Why Office Desks Are A Business Essential
It makes sense that desks are a development of tables, but the specific point that tables started to be used for work purposes is a little unclear. Among ancient Chinese populations tables were created and used for arts and crafts, such as painting, so it could be said that these were very early desks as they were providing a work surface of some kind. It’s not until hundreds of years later, that desks as we know them started being manufactured.
It’s all write
Before printing began to be carried out by moveable presses in the 15th Century, most writing was done by hand, and for this, the first early desks were used. They included a work surface and special hooks and areas for equipment, such as bookmarks, and writing implements. Made from wood, it could be argued that the overall design of desks hasn’t changed a huge amount, because those basic elements that were important to early writers, are still highly valued today - a sturdy product and room for equipment.
As the demand increased for desks, the design did start to diversify to meet new kinds of customers, for example, some people were keen to buy desks used solely for letter writing and for a location to catch up on their domestic correspondence, such as paying bills and signing checks. Designs also began to develop to suit those working in certain professions where they need drawing or drafting boards.
Designed for the times
More jobs in white collar careers combined with industrial innovations meant that there was a higher demand for desks and greater capability to make them too, which led to mass production and increased affordability. The 20th Century saw more variety of materials being used across all kinds of furniture - including desks. At this time, typewriters were used in many industries, and desks were adapted to suit them and boost their robustness. Different designs were produced, including those incorporating metals, like steel.
Our 1500mm rectangular office desks has been especially designed by us for the demands of 21st Century offices and business premises. A top requirement for many of today’s companies is to make sure locations fit the brand they host!

Our desks offer a contemporary, stylish feel because of the light oak finish of the top and the chic chrome legs.
