Office furniture is the key to better work

Correctly and functionally furnishing one’s work space, whether it is an office or a corner in the home, perhaps with a foldaway desk for home working, is essential to increase one’s productivity while also adding pleasure.

New work-related interior design theories, for example, call for employers to provide relaxation areas or to include plants to promote a better atmosphere.

As far as individual furniture and accessories are concerned, one of the most important for practicality and personal well-being is undoubtedly the office swivel armchair.

From this point of view, the office swivel armchair is designed precisely to be comfortable and ergonomic and to safeguard the back, allowing various positions and adjustments.

And it is also design-oriented, with a wide range of choice to best suit all types of offices and rooms.

A chair of this type, designed for offices but also used at home, for example by people studying at their desks, is pivoted on an axis that allows it to rotate on itself 360 degrees and is on wheels. The modern ones give the possibility to adjust the height and also the recline of the backrest with respect to the seat, guaranteeing maximum comfort in the immediate future, allowing one to work in a comfortable position, and in the long run an important prevention against the typical pains of those who sit a lot.

The support can be wood, metal, even plastic or polyurethane, the upholstery (if provided, they increase comfort and are beautiful to look at) of breathable technical materials that prevent perspiration, in fabrics such as linen or cotton or, for the most refined, elegant and timeless solutions, leather.
