Since the transition from home offices to actual corporate offices has begun, it’s important to ensure that employees feel comfortable, safe, and motivated in their workplace. Adding an element of warmth will surely help employees to ease into their new work routine, after spending more than a year working from home. And, a great desk could really help with that! Simply a ‘good’ desk won’t do either. A great desk helps us work comfortably and effectively. It puts us in the right mindset, helping us achieve our daily productivity goals and checkmark all the tasks on our to-do list! Not only should our desks be clean, but they should also sport an ergonomic and functional design. One such desk I recently came across is the Zedo Desk.
Designer: Paolo Pampanoni for Narbutas
Designed by Paolo Pampanoni for the workplace furniture brand Narbutas, the Zedo desk is great to bring some personality and character into a dreary old corporate office. It can be used as an individual desk or linked together with multiple other Zedo desks. The flexible desk system has distinct metal parts, and colorful accessories to help you create a desk space according to your personal taste and requirements.
“For employees returning to the office from the comfortable home space, the ability to create more personalized workplaces with which it is easier to identify is crucial to ease the transition from home to the office space and reduce stress,” said Narbutas designer Greta Žukauskė.
The various accessories include – minimalist drawers, PET felt acoustic screens, power blocks, and three types of shelves. The shelves are of three kinds – side shelves, curved shelves, and a round shelf. The side shelves are the longest and can be attached to two or three table legs. The curved shelves, on the other hand, can be attached one on top of the other, and the round shelf is positioned higher than the desk and can function as a small additional table.
You can also attach a desk-mounted rotatable extension table which is quite similar to the round shelf and can be used as a standing desk or a meeting table for discussions. As ideal as Zedo is for office space, it could also work great in your home office! You can team it up with the Polytone-L chair, which is also by Narbutas.
