Remote work: compact desks for new needs

As the work space evolve, so does the furniture. This change involves not only the arrangement of the space, but also our customs related to where and how we complete our daily work. Desks become essential, versatile and multifunctional workstations that meet the ever-changing needs of the digital age. From the minimalist design of Novelist to the retro lines of Poltrona Frau's Pavilion desk and Iren, these furniture elements feature new technological details and a light, compact aesthetic value, which has turned them into authentic must-have items.

The idea behind &Tradition's Pavilion desk was to produce a small item that could be placed freestanding, against a wall, or grouped together, with a typical Scandinavian appeal. Bent metal tubes curve up to the rectangular top, available in two finishes, which can also be equipped with a laminate back panel in order to hold the work space and define its boundaries. Designed during the Pandemic period, the Pavilion desk considers the needs and drastic changes of remote work.
