4 Ways to Promote Spinal Health at School

In recent years, there has been an increase in concern and discussion around children’s health and development. A 2017 UK study on physical activity in primary school age children determined that only 21% of boys and 16% of girls are meeting the current daily recommendation of 60 minutes. An Australian study conducted this year also found that 66% of children aged between 2-5 years old are not getting the 3 hours of daily exercise recommended for their growth and development.

Reasons behind this lack of activity are considered to include too much screen time, not enough support or encouragement from parents, and injury or other physical barriers. Back pain in particular is a common complaint amongst school age children. So how can we ensure that our kids get enough exercise while minimising the risk of injury?

In this month’s blog post, we discuss 4 ways to ensure that your child remains injury-free by promoting spinal health at school:

 

Backpacks

School backpacks have long been identified as a leading cause of back pain in children, with some kids routinely carrying bags weighing up to 30% or more of their own body weight. Heavy backpacks can result in fatigue, muscle strain, and upper back and neck pain, as well as placing stress on the spine. Backpacks can also cause ongoing health issues including chronic pain, inflammation and nerve damage.

To prevent your child developing back pain as a result of their school bag, ensure that the load does not exceed 10% of their body weight. You can also encourage your kids to leave items at school, clean out their backpack regularly, and check if they are experiencing any pain or aching muscles. Choosing the right backpack is essential – the bag should fit your child’s torso correctly, include supportive features like adjustable shoulder and chest straps, and have multiple compartments for the even distribution of weight. Another way to minimise the chance of injury is the development of healthy backpack habits, such as wearing both shoulder straps and loading the bag on a desk rather than on the floor.

 

Sport

Another common cause of injuries amongst school age children is sport. Many Aussie kids play sport both at school as part of P.E, as well as after school and on the weekends. Although this is beneficial for their overall health, parents should be careful of allowing their children to train excessively. Overtraining as well as using improper techniques can result in fatigue and the increased likelihood of a serious overuse injury, as well as chronic back pain.

Experts suggest that cross-training can help prevent injury, where children play a range of sports and avoid concentrating on one particular sport and its accompanying repetitive motions. Other tips include giving your child a 3-4 month break every year from their chosen sport, ensuring that they have 2 days off a week to allow for recovery and muscle repair, and following the rule of age vs hours. This means that kids should only participate in organised sport for as many hours a week as their current age eg: an 8 year old should not be playing more than 8 hours of sport a week.

 

Stress

One of the less obvious causes of back pain is stress, where the combination of tension in the neck and upper back, along with long periods of sitting in a sedentary position, can lead to ongoing spinal issues. A 2018 study reveals that young people in Australia experience high levels of stress in school, with 47% of students reported as feeling very tense when they study compared to the international average of 56%. A further 50% of students from Years 7-12 reported feeling moderately to extremely stressed over exams, with the majority of pressure to perform well academically coming from themselves.

Parents can help their children develop healthy methods of coping with stress, including a regular exercise schedule and taking up yoga practice. Yoga has been proven to help develop mindfulness, resilience, self-esteem and increase psychological well-being overall, including reducing stress. Yoga is also beneficial for physical health, able to enhance your child’s flexibility, lower their blood pressure, increase their muscle strength and improve their posture.

 

Posture

Finally, one of the best ways to ensure that your child can remain healthy and reduce the risk of back pain is to ensure they are maintaining good posture. As both children and adults are sitting for longer periods of time, there is growing importance on having proper sitting and standing posture. Poor posture can be improved with supportive school shoes that reduce pressure on the spine, regular stretching and movement during the school day, and the use of ergonomic furniture for study.

At moll Shop Australia, we understand how crucial ergonomic furniture is to the healthy development of your child. This is why all our kids study chairs and study desks are height-adjustable, with the flexibility to grow with your child, and is also the reason behind our constant devotion to innovation and the development of quality designs.

