Focusing in the Office
Focus furniture creates spaces where people can study or carry out tasks that need concentration and a bit of peace and quiet. By giving your people the time and space to focus alone, distractions will be reduced and they will become more productive.
For decades, one of the key complaints about the office was the distractions throughout the day. Throughout the last 18 months, remote office workers have become used to being able to focus in peace whenever they want – creating an unexpected productivity boost. While companies are now moving back to the office to increase connection and communication between teams, making sure your people can focus in the office is essential.
On average, employees lose 86 minutes each day at a workspace due to distractions around them in their environment – nearly 20% of their working day. Over time that can have a devastating impact on the engagement and productivity of your people. However, improving productivity in your workspace is simple and cost-effective, through careful workspace design and furniture curation.

Focus Furniture In Your Office
While the post-pandemic workspace is set to become a more collaborative hub to facilitate team connections in a hybrid working model, focus furniture is not obsolete – nothing could be further from the truth. It is unrealistic to expect your staff to focus all day every day when working remotely and then to collaborate constantly when in the office. Just as they need effective remote collaboration solutions, focus furniture will be crucial in giving them the time and space alone to focus while in your office.
