Dynamobel, forever with its finger on the pulse of such developments, has developed a new office furniture programme called “Cell” which corrects the shortfalls of the “bench” concept and boosts more organic networks within the office space, encouraging inspiration and collaboration among its members. The old pyramidal organisational model that hindered interaction between all the talent in the organisation is a thing of the past.
The current trend is to view office workers as independent “cells” who are free to come and go, and are just as likely to work alone as they are as part of a team with others operating in their own immediate environment or at remote locations with the aid of new technologies. This new way of working is not incompatible with one of the chief requirements of the office environment: the need for privacy. Although there is an evident need for the members of a team to interact, certain tasks call for more private spaces and ones in which it is easier to concentrate.
The Cell programme includes specific pedestal designs as part of its endeavour to make office environments more collaborative.
The desk-height pedestal serves the twofold function of connecting and extending the work surface between desks. In one of the versions available, it is possible to fill the top section of the unit with plants, a current trend based on the principle of biophilia: humans’ instinctive affinity with the natural world and other living systems. Studies show that this practice offers noticeable, measurable benefits both for companies and their employees, including positive effects in terms of happiness and creativity.
Finally, there are the 110-cm high pedestals, ideal for informal standing meetings, which also double up as lockers and come with a letter-slot option, perfect if you want to keep your correspondence private in the work environment.
