Dezeen Showroom: trestle legs and a customisable, J-shaped privacy screen distinguish the Solari desk system, developed by Italian office furniture company IOC Project Partners in collaboration with Gensler.
The workbench can be electronically height-adjusted and used in both a seated and standing form, with an integrated alarm alerting the user when it’s time to change positions.
On its own, the desk encourages collaboration and can even be used in a domestic set-up, while an optional, noise-absorbing divider screen can be added to facilitate deep work and concentration in an open-plan office.
The divider curves in at the bottom to form a distinctive J-shape that holds all of the necessary wiring while keeping floor space clear.
“Solari was conceived with a casual but distinct design language that recalls a design-atelier aesthetic,” said Mark Morton, design director and principal at Gensler.
“We set out to create a system that diminishes the familiar large componentry of typical systems furniture in favor of thin profiles, bent metals and minimal detailing,” added design director and senior associate Jonas Gabbai.
With a mission to “give every occupant a sense of personal space” each of the dividers is outfitted with a fabric panel, which comes in a range of vibrant Kvadrat colours and can serve as a backdrop for personal photos, notes and reminders.
Additional storage can be added on in the form of a suspended pedestal or cabinet.
