Ergonomics in chairs and tables for the hospitality industry

Ergonomics in chairs and tables for the hospitality industry

When we talk about ergonomics in chairs and stools, people often say that it is crucial to sit in a correct position. But the truth of the matter is that not everything has to do with a person’s posture. Where a chair or a table is placed will also have an effect when it comes to their being seated properly and comfortably.
This is something that very few hotels, bars and restaurants take into account when choosing furniture for their establishments and, however, it is a very important factor as far as the general public is concerned.
If a guest is to enjoy their visit, they should be able to sit somewhere that will allow them to sit up straight with their back supported by the back of the chair. To facilitate such a position, it is recommended that the chair should not be bigger than the table and that it should be close enough to avoid the customer having to bend forward all the time.
In the case of barstools and stools, it is suggested that the diner be able to support his or her feet and at the same time, that the seat and table should not be all that far apart.
The furniture is an extremely important element in any establishment; it goes far beyond mere utility or decoration. We in FEYMA understand that this is the case, and that is precisely why we can offer you an extensive catalogue with frequent innovations both in general contract furniture and in outdoor furniture.
