Irony, amazing and irreverent signs give the workplace seating a fresher and more relaxed image.
We have seen football tables and various kind of games in break areas, now playfulness becomes part of the furniture: game and functionality come together to give life to new funny ways of sitting in the office.
Less restricted and more suited, friendly ways to share ideas. More relaxed, informal and anti-stress postures inspiring creativity and happiness.
The outbreak of swings (how much had we fun on the swings when we were kids?) is a real fact at Orgatec.
But also seesaws, ball-shaped poufs, or “horses” for gymnastics to sit astride. The new functional poufs integrate backs, worktops and storage compartments.
Stools, high and low, with or without back, are contaminated by the swing too, and have dynamic instead fixed bases.
Because the outdoor office is already a well-established trend, even the outdoor furniture came in the workplace, or the coolest office terraces perfect for outdoor meetings.
Some sofas where to lie also appear … if the bed enters the office the last taboo is overtook!
