The Rise and Fall of the Workstation

When planning our new office, no detail escaped examination. Not limited to the design of the actual building, the future workstations themselves received scrutiny. As part of the office-wide design charrette process (both formal and informal), Design Group team members tested a seemingly endless parade of chair and desk options.

What might seem like a minor decision was actually quite important.

Beyond simple aesthetics, the ergonomics of the desks and chairs ruled the decision-making process. Like many other professionals, architects, designers, and engineers spend the majority of their work days sitting at a desk, staring at a computer screen. This makes selecting the right desk and chair essential for employee health. Citing the proven benefits of workstations that can be adjusted in height to suit the user, we decided upon Baker's Zydeco™ electric table. At the touch of a button, each employee will be able to adjust the height of his/her desk – and will even be able to stand to work if so desired.
