People don't always notice the layout (shame), but they never miss the office furniture.
Office furniture says so much about your business and how people feel, particularly if they are using it for 35+ hours a week. Individual work has changed: 82% of white-collar office workers now partner with others to get work done.
Individual space is shrinking and working in pairs is now the most common form of collaboration. Therefore workstations need to evolve to accommodate these new needs.
Space-pod desking, seating and storage ranges, which answer the needs of individuals and teams, to suit any type of environment: flexible and ergonomic desks, adjustable benches, elegant management desks, modular meeting tables, ergonomic office seating, space-saving office storage and desk ergonomics.

Space-pod can supply office furniture for your office refit throughout London, Buckinghamshire and beyond.
Space Saving – new ‘collaborative’ ways of working
People are usually an organisation’s biggest cost – but equally they should always be their greatest asset too.
Many employers are currently struggling to balance the need for cost reductions, outsourcing and flexible working with trying to retain or attract talent to maintain services and improve productivity.
Coupled with this is the need to dispose of surplus infrastructure and to condense office space, which is leaving many organisations increasingly looking to reduce their property support people and their work; resulting in compressing occupant densities and dispersing teams with remote or flexible working, which brings new challenges in terms of infrastructure and workspace design.
Many public and private corporations are looking to extend flexible working across their organisations to help retain key staff, create a more productive workforce and support carbon targets but particularly to make their property assets work harder by re-defining work settings and space requirements – ultimately improving the ‘bottom line’.
Successfully implementing flexible working is not something that happens overnight – it requires time, energy and input from many sources across the client organisation and its suppliers. Early engagement with the client to understand the key space requirements, IT investment and technology, management capability, and changing work practices will significantly benefit the outcome of the workspace design. In essence, new ways of working empowers and supports people to work where, when and how they choose to maximise their productivity, innovation and ultimately to deliver best value to the organisation. Every organisation is different and has different levels of capability however if managed well, introducing new working practices can significantly cut fixed and variable costs, reduce environmental impact, improve productivity, resilience and customer focus as well as creating a more satisfied workforce with a better work life balance.
This is at the core of what space-pod does when designing and implementing office furniture schemes.
