44 Multi-Functional Office Furniture Concepts

From Smart Standing Desks to Connected Charging Hubs

— March 17, 2016 — Art & Design
These multi-functional office furniture concepts include standing desks that are designed with both comfort and connectivity in mind along with ergonomic chairs that cater to the varying needs of different workers. Standing desks have been proven to promote physical activity more than sedentary furniture options and have been growing in popularity recently. Those who aren't ready for a full-time standing desk commitment can invest in a multi-functional furniture option that allows for more customization.

In addition to health and wellness-promoting office furniture, other standouts include connected power solutions that can charge mobile devices in mere minutes. A standout example is Zoeftig's Power Hub, a table concept that simultaneously powers smartphones and other compact devices.

Additionally, privacy-encouraging seating pods or opposing examples that promote collaboration are great ways to separate private and communal workspaces effectively.
