Behind the Scenes: Wilkhahn’s Office in Motion

Dynamic and human centred – the office of today is nothing like the office of one or two decades ago. Here’s how Wilkhahn is embracing new ways of working.

Wilkhahn’s Office for Motion is a new concept that welcomes a more fluid way of working – reflecting the greater trend throughout the globe and in Australia. Within the Office for Motion is a range of products that challenge the standard office as we know it.

Wilkhahn has presented its new state of the art collection of office furniture by a fun, quirky clip, with an upbeat sound track to match. The video showcases key products literally in motion – engaging in regular workplace courtship, even dancing. Task chairs, stools and tables have been animated to represent ‘office shenanigans’ and stereotypical office characters. From the illicit office romance, to the tough but fair manager, and the dreamer in long and tedious meetings.

The feeling of the video mirrors Wilkhahn’s strongly held belief that whoever designs furniture is in the business of designing human relations. This innovative German company has wholeheartedly embraced the changing office environment in its current offering to the Australian market enabling dynamic human interaction. Staying ahead of the ever evolving workplace is what made Wilkhahn the successful company it is today. And this is more true now than it ever was.
