In the bustling halls of Orgatec many innovations could be seen, but one company in particular took the classic sit-to-stand desk to all-new heights.
October 31st, 2018
We all know the perils of leading an overly sedentary lifestyle. Read: sitting at a desk for eight+ hours a day = not good. In the wake of this, the industry has been awash with sit-to-stand desking options. They vary greatly in style, technology and usability.
It’s in this environment that the globally connected ergonomic workplace design experts at Ergotron have released the new JŪV Wall system. Discovering the trials and tribulations that have arisen in many standard motorised sit-to-stand desk offerings, the JŪV wall can be seamlessly mounted to any type of environment and brings with it a wider range of height options, all with a non-electric movement mechanism.
The system is wall mountable, making it an easy product to specify in a retrofitting scenario. Previously unused walls or zones can now be reinvigorated as either meeting areas or dedicated desk spaces.
Other features that add to JŪV’s versatility are its clever cable concealment, which ensures a minimalist look, and its collapsible surface. Bringing a streamlined design that avoids floor supports, the JŪV fits easily into all kinds of working environments, while the collapsibility makes it perfect for small or bespoke floorplates.
The wide range of non-electric movement in the JŪV means that it can be crafted for all kinds of bodies, not just those that fall into the ‘average’ bucket. On top of this, by allowing people to quickly and seamlessly move an entire work surface throughout the day, the JŪV promotes wellness as a given.
It was this approach that drove Ergotron’s development of the JŪV wall mount, making it easy for companies to meet wellness criteria. “The JŪV wall mount brings new energy into the workplace, not only by incorporating beautiful design but also by helping businesses address their corporate wellness objectives by integrating natural movement into their employee workspaces,” shares Dana Lair, product development manager at Ergotron.
Ergotron has taken the traditional sit-to-stand desk and given it a new lease on life in more ways than one. The JŪV offers a clean design with an extended range of non-electric movement, all housed within a minimalistic, wall-mounted system.
