Corporate reputation is nowadays getting more importance for manufacturers and consumers alike. A well known brand is that one understood by clients as the one offering positive features. The latter is only achievable when the promise of value offered by a product/ service is aligned to the consumers´ expectations. There is no other way to satisfy them, make them feel comfortable and push them to buy it again. Building a brand is not only a matter of coming up with an appealing logo. In fact office furniture plays a very important role to that respect, despite the fact that normally its value is underestimated. Here are a few facts. There is a strong relation between productivity and the creation of suitable works spaces. But it goes further there is too an important relations between workers´ satisfaction and work spaces. Based on a recent study 37% of workers assume the latter statement. What is more the relation become stronger between workspaces and health. As we advance in a past “post” 70% of European population is likely to suffer health problems caused by being white collar workers. All things considered lead to reflect about the importance given to office furniture. It seems definitely more convenient increases invest on furnishing properly work spaces. It ensures productivity, health, workers´ satisfaction and so on. Those values that support a highly valued brand are given by Spanish manufacturers. Take a few minutes to have a look to our latest catalogue available on our website WWW.FAMO.ES. As you already know, it is worth it!
The latest trend in office interiors bring us to sing an old single by The Beatles: Come together. That is because workspaces focused on co working are becoming more and more demanding and fashionable.
Just to give you an example, the British leading workplace design magazine, ON OFFICE, has selected “The Hub” in Madrid as one of the top ten project of the year. It is a space for social enterprise where a former garage was given a clever adaptive re- use. These kind of coworking areas are especially useful for entrepreneurs and freelance workers, who want to avoid isolation, caused by working at home and promote networking.
Office furniture’s industry is seeking to give a solution for the latter new insight. OFITA, one of the best Spanish office solutions brand, discusses about it in its OFILAB blog. Besides other the well-known manufacturer, STEELCASE, has talked about it in a recent research study. As a result it has highlighted the fact that up to 82% of workers cooperate with others in their daily working live.
To sum up the new goal for workstation manufacturers is that assuring workers´ wellbeing and foster communication among employees. FORMA 5 company has lived up to the market demands thanks to Cubo and Quorum meeting rooms. You can discover what we are talking about by clicking on the “post” title.

Recently ERGONOMA JOURNAL magazine (http://www.ergonoma.com/) has highlighted important data related to ergonomics: One out of six European citizens suffer some kind of disability. It ranges from light to heavy. However it does not always imply absenteeism from work.
The figure is relevant enough. It shows the potential demand for ergonomics products. As not only is it a need for white and blue collar workers, but also is it a right.
In this "post" I have showcased a few office solutions launched by Spanish manufacturers. PLANNING SISPLAMO has come up with office accessories designed for blind employees. Instead VILAGRASA has focused on adjustable clothes stands for disabled people. Finally OFITA and FORMA 5 have manufactured different office seats with ergonomic systems.

I have already read the STYLEPARK article written by Thomas Edelmann on educational furniture and especially libraries.
Actually we are living in turbulent times. Unemployment and public spending cuts are the trending topics. Besides we are living in a new digital era where new ways and communications´ channels are arising and developing.
As a result the article’s author – and myself- has reflected about the future of universities, libraries, schools…Would they be substituted by simple electronic storage devices? Or would their essence as knowledge’s hubs be respected?
Contract furniture plays an important role in reaching the latest option. That one implies keeping the deep essence of educational institutions. Nowadays contract furniture manufacturers are much more than those in charge of transforming raw materials in furniture. Their goal is that of offering solutions suitable for a nice and creativity-enhancing environment.
In accordance to the latter, a few Spanish brands such as ACTIU and ESQUITINO among many others, have launched new range of libraries. In short the kind of furniture that makes more human any public space.
