Modern office furniture

Modern office furniture

Modern office furniture evokes clean lines in a bright open space and ensures the worker feels as comfortable as possible in their environment especially with designer office furniture. A happy worker is a productive worker!

Moving away from dreary old-fashioned brown desks and blue office chairs, modern office equipment is often white with dashes of colour provided by shelving, drawers and stationery receptacles. Desks are curved for maximum comfort and spacious rather than cramped. Modern office chairs are lightweight, comfortable, adjustable and come in a range of colours. There has also been a recent trend towards see-through acrylic to ensure an office looks as spacious as possible.

One nice idea I saw recently was the introduction of quick to install insulated office meeting pods with sliding doors to allow maximal use of space. Modern offices have floor to ceiling windows to maximise natural lighting and move away from fluorescent overhead lighting. In some creative agencies staff have their own individual daylight lamps and often an entire room designed to inspire Imagineering.

Multiple studies have shown long-term health benefits for workers if their office equipment is ergonomically arranged and many modern office arrangements take this into account. An ergonomic desk assessment will ensure that all equipment is positioned and spaced appropriately. For example a computer monitor will be positioned at the correct height and distance to avoid eye strain and shoulder hunching.

Many iterations of modern office furniture are also sustainable and made from recycled material as offices become more conscious of their carbon footprint. A modern office is usually interspersed with plants as studies have shown these reduce stress and promote wellbeing and performance. They also make the air healthier by removing toxins, dust and mould and reduce the need for air conditioning.
