Spine from ACTIU, the backbone of the office of the future

What do we look for when we are planning a new office? Comfort, accessibility, order, cleanliness, a space where we feel comfortable and are able to work long hours during the day without bad consequences such as backaches, injuries, bad positions, etc. It’s not that easy to design a product that brings together all these features, but the Spanish ACTIU achieved it: SPINE, the new workstation that makes work more efficient… let’s know how!

Spine allows an intelligent configuration of workspaces to achieve more efficiency

At ACTIU, a company specialized in the design and manufacturing of furniture for workspaces, they have been reflecting on this idea for many years. With a clear objective: people. They know that habits in offices have changed a lot. Along with the new demand for open and more collaborative working spaces, there is also a need of small individual areas that preserves privacy while assuring a constant contact with the rest of office workers.

With this in mind, ACTIU’s  R&D department have developed SPINE, the new modular office model, adaptable to each space, to different needs and with connectivity  completely hidden yet easily accessible. This solution allows endless possibilities of configuration, optimizing spaces and integrating cutting-edge technology into office furniture.

Based on four elements (desk, low and high filing cabinets and dividers), SPINE is structured as a ‘backbone’ in which different compositions are anchored. In this way, employing far less squared metres to place the work surface and storage, you get the same or better performance in space distribution.

A whole central structure, 100% adjustable to the tastes and the needs of the users, enables you to create all types of spaces: combinations of individual work areas, but also co-working spaces, where different dividers or high filing cabinets assure privacy and comfort.

SPINE presents a wide variety of filing cabinets: with sliding doors, drawers, open libraries, mixed solutions...and they can all be accessed by one or two sides. Optional pieces, such as the overhead storage, can be added at any time extending possibilities of configuration and allowing a totally customized design of your office environment.


In short, it is a sober and elegant solution that synthetizes, reducing and integrating elements and adjusting the workspace to the needs of the users.
