  • 4 Ways to Get Creative With HON Contain Storage

    While I will always love a classic HON vertical file, Contain is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  HON has recently expanded the Contain storage portfolio, so here are 4 ways you can get creative with this collection in your own workplace.

    1.Optimize Use of Shared Areas

    With the growing number of collaborative spaces in today’s workplace, I recommend adding Contain storage to keep these areas versatile and organized.  A typical shared space can be used to host a business lunch at noon and then for a team meeting in the afternoon. Contain credenzas are perfect for storing anything from flatware and plates to notebooks and pens which allows for seamless transitions between these shared spaces throughout the workday.

    1336-1307-1006 (Contain - Collaborative Area)_Final

    2. Separation of Spaces

    Contain allows you to create boundaries while still promoting an open environment.  Pathways can be created by arranging a line of low credenzas or divide individual workstations by placing a tower between work-surfaces – all while gaining additional storage space.

    HON Contain Storage

    3. Rethink the Private Office

    If you need to revitalize your private office, Contain storage pieces work great with HON desks.  Create your own custom desk by combining Voi work-surfaces and wall mounted storage with a mixture of Contain credenzas, pedestals and towers.  Not only will Contain keep you organized, but it will also allow you to be creative with your finishes by choosing from endless combinations of laminate, paint and pull options.

    4. Collaborate by Adding Cushions

    Make Contain collaborative by adding cushions to your pedestals and credenzas.  Cushions are perfect for allowing you and your co-workers to have those impromptu meetings or quick strategy sessions – they also add a fun pop of color and pattern to your space!

    HON Contain Storage

  • Ergonomics and Chair Adjustment Basics by LB Ehlers

    Ergonomics is a word many of us have heard before; especially, if we are in the office furniture industry. When the topic comes up we usually stand or sit up a bit straighter. But what exactly is ergonomics? And how can you control your personal workspace ergonomics?

    According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, ergonomics is “an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that people and things interact most efficiently and safely.” One of the things people use on a daily basis is a chair.

    You can begin to control your personal workspace ergonomics by appropriately adjusting your chair. There are four basic adjustments on a task chair that can significantly improve your overall ergonomics:  seat height, seat depth, arm rest position, and back/lumbar support.

     

    Seat Height

    adj1

    Your seat height should be adjusted so that your knees are close to a 90 degree angle and your feet are resting flat on the floor or a footrest. Having your chair too high or low can create pressure points throughout the day that effects circulation.

    Seat Depth

    adj2

    Seat depth should be adjusted so your back comes in contact with the back of the chair. You should also still have enough space between the back of your legs and the front of your seat to place a couple fingers. Again this will eliminate a pressure point while sitting.

    Arm Rest Position

    adj3

    Arm rests should be used to support your arms in a relaxed position to elevate tension and pressure on your neck and back. Your shoulders should be square and not up by your ears. Your elbows should be closer to your body and not out like “chicken wings.”

    Back Lumbar Support

    adj4

     

    Back supports are intended to support the back while sitting and still allowing for some recline movement. You should sit back in your chair and position the lumbar support to support your lower back. Having proper spine alignment helps relieve back and neck strain.

    These examples of adjustable chair features are just a few of many factors that contribute to a more ergonomically safe workplace. Visit hon.com today to learn more about HON’s practical seating solutions that can be customized to fit the needs of almost any user.

  • How It's Made: HON Abound Plains Tiles from McKee Button Company by Jackie Celske

    We love our Abound® Workstations for many reasons. Abound is quick to install, easy to reconfigure to fit any workspace, and supports a wide range of material options for a stunning aesthetic (just to name a few). But, beyond how it works, we also love the story behind how Abound is made.

    The beautiful Abound Plains tiles, like the ones you see below, are created just down the street from HON HQ by one of only 4 remaining button manufacturers in the United States. Family-owned McKee Button Company was started back in 1895 when Muscatine, IA was considered to be the Pearl Button Capital of the World. Today, they continue to produce buttons and specialize in custom solid surface materials that can be used for almost any application from home to commercial to retail.

    mckee1

    A few HON members had the privilege of touring the McKee Button Company and were amazed by the unique, labor-intensive process behind the creation of a Plains tile. They wanted to share a few pictures to show you just how unique it is!

    mckee2

    The process starts with a liquid resin which is colored and then mixed with a hardening agent.

    mckee3

    The resulting mixture is poured into a spinning drum until it reaches the perfect consistency.

    mckee4

    When ready, the hardened sheet is peeled out of the spinning drum and cured between heated platens.

    mckee5

    The final product is a beautiful Plains tile!

    mckee6

    Have you ever thought about how your office furniture is made? If you don’t work in this industry, you probably haven’t! We all know what it’s like to get so caught up with work that we take for granted the tools that help support us throughout the workday. So, next time you stop to admire your workspace, remember that behind every beautiful HON product is a beautiful story.

