If they have in fact been found to be useful, perhaps one idea to refine this a bit would be to use floor marking symbols like dashes, dots or corners. They're less aggressive looking but still provide some Set in Order and Standards. On another note, typical color standards utilize red/white for fire hazards or equipment such as a fire extinguisher. Just food for thought.

HI all,

  Actually the Floor tape at chairs introduced to keep the chairs in it's place after the usage by guests.

I personally do not see the need for marking the "chair area", or the cubicle outlines.  The chair outlines are inconsistent with the actual atmosphere of a working office space.  Perhaps if these desks and chairs were never used, there would be a necessity to mark where they should be stored. Are the cubicles randomly and frequently moved at all?  My opinion of "tape happy"....

I think marking around chairs is for 'not used' situation, while using chair one has to take it out of marked zone which I think is not suitable.