Keeping our kids moving is of vital importance in our increasingly sedentary school and work environments. Following the above tips is an easy way to ensure that your child can stay active and healthy while minimising the risk of injury and back pain.

How to Avoid a Back Injury at Work

Nobody wants to get injured at work. But for office workers and other professionals, a back injury is one of the most common injuries that you can experience during your working life. In 2017, Safe Work Australia reported that ‘body stressing’, which includes muscle strains and spinal injuries, was the most common cause of workplace compensation claims from 2015-2016.

At moll Shop Australia, we focus on developing and refining our range of ergonomic office furniture with the aim of reducing the likelihood of back strain or injury at work. A reliable and quality study desk and office chair is tailored to your measurements and allows your spine the natural movement and flexibility that it needs. But how else can we avoid suffering a workplace related spinal or muscular injury?

In this month’s blog post, we discuss how to avoid a back injury at work:

 

Adjust Your Posture

One simple way to avoid a back injury at work is to ensure that you have good posture, no matter whether you work standing or sitting. People who work on computers tend to slouch forward, rounding their shoulders and letting their head hang forward, unknowingly holding this position for hours. People who stand at work can have similar issues by frequently twisting, bending and reaching for things at their workstation. These types of poor posture habits leave the back unsupported, and can result in chronic back pain and other injuries.

The most important thing to remember is to avoid getting trapped in a static position. Standing workers need to keep moving to keep the body limber, and seated workers similarly need to stretch and take regular breaks to prevent stiffness and muscle strain. Having an ergonomically correct workstation is also important! Check out our blog post The Moll Guide to Ergonomics in the Workplace to learn more.

 

Stretch Regularly

Regular stretching is another way to avoid back injury in the workplace. Stretching your wrists, shoulders, back, torso, neck, hip flexors and legs can help to reduce workplace injury, and some can even be done while sitting at your desk. This list of stretches will help keep you moving during your work day. Make sure that the stretches are slow and sustained, holding each for between 10 and 20 seconds each.

A regular practice of yoga, tai chi, pilates and other low-impact exercise can also help prevent back injuries. Yoga in particular has been proven to increase flexibility, build muscle strength, and improve your posture, balance and your ability to focus, along with a range of other benefits.

 

Strengthen Your Back with Exercise

Prevention is always better than a cure, as the old saying goes, and one of the easiest ways to avoid a back injury at work is to exercise regularly and strengthen the muscles in your back. Regular low-impact aerobic exercise such as swimming or walking can strengthen your back without exposing it to any stress or sudden jolts. Exercise also assists in maintaining a healthy weight, as excess weight can put strain on your lower back and be another cause of chronic pain.

Exercise helps to condition your back muscles, so that they can better support the spine. This leads to relief in any back and neck pain you might be experiencing, and better alignment of the spine overall. Check out this list of back strengthening exercises to get started.

 

Reduce Your Stress

The final way that you can avoid a back injury at work is to reduce your stress levels. Stress causes tension in the spine, and prolonged tension can lead to pain and other injuries. Of course it is impossible to remove stress completely from the workplace, and studies have shown that stress actually has benefits, able to increase your motivation, focus and resilience levels. However, too much stress can impact your physical and mental health, and needs to be effectively managed.

Some useful stress management techniques include yoga, meditation, breathing exercises and taking frequent short breaks from stressful tasks. Getting out of the office for a walk during lunch, keeping organised and on top of your workload, and listening to music are also helpful and productive ways to deal with stress. If you are unsure of where to start with meditation, there are several websites and apps that can help, such as Headspace.

Therefore, avoiding becoming a statistic with a workplace related back injury is easy, if you make sure that you are maintaining the correct posture at your workstation, stretching and exercising regularly, and applying the stress management techniques that work for you. With a few simple changes, you can ensure that your back stays healthy throughout your working life!

