25 Desk Design Innovations

From Collapsible WFH Desks to Open Concept Workspaces

— November 7, 2020 — Art & Design
These desk design innovations range from collapsible work-from-home furniture to desk-integrated laptop stands.

With consumer demand for work-from-home furniture higher than ever -- a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic -- brands are creating solutions that help transform living spaces into comfortable workspaces. Some standouts include the 'MARCEL' folding desk, a collapsible furniture piece designed by Christophe Gernigon Studio. The piece is made from oak veneer and is easy to fold up when not in use.

Other desk design innovations to note include MaNa's Rizr, a laptop case and standing desk solution that is designed for those with ultra limited space. The laptop sleeve is a portable desk solution that is lightweight and easy to set up just about anywhere, making it ideal for students and those looking to get work done while in transit.
