Geoffrey Pascal : Grafeiphobia

8h in the morning, the alarm clock sounds. Ah, how hard it is to leave your cozy bed for the stiffness of your office chair! A daily test that French interior designer Geoffrey Pascal tries to lighten up with "Grafeiphobia", a collection of ergonomic desks combining the comfort of a bedding with the efficiency of a traditional workstation.

Based on positions taken from relaxation in the domestic space, Geoffrey Pascal offers three solutions to increase productivity while being as comfortable as at home. On the belly, the back or side, to each to find the posture in which it flourishes. Like what, slumping can be synonymous with efficiency!


The creator of this unusual collection thus declines three states that are rarely found in the premises of a company. The Basic Besk - contraction of "desk" and "bed" or "desk and bed" - allows to stand semi-reclining, the computer on the knees, a position usually more conducive to telework and to binge watching than at the classical tertiary level. More inspired by the online shopping in the couch than by 35 hours in the office, the Triclinium Gum lets officer stretched out to the side. Finally, Flying Man offers its users the opportunity to consult their PC lying on their stomachs. Original processes that emerge following a statement made by the creator himself.

"When I'm behind a desk, sitting in a chair, I always feel I have to work. I feel stress and pressure, which does not make me more productive, on the contrary. [...] » Geoffrey Pascal, designer

Without mixing work and sleep environments, this "fear of the office" inspires the designer these stations that combine the positive elements of a day's work in bed and the efficiency of a traditional office.

What motivate employees to work overtime!
