                                Designed as part of her Master&#8217;s Degree final project at the Wrocław Academy of Fine Arts, the DESKter is a sit &amp; stand workstation, by <a href="https://www.facebook.com/mwojtyczka/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Małgorzata Wojtyczka</a>, that gives you the best of both worlds. Standing desks have been growing in popularity in recent years with all of the news on sitting being bad for our bodies. But, standing full-time isn&#8217;t always ideal either. With DESKter, you can switch back and forth as needed for both health and comfort.
The workstation is made for adults and children for use in offices, public areas, schools, and even at home. DESKter is composed of three pieces – the supporting structure and two bent plywood desktops that can easily move into any of the various positions. If you’re ready to transport the desk or move it out of the way, it folds up and stores the desktops in additional slots. It’s also

                                While their business might be on the morbid side (funeral insurance), DELA&#8217;s goal is to take care of the ones that remain. Their human-focused approach not only falls on their insurance clients, but on their employees as well, which comes through in their <a href="https://www.hollandse-nieuwe.com/hoofdkantoor-dela/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">brand-new headquarters</a> in Eindhoven. Designed by <a href="https://www.hollandse-nieuwe.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Hollandse Nieuwe</a>, the new digs span 5,800-square-meters and house office floors, a restaurant, and a meeting center, all with a comfortable, approachable aesthetic.
The colorful interiors aim to be a healthy and inspiring environment where the employees can thrive. Colors were incorporated to help define the work areas, which include a variety of types of flexible workspaces they can utilize. Workspaces and casual seating areas were placed around the perimeter to maximize daylight and views while working. The designers incorporated greenery throughout to add a natural element that also cleans the air. The ground floor was given a double-height glass

                                Between constant chatter, machines humming, and general movement, companies continue to seek ways to reduce noise levels in their offices and while there are plenty of options out there, few are doing it like Belgian brand <a href="http://buzzi.space/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Buzzispace</a>. They&#8217;re always taking a creative route when it comes to <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/BuzziSpace/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">acoustical solutions, furniture, and lighting</a> for the workplace and their latest release even goes a step further. They enlisted American designer <a href="https://www.corygrosser.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Cory Grosser</a> who decided to take an organic approach to the age-old noise problem. Instead of looking to textiles for a solution, Grosser turned to nature, more specifically, preserved reindeer moss for a primary material. BuzziMood also takes on the living wall trend but where it differs is that the moss is low-maintenance as it needs no water.
Greenery has proven to increase the happiness and well-being of workers, and BuzziMood, like its name suggests, aims to offer more relaxing environments through

The project included renovating the industrial space while keeping the original character of the building, like exposed brick, wooden beams, and exposed ductwork and mechanics that keep the office running.
The interior boasts skylights and large windows that allow natural daylight to enter and fill the space. A large moss-covered wall brings an organic element into the industrial interior. A massive staircase and stadium seating connect two of the floors through an open atrium. The office has mobile meeting rooms that can be rolled to other spaces for smaller groups or just additional privacy. They also have semi-private cubbies that allow for Skype meetings and phone calls that won’t disturb people around them. Photos by Ema Peter.

                                With offices going more towards open floor plans that allow employees to collaborate, having pieces of furniture that allow for that is key. It also makes sense to incorporate pieces that can easily be moved around for meetings or for overall growth. <a href="https://www.mattiasstenberg.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mattias Stenberg</a> has nailed just that with two designs for <a href="https://www.offecct.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Offecct</a> that offer workers informal workspaces that can be changed up. First are the <a href="https://www.offecct.com/product/on-point/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">On Point</a> powered tables which allow for meetings while also having a central spot for plants, and then the <a href="https://www.offecct.com/product/carry-on-stool/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Carry On</a> stools which provide quick additional seating when needed.

                                This former garment manufacturing warehouse in Los Angeles&#8217; Silver Lake neighborhood has now become the home of independent animation and motion graphics studio, <a href="http://roger.tv/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Roger</a>. The 6,500-square-foot <a href="https://www.chacol.net/roger-tv"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">space</a> was renovated by <a href="https://www.chacol.net/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">CHA:COL, Inc.</a>, who were tasked with bringing the industrial building up to code. In order to house the young company, the firm had to design workspace for 30 animators, 6 producers with 4 private offices, 3 editing suites, 2 conference rooms, 3 bathrooms, an empty shooting space for green screen work, a kitchen, and lounge.
The layout was designed to include a central area, dubbed The Pit, that’s used for working, eating, having a meeting, or just taking a break. It was designed out of laminated plywood and features a bar-type counter, bleacher seating, and a display area. Surrounding The Pit is a loop left open for circulation to the surrounding areas. Instead of masking the industrial nature of

They were able to acquire the space next door allowing them to create a much larger, 50,000-square-foot office that suited their needs. The company enlisted <a href="https://raptstudio.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Rapt Studio</a> to design CEO Michael Dubin&#8217;s dream space that focused on connection, collaboration, and comfort for employees and visitors alike.

UHURU Adds to Their Minim Workplace Family with the MINIM RISE SIT|STAND

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/uhuru-adds-to-their-minim-workplace-family-with-the-minim-rise-sitstand/minim-rise-sit-stand-desk-uhuru-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/04/Minim-Rise-sit-stand-desk-Uhuru-1-810x648.jpg" alt="UHURU Adds to Their Minim Workplace Family with the MINIM RISE SIT&#124;STAND" /></a>

As with all UHURU designs, they&#8217;ve considered every last detail, from the workstation&#8217;s proportions to the materials it&#8217;s made from, to offer the utmost functionality without sacrificing good design.
The MINIM RISE SIT|STAND is outfitted with a powerful electronic lift system that’s built right into the sturdy steel base so it’s hidden away from view. It can even come with both workstations set at a fixed height, both with the SIT|STAND option, or one of each, depending on the employees’ preferences. To customize it further, you can select from five different tabletop options, three steel base finishes, and three different colors of felt for the divider. Besides the customizable look of it, there are also options to choose what kind of integrated power outlets are preferred.

The results are a variety of open work spaces, offices that house from one to eight people, informal seating areas, five kitchens, eating spaces, formal meeting rooms, and a welcoming reception and business lounge.
Since the spaces are long and narrow, they designed the layout into three sections lengthwise with pathways in between. Glass partition walls were used to allow light to penetrate the entire space. Sandwiched between some of the semi-private offices are public spaces, like kitchens and eating areas, sitting rooms, and open workspaces. The client requested that The Mixer felt like a home away from home, a pleasant place to work, yet with a
