A Easy Machine was born from the concept of adjusting our sedentary methods throughout the workday. Designed to carry motion and momentum into the workspace, the four-piece assortment is one reply to making a more healthy day spent behind a desk. Created by HeijltjesAkkaya for Dutch furnishings model Prooff, A Easy Machine depends on ergonomics and engineering – pulleys, weights, and levers – that may be powered by human power.
One piece stood out to us greater than the others: the Counterweight Desk. Taking intermittent breaks all through the day and commonly adjusting your posture could be distractions, so altering our behaviors is a little bit of a problem. The seemingly static sit/stand Counterweight Desk meets us within the center. Constructed utilizing folded metal and industrial components, a cylindrical counterweight balances the tabletop and its body – making the floor float at your required top. Straightforward to make use of and transfer, the movement the consumer makes is mimicked by the shifting components of the desk with out using an exterior energy supply.
“A Easy Machine was born from our expertise of making an attempt to enhance our personal approach of working. Failing to search out becoming options in present work furnishings, we have been curious what would successfully stimulate ourselves to having a extra lively workday,“ mentioned Simon Akkaya, designer at HeijltjesAkkaya.
