Workplace Inspiration : It's all in the design

Posted by Richard Ferris on Nov 30, 2016 11:58:19 AM

Here at SB Seating design is a big deal. We don't just make chairs that are amazing to sit on, we create features for rooms, chairs which can define an environment and inspire new ways of thinking, new ways of being.

In a new series of blogs published every week, we will be exploring how design plays an intergral role in the development of all our brands. Over the following weeks we will discuss how our chairs are created, how people are using our products, and how evolving workplace practices are redefining the role of the chair, with the aim of a deeper understanding of how we can help you make the most of your room, whatever room.
