ABOUT THE AWARD

We don’t move about enough – and in the office we always adopt the same posture. This can contribute to many lifestyle diseases. For this reason, our working worlds need to change. The ActiveOffice® AWARD identifies and awards the best international product solutions which have a positive impact on the health of people in working environments. The competition raises awareness within the industry, accelerates the introduction of new products, and informs users about successful models. The AWARD 2018 was advertised at the leading trade fair for modern working environments, ORGATEC, in front of 600 exhibiting furniture manufacturers.

POINTS SYSTEM

The international expert jury tests and evaluates the competing models in several phases according to a points system. The products are rated according to the following system:

  • Motivation: Is the product fun to use? Does it encourage intuitive use? How innovative is the product?
  • Design: Is the product appealing, self-explanatory & functional? Is it characterised by a pleasant design and attractive materials?
  • Movement: Does the product encourage physical activity? How strongly is the musculoskeletal system activated during use? To what extent is the promotion of physical activity proven?
  • Practicality: Is the product appropriate? Is the product secure and safe to use? How functional is it?
  • Senses: Which senses are addressed? What are the haptics like, how do the surfaces feel?
  • Total score: A total score from 0 to 100 – the ActiveOffice® Index – is calculated from the individual results. The winners are determined on this basis.
