It’s evident the moment you enter Beedocs, a cozy office located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, that music is an important aspect of the work life for the Beedocs team. They work hard at creating software that develops and supports 3D timeline for Mac OSX.
A Pro-ject Xpression III turntable, Peachtree iNova, and a pair of Peachtree Design 5loudspeakers rest atop a stylish cabinet at the far end of the office. Open the cabinet doors and you will reveal a healthy LP collection, and a tucked-away MacMini controlled by an iPad via Apple’s free Remote App.
Adam Behringer, the founder of Beedocs, wanted to have a music system that integrated with the décor of his new office, and which would also echo the simplicity and elegance a Mac user is familiar with. Based on this criteria, the rosewood-finished Peachtree iNovaand Design 5 speaker combo was a great choice for the office to enjoy music from their iTunes library. And since the office is located in the same building as local record storeBop Street, a lunchtime browse for vinyl can result in an afternoon of discovering classics old and new by spinning up the Pro-ject turntable.
Is your office or workplace in need of some life and energy? Take a cue from Beedocs, and add some music! Definitive can help you (or your boss!) add a quality music system to your space. While still somewhat inconclusive, some studies show that certain types of music listening while working increases productivity (I’ll vouch for that!), and there’s no doubt it encourages creativity as well.
