We’re living in a post-pandemic world, but the threat of Covid still remains, albeit in reduced form. It’s a virus we’re going to have to learn to live with, and that can be problematic for employees still suffering jitters at the thought of getting back to the office.
It’ll be some time before those fears subside, but fluidconcepts has always been acutely aware of the need to press on. Our Orbit curved workstations were initially designed for privacy and concentration, but we also understood that they could be used to reassure employees going back to the office.
The first noticeable trait of the Orbit line is how stylish and futuristic they look. They bring a modern sensibility to any office environment thanks to their design, and the unique way they interlink with one another. In fact, that’s one of the biggest attractions of the entire product line. The curvature of Orbit workstations provides a natural buffer that grants privacy and distance from other employees, without dooming them to a cubicle-style fate. The result is a unique and eye-catching desking layout with a modular design that can be deployed in any office workspace.
The objective is to bridge the gap between two specific needs - employee reassurance, and a sense of team spirit and camaraderie. Orbit curved workstations allow employees to work together without being isolated, but they also provide a measure of distancing that vastly reduces any leftover chance of viral transmission. It’s the best of both worlds - the social interaction we so desperately need in the wake of a pandemic, and the slow path to regaining our confidence and moving forward with life.
The workstations can be deployed in a number of configurations including waves and tangents, or as individual “pods” that can be used independently in various locations around the office. Whether interlinked or freestanding, they allow employees to always feel safe thanks to their inherent design. The continuous curve aspect of these workstations makes them ergonomic, and that also helps when saving space around the office. The Orbit line takes up as much as space as it needs to, and not a square foot more.
In addition to its unique design, Orbit curved workstations also provide several options when it comes to lower and upper dividers, which can add a bit more social distancing into the mix. These come in a choice of many laminate styles, resin plastic, frosted, clear, metal, whiteboard, and printed for companies who want to brand their workstations.
They are also available in many different diameters, radii and heights depending on specific requirements for sizes and dimensions. This offers companies extra choice when it comes to filling their office space with the right workstations. To top it all off, the Orbit curved workstation line also allows for 8 wire/4 circuit electrical and data systems to be installed, adding a further layer of convenience and tech-readiness to the office design layout.
To sum it up, the Orbit curved workstation line is one of the most unique and efficient workplace furniture options for companies who want to reassure their employees in a post-Covid business landscape. Not only do they provide the right amount of distancing and protection for employees to feel safe, but they also provide a fun and energetic workspace for them to focus on their tasks, while feeling great about their decision to return to the office.
