These ideals have remained the keystones of our company’s success and at the heart of everything we do. Through our office furniture selection, we will help you shape the right corporate image, have the most productive workplace and create the largest possible return on your investment.

We are committed to delivering above and beyond our customers’ expectations. As such, we have made a determined commitment to maintain and improve our management systems and environmental management controls and are proudly an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified company.

We offer a turnkey commercial furniture service. Our full product range can be viewed within these pages and in our showroom. Also, all our workstations and desktops are manufactured locally in Sydney, which allows us to offer a diverse, exclusive and quality-driven collection, unmatched in the industry.

Why Choose Us

About us

6 reasons why your office should be decked out in Krost furniture

1 OUR PROFESSIONAL TEAM

We sell office furniture solutions tailored to you. Once colour, size, finish, fabric and use are taken into account there are far too many permutations for a simple one size fits all answer.

Our sales consultants are office furniture experts and they will find the right solution for you based on your requirements and constraints. We also like to keep it simple for you - from proposal through project management and final sign-off you will only ever have one point of contact in our company.

2 WE MANUFACTURE WORKSTATIONS

It’s true. We do.

Why’s that good? Well, while our competitors limit you to one or two colours and sizes for your furniture, we make sure you get the perfect fit and offer you an extensive range of finishes for your office.

Also, because of this our lead times are unparalleled in the industry. If you need your office furniture yesterday, we’ll make it happen!

3 HIGH QUALITY EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS

Because we manufacture (see point 2 ☺), we can easily ensure the highest standards of quality control. Products that we do source are rigorously tested and scrutinised to make sure they make commercial grade.

We also stand by our products. The majority of our products feature 5-year warranties and we simply won’t sell anything we don’t have full confidence in. With over 90% of our range exclusive Krost designs, we offer a lot of unique and high-quality products in our collection.

4 UNPARALLELLED CUSTOMER SERVICE

Our company’s main goal is to offer you the best service and make your life as easy as possible. Everything we do is geared towards that. From our unique showroom, where every one of the products is on display, to our ordering process where we make sure we get you the right office furniture solution, to our speedy lead-times and also our after sales team and repair processes. We work really hard to give you the best office furniture experience.

5 COMPETITIVE PRICING

We have a lot of competitive advantages that give us price savings, from our vertically integrated supply chain to our strength and history in the marketplace and we like to pass those savings onto you.

Sure, you can go to the corner store and buy a $59.95 fake-leather office chair. But, then you would have to pull out your toolset, hope it fits together alright and if it does, we shudder at the thought of the damage its doing to your body, through it’s non-existent padding, lousy mechanism and misaligned ergonomics. We sell the antithesis of that, high quality products at unmatchable prices.

6 EXPERIENCE

Since 1989, we’ve been leaders in the office furniture industry. We know office furniture and at some point have dealt with virtually every situation.

Our technical proficiency at planning offices and providing the right furniture, coupled with a vast array of experiences in such a diverse range of office environments yields extraordinary results through the way that we go about our business. All of this ultimately makes your purchasing experience even smoother.


Environmental Policy

We know office furniture can leave a big footprint on the environment. We see it as our responsibility to minimise that footprint as much as possible. Across all our ranges, we strive to use environmentally friendly materials and production processes.

What differentiates us from our competitors though, is that we recognise it’s not only the materials that matter. The product’s lifespan, reusability and versatility are equally important.

That's why our furniture is designed to be reusable, as well as recyclable.

Our systems are adaptable and can be disassembled and reassembled. So, if you need to relocate, your office furniture can be moved and refitted with your business.

Our impact on the environment has become a key measure of our success. We have endeavoured to extend beyond any environmental regulation, design products around their impact on the environment, limit our impression on natural resources and decrease our waste output.

Krost is proudly ISO 14001:2004 certified for environmental management control as well as ISO 9001:2008 certified for our quality management processes and are also a member of the Green Building Council of Australia. We strive to be as efficient as possible in everything that we do and are determined to maintain these certifications which demonstrate our commitment to sustainable business practices.

Ergonomics

About us

Ergonomics is the study of designs that suit the human body, its movements and its interacting environment. Ergonomically designed office furniture will achieve 2 main goals:

1 INCREASED HEALTH

2 INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY

This has been confirmed in numerous scientific studies, with the most recent showing that the ergonomics of a workspace are highly correlated to:

  • Job performance
  • Job satisfaction
  • Employee wellbeing

With a typical employee spending upwards of 7 hours a day in their office chair - the most important aspect of an ergonomic office is the seat. With that in mind, it makes good financial and practical sense to view the office chair as an investment in your staff and company.

An effective office chair enhances posture, relieves spinal pressure and reduces back and neck pains. We offer a wide range of chairs that satisfy different body shapes, job types and working environments.

Our chairs differ in material composition, type of mechanism and adjustment controls. We offer 4 types of chair mechanisms and a number of different adjustment controls across our range. One type of chair mechanism is not necessarily better than another. Rather, they’re suited to different people and types of work. Similarly, a chair doesn’t need to have all the adjustment controls to be a good ergonomic choice. A chair should be chosen based on the ability for a user to interact comfortably with their working environment.

Even though you should aim to be in the most ergonomically correct position for the majority of your time seated, it is not healthy to maintain the same position for long hours. You should temporarily change positions, stretch or allow the chair to be in free-recline to relieve some muscles and activate others.

Please don’t hesitate to find the perfect chair for yourself or your company by visiting our showroom and testing them out.
