The office is a bit like the dress we decide to wear, it reflects us.
If you are part of a formal sector, the furniture of the offices will certainly be more sober and composed, while if you deal with informal sectors, such as communication agencies or furniture brands, the design will be more modern and creative.
Whether it is a traditional environment or a younger and more dynamic one, what matters is to be able to recreate pleasant and relaxing spaces, where people feel comfortable and can perform their duties in a comfortable climate, that allows them to concentrate and be productive.

Let’s discover them together in more depth.
Decorate the office with the right desk and carefully choose their layout
Needless to say, the desk is the undisputed star of the company offices, above which we spend at least eight hours a day, for this reason must be chosen carefully according to the needs.
The perfect desk should definitely be spacious, durable, not too delicate and at the right height, so work at the computer while maintaining a correct posture.
Curiosity on the desk: ideal positioning, materials and dimensions
Surely laterally to the windows, so as to avoid annoying reflections of natural light, which could disturb and blur during the working hours.
If you have an openspace environment, the ideal is to put a desk in front of the other, even close, wanting, so that people can have, at any time, the way to confront their colleagues on the work they are doing. After all, aren’t the best ideas born from confrontation?
The design of the desk also has its importance: material, style and size must be chosen carefully according to the result you want to achieve.
The most popular material is still wood with a lacquered surface, which thanks to its soft lines and its natural resistance give our work area a unique and comfortable character.
In recent years, to create modern furnishing and design complements wood is combined with metal structures, resistant and minimalist style, simple and quick to clean.
As in the case of our Atollo desk, with metal frame and poplar wood top, painted with a veil with an excimer finish that gives it great resistance to scratches and abrasions.
The most comfortable size for a company office is the rectangular one because, being developed in length, it has a smaller footprint and gives us the possibility to have plenty of space available to lean on all the items we need: from computer to printer, from pen holder to notepad.
How to better organize your desk?
It is very simple! The important thing is to keep at hand only what is really necessary and eliminate all those unnecessary accessories and furnishings that can distract us.

Together with the desk you can obviously not miss the office chair: it focuses on ergonomic seats, which allow staff to work comfortably, reducing the risk of muscle and joint fatigue. Here, too, it seeks the right compromise between design and functionality.

To plan accurately the shared spaces in which to store documents, folders and files you can think of creating a single wall of shelves and divide each area with a different color, so that you immediately see the exact location of the material that we need or that needs to be stored.
In the individual workstations, instead, it is possible to insert, in addition to the drawers, individual shelves where employees can store their personal documents, or decorate the walls of their work area with a few maps, a souvenir photo or a souvenir dear to them.

The lights must be positioned correctly: they must adequately illuminate not only personal desks, but also corridors, meeting rooms and sharing areas such as the company canteen and the areas dedicated to the break.
