Feeling At Home In The Office

The Days office furniture collection by Kokuyo adds a utilitarian aesthetic and casual touch to the workplace, ensuring employees feel at home while at work.

Feeling At Home In The Office


October 6th, 2016

Cosy offices with a homely and comfortable atmosphere can do wonders for the mental state. According to Japanese furniture company Kokuyo, this is a trend in the workplace sector that is currently on the rise.

One way to achieve this is to make designated spaces within the office feel welcoming with casual furnishing. Kokuyo conceived its Days office furniture line with this thought in mind. The collection has been designed based on the belief that a cosy and homely environment can enhance the comfort levels, creativity, and the work performance of employees in the long-run.

The furniture in the collection are made of wood and metal, and include stacking chairs, high stools, and a sofa for the lounge area. Flappable and stackable tables can be easily set up for use, or collapsed to be kept when not in use to save space.

The Days series is also aligned to Kokuyo’s activity based working (ABW) concept, which is based on the idea that an office setup should enable employees to work anywhere within the workplace, without being restricted to a certain area.

As employees today are known to spend more free time in the office relaxing and hanging out with fellow colleagues, social well-being is also a major consideration. Besides catering to different working styles, furniture pieces from the Days series are adaptable to various moments within the day, be it for brainstorming sessions or to grab a beer after work.

The functional yet casual pieces will revitalise any office environment, making the office a better place to work in and hang out at.
