Working from home gained a whole new perspective after the pandemic. It was considered a luxury for the few, it has become a need for many.
The boundaries between private and office life have shrunk and this trend will continue (albeit to a lesser extent) in the coming years.
This is why a class of products and solutions is emerging to improve the working environment, wherever it is. From smart home technologies to desktop fitness, these items (some bizarre, indeed) promise to expand the possibilities of working from home, with more comfort and flexibility.
1. Walkolution, the hamster becomes bipedal (or vice versa)
As the hours of sitting get longer, agility tends to decrease (and I don't mention disc disease). To address the problem, Walkolution offers users a much healthier lifestyle.
The first device of its kind (and I would like to say), the treadmill of the German startup of the same name is silent and not motorized. It has an integrated desk and ergonomic backrest, to allow you to walk while doing work from home.
Easy to close and ecological, it also provides incentives on an ethical level: every 10.000 steps of a user, Walkolution plant a tree. Below, bipedal hamsters: on their way!
2. B1D5000, the multi-purpose hybrid monitor from Philips
The work-from-home monitor developed by the Dutch house offers users a new combination of dual displays, which could become a trend in the near future.
Specifically, the "companion" of a normal monitor is an electronic ink display that optimizes consumption and performance, and is great for texts.
Right that in the age of a thousand screens (on average we use two even if we watch TV) each screen does its best for what it is for.
3. Foresty, the soundproofing “saplings”
Noise cancellation continues to be a key element in the workplace, and with work from home even more so.
Foresty combines sound absorption, visual privacy and space efficiency. These are colorful tree-like acoustic panels, available in four different sizes and various colors.
Their modularity allows you to customize any space: a small silent "forest".
4. Eclear Mist, a glass of mist takes away ailments
In closed places (and also applies to work from home, not just the office) the potential exposure to bacteria has become a concern.
Eclear Mist breaks down dry air and helps resist viruses. This portable plastic humidifier can be used anywhere, including cars - all you need is a glass of water and a USB port.
Small details that enhance an environment.