The Moll Guide to Ergonomics in the Workplace

At moll Shop Australia, we are dedicated to the design and development of innovative, reliable and ergonomic office furniture. But why is having an ergonomic workplace so important? A recent article stated that the average office worker spends over 65% of their time at work in a sedentary seated position, which can lead to a range of health problems including spinal issues. Back injuries can also occur through repetitive motions, poor posture, fatigue and workplace accidents. Ergonomics can help prevent these injuries, as well as benefit our health, productivity and happiness in the office.

In this month’s blog post, we present a guide to ergonomics in the workplace:

 

Office Chairs

One of the most important pieces of office furniture is your desk chair. In the office, we sit in these chairs for up to eight hours a day, so it makes sense that they should be able to be adjusted to suit our bodies. Things to consider when choosing an office chair include height, seat depth, lumbar support, arm rests, comfort and mobility. Swivel chairs are the best type of desk chairs as they do not restrict our movement and force us to bend in unnatural ways.

Your desk chair should be able to be adjusted in terms of seat height and depth to suit your proportions. Your feet should be able to rest fully on the floor, and the back of the chair should have a natural curve to accommodate the spine. Ensuring that your chair has been adjusted to suit your needs will prevent back pain and other injuries during your time at work.

Office Desks

The other most important piece of office furniture in your workplace is your desk. A desk that is too high, low or cramped can all cause muscle strain and spinal issues. The general rule is that you should have enough space beneath the desk to cross your legs, while the angle between your elbow and forearm should be 90 – 120 degrees. Your desk should also be organised into zones, with office supplies and documents that you use often, sometimes and rarely at corresponding distances. This ensures that you are not constantly reaching for what you need and possibly causing a repetitive injury. Your monitor should likewise be positioned at a comfortable distance so that you are not straining your neck to see it.

An increasingly popular trend in the workplace are standing desks or height-adjustable desks, where you can stand or sit at the desk and continuously change your posture. The moll range of height-adjustable office desks are electronically controlled, while others are unfolded or wound up. Some people have switched to standing-only desks, but experts have stressed that standing desks do not equal exercise, and are not necessarily healthier. Switching between standing and sitting is considered the best method, giving you time to stretch and maintain flexibility without getting too fatigued.

You can find our range of award-winning ergonomic office desks here.

 

Mobile Storage

An often overlooked piece of office furniture is storage. Storage containers, filing cabinets and shelves are all regularly used in the workplace, and their role in promoting an ergonomic workplace is often crucial. Having to continuously turn, bend or move to reach storage can cause strain and possible injury, particularly if it becomes a repetitive movement that you perform every day. The solution to this is mobile storage containers, which can be easily rolled to the most convenient position for your daily use. Roll containers do not have to be picked up and are also compact enough to store under your desk or in corners away from high-traffic areas in the workplace.

Desk Lighting

Another essential piece of the office ergonomics puzzle is desk lighting. As we discussed in the previous month’s blog post, How To Create An Inspirational Homework Environment, natural light is the ideal light for work, as it reinforces a healthy sleep-wake cycle and benefits performance, productivity and positivity in the office. However, if your workplace does not have access to natural light, the next best option is investing in desk lighting which mimics natural light. Having a well-lit workspace also reduces the chances of eye strain and fatigue.

Office Health

Finally, there are several healthy habits which you can adopt as part of achieving an ergonomic workplace. Eating small healthy meals throughout the day will prevent you from making unhealthy food choices, while limiting your caffeine intake and drinking more water will prevent the dreaded 3pm slump. Making time to get outside during your lunch break will ensure you get a dose of Vitamin D, while being hygienic will lessen the chances of becoming ill.

Apart from changing your sitting position, you should also take regular breaks to refresh your body and mind. You can even do stretching exercises while you work, to prevent sore stiff muscles and increase blood flow. With the correct office furniture and a few healthy changes to your day, it’s easy to make your work a more ergonomic, healthier and productive place.

How to Create an Inspirational Homework Environment

It’s no secret that kids generally don’t enjoy doing their homework. After a long day at school, the last thing that children want to do is sit down and work for another few hours. So how can parents create a study environment that will help keep their kids focused, productive and creative?

