“We believe the single biggest improvement you can make to your work routine is to sit less, and move more.”
Serendipity. After months of research to find a solution to my work-induced back pain, sciatica, poor posture and fatigue, the answer appeared right in front of me.
My daughter needed a final project for her A-level in Product Design, so we agreed that she would design a bespoke ‘sit-stand desk’. I became her client, and the finished sit-stand desk, using Linak components, was our working prototype, as shown in the photographs above. This creative collaboration completely transformed the way that I started to work – after almost 35 years of sedentary office work!
With an adjustable sit-stand desk and an ergonomic chair, I soon started to feel the benefits of moving more.
We were inspired to help others, and began to develop our own ideas for ‘active working’. Scandinavia is the market leader in sit-stand working, so we decided to source Flomotion’s future product line there. Before launching our business, we spent time testing, trialling and refining our approach to sit-stand furniture, to see which products work in different situations.
Over time we found out exactly what works and what really makes the difference – in our on-going battle against a sitting culture, inactivity and sedentary working!
