Times have changed. The office is light
Lapalma is presenting its proposals for the Light Office, the results of a survey on the new approach to the workplaces and their new interpretations.
For some time now, both the office culture and its planning move around the idea of flexibility and well-being. Not just in office; nowadays we work at home, in an airport, in unexpected places but always connected.
These new habits mean to live in workplaces, often open spaces, with a new flexibility and an increasing need of comfort: by changing the place according to the task, looking for privacy if concentration is needed, meeting with colleagues around large tables or relaxing in a lounge area. The office is getting smarter and smarter, by offering modular solutions, configurable and focused on the well-being.
Among the new items, RYO stool designed by Enzo Berti. An original piece of furniture, rather than a real seat. RYO is a leaning aid, with a de-stressing action, perfect for a conversation room, waiting area, thanks to its freedom of use and adaptability in every working environment (both public and residential).
RYO is not a conventional stool, more of a support aid. It is both versatile and pleasing to use, an agreeable and eccentric object, which will inevitably find its way into all manner of daily uses, whether meeting, waiting or working.
The seat of solid wood, a saddle-like structure, has a smooth curved surface, which has been developed for easy accessibility, and comfort that swivels to allow you to sit whichever way you like. The seat sits on a height adjustable column with a barely visible adjustment lever. The movement of the column is provided by a clever pivot at the base, which allows the user to tilt and swivel according to the desired body position.
With a multitude of functions, RYO is the ideal solution in an office where mobility is important, at home or public areas like cafés, libraries or wherever a support seat is needed for a quick rest while standing.