Just like adults, it can be difficult for kids to keep themselves on track in completing their work, as we discussed in last month’s blog post on increasing your productivity at work. However, various studies have shown how our surroundings affect our mood, both at work and at home. Lighting, interior design, choice of furniture and various other factors can contribute to making homework time a more positive and creative experience for our children.

Therefore, in April’s blog post we show you how to create an inspirational homework environment that your kids will love:

 

Step 1. Designate a Study Space

The first step to creating an inspirational homework environment to keep your kids focused and productive is to choose part of your home as a designated study space. It can be tempting to have your kids complete their homework at the kitchen table or another communal space where you can keep an eye on them, but often these high-traffic areas of the home are too distracting to allow children to focus on their tasks.

Creating a designated area or room for homework will limit potential distractions for kids, allowing them to focus and on and complete their assignments more effectively. This doesn’t mean that the space has to be bare and boring; as we discuss later in this blog post, personalising and decorating your kids’ homework area can actually increase their concentration and enhance their mood.

Also, because technology is increasingly used by schools for homework and school assignments, your chosen study space should be able to accommodate a computer or laptop. To make sure that your children are focusing on their work, there are several parental control programs and apps that can be installed on computers and mobile devices such as Habyts, an app that limits Internet use to educational websites and programs during homework time.

 

Step 2. Choose Well-Designed and Ergonomic Furniture

The second step in creating an inspirational homework environment for your children is to invest in well-designed, ergonomic office furniture. It is essential to develop spinal health and good posture early, with back pain becoming a common problem among primary school age children.

The furniture that you choose for your kids’ study space should be flexible, comfortable, functional, and able to be adjusted as your child grows. Our philosophy at moll Australia is to create furniture that instills good posture and study habits into children from a young age that will serve them for the rest of their working lives. The team at moll has been committed to the ergonomic design of the perfect learning environment for over 90 years. All of our kids chairs and study desks are fully adjustable in seat height and depth as well as in backrest height, making the moll product range optimally adaptable to the growth and changing needs of students from kindergarten to university.

 

Step 3. Let There Be Light

Lighting is one of the most important features of any home office or study space. Natural light has been proven to enhance performance, productivity and positivity in the workplace, primarily because it works with our bodies’ natural circadian rhythm to support a healthy sleep-wake cycle. If possible, having the desk in your children’s study space either facing or near a window will allow natural light in and reduce the need for artificial lighting.

If the study space cannot accommodate natural light, it is best to have lighting that imitates sunlight, tending towards the red rather than the blue spectrum. Investing in a quality desk lamp will ensure that your child won’t have to strain their eyes when doing their homework. An innovative desk lamp design can also contribute to an inspiring homework environment; for example, the moll Flexlight is a glare-reducing LED light which contains a built-in USB interface for charging laptops or mobile devices, as well as the ability to change to different colours at the click of a button.

 

Step 4. Keep Clutter to a Minimum

Anyone with children knows how quickly a homework desk can become piled up with assignments, arts and crafts projects, office supplies and other belongings. Apart from offering a variety of distractions, a cluttered study space does not lend itself to concentration or room to work on an assignment. Keeping the study space tidy and organised is therefore another essential part of creating an inspirational homework environment for your kids.

Flexible and convenient storage options are a must for any study space. This storage should be able to be easily adjusted and moved, large enough to fit A3 paper and other materials, and located near enough to the homework desk to be convenient. Our range of moll mobile storage comes with rollers so that they can be easily moved, but are also stable enough to be used as a seat. These containers also have automatic self-closing drawers to reduce the risk of injury, and feature interchangeable decorative panels to fit in with the design of any study space.

 

Step 5. Decorate for Creativity and Focus

The final step towards creating an inspirational homework environment is to personalise the study space to make it an inviting and inspiring place to work for your kids. All of our products at moll Australia are available in a range of different colours so that your children can choose a design that they like, and feature interchangeable elements to keep up with their needs, likes and dislikes.

