    L-shaped desk design: functional and modern models
    by Gebesa | 23 June 2022 |

    The right work desk can make a big difference in the productivity of employees. L-shaped office desks are one of the best choices because of their versatility and elegance.

    L-shaped desks are characterized by having a 90° right-angled extension, forming 2 work areas.


    The main area is where we will perform our daily work.  The complementary wing will serve as a support for all those tasks that we need. Thus, its location is strategically designed so that you can access any point of the table without moving too much. 

    This auxiliary area can be used, for example, to keep all the tools tidy and to be able to carry out your routine with greater comfort and efficiency. Likewise, it is also usually the area where telephones, folders, filing cabinets, and printers, among others, are placed.


    Normally it is recommended to use the computer in the widest part of the table. So that it is in front of us and we have a comfortable position to work.


    The 90° L desk from URBAN offers generous space, making it possible to serve the clientele by placing extra chairs. 

    When we have space problems in the office and it is not possible to place another desk, the L-shaped desk gives us the option to place another workspace for another collaborator and create work islands with different shapes, breaking the uniformity of the office. 

    G-Connect Option C features a file cabinet as an immediate archive for important documents that we use on an ongoing basis.


    Perfect for middle management executives, the Peninsula L group from CYBER will help you create collaborative offices and hold meetings with several people, where access to a meeting room is not available. It has an ergonomic design, easy assembly, and voice and data conduction hidden in its firm metallic structure.


    The Executive L-shaped set is ideal for private offices. Its design is perfect for senior and middle management positions, as it offers ample space to work, as well as a safe place to store important documents.

    What to look for in your ideal office chair?
    by Gebesa | 13 June 2022 |

    The search for an ideal office chair can be complicated, especially if you don't know what you're looking for. Everyone has certain needs and there are many considerations to factor into your decision.

    Overlooking an important feature of your new chair could affect your health. Poor back support, a forward-leaning neck, or lack of arm support are just a few examples of problems associated with the wrong furniture that will ultimately lead to problems. 


    1. Ergonomics

      A chair without adjustability is not ergonomic at all. Look for chairs that have multiple adjustment options to ensure constant comfort. Especially if multiple people will be using the office chair, you should make sure that all elements of the chair are adjustable. This includes the armrests, seat, and backrest.

    2. Suitable upholstery

      It is recommended that it be upholstered with materials designed to withstand continuous use.

    3. Adjustable height

      Your chair should be adjustable in height according to your height and more specifically to the length of your legs. It is estimated that for 90% of people, the correct height is 17 to 20 in above the floor, allowing for proper positioning of the chair and work screen.

    4. Lumbar support

      The best work chairs are those that support your spine from top to bottom and have a backrest that protects and maintains the natural inward curvature of the spine. 

    5. Armrests 

      They should allow us to maintain a comfortable posture, forming a 90º angle with our arms. This element aims to help you keep your forearm in a horizontal position so that you can rest your wrists on the desk without deviations or efforts that become injuries in the long run. 

    6. Wheels

      The wheels on the base allow for greater comfort when changing posture or moving around the workstation. It is recommended to look for 5-legged chairs with wheels, this will give you greater stability and mobility in your workspace.


    The LOFT executive chair has an ergonomic design made of resistant and soft tactile leather that provides optimal support and comfort. 


    The center-tilt mechanism of this chair allows for recline release and fixed position locking. It also features a height-adjustable function that allows it to adapt to the user's desired posture. 


    Its materials and aesthetic projects an image of elegance that will make your office a more sophisticated workspace.

    What’s the right height for your desk?
    by Gebesa | 4 April 2022 |

    The right choice of furniture for your office has to do with decorative aspects and with taking care of our body and mind daily. 

    The right height of an office desk is one of the main elements to consider when it comes to avoiding problems related to poor posture


    When the desk is too high, you raise your shoulders. But, on the other hand, when the desk is too low, you start working in a crouched position.

    This can cause physical pain, but also difficulty concentrating, reduced productivity and even more serious health consequences.


    Office desks usually have a height between 26-30 inches, with a height of 28-29 inches being common. This height is ideal for a user of between 64-74 inches in height to be able to work comfortably while maintaining good posture at all times.


    An office desk should allow free movement of the legs. We must have space between the desk and our legs so that they are not compressed. 


    Having a desk with the right height is much easier with a height-adjustable desk (link). It allows for better adaptation to the user's anatomy at any given moment while extending the functionality of the desk.


    What’s the right sitting posture?


    1. The monitor is below the horizontal visual axis and should be at least one arm's length away. If the screen is too close or at the wrong height, stiffness forms in the shoulder and neck areas.
    2. The keyboard and mouse should be aligned with the elbows. This way, the torso is not loaded on one side, which avoids tension in the shoulder, back, and neck muscles. 
    3. Use armrests. These prevent the hands from twisting and protect joints, tendons, and nerves from the hand to the elbow. 
    4. The pelvis should be slightly tilted, ergonomic chairs and cushions contribute to this. 
    5. The feet should be supported and if possible parallel to the floor. The body automatically acquires a healthier posture and the load is distributed evenly over the body.

    Follow our tips to avoid physical discomfort and optimize your work environment. Curious about which desk is right for you? Discover all the options that Gebesa (link) has for you.
