The most successful chairs in collaborative offices
3 June, 2021
Did you know that a person spends about eight hours a day sitting at their workstation? Probably more than the time spent sleeping.
More and more offices are reinventing their workspaces to adapt to the new times, with the aim of achieving higher performance, motivating their employees, improving productivity or the development of group functions, for example. It is clear that, in this type of space, collaborative work flows by itself.
There are many pieces that make up a collaborative workspace or office: tables, stools, dividers, low seating, armchairs or chairs, among others. Collaborative offices are increasingly valued in any facility, centre or space, as they boost the creative capacity of employees and the development of new ideas.
That is why, in this Viccarbe post we are going to focus on mentioning which are the features you should take into account to choose the perfect collaborative chair for your office, giving you also some examples of our own pieces and designs.
4 features when choosing the right collaborative chair
There is no doubt that investing in collaborative furniture for our office is an essential step to ensure that our employees are familiar with and feel comfortable in their workspace.
Within the collaborative workspaces we can say that the main protagonists are the office chairs, of which we are going to mention below a series of characteristics to choose the most suitable and in accordance with the design project of a collaborative office. But, before we get into the subject, let’s remember what collaborative offices or spaces used to be:
“These are all those open-plan offices whose main objective in the choice and distribution of furniture is to favour collaboration between people”.
Here are some features to consider when choosing the right chair for your collaborative office:
Allow for greater comfort
Purchasing and choosing a good chair for working in a collaborative space is very important. It is necessary to take into account the comfort factor when choosing our chair, because if it is not comfortable, it can have a negative impact on the way we end up developing our work in the future. A good chair in a collaborative space adapts to the user, not the other way around.
Improve and increase productivity
No one imagines that an employee can be more productive at work solely because of where he or she sits. Thus, working in the right position and adjusting our body to a chair will provide us with more well-being, energy and will have a positive impact on our health. At the end of the day, a modern collaborative office chair that improves the posture of the worker will directly influence the way they work, their motivation and productivity.
Made of quality materials
Both the upholstery of the collaborative chair and the materials it is made of are key elements when it comes to choosing the piece that best suits our business. As for the upholstery, it is important to choose chairs that are characterised by being resistant and also easy to clean. In terms of materials, chairs for collaborative offices are dominated by modern, avant-garde and attractive components such as solid wood, metal, upholstery…

When choosing chairs, it is essential to opt for quality pieces.
