7 main principles of trendy sustainable office furniture
Sustainability is a big issue, especially in the places where we spend a lot of time. The workplace clearly belongs to this category. The office furniture should therefore be ecological and beneficial for our health. We have often addressed the individual aspects of the topic in various articles on our website. In the following we summarize the most important principles of modern sustainability in office furnishings.
Light, comfortable furniture and everything else that you need for your well-being belong to the sustainable work office!
The sustainable office furniture is functional
Multifunctional furniture and minimalism are among the main trends in interior design. You can stay economical and sustainable even in the home office. If you work from home, you can turn various storage spaces in the living room or bedroom, the kitchen island, kitchen tables and even wide window sills in different rooms into functional workplaces. In the larger office that you share with colleagues, the office table should also serve as a discussion table. You could also elegantly integrate the required storage space.
Sustainable also means healthy, among other things
Recyclable and environmentally friendly materials
A minimalist office furniture relies on quality instead of too many pieces of furniture. This gives you the chance to choose ecological materials for your furniture. This should ideally be made from recycled materials or from those that can be reprocessed. A few days ago we published an article about the pallet furniture and decoration. Have you read this?
Choose furniture made from sustainable and reusable materials
Reduce the use of plastic and plastic
Do you like to eat and drink hot drinks while you work? Some lose concentration without a snack or hot drink. In this case, you should ideally equip the office with enough crockery. This eliminates the need for disposable plates and cutlery made of plastic and plastic, which you use briefly and then throw away. This is an absolute no-go in terms of sustainability! The dishes should ideally also be made from sustainable materials.
Relaxed and happy people demonstrably behave more sustainably in everyday life
Do you have sufficient access to light at your workplace? This is not only important for your health, but also for a good mood and thus for the quality of your work. You also save energy. So the office furnishings should be planned in such a way that you benefit as much as possible from natural light. Turn everything off at night. If possible, use energy-saving devices, lights and other facilities.
Let the natural light in and save energy!
