After a few experiments we found the solution in the combination of MDF boards and special symbols which are partly cut in during the processing. By this means the table-top is given a perceptibly quieter vibration more similar to solid wood. We also find the round biologically waxed section edge especially pleasing.
These MDF table-tops are only slightly more expensive than the otherwise usual chipboard with PVC or other plasic edge band and therefore within the company’s means for each office workplace.
In terms of ecology and sustainability, the MDF table-tops have definite advantages: they consist 100% of wood, are especially solid and hard wearing and can be thermally disposed of, as they are. In contrast, for chipboard first the PVC or plastic edge band must be separated from the chipboard. The plastic must then be disposed of separately.
In the first place, for us Feng Shui is the design of the work environment. And, in fact, a design which does comfort the employee, supports him and encourages him in his personal development. We wish to encourage the creative side of man and as a result facilitate a lively and affectionate relationship with the environment and our planet.
The people who work in these kinds of enriched rooms and buildings, are addressed emotionally, mentally and spiritually on different levels. They respond intuitively, fundamentally more positively, optimistically, affectionately, understandingly and consistently than in a comparatively grey, machine-like and strictly geometric environment.
A meticulous and holistic design of the working environment, however, can promote creativeness and significantly contribute to the wellbeing of body and mind. This design also promotes productivity and innovation.
We direct our attention to the basic principles and contexts. This facilitates the generation of additional possibilities by means of integral individual office planning. Creative ideas and concepts of interior designers and architects and their effect on the health and capability of the individual and the entire team can be analyzed in advance using the Vital-Office® Concept.
