French manufacturer Fermob, known for its reception and workspace furniture, has extended its Garden Office range to tap into the growing trend for working outdoors.

Working surrounded by nature can only be beneficial for health, inspiration and revitalisation, believes the company, which first launched the Garden Office range in 2023 for businesses wanting to adopt a new attitude at work.

Its ergonomic outdoor desks, tables, chairs and stools allow specifiers to design open-air offices with welcoming communal areas that encourage discussions and sharing between employees.

The modular, flexible solutions can adapt to a wide range of applications (open-space offices, canteens, gardens, terraces, rooftops), encouraging contact with nature and interaction between colleagues.

With new additions to the range, which include the Bolder modular table and stool, Adadesk rocking side desk and Luxembourg Work high desk with storage, Fermob is now assisting all kinds of businesses, local authorities and managers of buildings open to the public to transform life at work and in public areas.
