Our Favourite New Standing Desks For An Office Update

26 May 2022

Ready For A Change?

As we approach the energising days of summer, many of us are looking to rennovate our office spaces and bring in fresh new designs. Fortunately, home and hybrid workers are not the only ones seeking a change! Innovation across the office furniture industry has truly taken off post-pandemic, and there are a range of adaptations to make the most of as you look to rework your working space.

Hybrid and remote working have become a standard, alongside a greater awareness of the health and productivity benefits of standing and ergonomic working. Thanks to this, our office layouts look almost unrecognisable from the work environments we were used to just 5 to 10 years ago. The focus on ergonomic support, collaboration, dynamism and flexibility is central. Whether a rethinking of a classic desk design, a subtle incorporation of modern tech into a traditional style, or something completely new, there are plenty of innovative new products to add to your workstation.

The Science Of Office Rennovation

Reviving our workspace, especially when incorporating exciting and health-boosting furniture, isn’t just lifting our mood with novel new surroundings. In fact, the psychology of interior design suggests that making time to facilitate an upgrade of your office space can do wonders for our mental health, and workplace productivity.

As Christele Harrouk explores for ArchDaily:

With most of our lives spent indoors, the space we occupy has a major role in our psychological behavior. Environmental psychology or Space psychology is, in fact, the interaction between people and the spaces they inhabit. Lighting, colors, configuration, scale, proportions, acoustics, and materials address the senses of the individual and generate a spectrum of feelings and practices.

From inducing warmth and safety, defining well-being, or creating a positive and efficient working environment, space can have a whole lot of impact on how we act or on what we feel...

Far from just looking pleasing, working in fresh environments that energise, focus, and encourage us has a direct impact on our subconscious which, in turn, directly effects your emotions, perceptions – and overall satisfaction in life. How does this work? Dave Alan Kopec, a professor at the New School of Architecture and Design in San Diego explains that the geometry of the spaces we occupy triggers a very specific section of our brain, which interacts with our perception of space, safety, comfort, and activity.

So, if you’ve been on the fence about that new office purchase you’ve been considering, or stuck on paint choices in your office for a while – this is your sign to make the change; for the project, and for your overall productivity, joy, and wellbeing.

What’s New This Season?

Vici Duplex Standing Desk

With so many of us working from home and sharing office spaces, perhaps even sharing work/study spaces with our children, the Vici Duplex Standing Desk is an absolute lifesaver. Incorporating a two-person adjacent desk layout with independent height adjustments, this unique, dual-zone height adjustable standing desk allows full user customisation for mulitple users at one time, enabling greater versatility that’s truly built for today’s living.

With four height memory presets, a sleek control panel, and adjustable desk legs and feet, you can truly make sure this desk fits exactly as you need it. Pressure-sensitive height-adjustment also makes changing formats a breeze; simply apply a downward pressure on the desktop to automatically trigger a 1.5 inch retraction and lock of the desk at this lower height.
