Office Furniture Every Space Needs
To ensure that your office space is used effectively and is a comfortable place to work, the right choice of office furniture is vital. At Flow Office, we understand the importance of well-designed and chosen office furniture and the impact that it can have on productivity. Working closely with our clients we create adaptable and versatile office spaces that make use of the latest insights and technology.
New office furniture is a considerable investment for any business so it’s important to get it right. What furniture does every office need, and how do you go about making the right choice for your space?
Your Office Essentials
Office desks are at the heart of every office. They come in a wide range of sizes, shapes and styles and increasingly make use of advanced technology and ergonomics to aid staff comfort. We spend a large part of our lives at work and most of that time will be spent sitting at our desks. As a result, they need to be as comfortable and practical as possible.
At Flow, our bespoke office furniture design service ensures that your furniture not only fits the space but also facilitates a better working environment for your staff.
Your office reception is the first impression many people will have when they visit your building. With this in mind ensuring that your reception area is stylish, welcoming and practical is crucial. The means through which this is achieved is through well-thought-out and designed office reception furniture.
Pods and Booths
Office pods and booths help bridge the gap between formal meeting rooms and open plan spaces and provide a flexible space to work. They offer a more intimate space allowing for informal discussions and idea-sharing. Pods and booths provide a more relaxed option than scheduling a formal meeting around a table in a fully separate room. They’re also great places for easy-going customer appointments as well as offering a quiet, private space for working, zoom meetings and making phone calls.
Collaboration furniture such as project tables are great for short meetings and sharing ideas. Soft seating and open pods have also become common sights in workplaces across the world, with more and more office spaces now featuring writeable surfaces where ideas can be laid down quickly. Mobile collaboration furniture also has a valuable role to play when it comes to promoting flexibility and sharing ideas. Furniture with in-built power sockets is becoming more popular making work environments more flexible and collaborative, ensuring devices can be charged and used with ease during discussions.
Your staff will spend large amounts of time sitting down, so the seating you choose will have a significant impact on the quality of their working lives, their comfort and ultimately their health. Breakout area furniture can help provide staff with a relaxing alternative to their desk, aiding creativity and overall well-being.
Call-centre staff are at the frontline of customer care and their working lives can be demanding. With that in mind, call-centre furniture should be comfortable, practical and well-designed to help staff morale and aid retention rates.
Keeping Your Office Safe
The range of office essentials when it comes to furniture has grown over the last couple of years because of the impact of Covid-19. Whereas once the very basics could be summarised as desks and chairs suitable for different parts of the office, you now need to factor in infection control measures.
Office furniture manufacturers and suppliers have been quick to respond to these changing demands. At Flow, we supply a range of social distancing furniture that allows for interaction and safe working while reducing the risk of infection.
Another vital component in ensuring that an office is as safe as possible over recent years has been office screen guards. While these have become commonplace over the last couple of years as a result of the pandemic, they also reduce the likelihood of other infections including the flu, common colds and stomach infections, all of which can have a positive impact on staff absence rates. particularly during the winter months.
At Flow, we approach office design from a holistic perspective, combining attractive design with functionality and user wellbeing.
