A Desk Is A Desk Right Wrong
You might believe that a desk is just a thing to plonk down behind and bash out reams of your brilliant ideas but you may be surprised to
know that it is more than that. If your desk makes your office utilisation uncomfortable or irritates your work style then your productivity
levels (and brilliance) will be hindered.
A corner office desk is a key element in an office and your work life. Invest your resources in getting the right one!
Your Unique Working Style
Before looking at finishes or credenzas, think about how you work at your desk. Are you 100% digital or is it an analog-digital combo or
more paper and minimal digital? If paper, is it huge paper or widespread? If digital, is it one monitor or 3? Do staff or colleagues come in
and need to spread out stuff on your desk for discussion purposes - from spreadsheets to clothing samples to geology cores from gold
On the other hand, do they do this but do you want to discourage them from doing this? These answers are the key to the first decisions
about your corner office desk!
Your Desk Structure
In a minimalist, fully digital setup, you might like a simple, rectangular glass with no accessories or add-ons. Then there is the height of
the desk and other ergonomics. The desk height guideline is usually 950 mm, however, for customisation purposes sit down as you usually
would (or stand if it is a standing desk) and, while keeping your arms beside you, bend your elbows to ninety degrees. If your hands rest
easily on the desk you have the right desk height. Otherwise, adjust accordingly.
Space & Flow Area
The position of the desk and its surrounding environment will influence the size and configuration. Loads of space? You can choose almost
any configuration. You can get an executive desk that can work in a challenging corner office, so don’t hesitate to ask us for our
Always consider if you honestly need “all” that desk counter space or if is it a dumping zone. How many electronics will be on
the desk counter and how many guests to expect to regularly receive?
Your working style will influence the amount of counter space that you need. Would you like to work on timber laminate, a metal-steel combo,
solid timber or wood-framed glass? If you apply physical pressure to work on your desk during the day then a solid desk will please you. If
you are mostly digital, then that rectangular glass desk will be appealing.
If you would like a new approach to a desking solution then there are great compact options for you that fold away. If ‘stuff’
tends to stand on your desk then folding away is not an option. A standing desk is an increasingly popular option but works best when
combined with a regular desk. And don’t forget to look at funky designs like desks made completely of cardboard or organic shapes with
integrated LED lights, etc. Your brand could influence your desk style if it is viewable to staff or visitors. Other important factors are:
- Environmentally friendly
- Robust and durable
- Light enough to easily reposition
- Low carbon footprint, recyclable or made from recycled items.
