Functional Possibilities of the Wall Mounted Desks

Wall mounted desks are the completely new type of furniture, reinvented by designers as an answer to the modern work requirements and work activities on the laptop.

Bulky writing desks are “out” of fashion and from use. They have been replaced by writing desks of harmonious dimensions, functional and flexible or their place is now taken by the unit to suspend from a wall.

Wall mounted desks are in most cases foldable, can easily transform into a fully-functional working place and offer more than one function. Their transformation is achieved with rotating of the door, different ways of openings or by sliding part. Despite their small dimensions they usually provide storage space for the necessary things for work and thus help to organize the complex everyday life.

Wall Mounted Desks are flexible and offer solutions for any working height: as a normal seat workstation or as a standing desk for different users from adult to children. The height can be adjusted at any time.

Wall Mounted Desks are space-saving and especially desirable where there is no room for conventional furniture for your home, public space, hotel rooms, … They are inconspicuous and useful.

I will present you my choice of Wall mounted desks: foldable, fixed furniture or as a part of System furniture:
