Feeling Good And Looking Good – New Offifice Trends Feature Sustainable Design

ONLY ITALIAN IS THE LEADING OFFICE FURNITURE SUPPLIER IN ZIMBABWE. THEIR RANGE ALWAYS FEATURES THE LATEST INTERNATIONAL TRENDS AND DEVELOPMENTS IN OFFICEAND WORKSPACE DESIGNS. HAVING RECENTLY RETURNED FROM THE ‘SALONE DEL MOBILE’ IN MILAN, FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF ONLY ITALIAN MIRELLA BESCOTTI, IS EXCITED TO INTRODUCE THE LATEST TRENDS TO THE ZIMBABWEAN MARKET.

Contemporary offices are becoming more dynamic and flexible’s work places, less formal and compartmentalized, and focused on the health, well-being and happiness of workers in a more holistic way. Workplaces are becoming more like home, relaxed and welcoming, as companies are finding informal, comfortable and spontaneous meeting places more productive and inspiring than the old formal boardroom meetings. There’s more emphasis on colours, textures, functionality and comfort. Co-working and collaboration have been discovered to enhance creativity, innovation and productivity. In line with these trends Only Italian aims to promote flexible and adaptable solutions in contemporary office spaces where you work, learn, share, grow and relax. These trends can be seen in both formal and informal contexts for co-working, executive offices and meeting area. There’s also an international movement towards environmental awareness in the manufacturing and production of workplace furniture with a focus on sustainability, durability and reducing waste or overconsumption in both materials, designs and production processes. The future is defifinitely looking greener!

Only Italian strongly supports corporate environmental awareness and in line with this objective, after much in-depth research, they’ve also partnered with two innovative South African manufacturers – sister companies Chair Club and Angel Shack, which Only Italian has added to its Italian office and communities’ furniture range. Only Italian is the sole distributors in Zimbabwe for these two companies. Chair Club and Angel Shack are committed to creating superior office solutions using locally produced, sustainable materials, as well as to empower people, create employment and develop skills.

Solutions to connect people:

Nest is a game-changing solution for informal meetings. It’s a comfortable sofa that can easily seat one, two or three people. The sofa is encapsulated in sound proof panelling on three sides forming its own intimate, small room, ideal to be placed in open plan offices. It has integrated power points for your laptop, tablet or phone charger and optional lighting. Place two of them opposite each other and you instantly have a private office – one that’s easily moved around or configured as needed.

Hive is the perfect solution if you need to work by yourself or just with a colleague. Hive has what you need: a large comfy seat, multi-adjustable table, reading lamp, and power outlets all surrounded by soundproof panels for privacy and designed to help you focus on the work at hand. It’s not quite a desk and not quite a booth. It’s like a personal retreat for reading, writing or thinking.

Both Nest and Hive are available in different colour options. Ergonomic chairs are specifically designed with comfort, health and good looks in mind. Office workers sit still for long periods of time but also need to stretch, swivel and turn, lean forward or backward, reach up or bend down – all in comfort and with maximum support. The new range of ergonomically designed chairs from Chair Club not only look great, they’re fully – and easily – adjustable with seats that can slide backwards or forwards, height adjustment and adjustable, sliding arms. The seats are moulded foam with a wide selection of fabric finishes and colours available. Only Italian also stocks other ranges from Chair Club and Angel Shack including occasional chairs, reception chairs, stools, side tables and laptop tables, and adjustable height desks (so you work sitting down or standing up), and planter boxes so you can introduce some greenery and vibrancy into the work place. Looking good by being and feeling good!
