This sedentary life with its often monotonous routines has a price. Headaches, aching joints, repetitive strain injury... not to mention what happens to joy at work and productivity. Research has shown that bad furniture not only affects us purely physically but also brings down our mood and energy, and even makes us lazy, comfortable and less creative. Which should be reason enough for every company to prioritise interior design, for there is nothing more expensive than sick and distracted employees.
