A new wooden leg version of our Nova Forty range of desking is now available and it comes in single desk and multiple position bench formations. The legs are of solid hardwood with worktops in a choice of MFC or CPL (continuous pressure laminate). With desktop sizes ranging from 1200mm to 1800mm widths and a full range of standard accessories including fabric or perspex screens, cable trays & pedestals, these desks are an exeptionally attractive yet completely practical alternative to the standard norm for both large and small organisations alike. And at prices starting at under £250 per desk position they offer fantastic value for money.

Octopus Interiors have recently completed a refurbishment project for Events company Marketforce at their new office in St John’s Square, London EC1. Over a 4 week period between lease signing and their occupation we carried out a variety of works including re-decorating the entire office, fitting a new kitchen, airconditioning, electrical and data works and we supplied an entirely new set of desks, chairs and associated furniture for their 70 staff. Although at 5500 sq ft it is a little smaller than the previous office, it has gone down well with everyone and is generally considered a very decent upgrade and a very pleasant working environment.

The first phase of decorating is complete at P3P and we have now also fitted Ege carpet tiles to all the floor areas. All looking very good. Phase 2 to start in a weeks time.

Our decorators Mark, Marcus, Matty and Anthony have just started work decorating P3P’s office in a listed period building in Dover Street, Mayfair. In keeping with the style of building, our customer has given us ‘posh paints’ to work with – Little Green, The Paint & Paper Library and Zoffany – some of which we have used before and some of which we haven’t. So we’re keen to report back and let you know what we think. We will also be re-carpeting the entire office once the decorating has been completed with carpet tiles from Ege.

For many years, Worship Street in London EC2 has been the ideal location for financial printing company Perivan to serve its City based customers, but when their new landlord decided to refurbish the entire building recently, they were left with a decision to either move, or stay put but with reduced floor space which was not easy given that they are expanding and taking on more staff. Octopus helped space plan a solution resulting in a higher concentration of desks whilst maintaining a comfortable working environment. Perivan chose our extremely cost effective FortyO desking range and Phase 1 of the installation was completed this week.

We’ve just added a new synchronous mechanism mesh-backed chair to our product range. It’s called FLEXI and it’s beautifully designed and hugely comfortable. Above all, its really competitively priced. Flexi has synchronous mechanism, height adjustable armrests and height adjustable mesh back as standard, plus options on other features and finishes such as seat slide, polished metal base, white seat base & back frame and multi-adjustable armrests (as well as up and down – forwards and back and sideways. We believe this chair is going to be very popular.

We’ve just launched a new website specifically featuring our best value for money office furniture range. This is under a new domain name www.OctopusOfficeFurniture.co.uk and although not complete yet (we still need to add a lot more detail), we hope that it will provide a pleasant browsing experience for SME companies within London looking for decent furniture that doesn’t cost a fortune. Quite the contrary, actually, as everything on the new site is surprisingly low in cost, but high on quality. Enjoy!

The Sidiz task chair, our best selling chair, is now available with an optional white frame rather than the standard black. The Sidiz chair has been immensely successful due to its excellent value for money, high quality build, attractive styling, great level of comfort and the fact that it is equipped as standard with features that often come as optional extras on other chairs. This chair will also be available with a white painted metal base rather than a polished base. Initially, the white chair will be on a lead time of a few weeks whereas the black chair will remain, in general, ex stock and available within a few days of order.
The most significant feature of this chair that sets it apart from the majority of other synchronous mechanism chairs is a control that enables the user to select how far the backrest reclines when in free-floating mode. In my experience, office workers rarely use the synchronous chair in free-floating mode as it was designed to be used and, in my opinion, this is because the chair simply reclines too far backwards and the user’s head and shoulders (and therefore hands) end up too far away from the desk. The spring tension control, or automatic weight adjustment in some of the more advanced chairs, is supposed to compensate for this, but it doesn’t work well for everyone. The recline selection control on the Sidiz chair overcomes this problem and allows the user to get at least some of the benefits out of the synchronous mechanism.
The other chair that does this brilliantly, but in a completely different way, is the Sail chair from Grammer.

We had a special order of desks in Walnut MFC with white modesty panels and an error at the factory lead to too many being produced.

Over the past few years the Clerkenwell district of London has established itself as the UK’s centre for office furniture and design. Just about everyone who is anyone in the office furniture market have their showrooms there and each year Clerkenwell hosts a design week – a sort of open house event where everyone opens their doors to the public. Not sure quite how beneficial it is, but if you’re keen to see what’s new (or established) on the market then pop over to Clerkenwell between 19th and 21st May and follow the crowds.

Electrically operated sit-stand desks don’t have to be out of reach of the average business due to cost. Our new One range is available in 1400mm and 1600mm sizes at prices from around £400 + VAT*. As the name suggests, these Sit-Stand desks give the user the flexibility of either sitting or standing at their desk and the height can be adjusted in an instant at the press of a button. Siting at a desk for prolonged periods, even if you use an advanced ergonomic chair, can be tiring and far from optimal for the back. Your body needs movement so a regular change of working position between sitting and standing throughout the day can be very beneficial.
* Prices subject to minimum order values and contract.
