According to all trustable sources, teleworking, or working from home (WFH) is a new reality that is consolidating, without a clear perspective of when is going to fade.
Day after day, new companies announce that their employees will keep WFH for an undefined period of time. And working areas that before were considered as office mandatory, are now experiencing working without major inconveniences from the comfort and security of their homes.
So, suddenly the home office has become a special place in the house for many workers. If it’s true that it was a previous growing trend, the current explosion of teleworking will create a wave of renovations in many homes, that are adapting to the new reality.
For most of the regular homes, a regular office is a small space with one desk, one chair, some storage facilities, and maybe a printer in a separate table. For many people, this is more than enough to perform their daily work, but there are some often poorly considered elements:
- Lighting. Many Home offices are placed in bad illuminated sites, receiving just indirect light.
- Chair. As part of a new trend, not everyone is fully concerned about the impact for your health that a good, or bad chair may have. There are lots of home office spots created under the premise that this is a place for nonessential tasks.
- Privacy. Not every job is the same, but there are a lot of positions that require noise canceling and privacy to communicate via webcams or group phone calls.
While the third element will impact mostly on your performance in your job, lighting and your chair will affect your health. And nothing has more impact on your body than your chair.
As the National Health Service of England, NHS indicates, there are two tips to consider if we want to prevent the potential harm to our body, of been seated too many hours daily. First of all: we must protect our spine with spinal support. Second: Our chair should be adjusted to the ergonomics of our body, more exactly, the height, back position, and tilt. A proper chair reduces the strain on your back and allows you to place your feet on the floor with comfort while keeping your eye level constant. And that’s exactly what the Eames Office Chairs do for your body. Since 1961, the thoughtful design of the Eames Office Chairs, whether in its “Ribbed” or “Softpad” versions, provides you support and care in the specific areas your body needs the most, and that’s what makes it a classic piece of furniture.
