Sedgwick Business Interiors [is] leading the charge
"It wasn’t all that long ago that most offices had a similar look — rows and rows of desks, perhaps, or 'workstations' divided by cubicles. That was then and this is now. The layout of many workplaces nowadays is a lot different than your parents or grandparents might remember, and places such as Sedgwick Business Interiors are leading the charge. The Rochester-based company has fresh ideas for workplace ambience, promoting a holistic approach with phrases such as 'cozy coves,' 'personal hives' and 'public plazas.' 'We’re going to provide the highest quality products, designs and services in order to provide integrated, world class office environments,' said firm founder and President Douglas Sedgwick. The philosophy is sound: Create a more creative, good-vibe, “healthier” atmosphere, and employees will be happier and more productive. It’s a philosophy many offices have adopted to attract and retain millennials. Sedgwick Business Interiors is a certified dealer of products made by Herman Miller, the so-called rock star of this industry. Miller created the ergonomically correct Aeron chair, which is in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
