In studio this past week, we were talking about how the office environment and the furniture you work with can either increase or decrease productivity. This is a picture of an Acuity brand chair produced by Allsteel. Its just one of many from Allsteel and one of hundreds made by other manufactures that are meant to form to the body versus making the body form to it. This is shown to increase productivity in the work place. They come in a variety of shapes and body functions. They come in multiply styles including ultra modern to the very traditional executive chair. Chairs that make your body feel good and are comfortable make the employees preform better and work a lot better. IMO, why not choose a chair that is functional, stylish, ergonomic and can increase productivity? The only draw back to these chairs are that they tend to be on the more expensive side versus standard office chairs. Is this the future of the office? Making furniture to improve office life and productivity? I think yes.
