Wireframe Manufacturer | 2023 Trends in the Office Furniture Industry
The office furniture industry can be a tough industry to develop innovative ideas for. You might think “a chair is just a chair, what more can be done to make it more innovative?”. The answer is that lots can be done to add more function to chairs for schools, hospitals, and offices!
Wiretech Fabricators is located in Wisconsin so we are lucky to have innovative office furniture solutions manufacturers right in our backyard! Here are some of features of the latest technology brought to the office furniture manufacturing industry from top office furniture manufacturers:
- Nesting Chairs: We all know that basic school or office furniture can be stacked or flipped over and set on tables but nesting chairs give the ability to store the chairs neatly against eachother similar to the function of a shopping carts being pushed up against the other in a cart coral. This is done with a simple pivoting mechanism to flip the seat up and wheels to easily slide one against the other making them easy to put away versus having to lift and stack the chairs.
- Standing Desks: So many office have switched to standing desks for all office employees. Here are some of the benefits of a standing desk from healthline.com:
- Lowers the risk of weight gain and obesity
- May lower blood sugar levels
- May lower the risk of heart disease
- Reduces back pain
- Helps to improve mood and energy levels (we could all use a little more energy!)
- May boost productivity
- May help you live longer
- Movable “quiet” spaces: Many offices have converted to an “open” concept which means that there are either low, or no cubicles in a large open room for team members. This can make it difficult to get privacy if you have employees that need to make sensitive phone calls, or you have employees that occasionally need quiet places to work for minimal stimulation. These movable quiet spaces are great because there is no need to hire expensive contractors to build you individual rooms, they can be set up and take down as needed and are simple to furnish. We love simple wirestools with low backs and good lighting to make the space easy to work in, without it becoming overly “cozy”. Movable spaces are functional and a great way to build a positive company culture.
As unenjoyable those “covid” years were for all of us, it has brought some innovative ideas to create “hybrid” work spaces for hospitals, schools, and offices. Let us know what innovative office furniture solution your team is developing to see if we have a wire form solution for you!
