The optimal work environment, which facilitates the achievement of the flow state, should be a place where employees are able to fully concentrate on a given task, receive immediate feedback through effective communication and cooperate with others efficiently, to experience flow as a team. It should also create a positive atmosphere in order to minimise occupational stress, and increase employees’ identification with the tasks they perform.

Modularity, in my opinion, is a very user-friendly feature, since it gives even better possibilities to use the products when new, often unpredictable, needs arise. It improves the functionality of the product.
Designer of the Hexa, Tauko and Tapa systems
More and more companies are leading a nomadic life, which means they often move to new locations or rearrange the existing space in order to meet new requirements. That’s why office furniture should be configurable.
Designer of Tepee
There is an artificial border between office and home products. We believe that some of them can successfully be applied to both spaces and should be adjusted to the user, not to the interior. Moreover, the use of materials and finishes we often associate with home furniture gives the office a feeling of warmth and friendliness.

We cooperate with excellent designers from different countries who can combine artistic forms with specialised knowledge of industrial design. We appreciate their ingenuity and awareness of employees’ needs. To ensure our furniture meets the requirements of contemporary offices even better, we support the designers with our know-how. We cooperate with them closely throughout the whole design process. The effects of our work are illustrated by the awards we receive in prestigious competitions and by thousands of satisfied users.
Famous German designer Lucius Burckhardt has said that good design is invisible (...). Good design is something hidden; it is simply a pleasure to use a product. If you struggle using a camera, an office chair, an office desk, then it’s not good design. It is very important that things work, they have to make your life easier, and this can be on different levels. It can be functional, it can be aesthetic or it can just please you. Design is always sensual.
