Now that we live and work in an ongoing global pandemic environment, it is important to equip your office accordingly. To ensure your employees and visiting-customers feel safe and secure, we recommend getting office furniture that facilitates social distancing. Your furniture of choice must also be easy to maintain, given that the Covid-19 virus lingers on various surfaces. Here are a few office design ideas to promote better social distancing in the office space.
Protect Your Employees & Customers With Comfort Furniture’s Acrylic Shield
Our Comfort Furniture’s Acrylic Shield is designed to facilitate social distancing in the office, which is an easy-to-clean transparent acrylic shield that helps to enforce safe distancing at reception counters, communal tables, office desks and more. It comes with a stable and sturdy base, eliminating the need for drilling or adhesives. It turns your existing tables and workstations into social distancing-compliant furniture in mere seconds and grants peace of mind to everyone working in the office’s communal spaces. We especially recommend them if your office pantry or canteen provides hot meals for staff as ‘unprotected’ food is simply not hygienic.

Get ‘Flexible’ Furniture Pieces That Complement Your Office Interior Design
There’s zero room for error when it comes to sustaining your business and making it thrive in an ongoing pandemic landscape. As the need for cleanliness reaches a new high, it’s imperative that you have office furniture pieces that are highly essential, easy-to-clean, space-saving and/or portable. Keeping your employees safe from the virus goes a long way in ensuring your company’s productivity, health and wellbeing.
1) Highly Essential Furniture Ideas
Every company in Singapore deserves to have office pods to create a personal space for rest, better work concentration and social distancing. Even though work collaborations and brainstorming sessions are important to the business, but employees do need the privacy and social distancing peace of mind to work better. This is where placing solo office pods and group meeting pods within the open office layout come in handy. Comfort Furniture’s Lull Privacy Pod – Solo and Lull Meeting Pod – Talk Plus are your go-to soundproof pods that provide peaceful, solitary working and focused small group discussions. For more options, check out our dedicated privacy pod collection. We also offer customisation to meet your specific office preferences.
Other than privacy pods, employers should also look into providing office lockers for their employees. Everyone can store their work files and personal belongings safely while making the office interior design look fabulous. Moreover, it’s crucial for office workstation tables to be sanitised and cleaned regularly. Therefore, it is wise to store items that we seldom use into lockers.
2) Easy-To-Clean Furniture Ideas
Begin by investing in office chairs made with mesh, fabric or synthetic leather as they are easier to clean. When it comes to office workstations, side tables or coffee tables, prioritise laminate and glass tables. As for sofas, either get those with washable covers or protect your fabric sofas with products from 3M ScotchGard. There’s the protector series to give your fabric sofas a layer of protection, and there’s the cleaner series that cleanses your fabric sofas or furniture in general.
3) Portable Furniture Ideas
In the midst of an ongoing pandemic, life in the office will certainly need to comply with social distancing practices. These practices will also require us to move around more, which creates the need for portable furniture in the office.
For starters, invest in furniture on wheels like mobile office cabinets and pedestals. When your employees are required to relocate their workstations, these cabinets will ease the process. .
Last but not least, consider getting furniture pieces that make social distancing easier like modular sofas or stools and poufs. This ensures that short breaks or discussions conducted in the lobby and breakout area are social distancing-compliant.
As the workforce continues to work in an ongoing pandemic office environment, providing a safe workspace is essential to safeguarding every company’s greatest asset: the employees. Equip your office with furniture pieces that are apt for the ongoing pandemic at Comfort Furniture, Singapore!