Involving your child in the design of their study space will ensure the finished product is a space that they enjoy being in and take pride in helping to create. Including a few of their favourite colours or decorations featuring their favourite characters will help your kids to feel positive about the study space and homework time in general. Painting the walls of the study space particular colours can also help improve concentration and mood in your kids; for example, blue is calming, while green inspires creativity, and red raises the energy of the space.

By following these simple steps, your kids will have an organised, personalised and inspiring homework environment that will help them keep on top of their assignments.

5 Tips for Increasing Your Productivity at Work

We all know the feeling of stepping away from our desk at the end of a long day and feeling dissatisfied with what we managed to achieve. There are so many distractions in modern offices, from noisy co-workers to cluttered workspaces to social media.

At moll Shop Australia, we are focused on designing and manufacturing quality ergonomic furniture for offices around the world. Ergonomic furniture has been proven to reduce injury and enhance productivity in the workplace. But how else can we work more efficiently and get our tasks completed on time?

In this month’s blog post, we give you 5 tips for increasing your productivity at work:

 

Get Organised

Our first tip to increase your productivity at work is getting organised. This means organising both your work environment and your workload, in order to declutter, prioritise and clarify your work day.

Messy work environments lead to stress and distractions. Taking a few minutes to sort files, clean up coffee spills, put rubbish in the bin and generally organise your workspace will do wonders for your mood and ability to focus. Creating a to-do list will help you in ordering your tasks for the day or week. Using either a paper or online planner will allow you to keep track of upcoming appointments, deadlines and meetings. A printed planner will also give your eyes regular breaks from the glare of your computer screen. Having this information at your fingertips will let you prioritise your workload and finish tasks on time.

One of the advantages of prioritising your work is being able to avoid having to multitask. Although multitasking is often looked upon as a desirable skill, a 2014 study from the University of Sussex argues that media multitasking is having an impact on our attention spans, our social-emotional well being, and even changing the structure of our brains. Focusing on getting one task completed before moving on to the next will definitely assist in increasing your productivity in the office.

 

Limit Distractions

Our second tip to increase your productivity at work is to limit distractions. Distractions in the office can take many forms, from co-workers to emails to the ever-present siren call of social media, and any one of them can be responsible for our well-planned work day deteriorating into hours of procrastination.

Although having co-workers can be one of the most positive parts of working in an office, there will be times when you need to be left alone to make a deadline or finish a project. In order to avoid any tension, it is best to clearly communicate to your co-workers when they are distracting you, or when a task requires your complete attention, both directly and through online messaging.

Emails are vital to the running of any workplace, but receiving a high volume of emails is sure to limit your ability to be productive. Turning off email and phone notifications will prevent your being distracted, and allow you to set aside a part of your work day to deal with your inbox, such as 30 minutes when you arrive in the morning and 30 minutes before you leave.

Social media is best used as a reward, such as in your lunch break, or after you have completed a large or complicated task. Saving your Instagram, Twitter or Facebook feeds for special occasions will help keep you motivated and prevent you from feeling guilty for procrastinating when you should be working.

 

Make Healthy Choices

Another way to increase your productivity in the office is to make healthy choices throughout your work day. Taking regular breaks, for example, allows your brain a chance to reset and come up with new ideas, while keeping your caffeine intake under control will allow you to concentrate for longer periods without becoming restless.

Exercise is particularly useful for productivity, because physical activity has been proven to enhance brain function, as well as lowering your stress levels and enhancing your mood. Exercising during your lunch break has also been proven to leave you more equipped to deal with co-workers, and more satisfied at the end of the day.

Ergonomic office furniture is another way to maintain good health and increase your productivity. Ergonomic furniture corrects your posture and is able to be adjusted to suit your body and movements, preventing workplace injuries and protecting your spine. Ergonomic work furniture includes office desks, office chairs, study desks, computer mice, adjustable keyboards and mobile drawers. Our range of ergonomic office desks, desk chairs and other products can be found here.

