Computers, printers and other office equipment are getting smaller and smaller. Therefore, desktops do not need as much space as they used to. The new desk small office is slim design pieces which are particularly suitable for the home office syle and practical.
“Modern technology is the key factor in the demand for small desktops,” says Eckart Maise, Vitra’s Chief Design Officer.
The Swiss company has analyzed the wishes of consumers – regardless of whether they are working at home or at the company. It turned out that many people misused the large dining table as a workplace.
“But everyone really likes a place for his papers,” says Maise. “And small desktops are easy to use, in addition to a notebook or a tablet computer.”
Often there is not much space for such a furniture in the house – it is not rare in the bedroom or in the corridor.
The contemporary designs are therefore usually small or at least slim. They can be folded or flattened on the wall.
