New Breakout Bag Pedestal Meets the Needs of On-the-Go Workers
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Workiture, a Michigan-based company, today announced a line of new furniture accessories designed specifically for today's constantly on, very mobile knowledge workers. The new BagPed line provides a perch and storage for workbags, making it fast and easy to grab laptops and files and get to work no matter where you are. BagPeds can be used in home, office or public spaces such as libraries, lobbies or coffee shops.
"As laptops and smartphones have permeated our work lives, more people are working untethered: at home, on the go, even varying their locations within the workspace. Every day, I see people running from one meeting room to another, then catching up on email at a convenient touchdown space," said BagPed inventor Scott Sikkema. "I wanted a stylish yet functional piece of furniture to stow your bag while making it easy to access its contents."
The BagPed line is an innovative design response to the changing work styles of white-collar workers. Sikkema continued, "People's first response when they see a BagPed is, 'I love it! It's perfect – and I didn't even know I needed it!'"
The modern, minimalist designs provide a range of materials and colors, making them suitable for a variety of interiors. All BagPeds can hold up to a 17" laptop case.
