Alegre Design converses about new office trends in India
28 Jan 2019
Innovation in design and the future of workplaces have been the main themes of our designer Andrés Baldovi’s speech during the Inspiring Office Designer Forum that has taken place in India.
This discussion forum, organized by industrial manufacturer Sunon, has celebrated the opening of the company’s new showroom and design experience center in Hyderabad, India. A grand inauguration ceremony was held to commemorate the unveiling of the largest office furniture showroom in South Asia. It covers an area of 1200 square meters in a two-floor space with the fullest-range of office furniture collections.
This event attracted hundreds of dealers, project managers, designers and architects interested in customized office spaces.
Andrés Baldoví was one of the European designers who were invited to take part in this conference, in which Sunon showed the quality and innovation of its range of products, that includes Hip Chair, designed by Alegre Design.
Our designer discussed the importance of technologies in every company’s work and in the distribution of the spaces in which they work. That’s why it is so important that furniture design takes into account the use of all these devices.
He also explained Alegre Design’s design philosophy: creating experiences through products. Products that must take into account the user’s experience, its well-being, its ergonomy and the product’s uses.
In that sense, he explained the mechanisms that allow Hip Chair to favour both intensive work at separate desks – Focus Work- and also more dynamic, adaptable work where there is freedom of movement and flexibility -Dynamic Work-.
Its design, that maximized comfortability and ergonomics, allows the back of the chair to adapt to the movement of the hips, thanks to having a structure that accommodates the body’s movement and an innovative synchronized system.
A rotation axis is built into the arms of the chair so that it rotates from one side to another according to the task being carried out. Apart from the movement synchronization mechanism, it also has a lumbar adjustment system and an adjustable system for the headrest.
Hip Chair, that has recently been recognized with the A’ Design Award and GOOD DESIGN AWARD, is one of this new showroom’s main pieces of furniture. This showroom helps companies create great employee experiences in the workplace, but also provides a concept of healthy office that generates well-being and brings to life a new vision for the future of work.
