MARKANT SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE
All Markant office furniture is designed in accordance with the modular concept of the Markant System Architecture. The modular system with its interchangeable components can be set-up in any combination of working tables, conference tables and Bench configurations. The component assembly structure, permits parts can be reused or simply recycled.
Work stations are also required to contribute towards the prevention of physical complaints for staff. Good working posture is often difficult to maintain and requires constant vigilance. Markant for example is able to advise on how to reduce the static load upon neck, shoulders and wrists whilst working behind a monitor. If staff are able to utilise good office furniture and use it well, put simply, the brain is better supplied with oxygen, improving performance. Markant leads the field in these developments which improve employees’ performance and reduce absence due to sick leave.
A strong binding between design and function informs the starting point for the product development process. Form, technology and function are reduced to their core with Markant’s products created in this manner. Simple clarity is evident in working environments created by Markant, with its use of a limited colour range and the introduction of domestic elements. By minimal application of contrasting forms and primary colours, balance of space is achieved. Symmetry and openness play an important role; there are for example no dead-end aisles. This limits the amount of distracting stimulus for the staff, creating a comfortable environment, both physically and emotionally; a pleasant and desirable office space where staff can take pleasure in focusing on the work.
