Accessibility to Clients and Employees Unlike some kinds of office furniture, reception desk furniture should be open and allow visitors to easily interact with the receptionist. The desk needs to be big enough so that items can be worked on without taking over the entire desk area. The ideal reception desk furniture would have an extra wide surface so that the receptionist can work on one half of the desk while visitors comfortably write notes or other communications on the other half of the desk. A wide desk also provides some privacy for the receptionist if he or she is working on something that is of a more confidential nature.
As popular as the Aeron chair is, it does have competition with the Haworth Zody chair. The Zody chair is the only chair to ever get an endorsement from the American Physical Therapy Association. As you may expect, this chair puts function over form. The chair isn’t unattractive — in fact, Haworth commisioned the German design company Ito design for assistance — but its focus on science and ergonomics is what sets it apart. The Zody chair features a unique asymmetrical adjustment system designed with the University of Michigan’s Human Performance Institute, which allows you to target problem areas like the lower back and make the chair conform to your body.
This reasonably priced chair has the look and feel of a high-end brand with deep, ergo-layered body pillows that offer the perfect combination of comfort and support. The chair is made from eco-friendly bonded leather with a BIM Active lumbar that pivots as you move for continuous lumbar support. Adjust the height of the padded armrests with the push of a button, and use the convenient cable actuated levers to control the lift and lock-out features. The Serta Back in Motion chair also offers unique posture-correcting tilt technology that actually tilts your pelvis forward when you lean. This keeps your back in a beneficial neutral position to avoid pressure on your discs and promote spinal movement. After a few days, you’ll start to feel the benefits of a comfortable and supportive seat that can get you through your long work day.
