The psychology behind our furnishing solutions

Social facilitation is the tendency for people to do better on simple tasks when in the presence of other people

This implies that, whenever people are being watched by others, they will do well on things that they are already good at doing. The idea that social evaluation has an impact on performance sparked interest in the psychological reasons behind this phenomenon, leading to further research surrounding the social facilitation theory and its implications

We are trying to relate this phenomenon to the creation of an environment through fixtures and fittings

Social facilitation has occasionally been attributed to the fact that certain people are more susceptible to social influence, with the argument that person factors can make these people more aware of evaluation. These personality characteristics may cause some people to be more greatly affected by the presence of their observers.

Create spaces for group or solo study

The role of social facilitation is important to consider in social situations, because it implies that people’s performance does not rely solely on their abilities, but is also impacted by the internal awareness of being evaluated. Performance can be greatly affected by situation factors, thus making it possible to entirely alter the outcome of a situation. This can be very important when considering how anyone will perform under evaluation and how to potentially prepare for those situations. 

How are LOFT Interiors embracing social facilitation in their furnishing solutions?
