...Schulze telling, and epoch conform, refers to Modern Efficiency Desks as "sanitary" desks in contrast to the older unsanitary type... The reduced design also allowed Modern Efficiency Desks to be constructed from metal, a not unimportant consideration in an age when company's records and files were all stored on paper and fire was ever present reality...
Desks for the home office
In addition to a suitable desk lamp and an ergonomic office chair, an optimal desk is the be-all and end-all of every successful office design. Aesthetic preferences just as much as functional aspects must be taken into account when choosing a desk. If, for example, you work regularly from the home office, you need a spacious, robust table surface and a desk with functional solutions, such as the Montana HiLow 2 desk which leaves nothing to be desired in this regard and has, for example, a cable outlet in the table top. A cable tray can be added to the popular Eiermann table by Egon Eiermann, also known as the architect's table. For a flexible workspace in the living area, and that is used occasionally, space-saving small desks or secretaries are recommended. Design enthusiasts are best advised with elegant, light models such as the Thonet secretary S 1200 or the Vitra Compas Direction, which can be used flexibly in the dedicated office, but also as a workplace in the living room, or can be used in the entrance area.
Functional desk solutions for contemporary offices
Today, modern offices are designed and furnished in such a way that flexible and concentrated work is guaranteed, but open structures and teamwork can also be realised. An important component is the appropriate desk in connection with ergonomic office chairs and a coordinated light planning. Functional desks in a reserved design with large work surfaces, such as the USM Haller desks, promote structure and concentration, are suitable for flexible teamwork and can also be equipped with several monitors and various accessories. The absolute trend are height-adjustable desks that can be used as standing and sitting tables. On the one hand, the working position can be varied, on the other hand, standing tables can be used perfectly for short meetings. The dynamic Hack desk from Vitra is a refined, functional all-rounder. The USM Haller desk Advanced also has an adjustable table height and harmonises perfectly with all other USM Haller office furniture.
