I spend a major chunk 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 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 a 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 Arqus Desk.
Italian studio Orlandini Design designed the Arqus Desk for Narbutas. The Arqus Desk is a part of the Arqus Collection, and it was designed to be a counterpart to the heavy and bulky furniture that we see in corporate offices and executive workspaces. The Arqus Desk is marked by light lines and distinctive metal legs and showcases a lighter and subtler type of furnishing in office spaces.
“My goal was to update the executive area and the related furnishing elements, by maintaining the representative importance but conferring it with lightness and dynamism,” said Orlandini Design founder Folco Orlandini. The “expressive” metal legs and the optionally asymmetrical desktop shape signify and capture the manager’s ability to adapt and adjust to changing circumstances, and skill to look at situations from different perspectives and angles.
The Arqus desk is available in an L-shaped version, equipped with a fixed pedestal to the right or left of the desk, which contains shelves and drawers for easy and efficient storage. The elegant desk is made from veneered chipboard and is 96% disassemblable, and recyclable according to Narbutas, making it a rather convenient and eco-friendly furniture piece.
