Bench Desks: The Best of Modern Desks?

As the office furniture industry must evolve, so too must the furniture it produces. Arguably the most important furniture items in the world of the modern office worker are the office chair and the office desk (see last week’s blog post for a breakdown on modern office chairs). The most popular modern office desks at present are the innovative bench desks. Here we compare bench desks to their competitors and see just exactly why that is.

Classic Office Desks

The classic office desk is what the design of modern bench desks has improved upon. Practical & reliable, it most commonly comes with a metal cantilever base or wood panelled legs, in a variety of styles and wood finishes. Its flaws include a long assembly time, especially if assembling more than one, and limited leg room due to its design, which is where the bench desk brings us to the next level of practicality.

The most popular modern style of desks are undoubtedly the bench desks. They keep the part of the classic office desks that worked, the desktop, and improve upon its weakness, the frame. They employ an innovative shared leg system (hence the name ‘bench’), which allows much faster and easier assembly, especially if assembling more than one, as well as a lot free leg and floor space beneath the desktop.

Height Adjustable Desks

Height adjustable desks are also commonly known as sit-stand desks and ergonomic desks. You can adjust their height either manually or electronically, depending on the model, which makes for a more dynamic workspace. Proven to be more ergonomic, as they prevent their user from being confined to a seated position for long periods of time, they are, however, more of a niche product, and as such, are usually priced at the higher end of the spectrum.
