Whether you have a modular office, or one with a permanent design, you need furniture that makes the office look good and enhances the working atmosphere for your employees. Whatever situation you are in, you will need to rethink just what type of furniture you need, and here is a look at some of the top office furniture design concepts for the year.
Today, companies are paying more attention to how their reception is furnished. Apart from the furniture used by the receptionist, you also have to think about that which will bemused by people visiting your office. The reception is the first thing that new visitors come across and it says a lot about your company. You should have a company logo, well emblazoned on the desk, which should be very impressive. You need traction counters, ergonomic chairs and keyboards, privacy panels, and lockable drawers. The desk can be open or have some form of partial partition; you want your clients to feel welcome and not segregated. The colors of the desk have to give a coordinated aesthetic feel to the reception, which gives a great first impression to all your visitors.
It is the norm to have office staff seated at their desks and this is why you need a traditional setup of workstation and chair. However, the design of the workstation should improve the productivity of your workers. Whether you are a large team, or a small outfit, you need to make sure that you furnish the office in a way that is beneficial to the operation of the business. Ensure that the chairs are comfortable to avoid exhaustion; this will improve productivity. The furniture should not be bulky, since this takes up more space and makes the office look cluttered. Research has shown that an office space should be open to enhance productivity and you need to ensure that your furniture embraces this trend.
Research has shown that sitting for too long is not healthy for anybody. If you want your team to add some variation to their working positions, you can incorporate the use of standing workstations. These are adjustable workstations which allow the worker to push back the chair, elevate the desk and continue working from a standing position. Scientists have proven a link between immobility and obesity, diabetes and a host of other illnesses. To make sure that your staff is healthy and they do the best that they possibly can, you should provide these desks. The desks also come with adjustable chairs, which can be raised to the height that you find in barstools. This allows the worker to sit even while stretching the legs. Alternatively, the worker can push back the chair and work from an unsupported standing position.
