Desks shouldn’t have to be one-size-fits-all. HON recognized the need for a solution with greater customization that would allow users to create spaces to support their individual work styles.

The word “concinnity” is defined as the skillful and harmonious arrangement or fitting together of the different parts of something, which makes it the perfect name for our newest and largest laminate desk line. Meet Concinnity – Upscale Design.  Everyday Practicality.  Offering a coordinated suite of laminate desk and storage components that let you create a custom look without custom products, there are endless reasons why we are so excited about our newest solution!

NEW! HON Concinnity Laminate Desks

PERFECT FOR ANYONE.  BUT TOTALLY YOU.
With office layouts, one size never fits all.  In order to be productive, you need a workspace designed around you!  Worksurfaces configured around your work style.  Storage that puts everything right where you not only need it, but want it.  Accessories that help you stay organized but put your personality on display.  Concinnity allows individual work styles to dictate the surroundings, not the other way around.

PRIVATE YET ACCESSIBLE.
Focused one minute – an unscheduled meeting the next.  Even when you plan your day, it’s bound to change.  Concinnity helps executives get organized, stay focused and quickly connect.  Squeeze more vertical storage into a smaller footprint with taller cabinets.  Convert a private office into a personal meeting space with mobile tables.  Concinnity helps you stay prepared for whatever comes next.

WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
As we all know, most work doesn’t happen behind closed doors. It’s happening out in the open.  Concinnity’s versatile layout, design and storage options help small groups team up while allowing worker bees to remain focused.  Turn open layouts into neighborhoods.  Give nomads a place to call home.  Allow workstation warriors to enjoy a healthy standing-height alternative.  Concinnity supports the needs of many, while indulging every individual.

KEEP YOUR OPTIONS OPEN.
Concinnity gives you exactly what you have been craving – TOTAL CUSTOMIZATION! Modular storage pedestals create a place for everything.  A variety of worksurface shapes and sizes perfectly fit the way you work.  Modesty panels define boundaries and increase privacy.  Don’t be afraid to express yourself!

MORE CONTROL.  LESS CHAOS.
Jackets.  Family Photos. Work Bag.  We all have things we need stowed away or proudly displayed.  Concinnity allows you to totally personalize your environment.  Open and closed units let you decide what gets displayed.  Mix and match rich laminates and sleek metallic finishes.  The sky’s the limit! Concinnity doesn’t just help you rethink your storage – it totally defines it!

TIME TO ACCESSORIZE.
It’s always good to have options.  I mean, who doesn’t love options? Concinnity provides the opportunity to create a space that’s totally you.  Personalize your selection with a mix of rich hardwood laminate, metal and frosted accents.  Add distinctive handles and organizational tools.  Route power right where it’s needed.  When you get to make all the decisions, you get exactly what you want and we wouldn’t want it any other way!

HON's Concinnity desk and storage is customizable

See? We weren’t exaggerating! These are just a few of the reasons why we are so excited about our newest laminate desk line.  Concinnity sets the bar high for both modern and traditional spaces and brings a unified aesthetic throughout the entire office.  Oh, and let’s not forget, it’s backed by the HON’s Full Lifetime Warranty!

A couple months ago I read an article about the impact March Madness has on a company’s workforce. It is estimated that, during the month of March, employers in America lose up to $4B in productivity as a result of employees watching live games and tracking their playoff brackets.

But the truth is, distractions like these exist every day, and not just because of March Madness. As office furniture continues to trend towards more light-scale and open plan furniture, it’s important that we don’t forget the importance of heads-down, focused work. The HON Company provides many solutions that decrease the risk of disruptions, especially within an open plan office. Here are a few examples of our favorites:

Voi® Privacy Screens
Voi privacy screens provide a division of workspace between users, while also offering an opportunity to add a pop of color.

Panel Systems with Frameless Glass
Adding frameless glass on top of panels allows light to shine through while breaking up the visibility between users. You can tailor this premium look to your own preference by choosing between clear or frosted glass.

Shared Overhead Storage between Users
In addition to distractions being a bother for employees in an open floorplan, these layouts typically have less storage. Using shared overheads between users is a great way to address both of these concerns.

What are some office design tips you use to minimize distractions in the open office space?

HON’s Coordinate Standing Height Bases have turned the corner! Along with the existing 2-leg/3-stage model, you can now select a 3-leg/3-stage model that can be used in L-shaped configurations. Supporting the increasing popularity of sit-to-stand workstations, Coordinate Height Adjustable Bases deliver a healthier style of working by allowing a seamless transition between sitting and standing throughout the day.

Coordinate_Private Office_2

Aptly named, Coordinate Height Adjustable Bases were designed to coordinate with a vast array of HON product lines. Not only does Coordinate feature a simple, 3-stage design that can be integrated into almost any existing space – from open plan workstations to private offices and collaborative areas   but it also offers the perfect solution for new office spaces, where the need for more flexible furniture solutions are on the rise. With adjustable height options ranging from 25 1/2″-51 1/2″ and an optional memory control that allows the user/s to select from one of four preset levels, Coordinate makes it easy to meet individual preferences and encourages a healthier approach to the workday.

NEW! Coordinate 3-Leg Height Adjustable Base

The option to stand throughout the day allows for increased movement, which not only improves circulation and posture but can also have a positive impact on employee motivation and focus. Combat midday fatigue when you work at the standing height setting, and alleviate unwanted tension or strain on the legs and feet when you switch to the seated height position. When workers feel comfortable and have control over their work area, they can experience decreased workplace stress and improved work performance and overall wellbeing.
