Folding workstation could transform hot-desking

Posted by Marianne
November 7, 2014 in News

Hot-desking workers have been a come and go fixture in offices for many years. However, with many permanent desks and chairs taking up valuable space on office floors, a novel New Zealand design could have an answer.

Designed by two design graduates in the country, the folding desk promises to be affordable and portable. The designers, Fraser Callaway, 25, and Oliver Ward, 22, also say that the desk is100% recyclable.

Called the Refold cardboard desk, it is strong enough to carry the weight of a person standing on it too. So, it should be perfectly able to take a modern laptop or tablet with ease, together with the ubiquitous coffee that never seems to stray far from the hot-desker.

The desk is also designed to offer different height settings, completely customisable to suit demands, and can be put up or taken down in just a couple of minutes.

The desk can then be folded away into a carry case for easy transportation and storage until needed next time. For remote workers too it seems a good deal, with Callaway commenting:

“The desk showcases the perfect combination of innovation and environmental awareness. It’s simple and functional, yet sophisticated and beautiful.”

The product is presently being marketed for investment through a crowdfunding site, with the pair hoping to attract enough investment to really get their desk working.

Already the designers have garnered interest from UNICEF, with discussions taking pace to trial the desks in schools with a view to using them in disaster situations.
