A better, healthier, and more elegant way to work.
Founded in 1983 in New York, Humanscale has transformed offices around the world thanks to its ergonomic seating and accessories. The company’s first range of articulating keyboard systems made their debut in the ‘90s, followed by the innovative Freedom chair in 1999. Designed by renowned ergonomics designer Niels Diffrient, the chair blended functionality with elegance. It revolutionized classic office seating, bringing comfort as well as convenience to the work place. The company also opened an in-house design studio in 2002. Since then, it has produced a range of innovative and creative designs, with products winning over 200 awards and appearing in prestigious locations, including at MoMA.
Naturally, the brand continues to evolve and innovate, providing clever solutions for the ever-changing working environment. Case in point? The recently launched Quickstand Eco workstation. It not only improves upon previous standing desk designs, but also offers an eco-friendly solution for modern offices. With the various health benefits of working standing up becoming more well-known, the demand for adequate workspaces steadily increased over the past few years. We now know that alternating sitting with standing in a working environment may not only improve health, but it may also enhance alertness and productivity, which makes standing desks a must-have for any office. The global leader in office ergonomics, Humanscale takes that concept to a whole new level of functionality, convenience, and style.
The next generation of portable sit/stand products, Quickstand Eco boasts a minimalist aesthetic and clean lines. This means that it will look great in any space, from home to corporate offices, whether it’s 2017 or 2027. Apart from its sleek good looks, Quickstand Eco also incorporates a wide range of practical features to bring wellness, comfort, and function into offices. These include the portable design, simple setup, 18” of work surface adjustment, and a minimal footprint. The user can easily convert the unit to create a sitting or a standing minimalist workstation. The convenient cable management system keeps the work area clear and tidy, while the ingenious self-locking mechanism keeps even equipment of up to 35 lbs stable and secure.
Made with sustainability in mind, Quickstand Eco doesn’t contain any toxic materials. A Declare label is also available to provide insight into the components and materials. This makes the innovative work surface the only sit/stand product certified with one. Quickstand Eco comes in three versions: laptop, single, and dual monitor, all available in timeless black and white options. The prices start at $399 on the brand’s website, with accessories and practical office tools also available. Photographs© Humanscale.
