20 Handy Portable Desks

From Briefcase-Converting Furniture to Two-Wheeled Offices

— February 4, 2015 — Art & Design
When a job needs getting done while you're set to be out of office, you'll want to explore mobile workstation options like these portable desks. Many designers have come up with all sorts of unique solutions, enabling people to remain productive, whether they're in a cafe, a park, at home, or just down the hall within their company headquarters.

The most lightweight of these products are the single wooden panels and the flatpacked cardboard escritoires. These can be easily dismantled and reconstructed for surprisingly sturdy surfaces. Still easily transportable, but requiring a roll, are stacked workstations on wheels and oversized suitcase cubicles. These mobile furnishings are ideal for people who must physically move between departments quite often. No matter where you are when work must be done, one of these portable desks will support your professional efficiency on the go.
