“The ability to intuitively move to where you feel most comfortable, productive or creative at any given time during your working day.” – DAS
DAS have been working within the trading room and wider office interiors market for decades. There’s no doubt that the workplace is almost unrecognisable from the early days of space-hungry corner workstations and oversized desktop monitors.
However, it’s not just the equipment that has evolved; attitudes towards productivity, creativity and the overall well-being of employees has come on leaps and bounds during this time. DAS have worked continuously to adapt and overcome the technological and social issues that come with this new, agile way of working.
Learn more about the DAS AGILE WORKING portfolio and ethos below. Over the years we have developed our own Desking and Casual Meeting products and we are also very excited to be the exclusive UK partner of BORG Furniture, an Estonia based specialist agile manufacturer.
This partnership allows us to offer beautifully designed, high quality products that help promote collaboration, flexibility and semi-private working.

It’s easy to think of agile furniture as booths, sofas and coffee tables, but one of the most important aspects of flexible working is the ability to move. Electrically height-adjustable desks allow the user to sit and stand throughout the day, increasing blood flow, moving oxygen around the body and ultimately helping with concentration and overall well-being.
Since the advent of open- plan offices, the ability to work in a concentrated or private way has become more difficult. DAS are able to offer a selection of furniture ranges from 2 and 4-person booths, both static and mobile, to fully enclosed single, double and quadruple pods.
There is no doubt one of the most successful product innovations of recent times is the Pod. Single, double and quadruple options allow for both concentrated working and semi-private meetings. Acoustic technology keeps sound both in and out, whilst fabric and finish choices give the perfect opportunity to add both colour and texture to an office space.
In the fast-paced environment of the modern office, impromptu team meetings have become a daily or even hourly occurrence. Casual meeting tables such as the DAS SPIDER or PITCH range sit comfortably within the open plan, agile space, always ready to host a collaborative get together.
Can an office be truly agile without the ability to be re-configured if needed? Many would say not, which is why DAS offer several furniture families on castors instead of static feet/legs. Products like the HAUS armchair and FRENCHY chair and stool provide that important movement, essential for flexible use of a space. Not only does this functionality mean an entire space can change quickly and efficiently, it also gives individuals the ability to temporarily roll chairs together and collaborate.
No matter how modern or forward thinking an office is, the reception still often starts the journey for any potential visitors, setting the tone for the whole meeting.
Gone are the days when storage was mainly lateral filing and pedestals. In today’s agile workspace storage can be just as part of the interior design as any furniture range. Bike and Locker storage are also of the utmost importance to promote a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing.
Sound is often an overlooked aspect of the workplace. With more and more open plan spaces there is always the possibility that concentration can be broken and productivity affected.
