Health from Ergonomics

The Biomorph line of furniture is ergonomically designed to facilitate comfortable and healthful computing. Biomorph desks offer a healthy alternative for those who have concerns over the ever increasing cases of repetitive stress injuries and back and neck problems associated with intense computer use and inappropriate furniture. The patented, unconventional design complements the human body and encourages natural, comfortable and efficient movement. Increased productivity and personal well-being are the immediate and long term benefits of working in an ergonomically designed environment incorporating Biomorph ergonomic furniture.

 

Flexibility from Design

The hallmark characteristics of the Biomorph line - adjustable, contoured surfaces, integration of technology, 'comfort' edges, mobility, and expandability - all lead to increased flexibility that responds to today's workplace needs. Central to the line are the patented, contoured worksurface designs, which are the result of extensive research and development. The surfaces are precision crafted from solid surfaces and beautifully finished with a durable, baked-on coating. We do not use plastic laminates and taped edges that can chip or break.

Biomorph desks feature rock-solid steel frames with an exceptional range of adjustments that are manufactured in Denmark, Germany and the USA, leaders in efficient engineering. Because Biomorph® desks are stand-alone units and can be fully mobile, they can be re-configured at a moment's notice, requiring minimal installation and virtually no maintenance. The several basic Biomorph models represent a starting point from which to grow a highly flexible work environment that maximizes floor space and user needs, whether at home or the office.

 

Comfort from Adjustability

The key to good ergonomics is adjustability, and Biomorph® desks can be instantly adjusted for a perfect 'fit' to accommodate each individual. In all models, both the keyboard surface and the monitors or monitor surface are independently height-adjustable, achieved by a combination of mechanism options that are lift-and-lock, spring-loaded, crank operated or electrically powered. This total adjustability allows the user to work standing or sitting, with multi-user flexibility, thereby ensuring a healthy, comfortable posture in any situation.

"Until Biomorph, computer furniture was not made to incorporate the computer or to fit the user," says industrial designer Stephen Barlow-Lawson, who created Biomorph in 1991 based on his personal needs as a computer user.

"This has caused discomfort, pain and sometimes serious injury. Biomorph adjustable computer furniture are designed for computer equipment, and with one important added factor – for the people who have to sit at them."
