Prepping the office space for the next generation

There is currently quite a buzz about collaborative work-spaces. Facebook, Google, and Microsoft all boast of their large open work-spaces. Why all the hype? Well, most innovation today is driven by at least two people bouncing ideas off each other, which is hard to do in semi-isolation. Team and group work frequently leads to faster, more creative results than solo work. Two heads are better than one, definitely applies to the corporate world.

3 Reasons Why Your Office Chair Fabric Matters

3 Reasons Why Your Chair Fabric Matters by Harris WorkSystems

1. Aesthetics –

The look of a chair is one of the first things people notice when walking into a room. The fabric colors, pattern, and material used can make a difference in how prestigious or inviting a room may feel. The office chair must look good as well as be highly durable, as it is one of the most used pieces in the office. Unfortunately, the look is not everything. The fabric that is selected has to be durable, functional, and meet the needs of the user, which brings us to number two, durability.

2. Durability & Application –

Since the office chairs are one of the most used pieces in an office, the fabrics that we recommend are rated for 75k to over 500k double rubs (abrasion testing). What do double rubs mean and how is the fabric tested? Check out this video of the Wyzenbeek Test: Durability Test. The fabric is tested by rubbing it until it breaks. That breaking point is how double rub is determined. So, when you want that visually appealing fabric with birds (or a pretty pattern) on it to wrap your next seat, make sure it is rated accordingly. ...  Read More
