Furniture to future-proof the workplace

How we work today is increasingly informing the look and feel of office furniture design. Wilkhahn makes for an excellent study.

The corporate eco-system is in the midst of a massive cultural shift. There is an increasing focus on creating supportive environments that help attract and retain top talent while also ensuring people can collaborate and innovate. After all, people want to work more flexibly and have workspaces that feel pleasant and comfortable. In the last few years, there has also been a monumental shift in the design of workplace furniture with products that feel more ergonomic, comfortable and are supportive of a wide variety of functions.

AT Ergonomic Chair

Wilkhahn, for example, has been at the forefront of workplace ergonomics, creating furniture focused on versatility, durability and support. Consider the AT Ergonomic chair, powered by Trimension®, a global benchmark for healthy three-dimensional seating.

Or, the electrical and height-adjustable Mobile Timetable Lift that can be used flexibly in a wide range of work settings like innovation rooms, for hot-desking or even sit-stand working.

In the case of the Wall Relief Landing, the design creates a welcoming atmosphere for quick catchups, especially where space is a constraint. The modules are sound absorbent and cosy to lean on.

Some of the brand’s other noteworthy designs include the Pommel Horse Seat ‘Sitzbock,’ ideal for casual seating, or the Occo 221 chair (designed by Jehs + Laub) suited for meeting, cafeteria or conference spaces.
