Staples Canada has joined forces with gry mattr and ergoCentric to launch the Longevity ergonomic desk, which was first previewed at the Interior Design Show 2023 in Toronto last week.
Designed for those engaging in a hybrid work environment, the Longevity ergonomic desk is from the gry mattr collection, which was designed by Joe Mimran and furniture manufacturer ergoCentric. The height-adjustable desk is one of Staples’ first Hybrid Certified products, and it’s designed to reduce stress and increase productivity while also providing a healthier workplace.
You can adjust the desk between seated and standing positions to help improve circulation throughout the body. It uses up and down controls with three-position memory. The motors are quiet so there’s a smooth transition while the desk itself offers a minimal and sleek design.
“Through our research with Angus Reid Group, we know hybrid workers lack comfortability and a sense of well-being in their home office set-up with 55 per cent saying they are missing an ergonomic chair or desk altogether,” says John DeFranco, Chief Commercial Officer, Staples Canada. “That’s why we’ve partnered with leading experts in the field of ergonomics to create future-focused hybrid work solutions to help our customers succeed in the new world of work.”
“We all know the challenges associated with keeping a balanced and healthy lifestyle no matter where or how you work,” adds Joe Mimran, President and Creative Director, Joseph Mimran & Associates Inc. and Lead Creative Director at gry mattr. “We wanted to design something that would help Canadians find that balance effortlessly, in fashion that can be custom-fitted to your needs – all in a stylish and minimal design to further promote the sense of wellness.”
The Longevity™ Height Adjustable Desk is available for $900 at select Staples Canada stores as well through Staples Professional representatives in February.
