  • Optimal Options

    Material Minimalism

    The design utilizes grooves and cutouts, which minimizes the need for joints and screws. Cutting a desk’s parts and pieces from sheet metal is an efficient process that minimizes waste. Furthermore, molding and angling those pieces uses less energy than welding them or than using extruded or cast metal. The desk is sturdy, but the manufacturing techniques are kinder to the environment.

  • An Array of Options

    Power Up

    Today’s work requires tech tools, and lots of them—all of which need power. An optional power bar enhances productivity by putting power at the desktop and keeping messy cords off of the work surface. Built into the desktop for easy access, the power bar recharges laptops, tablets and phones while neatly storing their cords and wires. With the power bar, Optimis becomes a true technology partner at the office.

  • Responsible Design

    Optimis does more with less.

    Optimis flexes and morphs, making it easy to alter the workspace at no additional cost. Its concise vocabulary of components for the product base can be recombined into 30 different reconfigurations—just one more way that Optimis does more with less.

  • Expressive Character

    Optimal Options

    As Charles Eames once said, details make the design. Optimis’s raised toolbar has a linear, floating form inspired by the Japanese torii, angular gates at the entrance of Shinto shrines. It keeps the desktop free for work in process and supports accessories like a whiteboard, monitor arm, and Cloud storage box. Folded-paper shelves, trays, box files, and note stands snap onto the toolbar to keep papers, books, and pens out of the way, but close at hand. Whimsical paper birds and trees also fit onto the toolbar, providing variety for the eye and inspiration for the mind.
