Is Second-hand Office Furniture a Feature of Interior Design Trends?

NEW Herman Miller Setu chairsIn recent years, office interiors have felt the influence of Scandi design. Stylish minimalism has coupled with natural materials, house plants and ergonomic office chairs. The aim has been to create calm work environments which promote employee well-being and productivity.

As we start the New Year, a new design style is developing many of the Scandi Principles. Known as Japandi, there is still a respect for simplified forms, muted colours and a connection with nature. This continues the design principles that we’ve embraced, but with an oriental twist.

Japandi might be a new word to add to our vocabulary, but what has it got to do with second-hand office furniture?

One event will get us all looking East this year, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Back in 2012, London prepared ‘the greenest games’ to date, but Japan has 18 new sustainability objectives to achieve. This event promises to be a showcase for athletic prowess and the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle.

We expect that the global focus on this sustainable Games to impact on design thinking. Why splash out on new office desks and chairs when there is the option to buy used office furniture? If you opt for quality second-hand desks and chairs, there is scope to save money, as well as reducing the environmental impact.

The Olympic Legacy and Sustainable Design

When looking at supply chains and resources management, the Olympic committee has opted against buying new. To give a few examples, the medals will be made from recycled electronic devices and the podiums from processed plastic waste. This is certainly a fresh approach to event management and may initially sound less desirable than buying new.

It is true that we all need to change our perception of pre-owned or used goods. They need not be a compromise. Tokyo could inspire us all to become open to sustainable solutions.
