Schiavello raises the bar in flexible desking with Centric
March 19th, 2009
One of the simplest ways to speed the success and completion of a project is having the right tool for the job. Another is the right environment; one that not only caters to diverse business functions and multi-use performance, but raises the bar in ergonomic thinking.
The newest addition to Schiavello’s stable of internationally renowned workplace solutions is Centric, a unit that embodies flexibility and innovation. Designed and manufactured in Australia, this innovative desk system allows the user to vary desk heights independently along a single plane.
Unique to Centric is the degree of user adjustability, providing fixed-height, technician or full electronic adjustability that facilitates both sit and stand options (720mm to 1050mm).
Customers can choose from the extensive range of veneer, glass or powder coated MDF worktops all of which are mounted on a powder coated aluminium and nylon frame.
When desks are placed back to back, a connecting rail completes the unique H-leg frame, removing the need for supporting feet. The result is less clutter beneath the desk and greater usable storage space, further enhanced by Centric’s cable reticulation system.
This rectilinear unit can be reconfigured to accommodate placement in 90° or 120° clusters of varying lengths and widths.
With over forty years leading the design, engineering and manufacture of furniture in Australia, it is no surprise this next step ahead has come from Schiavello.
