This year the Flexiform production line has seen some fantastic designs rolling off it this year – our inventive and creative products are designed by our very own in house design team. Most recently we’ve seen some incredible looking bespoke furniture based on our industrial/ organic range –  “Ferro”.

Bespoke Office Furniture - Ferro from FlexiformAnother range we are particularly proud of is Jot-Up, our electronic, sit/stand desking system. This is Flexiform’s response to our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, which can ultimately have a negative effect on our health and productivity.

Lancet recently reported “Physical inactivity costs the global economy $67.5bn (£54.3bn) per year, comprising $58.8bn in healthcare and $13.7bn in lost productivity. Jot-Up aims to tackle these issues by providing office workers with the option of being able to sit or stand at their desks.

Just like Ferro, Jot-Up represents Flexiforms design led thinking, combining our well know solid engineering with a little bit of creative flair! producing office products that don’t just look great, but function perfectly.

Looking to the future, Flexiform now have an exciting new website, packed with recent client case studies, as well as a glimpse into how our furniture is designed and made at our Bradford plant.  The new website is a culmination of 2 years work, and reflects the continuous growth the company has made in recent years and illustrates our extensive design and manufacturing capabilities.

“Being shortlisted for manufacturer of the year is something that Flexiform are very proud of, this will be our first visit to the Mixology awards for many years.  We look forward to seeing you all there on the 8th December”.
