The Unio Story

Undesking the workplace with style and function

We set out to find a workspace answer for a successful local expanding business and ended up creating a solution that will revolutionise the workspace and can help all businesses in the UK and internationally.

  • Smart ergonomic electric adjusting desk
  • Improved health & wellbeing
  • Significant cost and space-saving benefits
  • Working towards 100% recyclability

Having set out on our journey…

we took advantage of services available through the North East Business and Innovation Centre, (NE BIC). The following funded projects/programs were utilised;

  • The Innovation Program
  • Sunderland University / SAM Project
  • Invest Sunderland
  • Proto Design / Northern Design Network
  • Newcastle Uni / Northumbria Uni

Nominated for NE Innovation of the Year

We worked with product designers to develop the concept, which led to a prototyping, and a supply chain of vac-formed plastics, steel fabrication, worktops, cabling, actuators, and more.

Global Pandemic

The CoronaVirus Pandemic of 2020 had a huge impact on the world of business and beyond, changing our way of working into a more hybrid work/lifestyle. UNIO will hugely benefit the post-pandemic business world.
