Movement benefits our bodies, minds and the way we interact with other people. Case studies show that a wide range of frequent motion makes us more alert, more communicative and productive than people who just sit still.
Innov8 Office Interiors’ newest partner, Wilkhahn, has devoted decades to making people less desk-bound. It all started with a pioneering study called “From posture-based to motion-based seating” which spawned products that are still considered the world’s best and most attractive office chairs.
Current research results that highlight the minimum level of physical activity required encourage us to continue down this route of “dynamic seating”, and advancements in material and process technology have opened up opportunities to tap into completely new dimensions of dynamic sitting with their patented 3D kinematics called “Trimension”.
Their engineers and designers have created IN and made this ground breaking technology not just possible, but affordable too. Perfectly synchronised 3D dynamics combined with exceptional comfort stimulate our bodies, boost our powers of concentration and make work a relaxing experience.
Alternative ways of sitting and adapting our posture can be entertaining as well as functional. The newest addition to this arena are “Stand-Up’s”, they are the epitome of a fun approach to the serious side of working life. Stand-Up encourages us to forget familiar positions and postures, swing our hips and let our thoughts take flight.
Psychologists, physiotherapists and orthopaedists all agree that physical activity’s vital if we want to stay fit and healthy. But it’s the whole of our body that’s important and not just our backs and joints. Getting enough exercise helps us to cope with stress, to feel happy and to make us more productive. And productivity is a top priority.
