Office Lighting


For a more harmonious and productive day, natural light is essential in an office. The desk must be placed next to a window or a balcony, either facing or parallel to them.


In addition to the light coming from the window, it must have artificial light spots. We know that during winter time, the sun sets early, and at around 5.30 p.m. you will no longer be able to enjoy natural light. The hanging and articulated lamps save space on the desk and direct the light to strategic points. It is important to create visual comfort while working on the computer without having unwanted reflections on the screen. How to solve that? It's simple, place the hanging lamp above the computer, so that the light focus is behind the screen. The same applies to natural light, move the desk to where unwanted reflections don't compromise your computer screen visualization.


The lighting tone is also relevant to ensure eye comfort. Ceiling and directional lamps should have the same colour temperature and tone to create harmony and not tire the vision.



Comfortable Chairs


The chair is where undoubtedly you spend most of your time when working from home. Therefore, the chair is one of the objects in which you should invest and study which one is most appropriate for you. Always follow the ergonomics rules, resulting from good posture and try the chair before purchasing it. Only this way you will be sure that it is comfortable and has the ideal size. Wheelchairs are versatile, but some may slide more than they should or even scratch some floors type, such as ceramic. Choose to place an anti-slip mat suitable for office chairs, and this will prevent the chair from moving too much and protect the floor of your home from scratches.


Office chairs are an important choice and can be compared to choosing a mattress. It should allow good posture and health, combining this with the workplace decor.