 

Set your own Deadlines

Increasing your productivity can also be achieved by setting our own deadlines. This has the effect of holding yourself accountable for completing particular tasks, as well as being able to break down large projects into achievable goals over a certain period of time. Creating your own deadlines is a way to ensure that you are effectively managing your time and seeing tasks through to completion.

There are many time management methods in existence to help you break down tasks and meet deadlines, and one of the most effective of these is timers, such as the Pomodoro Technique. The Pomodoro Technique was invented by entrepreneur Francesco Cirillo, and involves setting a timer and working in controlled 30 minute bursts interspersed with short breaks. The completion of each ‘pomodoro’ is noted by keeping a tally, motivating you to keep going and providing a visual reminder of your achievements during the day. There is a Pomodoro app for both Androids and iPhones, and several other similar applications and websites involving timers are also available to keep you on track in completing your work.

 

Use Ambient Sound

Our last tip for increasing productivity at work is trying ambient sound. If you work in a busy office and find it difficult to concentrate, ambient sound can be used to increase your focus and stimulate your creativity. In 2014, a peer-reviewed study from the University of Chicago found that a ‘moderate level’ of ambient sound is ‘conducive to creative cognition’, sharpening our problem-solving and creative skills.

Popular sounds include waves, wind, rain, fireplaces, cafes and birdsong, and there are a variety of websites and apps available that provide free ambient sound for both desktop and mobile. Coffitivity, for example, reproduces the ambient noise of a cafe, while Rainy Mood is famous for its thunderstorm track. A Soft Murmur allows you to mix various sounds into your own ambient soundtrack, including Tibetan singing bowls, white noise, thunder and crickets. With a further four million results for videos featuring ‘ambient sound’ on YouTube, you are sure to find the perfect sound that will help you complete any task.

Overall, diverse studies have proven that getting organised, limiting distractions, making healthy choices including the use of ergonomic furniture, setting your own deadlines, and using ambient sound are all effective ways of increasing your productivity at work.

Introducing moll Shop Australia

moll is a leading German furniture manufacturer, founded in 1925 as a family business in Baden – Württemberg in Germany.

Our company manufactures office and organisational furniture, including desks and swivel chairs, and is an international leader in the design of children’s desks and chairs. This ergonomic furniture promotes healthy development in children, growing with the child rather than the child outgrowing the furniture. Our products are successfully marketed worldwide in over 30 countries, and we currently deliver to more than 60 countries, including Australia from 2018 onwards.

 

moll is the inventor

The German state of Baden-Württemberg has always been known as the home of inventors – the products developed here are an expression of their time. For more than 40 years, moll has manufactured office furniture, rotating shelves and children’s study desks and chairs with perfect craftsmanship. We are the inventor of the height-adjustable desk that grows with the child.

Our working world is no longer imaginable without desks. Although ergonomics and the organization of work became a focus early on, people had barely thought about a children’s study desk. In 1974, moll unveiled the Perfect, the first desk for children and teens that was height-adjustable and grew with them. After countless product innovations, and 40 years, today’s top-of-the-line model, the Champion, has arrived.

 

moll is made in Germany

Made in Germany – at moll, this is not an advertising slogan, but a reality.

All moll products are developed and produced in house, where everything started almost 100 years ago: in the Swabian Alps of southern Germany. Started by Andreas Moll as a family business in 1925, moll is now run by Martin Moll of the third generation. moll employs the best technicians, engineers and developers to produce high-quality study chairs, study desks and children’s furniture. Our focus on quality, sustainability and safety guarantees that we will remain a reliable partner for a wide range of functional furniture into the future.

Thanks to their longstanding reputation, our products carry the “Made in Germany” seal. It not only provides a great trust advantage among our international customers, but also stands for technical and design innovation.

