Storage is a big challenge in almost any type of interior space, but it’s significantly more impactful in office environments, where lack of space is a common issue. In modern, ergonomically-friendly workspaces, however, space is given a lot of thought, and furniture manufacturers are constantly on the lookout for clever and stylish ways of mitigating storage challenges. Following are four pieces of furniture that will enhance the storage opportunities in your work space without impeding functionality or diminishing its visual appeal:
Mobile to go everywhere you want it to, the wide Alliance pedestal range offers the perfect storage space for environments that rely on flexibility and versatility more than on anything else. The practical mobile pedestal provides compact space for documents and files, in reception areas, or near workstations. Customization is what makes this piece a must-have – the endless possibilities of drawer configurations and pull styles, as well as the wide variety of widths and lengths, in addition to the sturdy construction, soldered joints, and ball-bearing glides for easy access, turn the common file pedestal into a robust and highly functional office asset. Encouraging dynamic sitting and standing, Artopex’s mobile pedestal comes equipped with a seat cushion, while the double-wheel casters provides exceptionally smooth running across any surface.
Third on the list of smart office storage solutions is a storage solution specifically designed for employees whose work style is characterized by linearity, order, and efficiency. Whether you have a home or business office, organization is everything – or at least a crucial part of your work life. The storage of files, documents, plans, binders, and any other paperwork must be carried out in an organized and efficient manner, so that items can be quickly accessed when needed. That’s exactly what Artopex’s custom file cabinets offer workers: an easy, quick, and highly-accessible solution to storing important files. Available in both front-to-back and side-to-side filing configurations and a variety of colors, sizes, finishes, and style fronts, the cabinets are fairly easy to incorporate in any type of business environment.
Artopex’s storage towers offer maximum versatility in storing large volumes of documents and files, but also miscellaneous items and wardrobe. More than that, the solid, sturdy construction, and clean, contemporary styling prompt business owners to look at them not as simple storage solutions, but also as a way to give the space character and form. The Artopex Personal Office Storage Unit collection offers both vertical file drawers and combination bookcases, as well as a closed-door wardrobe unit, responding to a wide array of individual user requirements. The best part is, they can be compactly organized by making use of valuable vertical space, at the same time providing an optimal overview of all contents and easy access. Standard sizes start from 65 inches in height, but can be customized to fit any specific office requirements in any configuration. The steel finish ensures the storage tower will maintain its look for years.
As an additional storage option, the eye-catching and practical custom metal bookcases from Artopex efficiently structures and enlivens the space with a wide variety of colors and materials. Durable construction, easily organizable, and simply designed, the custom metal bookcase is perfectly suitable for conference rooms, lobbies, open-office settings, and executive offices. The 2-, 3-, or 4-shelf model offers a contemporary look with its clean and sophisticated lines. All models in the collection boast adjustable shelves and the great convenience of easy assembly. Highly functional and versatile, these are also available with optional perforated shelves, for offices that need to store regular and legal-size documents. The finishes available for Artopex metal bookcases include enamel and metallic paint.
Storage options and furniture from Artopex include everything a business needs to welcome clients, get work done efficiently, keep everything organized, and secure with “Noki,” a feature that is exclusive with Artopex. “Noki” is an ultra secure electronic locking system which eliminates conventional locks and lost keys. With such variety of colors and possible configurations, storage options are no longer confined to hallways and storage rooms – they are starting to be seen as pieces of furniture in their own right and valuable additions to office settings dealing with lack of space.
