Office Trends 2010: What your office furniture should be doing for you

As responsibilities are consolidated and the business environment shrinks, office furniture is becoming more focused on making office workers more efficient and comfortable. Here are three things your furniture should be doing for you this year:

1. Affordable Comfort: No More Ergonomics vs Economics

Office workers spend more time at their desks than ever before, so ergonomic seating is a must. That used to mean a lot of additional costs – but not today. So much of today’s furniture is designed to be ergonomically sound… and economically appealing, too!

A Great Example: HON Ignition

Application: Seating

Unify your office with a single look and provide a seating option for every application, from reception to task chairs to conference rooms. Plus, give each person the features they want in a chair, providing the highest level of comfort  – all without the hefty price tag.

2. Customizable: Managing Generations
As more young people enter the workforce and seasoned workers waiting longer to retire, many offices have two or three generations collaborating in a single work environment. To accommodate their vastly different work styles, furniture should be customizable.

A Great Example: Allsteel Stride
Systems Furniture

Stride is a complete platform of surfaces, storage, and space division. Multiple options for storage and organization adapts to the worker, rather than the worker adapting to the space, making it a more personalized and productive place to work – for different tasks, job functions and work styles. Plus, Stride focuses on sustainable practices every step of the way, so it’s a “green” product, too.

3. Multi-Tasking: Do More With Less
In a tight economy, manufacturers know your furniture has to multi-task as much as you do, so you get the most bang for your buck.

A Great Example:
HON Vicinity

It does it all… storage, desking, workspaces and more!

A flexible full-office solution, Vicinity can be used from the reception area, to offices, to the copy room and everything in between. It’s expandable, reconfigurable, and completely customizable to the space it’s in and the people using it.
