Interior Design: Stand Up Desks

Give Your Back a Break

The Stand-up desk:

Thomas Jefferson invented it and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld swears by it.

As we’ve all been told, sitting for hours at a time can wreak havoc on a person’s back, especially for individuals with existing back problems. Consider giving your back a break by using a stand-up desk, where you quite literally “stand up” while working. Many users claim this work method also makes them feel more alert and productive on-the-job. Desk stools are also available to be used in conjunction with these desks.

Many furniture suppliers offer these desks. Let me know if you would like help finding one for you!

Thanks

Interior Design: A Designers Development

Everybody knows it is important to learn, develop and educate. It doesn’t matter if you have been qualified for 20+ years… designers need to train over and over again. Skills need to be updated. Techniques need to be tweaked. The World is always changing. New things are being released daily. Furniture, software, colours, fabrics, technology… it is ever changing and incredibly important to keep on top of.

Design exhibitions, networking events, magazine subscriptions all help with this. You may have a qualification in design, but if you don’t train, learn and absorb the world around you, it is very easy to become outdated and behind the times.

We are always pushing our team to learn, inspire and train. One of our design team produced a layout for an office space that we felt was a little unimaginative. After some time spent with him, explaining new ways of thinking and the importance of the employee and clients journey etc.. He then produced a space that wowed us and the client! See below…

PLAN (2)

As you can see, the second option thinks more about the people in the space. It shows that the employer cares about the staff. It is creative and impressive for clients to be wowed!

No matter how long you have been doing something – KEEP LEARNING! Keep updating your knowledge!!
