3 essential products for activity-based working

Activity-based working, or ABW in short, is revolutionising the way we approach office design. The focus is on flexible spaces that cater to the diverse and dynamic needs of today’s workforce. In this post-pandemic world, fixed workstations are a thing of the past. Employees want the freedom and autonomy to choose the spaces that best support their work at any given time.  

Okamura, a renowned leader in office furniture and workspace solutions, has developed a range of innovative products to support this shift in workplace requirements. Here are three essential products that elevate the office environment, boost productivity, and enhance overall employee experience.

Sphere Chair

The cornerstone of any activity-based working strategy is comfortable and adaptable seating. In the era of hybrid work, where employees alternate between on-site and remote work, Okamura’s Sphere Chair is a game-changer. Thanks to the innovative 3D Physical Fit Shell, the chair responds to individual seating needs, providing personalised support without the need for complicated adjustments. Whether you’re working for a few minutes or an extended session, fatigue-free comfort is guaranteed. The contemporary design and two-tone colouring of Sphere Chair make it a stylish addition to any office, creating a welcoming and casual workspace.

Work Carrier

In an activity-based working environment, effective collaboration is key. Okamura’s Work Carrier fosters seamless teamwork and communication with its dynamic features. Anchor tables of various heights, satellite table, work stool, bench stool, wagon and sofa come together in a layered design that provides a platform for various communication styles and tasks. The inclusion of castors on work stools makes it easy to transition from casual chats to productive discussions. Information sharing and idea exchange also become more efficient with the addition of Sprint’s monitor stand.

Okamura Lives Post + Beam

Designed to activate communication and accelerate team building, Okamura’s Lives Post + Beam features movable, fixed and full-fixed panels that effortlessly adjust to suit different activities, group sizes, and communication needs. They can even be integrated with monitors powered by Okamura’s OC portable battery for even greater versatility. The innovative angled rail enables easy movement of panels along the beam, while a ‘turning bay’ allows for panel flipping and rearranging. Choose from a wide range of panel types, colours, and accessories to suit your space’s purpose and style. Options include whiteboard panels, sound-absorbing felt panels, transparent acrylic boards, and more.
