Boom task light

You need it because:

To read handwritten and printed documents clearly, more focused light is required. Ergonomically efficient task lighting can cut out glare and shadows, and reduce eye fatigue and headaches.

The nitty gritty:

The Boom Task Light is engineered to direct light precisely where it needs to shine.

X-Factor:

Aside from its functionality, this 12cm by 41.2cm desk light – available in either black or aluminium – is the ideal addition to a minimalist office space.

Airvax air purifier

You need it because :

The likes of dust, mould, bacteria and tobacco smoke can affect your physical wellbeing. To limit your exposure as much as possible, enhance your office space with purified air.

The nitty gritty:

This Airvax Air Purifier is effective over a space of 25m2. It can remove particles as small as 0.1 micrometres from the air.

It’s quiet, the design fits any office space and you only need to replace the filter every three years.

Jumbo deskstand

You need it because:

A strained neck, back pain and joint compression can be avoided with better circulation and posture. This sit-stand work station is beneficial to circulation and improved muscular activity.

The nitty gritty:

The easy-to-assemble desk is adjustable to 10 height options and includes two shelves so you can make use of split screens. It also has special slots to keep your phone or tablet upright, in reach and visible.

X-Factor:

Delivery is free and includes a DVD to guide you. It’s recommended that you use the standing desk for up to an hour at a time in the beginning and ultimately, for four hours a day. Endorsed by chiropractors, it’s the perfect solution for agents who don’t spend all day at a desk. R2,695; deskstand.co.za

Spekboom

 

You need it because:

The benefits of plants in your workspace should not be underestimated. These include stress reduction, increased productivity and cleaner air.

 

The nitty gritty:

 The Spekboom’s ability to convert C02 into oxygen is 10 times higher than subtropical rainforests. So it makes sense to bring this workhorse into the work environment. Remember that it needs some natural light.

 

X-Factor:

 The succulent’s pretty leaves are also edible – so you can add them to your lunchtime salad if you really want to.
