Concentration and productivity in the home office
Thanks to more flexible working hours and digital networking, people are increasingly working from home. The furnishing of the home office can be much more comfortable and personal than in the office: but should always ensure the same concentration and productivity. Manufacturers such as Vitra or USM Haller specialize in high-quality design furniture for the office sector and offer numerous functional solutions that also have a pleasantly homely feel. In addition to storage space solutions, an ergonomic office chair, a sufficiently large desk and a complementing desk lamp play an important role in the home office.
Furnishing the home office: More than just a desk
When setting up your own study, there are no limits to personal taste, but of course it is important to observe the requirements of the room. When choosing the right desk, functionality and often size are the focus. A popular, and thanks to its minimalist design language, especially with architects popular design classic is the spacious Eiermann desk. The Eiermann table frame was designed by the German functionalist Egon Eiermann, and can be combined with an Eiermann table top in various sizes and designs and thus meets very different requirements. For productive work, choosing the right lighting is also essential: desk lights should be flexible and dimmable to allow for prolong periods of work on the computer. An absolute classic and a functional jewel is the Tolomeo Tavolo desk lamp by Artemide. Equally important is the choice of a desk chair in the home office. Models such as the Vitra Physix are no compromise in terms of functionality and ergonomics, but thanks to their compact technology and particularly elegant design they blend perfectly into the living area.
