The innovative furniture brand Lensvelt already came up with a solution for this in 2010: the Electric Sit To Stand work table. Because Lensvelt stands for ‘The healthy office’.
With this flexible and dynamic furniture range, Lensvelt offers a choice of desks of various sizes, shapes and colors. This way you can create an individual workplace as well as a generous duo work or meeting place. The desks are electrically adjustable from 65 to 130 centimeters so you no longer have to sit passively all day long.
This is how Lensvelt moves the office worker. And that is not a luxury. Researchers claim that so many sitting increases the chance of an early death.
Sitting is the new smoking.
Not only the gym before or after work, but also the purchase of the Sit To Stand worktables at work are a good start to that behavioral change.
Several companies use this mobile furniture system that encourages action. For example, Q42, which builds apps, websites, games, robots, AI and VR, deliberately opted for the Sit To Stand desks. In the new office building in The Hague, all employees received a stand-up desk from Lensvelt. ‘It is durable furniture that ensures a healthier attitude and offers a choice between standing and sitting work,’ says Office Manager Wendy van Lienden of Q42 in The Hague. ‘I work all day, so I need less, but more and more colleagues think this is a great way of working.’
The fast-growing company Q42 consists of more than eighty employees spread over a large branch in The Hague and a smaller one in Amsterdam. Q42 is the creator of, among other things, an AR app for PostNL, the Volkskrant app for the Persgroep, the Rijksmuseum app and the website Below the Surface for the Municipality of Amsterdam.
At Q42 everyone gets the space to develop their own ideas into products or set up a label or start-up. Examples of these so-called ventures are LessonUp, Turtleblaze and Hack the Planet.
