How to create a workspace at home
These are the furniture and the furnishing accessories to furniture you home office in a functional and elegant way.
There are some who love it and some who hate it. The one thing that is for sure is that, during the last year, smart working has become a reality for many of us. Pandemic, in fact, lead millions of people to work from their homes, defining new boundaries for houses. And we expect that remote work will continue to be widespread in the future as well, with hybrid formulas in which working in presence will coexist with working digitally.
On the other hand, home working is not an innovation of 2020. The health emergency has speeded up a trend which has been ongoing for a long time now. With the help of the digital work, many workers have transformed their houses into an office. Especially, in the most creative sectors and in big cities.
If more and more people work remotely, creating a workspace at home is then an absolute priority. Since a comfortable environment helps you to concentrate and to be more productive.
Here you find some ideas to furniture your home office in a handy and functional way. Regardless the square meters you have at your disposal.
Not everybody has a room to be completely designated as home office. Often, it is necessary to try hard to obtain a workspace from your living room or from your bedroom. In these cases, it is essential to aim to compact and multitasking solutions. A writing desk, for example. A versatile furniture which can be placed in any place very easily indeed.
If you look for a handy but elegant writing desk for the living room of your home, B195 and Golia by Borzalino are just the ticket. Two writing desks which are characterized by their precious and tactile materials.
Essential forms, important materials. The writing desk B195 results from this contrast. The marble top gives an exclusive character, the minimal structure made of lacquered metal gives lightness to the whole. B195 is suitable to your home as well as to your office or to a hotel room.
The versatile mix of materials represents the heart of the writing desk Golia. The structure is made of solid wood of lacquered durmast, with metal details. The top is made of lacquered durmast veneered. However, the real distinguishing feature of Golia is its desk pad made of natural leather. When details make the difference
People do not like open spaces anymore. If our houses are now the place where we work, study, and take part in conference calls, it is essential to find our spots of privacy within our own four walls. Today and tomorrow.
To delimit spaces in common, several flexible and multifunctional solutions are available. An example? Nima and Kris the bookshelves by Borzalino.
Nima is a floor/ceiling modular bookshelf, with a structure of solid wood and shelves made of glass. It is a visually light design intended to hold and to delimit.
Kris is a modular bookshelf consisting of shelves made of wood with uprights of brushed brass or bronze effect. It is versatile to create several vertical compositions and it makes the system be suitable for several uses, from Tv console table to free standing bookshelf.
AN ERGONOMIC CHAIR
The chair is one of the most important elements to take into account when you furnish a workspace. In fact, spending many hours in front of a PC without the right support for your back may be damaging to your health.
If you have a room to be completely designated as home office, we suggest that you choose an ergonomic chair for office. If, on the contrary, your workspace is in your living room, a comfortable chair is needed which, in any case, goes well with the rest of the furniture
In a workspace it is essential to have the right lighting. It is necessary not to strain your sight and to stay focused. First of all, you have to make the best use of the daylight positioning the desk near a window. Then, you need to consider spot lighting.
For a desk, the best thing would be choosing a lamp with an adjustable arm. But you can also take into account an ambient lamp. Such as Lira by Borzalino. A metal basket emitting a soft light which lights our time after work, too.
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE A MUSIC BACKGROUND WHILE THEY ARE WORKING
There are some who love to be cradled by music while they are working. In these cases, another component is needed to complete a workspace: a loudspeaker.
If you are looking for something to be placed in your house discreetly, the solution is Lyzard by K-Array, a company specialized in professional audio systems. In fact, Lyzard is an extremely small, build-in loudspeaker which can integrate perfectly in any place.
Lyzard is not only tiny (it weighs 58 grams and measures just 2,2x10x1,08 cm), but it has an essential design, and it is possible to customize its colour. For a minimum visual impact, but with a top sound quality.
