AKA Design Welcome The Rise Of Flexible Working

News Image
Sit-stand desks are said to be beneficial towards a person's health, mood and productivity, according to research, so it's no surprise that AKA Design have experienced an increase in requests for their rise-and-fall desks.

This month, the company installed one of its custom rise-and-fall grading desks in Splice Post's new grading and viewing theatre, as part of a wider refurbishment project. With two facilities in East London, Splice Post is an independent post production house, creating content for broadcasters, independent film and commercials. The new AKA rise-and-fall desk was designed to house Splice's FilmLight Baselight colour grading system.

Guy Wilson, Managing Director, AKA Design, said: "With the typically-long hours worked in post-production, it's very helpful to be able to stand and vary your working position. The rise-and-fall desk has presets for height, making it easy for different users to work in Splice's new grading theatre without fear of losing someone else's settings. There are custom light presets in the room too, providing complete control over your working environment."

In 2016, AKA installed 58 of its rise-and-fall offline editing desks at The Farm Group's new facility in Newman Street, London.

"There has been interest in the rise-and-fall desks from audio customers too," Guy added, "not just editing and grading facilities, as this style of working continues to grow in popularity."
