Perhaps the most important furniture design of the 20th century, the cubicle, cubicle desk, office cubicle or cubicle workstation was created to isolate office workers from the sights and noises of an open workspace, helping them to concentrate without distractions. The business cubicle’s mission was to solve problems related to the use of furniture, but not the furniture itself. During the 20th Century the office environment had changed substantially, particularly in relation to the amount of information being processed. The amount of information an employee had to analyze, organize and maintain had increased dramatically.
Cubicle furniture help meet the changing needs of employees without having to purchase new furnishings or change permanent architecture. It allows for a degree of privacy and gives people the ability to personalize their workspace without impacting others around them. The modern cubicle furniture can be arranged and rearranged in various configurations allowing a variety of organizational and storage options, such as work surfaces, shelves, overhead storage, drawers and more based on your office needs. Office panel systems support collaborative work environments where two or more colleagues can team on projects when needed yet work independently at other times. Sizes and layouts can vary in an almost unlimited capacity providing unparalleled flexibility in tailoring workstations and reception desks to the size of the tasks being performed. Create an office capable of constant change and maximize efficiency in a small area. Modular cubicle systems are available in two main designs: panel-mounted and freestanding. Each with its advantages, panel-mounted desk systems offer greater design flexibility, can be equipped with internal power options and can be a bit taller to provide greater privacy and noise reduction. Freestanding panel systems are easily installed and reconfigured making them more convenient for firms that will often rearrange or move office space. Both designs incorporate fabric covered cubicle partitions to help absorb sound and prevent echoes, and have ample storage options.
When organizing your work space, think vertically, keeping in mind that cubicle panels can help give you some extra space. Colorful and attractive cubicle workstations also offer high aesthetic appeal with an array of fabric colors, painted steel panel trim and work surface laminates to choose from. Options like clear, frosted or patterned glass panels provide privacy without feeling shut in. Customize your office cubicle furniture to achieve any style or design.
