NeoCon 2018: If you’re looking for a sit-stand workstation that has a better chance of being used, check out this new one designed for convenience

by Brianna Crandall — August 8, 2018 — Ergonomic workplace solutions provider ESI, a Fellowes brand, recently announced a corporate rebranding and introduced several new products at the NeoCon 2018 contract furnishings show. Leveraging 30 years of experience, the new branding with consultancy Peopledesign emphasizes the company’s focus on providing movement-inspired products designed to enable people to adapt comfortably to technology at work, at home, and in between.

At NeoCon 2018, ESI introduced the Lotus DX sit-stand workstation, described below, as well as the ergonomic Elea Office Chair and Motific occasional tables.

Lotus DX sit-stand workstation

At NeoCon, ESI launched the Lotus DX sit-stand workstation to help more people make the switch to an active work style and incorporate movement in their daily routine. Research from the National Institutes of Health indicates that individuals who sit more than 23 hours a week are 64 percent more likely to die from heart disease. Considering the average person sits more than 12 hours a day, the need for workspace solutions that allow frequent movement is at an all-time high.

The newest member of the Lotus line of sit-stand workstations, the Lotus DX, is designed with proprietary features that make use easier and more convenient so that consumers are more likely to more likely to adopt — and maintain — the healthier habit of shifting between sitting and standing positions while working.

As a part of its consumer research and testing programs, the company has identified the “pain points” users face when working with sit-stand desks across the category and has thoughtfully designed superior solutions to keep users moving and focused on what matters.

Since new users may discontinue use of a sit-stand workstation if it is inconvenient to use in any way, the entire line of Lotus workstations was designed with features that make it effortless to use and be productive — eliminating nuisances such as cord management, limited height settings, and issues with cleanliness that are reportedly struggles in other sit-stands across the industry.

Research shows a 46 percent increase in workplace productivity with the use of standing desks, so you want a sit-stand flexible enough to fit your needs so you’ll actually use it, says ESI.

Features for ease, convenience and cleanliness — including wireless charging

Lotus sit-stand workstations are designed for ease of use from the moment the box is opened. The desk arrives fully assembled, so you can simply unpack and get started. The system’s patent-pending Smooth Lift Technology keeps the workstation stable and makes changing positions effortless. Featuring 22 different height settings and 17 inches of vertical adjustment, the Lotus DX lets workers find a position that is perfect for them.

Tangled cords can be a significant distraction when trying to change workstation positions throughout the day. Lotus workstations provide innovative cord management with rear USB ports for the keyboard and mouse, allowing the entire workspace to move freely while also delivering a contemporary, sleek look. The new Lotus DX also reportedly offers a first in the category — a built-in charging station with wireless charging stand and an integrated two-port USB charging station.

The Lotus DX also features Microban antimicrobial technology for powerful, continuous product protection against bacteria, allowing users to feel better, work better and be better.

Two hours of sitting cancels out 20 minutes of exercise, so even for office workers who are healthy, sitting for long periods can be detrimental, according to the Mayo Clinic. The Lotus DX is designed to help workers follow through on their commitment to keep moving.

Features include:

  • Smooth Lift Technology
  • Vertical adjustment
  • Cord management with rear USB
  • Two-port USB charging station with Qi-enabled wireless charging pad
  • Microban antimicrobial technology
  • Dual monitor capable
  • Arrives fully assembled

Complete with a three-year warranty, the Lotus DX is available in white or black at Fellowes.com and select office retailers.
