to determine the effects of a closed (versus an open) physical office environment on worker attitude, perception, and interpersonal relations. A closed environment provides for privacy but isolates employees; while, an increased interruptions. The results of this study suggest that the use of modular furniture systems may provide physical comfort (privacy) and still maintain an interactive climate for workers in an office setting.
