Six ideas for the future of office furniture

The dangers of a sedentary lifestyle is well known as well as the fact that concentration problems in the workplace leads to reduced efficiency, performance and comfort. In this year's projects, the final-year students in Product Design have explored the problems and opportunities created in workplaces with open floor plans and offices with the popular activity-based approach.

The result is six ideas for the future of office furniture – furniture that would put an end to the endless sitting, the furniture as a communication tool, the furniture that creates privacy and serve as a refuge, the furniture as a living space for spontaneous meetings and active work, to a construction kit based office concept and a flexible storage system as the antithesis of today's often static storage.

–By collaborating with Edsbyn, we want to create a dynamic exchange between industry and students. To be working in a real projects and communicate it to a public audience provides a unique insight into the profession as a designer, says Morgan Rudberg, Architect MFA and Senior Lecturer at Beckmans.

Om Beckmans Designhögskola

Anders Beckmans skola bildades 1939 av konstnären Anders Beckman och modetecknaren Göta Trägårdh som en småskalig konstnärlig skola för reklam och mode. 1992 breddades Beckmans utbildningar med en linje för form.

2003 fick skolan examensrätt och full statlig finansiering under namnet Beckmans Designhögskola och blev därmed avgiftsfri. Sedan övergången till högskola pågår ett fortlöpande arbete med att utveckla och kvalitetssäkra skolans grundläggande idéer inom ramen för rådande regelverk. Konstnärlig och teoretisk grund, högt kreativt tempo, närhet till samhället, yrkesverksam lärarkår, frekventa gästföreläsare och samverkan över disciplingränserna står i fokus. Hållbarhetsfrågor kring global miljö, ekonomi och kultur genomsyrar utbildningen. Beckmans Designhögskola värnar om en humanistisk och mångkulturell samhällssyn.

    I'm really fascinated by these furniture. They are a little bit strange for the first look, but I believe that in the future we all will be using such office furniture. I already imagine sitting at such table in searching <a href="http://hireessaywriter.org/">essay writers for hire</a> for my assignments...
