Meanwhile, more and more companies are adopting the use of sit-stand desks for better health and well-being of their employees. Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs created a "slatted slab of wood that folds out into a chair, a table, and even a basket." Lastly, Finnish company Framery is "gaining fame worldwide for assembling 'silent spaces' that integrate well indoors."
