Case story

Work from home without compromising on style

The way we work has changed and fundamentally this new way of working will become the ‘norm’ for a large percentage of the population. Whether people will be permanently based working from home or splitting their time between the physical office environment and the home office.

There has and still is a focus on making people’s working space flexible, enabling agile working practices to be carried out much more efficiently.

Ergonomics focused on a desk rather than the chair has also become a priority when considering employees wellbeing.

Should this differ when people are working from home?

Leading global researcher Leeseman found that across 50,000 employees studied, only 34% of people had a designated work area in their home, and only 38% of people had space for a home office.

As stated above the issue most people have is space in their home and not wanting their home to resemble an office.

These were the considerations Consider 64 looked at when designing the Dining Desk.

Consider 64 are a family run London based commercial furniture consultancy. Ergonomics is at the heart of everything Consider 64 do. With the fundamental shift in how we work, Consider 64 wanted to demonstrate how a flexible, ergonomic environment can be achieved not only in the office but also at home.

Darren Andrews, Partner at Consider 64 stated that ‘the Dining Desk has been designed so that anyone can gain the health benefits of an ergonomic workstation at home, without compromising on looks or space’.

The Dining Desk is the perfect product to blend a creative and stimulating work environment with the comforts of home, creating the ideal solution to promote a healthy work-life balance.

LINAK® Electric Desk lift Columns are used in the sit-stand version of the Dining Desk to provide instant, and easy to use electric sit-stand capabilities.

The DPG control enables the user to adjust the height of the desk, whilst providing an integrated reminder function.