  • How Workplace Trends Affect Seating by Amanda Archer

    Panels are dropping. Footprints are shrinking.  These are two common workplace trends that we’ve heard over and over again.  But, have you ever stepped back and asked yourself, “how does this affect seating?”

    Lower panels and light-scale environments make seating more visible throughout the floor plan.  As a result, continuity of seating across all applications becomes very important.  To address this need, HON offers families of seating.  “Families” are comprised of many seating solutions in one universal series, creating a coordinated design language throughout your entire office.

    The photo below exemplifies how our newest seating collection, Endorse, can fit seamlessly into any office space. Whether it is a conference room, private office, workstation or collaborative area, the Endorse collection offers the perfect solution

    ArcherBlog1

    Another exciting change happening in our seating portfolio is the addition of Momentum seating fabrics into our core fabric offering.  HON has added 14 new patterns and over 200 colorways ranging from bright to neutral.  Learn more about what HON has to offer by viewing theMomentum and Perspectives Color Card.

  • Office Design Trends for 2014

    Recent years have seen a major shift in office design. Collaboration, flexibility, and mobility have replaced the cramped spaces and private offices of the past as companies and institutions seek environments that encourage interaction and innovation. A new generation of workers has brought new values and work habits with them, and designers have been reenergized by the challenge of making work spaces to meet those needs. Here are a few trends that are driving office design in the second decade of the 21st century.

    More Open Space

    spaceMany companies are finding that opening up the work space with unassigned tables and lounges encourage employees to mix and mingle to brainstorm and work collaboratively. Today’s workers have grown up in a world full of distractions and have learned to tune them out, so open areas with movement and a mixture of sounds is more energizing to them than quiet isolation. Lower walls and open spaces let employees interact more freely and feel more like part of a team.

     

    Increased Mobility

    mobilityAs office equipment evolves so that workers aren’t tethered to one spot by wires and cords, the ability to move around lets them change their environment rather than being stuck at a desk all day. And as employers and employees alike become more aware of the negative health impact of remaining stationary, the ability to move about and the use of ergonomic furnishings adds to a sense of well-being and productivity.

     

     

     

     

    More Visual Stimulation

    visual-workstationInstead of confining workers to a static, dull workstation, companies are finding that offices with more open vistas, a view to the outdoors or even access to courtyards and roof decks, plants, and stimulating colors all increase productivity in the new generation of employees.

     

     

     

    More and Less Formal Dining and Break Areas

    space-2With less structure and easier access to dining and break areas, people feel better relaxed and part of the organization. It’s the same trend that’s happening in home design with less importance placed on formal dining rooms in favor of more open spaces to relax and interact over the always enjoyable act of refreshing themselves.

     

     

    For an in-depth look at the latest workspace design trends, Gensler & Associates, an international architecture and design firm, has a 2014 Design Forecast that highlights six areas they think will have a major impact on workplace design in the years to come.

    These trends aren’t going unnoticed at Planet Office Furniture, either.

  • Get the Best Performance from Office Cubicles with Innovative Solutions by HON

    Cubicle workstations have long been recognized as an efficient way to house large numbers of workers while reducing distractions and giving them a fair measure of privacy. While they’ve been around in various forms for quite a while, cubicles came into their own in the late 1950s when a designer named Robert Propst was hired to rethink office employees’ personal space. His “Action Office” debuted in 1964 and the rush to cubicles was on.

    The often compact work area of cubicles puts a premium on efficient use of the space they contain, and refinements of the concept has continued through the present. It has even evolved to the point that CEOs of Silicon Valley companies like Intel and Hewlett-Packard have begun moving out of enclosed offices to cubicles to be closer to the “energy centers” of their businesses.

    This has led to several innovative designs of the original, plain-vanilla office cubicles and the realization that when designing cubicle workspaces, it’s important to consider how they will be used. A call center worker needs less space than someone at an agency or business who will have clients or coworkers in the enclosure for face-to-face contact. Furniture, workspaces and storage need to be sufficient to the task being done and scaled to the size of the workspace.

    Manufacturers like HON have designed and built workstations by the thousands and have learned how to make them work efficiently and comfortably.

    hon-accelerate-systemThe HON Accelerate system combines style, selection and quality in a collection that offers high performance workstations with unparalleled value. It’s designed to adapt and grow with your business while offering a wide range of options to maximize your design freedom.

     

    abound-frame-&-tile-systemHON’s Abound Frame & Tile Systems give everything you need to outfit reception and open areas to team spaces and private offices. Its frameless glass tiles give access to performance-enhancing natural light while defining personal space and creating clear sightlines.

     

     

    initiate-systemThe Initiate System from HON is simple to specify, order and install. It’s an exceptional value while maintaining the look, fit and durability you expect from HON.
