With a shift in the modern workplace and growth of technology, the increase in a more sedentary lifestyle has created movements to promote employee health and wellbeing. Working styles are constantly evolving to allow for a healthy balance between sitting, standing and walking. This includes the introduction of height adjustable desks and tables, like our Swish and Rize which are a perfect solution to encourage movement.

Height adjustable desks allow users to easily adjust their work surface from a sitting to a standing position with a single tool, giving the user complete control of how they work. In addition, our Rize range includes height-adjustable side tables and meeting tables allowing employees to mix up the way they collaborate and conduct meetings.

Three benefits of height adjustable desks include:

  • Improved Health - With the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes from sitting all day, research has shown that switching to a sit-stand desk lowers blood sugar levels, lowers your risk of heart disease, improves metabolism and reduces back pain.

  • Improved Mood and Energy Levels - The popularity of sit-stand desks has had a positive impact on the employees overall well-being. By introducing desks like our Swish or Rize, users have shown to be less stressed and fatigued than those who remain seated all day.

  • Boosts Productivity - Being able to access a variety of postures throughout the day helps employees stay engaged with their work tasks. Standing has also been proven to stimulate circulation, sending more oxygen and nutrients to the brain, improving one's mental focus thus encouraging one to work more efficiently and increase performance.

Surrounded by light filled windows, InsurX’s new office maintains the openness of the interior space with high ceilings and exposed timber panelling. With feature walls displaying motivational quotes throughout for visual impact, Designate Interiors designed an office that harmonizes the internal details and furniture effectively.

Exuding natural hues of brown and grey, our Cooper chairs and Dart coffee tables welcome visitors as they enter the office. The use of woods creates an inviting feeling of coziness and warmth.

Extending the visual focus beyond the entrance, meeting rooms can be seen through the tall glass windows. Using Velo tables and Universal storage in a light timber finish with black legs, surrounded by our Zed Chairs, a formal yet soft atmosphere was crafted. This aesthetic is continued in the boardroom and other meeting rooms, complimented by the same furniture setting.

Utlising the generous office space, the area was filled with runs of our Keywork workstations, perfectly paired with Trak screens, planters, Space chairs and black Globe pedestals.

Creatively hidden by curved floating walls, our Halo table in a custom semi-circle shape and Space chairs form a collaborative area for employees. Green plant walls integrated with whiteboards cultivate a natural element with additional texture.

Considering the nuances of the modern workplace, breakout areas have been created for the team to relax. Designate Interiors turned a nook into a haven for our Jive counter table and Zorro stools which form a continuous bench situated in front of another green planted wall. Opposite this sits out Benj high lounges and Dart organic coffee table for more private spaces.

Moving into the kitchen and lunch area, our Sofi lounges and Dart organic tables form pods of soft seating. Upholstered in contrasting blue tones, a more playful atmosphere has been created.

Insurx’s new space considers the different working environments for the modern employee. Providing various settings that focus on connection, collaboration and comfort by the curation of furniture, finishes and aesthetic.
