Design Notes from the Barcelona Chair: Working from Home

According to all trustable sources, teleworking, or working from home (WFH) is a new reality that is consolidating, without a clear perspective of when is going to fade. 

Day after day, new companies announce that their employees will keep WFH for a undefined period of time. And working areas that before were considered as office mandatory, are now experiencing working without major inconveniences from the comfort and security of their homes. 

So, suddenly the home office has become a special place in the house for many workers. If it’s true that it was a previous growing trend, the current explosion of teleworking will create a wave of renovations in many homes, that are adapting to the new reality.

For most of the regular homes, a regular office is a small space contentive of one desk, one chair, some storage facilities and maybe a printer in a separate table. For many people, this is more than enough to perform their daily work, but there are some often poorly considered elements:

  1. Lighting.
  2. Ergonomic Chair.
  3. Privacy (Noise cancelling).

A good design and ergonomics go always together. Go to Barcelona Design and you will find the best renditions of masterpieces, like the Barcelona Chair and the Hans Wegner Shell Chair.
