1.) Active Seating

Active seating is the way of the future. With the popularity of sit to stand furniture, active stools have become a must consider for any business looking to create high performance interiors that are up to date with the latest trends. With ergonomic active seating like the Pivot from the Safco Focal series you can enjoy support where you need it, when you need. Active stools like the Pivot make it easier to work at standing height surfaces for long periods of time. They'll keep you muscles moving and your body engaged.

2.) Height Adjustable Tables

Why sit when you can stand? That's the question many ergonomic enthusiasts are asking. When you spend hours on end sitting at your desk, blood flow is restricted and fatigue sets in. With a height adjustable table you can collaborate with your coworkers while reducing energy dips. Height adjustable tables are becoming a staple in conference rooms, training environments, and even private office interiors.

3.) Sit To Stand Attachments

Sit to stand attachments will help you improve performance in your personal workspace. As mentioned above, sitting for long periods of time without taking a break is bad. It can actually shorten your life span. If taking regular breaks isn't possible, a sit to stand desktop attachment is a must. It will help you stay active, reduce energy dips, and improve posture when you do have to sit. We recommend the Volante from Systematix. It's commercial quality, cost effective, and super easy to use.

4.) Dual Screen Monitor Mounts

The days of using a single computer screen are coming to an end. Just think about all the time you spend wasting flipping back and forth between tabs. Not only will a dual screen monitor mount speed up your computing, it will create usable desk space while simultaneously allowing you to raise your screens to eye level where they belong to reduce visual strain.

5.) Articulating Keyboard Trays

You've probably got one and there's a good chance it's outdated. If your current keyboard tray simply slides in and out on glides underneath your desk, it's time to evolve. Articulating keyboard trays are your best bet if you're looking to type at healthy angles, reduce the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and perform at a high level. You'll be at no shortage of popular options to choose from. We recommend the articulating trays from Bush, Systematix and Symmetry Office.

6.) Responsive Office Chairs

Office comfort starts with the chair and you'll need comfortable ergonomic seating if you want to create high performance interiors. Those who really want to be on the cutting edge will want to check out responsive chairs that automatically respond to user movements. Weight sensing office chairs and office chairs with articulating backs reduce the need for constant lever pulling and adjusting to get comfortable. They do the thinking for you to ensure good posture and support. Popular responsive office chairs include the Verte from RFM Preferred Seating and the Living Chair from Mayline

7.) Open Concept Benching

Open Concept Benching

Businesses are on the hunt for modern cubicle alternatives that encourage collaboration and avoid restricting interaction. Today's high performance workplace will likely be outfitted with an open concept benching configuration that does just that. With open concept benching you can create clean sight lines, maximize your square footage, spark creativity, and so much more. A benching system is the single best way to create a high performance interior that's up to date with the latest trends. Popular collections like Princeton, Bungee, and SideBar II from Global are the best options on the market.
