Atul Bansal is co-founder and partner at Sheila Bird Group and the man behind high-profile offices including Missguided, Federation House, Social Chain and Peak.

With 32 years in the industry, Atul’s innovative approach to design stems from an understanding of interaction and use of the work place and how this is directly linked to productivity and thought generation.

Atul believes that inspiration for interaction is important for many successful businesses and needs to be nurtured in the design of their spaces in order to support their greatest asset: their staff.

Happiness stops negative thoughts and behaviours. It also encourages people to engage, focus, learn, socialise, gain fulfilment, collaborate and all in a way that feels natural. Space can empower a business and people that work in it and give staff a place to feel proud of encouraging creativity.
