    on the rise

    Workplace pioneers are switching from sitting to standing desks. Studies have found that standing for at least one quarter of the day can reduce a person's risk for obesity by 32%.

    Health-conscious employers are promoting a more natural, relaxing, and physically engaging working environment, using an assortment of innovations and technologies that range far beyond the standing desk. These include dynamic and connected lighting experiences that enhance comfort and productivity by supporting and responding to employees’ needs.
