5 promising desks as we head back to work

Full of promising discoveries, the return to work this year is stocking up on new ideas! And among them, some designer desks are taking pride of place in redefining space, a hybridisation between the professional and personal sphere. Essential, luxury, durable or flawless… Whatever their names, these 5 desks chosen by our teams create the foundation of a perfect home office to get off on the right foot. Here's why we love these contemporary desks:

New Modern desk by Tip Toe,
the king of modularity

Comfortable and extremely sturdy, the New Modern designer desk series ticks all the boxes for a home office that's easy to adopt: functional and well thought out, refined because it consists of very few elements, with contemporary lines. The collection is adaptable and offers a wide range of sizes: standard desk size, meeting table or even Open Space desk. The French company Tip Toe has created one of the first desks in eco-certified wood, assembled in France in an ESAT (establishment for the integration of people with disabilities).

The Slab desk by Tom Dixon,
the good student

Integrated pencil box and reduced dimensions, in oak... Tom Dixon reinterprets the school desk and infuses it with elegant, sober modernity: its rounded, soft shapes, cable hole and compact style make it an ideal desk to create a workspace in small rooms (or otherwise).

Pavillion desk by &Tradition,
delightfully retro

At a time when the boundaries between workplace and place of relaxation are becoming blurred, the Pavillion desk creates perfect fluidity between the two spaces: aesthetic with its chic curves and mix of materials, and functional by its purity, it marks the revival of Scandinavian design.

Zanotta's Tucano desk,
haute couture

With its striking elegance, this original desk designed by Italian brand Zanotta consists of a steel frame painted matt black, crowned with a top in cowhide leather. The choice of material - very daring - testifies to the desire for durability sought by Zanotta: leather, natural and destined to burnish over time, promises to have a great story to tell. In 2020, this desk received a Best of Year Product award from Interior Design magazine.
