In business, impressions matter. An impeccable wardrobe, a powerful office suite, and executive furniture all project our ability to get things done and done right. The executive desk is a big part of the language we speak to our colleagues and clients. It says, “I know what I’m doing and I’m good at it.” However, sometimes, we need an executive desk to answer the question, “What have you done for me lately?”
Where do we stand?
As we learn more about ergonomics, we have to take a closer look at the executive desk and its ability not only to say what we want it to say, but also do what we want it to do. Sit-stand desks are a fantastic way to keep the blood flowing, relieve pressure on painful joints, and keep us from stagnating in a pool of low energy. But a majority of the sit-stand options on the market are not up to executive desk aesthetic standards. Honestly, they’re ugly. They don’t carry the authoritative weight a beautiful, solid executive desk should always have.
Outside the boxy desk
There are few options for executive sit-stand desks on the market that still have elegance in their design. Most of them still involve a base with a rising table, exposing unsightly pneumatic arms that detract from their overall beauty. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
A custom designed executive desk could be the answer. An adjustable height credenza built to accommodate the standing function gives the flexibility you need while continuing the pleasing and powerful aspect of your desk. Perhaps modernity is the theme you’re going for with chrome and glass; consider telescoping desk legs so the overall lines aren’t interrupted by mismatched materials. Another option is a panel, which holds both your monitor and keyboard, and at the touch of a button, you can raise and lower it to your desired height. When seated, the panel is seamless with the rest of the desk surface.
Don’t settle for anything less than style, sophistication, and comfort. With careful appreciation of the visual details, Strong Project can design an ingenious desk layout and surrounding office suite, giving you the beautiful, functional, commanding executive desk you desire with all the benefits standing can offer.
