I spend a substantial amount of my day on my desk, typing away to glory. Most of the time I also end up eating my meals on it! And binge-watching on Netflix as well. And I’m sure that’s the case with most of us, since working from home became the new norm, and our home offices became our new hang-out spots. But having a great desk is really important! 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! And good looks are an added bonus. And finding a desk that does all of the above can be a Herculean task. But worry not, I’ve found the perfect desk for you – the Tabs desk.

Designed by Pelin Özbalcı, the Tabs desk is designed for those who easily get distracted from their work. In today’s day and age, we are constantly consuming different kinds of content, and media, as a result of which our attention span is declining steadily. We find ourselves consistently procrastinating (the only thing we’re probably consistent at) and find it difficult to pay attention to any task for a long span of time. Much like the Windows tabs on our laptops and computer, the Tabs desk has also been equipped with different tabs. There are three tabs built using three different materials – the Fabric tab, Felt tab, and Cork tab. The tabs have been installed on a double rail system, attached to the table, allowing you to move the modular tabs around.
You can use the Fabric and Cork tab with thumbtacks, attaching your important notes and documents to them, while you work. The Felt tab features elastics and pockets which can be used to display notes and documents as well, or to store items. You can move the tabs around, and place the subject you’re working on in the tab in front of you, while the other tabs with tasks that need to be attended to later, can be covered, preventing your attention from fluctuating. Once you finish a task, you can move that tab away, and start working on the next tab. This is an excellent way to help you to focus on tasks one by one, without overwhelming yourself or taking up more than you can handle. This ensures that our work process becomes more streamlined, and focused.
The tabletop of the Tabs desk has been kept quite simple and minimal, although the desk has been equipped with three drawers, below the tabletop. The drawers seamlessly blend into the sides of the table, without standing out.
