MOVE Standing Office Furniture: AUT Staff/Student team

One way to decrease time spent in sedentary behaviour is to transform the traditional office environment to one where standing and movement is encouraged. Move Office Furniture, a collaboration between the Human Potential Centre and the School of Art and Design, can provide this transformation. The furniture includes standing desks and anti-ergonomic chairs. The chairs have purposely been designed to be uncomfortable so that users are encouraged to spend more time standing and less time sitting. The Human Potential Centre has already been outfitted with the furniture.
