Heavily involved in the new start up family business and helping to deliver the message on sit-stand working, is a young entrepreneur and product designer from Norwich.
Amber Sayers, who shares an open plan studio space in the Norwich Lanes, helped form the company Flomotion Studio last year with her parents, Bev Grice and Floyd Sayers. She has joint responsibility for design, and research and development within the business. A year spent designing a sit-stand desk for her final year A-level project, researching the office environment and the serious health issues surrounding a sedentary way of working, combined with her parents sourcing the right frame supplier, meant everything fell into place – it was the perfect timing for them to start the business.
Amber Sayers from Flomotion ‘I see this a great opportunity to design new products and work with exciting new materials on something that has such a positive benefit for users. I’m very interested in design and creative business enterprise and as a fledgling entrepreneur want to run my own business one day. I have been offered a place to study industrial design and technology at Brunel in September, but could put this back a year, depending on how the business develops.’
The recommendation is that if you work at a desk you should alternate from a sitting to standing position regularly and spend a minimum of two hours on your feet at work, building up to an ideal four hours – movement throughout the day is key! Today, the average office worker sits for about 10 hours. Medical researchers have long warned that prolonged sitting is dangerous, associated with a significantly higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and depression, as well as muscle and joint problems.
