Earlier we pointed out the importance of comfort in employee satisfaction and overall productivity. One of our favorite trending products is the height-adjustable table. This desking solution provides a simple switch between sitting and standing postures throughout the day, perfect for supporting those employee’s physical comfort needs. In a successful office, “the focus should be on the well-being of the individual, even in shared workspaces.”

One of our designers currently utilizes the height-adjustable table from Kimball Priority in our showroom, pictured here. The push of a button simply brings the work surface to the perfect height for standing or sitting, promoting motion in the workplace known to be beneficial for health. Kimball says, “A genuinely productive and dynamic work environment doesn’t have to stop short at facilitating the free passage of ideas from place to place. It can also focus on the physical needs of people to change things up (or down) throughout the day.”

With Priority, healthy functionality can maintain a sleek and stylish look at the same time.

In addition to employee-friendly desks, the right chair can make a world of difference. We love the Freedom chair by Niels Diffrient from Humanscale, shown here. Designed to give the maximum ergonomic benefit, once the chair is adjusted to the sitter no further fixes are needed. Winner of ten design awards to date, the Freedom chair was made to encourage and support spontaneous movements without locks or tension springs to mess with. Special mechanisms automatically adjust to support the body throughout the day while its position sensitive headrest cradles the head while reclining and moves out of the way when sitting upright. Talk about the perfect chair for comfortable posture and essential body movement!

Come see these ergonomic picks in action in our working showroom!