Today we are proud that – together with our employees, suppliers and customers – we have become a leading provider of children’s desk furniture while still remaining a family-run business.

 

moll is good design

In everything we do, we ensure that the moll brand stands for functionality and ergonomics with special high-quality design. Our goal is to offer design-minded customers innovative, high-quality, technically sophisticated functional furniture. It is appealing to the smallest detail, intuitive to use, and reliable.

Our development is marked by milestones such as the first rotatable file cabinet (1960), and the world’s first height-adjustable desk for children and teens (1974). The latest examples of trailblazing innovation are the moll S9 three-dimensional movable swivel chair and the electric-motor-driven  and height-adjustable moll T7 desk for the private office.

We believe in the positive effects of good design. Our designers develop furniture to the highest standards in cooperation with renowned designers. For us, design is an important success factor for our products. That doesn’t just mean we make pretty products. We consider design to be the sum total of the demands the user makes on us, the details made possible by technical innovation, the production conditions and of course the ecological requirements as well.

Our products’ durability is important to our design. This affects not only the product quality, but also the design quality. Nothing can be more sustainable than a product that accompanies a person throughout life and is even passed down to others. That it is also user-friendly, long-lasting, innovative and environmentally sound is a given.

 

moll is safety

Technical and health safety are indispensable in children’s furniture. That is why we subject ourselves to high standards and have our products continuously inspected and tested for technical and health safety by leading independent institutes.

The independent TÜV Rheinland institute checks our products for technical safety. This ensures safe functionality in our products.

The GS symbol was introduced in Germany in 1977 and is Europe’s leading safety seal. It ensures consumer protection and determines that consumer products meet all legal safety requirements demanded by the German product safety act. Independent experts inspect many product features, including ergonomics and chemical analysis of polymer materials affecting the products tested.

The law calls for regular testing of certified products. This guarantees continuous inspection of the products and production.  The GS symbol requires very high standards that exceed the basic requirements for the CE symbol.

The GS symbol guarantees that our products are technically and mechanically impeccable.

 

moll is reliability

For us, quality is in the whole and in the details. All our products are made with select materials according to the highest quality standards. Appealing design and premium German production make our products especially long-lasting. But not only our production quality meets high standards. Just as important is customer satisfaction – the quality of our service.

At moll, we demand the highest quality of workmanship and service. All customers who have purchased moll products from a commercial furniture dealer immediately receive an extended 5-year warranty on the performance, quality and functionality of the materials and components used.

 

moll is unique

Tastes vary and can change over time. That is why moll furniture is flexible and can adjust anytime to current trends or evolving preferences. This makes moll furniture timelessly practical. Moreover, moll kids products, such as kids study desks and kids desk chairs, can be extended anytime. They can be upgraded with more work space or storage.

The desk isn’t just an element for working and learning. Its size makes it a central visual component in the work area or children’s room. The modern design of moll furniture is enhanced by a variety of different color variants. Whether in the moll kids or the moll unique line, there is no limit to the design flexibility, so anyone can find exactly the color combination he or she likes or that best fits the furnishings. In addition to the desks’ décor variants, a total of 18 different fabrics are available for the four chair models.

 

moll is the future

moll’s intention is to prevent as much as possible any negative environmental effects that are caused by its business activities. The applicable environmental laws and regulations are followed in their entirety. moll products are an interplay of ecology, economics and ergonomics. We don’t want to reduce the utility of our products due to our conduct in production. We are convinced that a product can only really be good if it comes about in a good way.

Quality and design are the guarantors of our sustainability. Only the best materials and the greatest care in production ensure the lasting quality of our furniture. The concept is designed for lifelong use and true sustainability. Made in Germany, the furniture uses premium materials that ensure durability. Thanks to its timeless design, variable dimensions and interchangeable elements, the furniture outlasts the user’s changing preferences, while its functional components always keep it ergonomic. We also manufacture exclusively in Germany. This ensures quality, jobs and adherence to social and ecological standards.
