Double Negative Case Study
"The M/Flex arms seemed to be well built and offered the best combination of position, flexibility and monitor stability."
- Steve Lynn, Head of Infrastructure at Double Negative
Adapting to the user
When Double Negative, Europe’s largest provider of visual effects for film, decided to merge their London locations into one purpose driven headquarters, they had the opportunity to start fresh with the 1,000 workstations that they needed to outfit.
Double Negative’s artists spend long periods of time at their workstations, so they required an extremely accommodating set-up. “If the artists are more comfortable, then they may take fewer breaks away from their workstations,” said Steve Lynn, head of infrastructure at Double Negative. As such, they sought monitor arms that would lend themselves to flexible monitor placement and maximise desk space. In addition, they were keen to use solutions that were environmentally friendly for their project. Above all, Double Negative wanted products that would cater to all users. In other words, they wanted to implement tools that would adapt to the user, not the other way around.
