For those working from home, Girsberger has developed the functional and aesthetically appealing "La Punt" furniture range. This space-saving solution meets all the requirements of a professional home office. Essentially, "La Punt" is a bridge-like solid wood console desk with a fold-away work surface, making it suitable for any home. Not least thanks to its solid wood construction, it is an office desk which fits perfectly into living spaces. The range also comprises various additional storage elements that can be combined to create customized workspace solutions.
With the work surface folded away, "La Punt" is a narrow sideboard which takes up very little space. With it folded out the desk becomes a fully functional workspace. "La Punt" is Romansh and means the bridge, as well as being a village in the Upper Engadine. This is exactly how the idea for the desk was conceived, explains "La Punt" designer Mathias Seiler: "A solid wood console acts as the bridge supporting the folding work surface, the thin solid core material of the latter providing an interesting contrast to the solid wood of the console."
With the work surface packed away, "La Punt" is just 40 cm deep. With it folded out, the large two-tier workspace is 80cm deep – large enough to be a fully functional computer desk. The solid wood console can also be fitted with a shelf at the bottom, which provides plenty of storage room for folders, documents or even a printer and is completely concealed when the work surface is folded down. After work the laptop or keyboard and any work documents can be pushed back off the work surface onto the shelf behind and the surface folded down – so the room immediately looks neat, tidy and more spacious.
The console desks have counterbalance weights at the rear to ensure they are stable even when the work surface is extended. They are available in oak or walnut, in widths of 120 or 160 cm. The work surface and storage shelves are made from solid core in a choice of black or white veneer finish. Alternatively they are available with a FENIX coating, a matt nanotech material which makes surfaces elegant and soft to the touch.
Power can be accessed via a fold-away cable tray for socket strips, cables and transformers. The storage area above can also be equipped with a socket strip to enable speedy connection of mobile devices.
Additional storage elements are available as sideboards with a height of 58 cm or highboards with a height of 84 cm, both available in widths of 60 or 120 cm. These make the console desks into a complete home office solution. Various different versions are available with the option of shelves or drawers. Like the console desks, all storage elements have a flat storage area at the top which can be fitted with optional flat drawers made of aluminium plate. These universal and mobile storage components are perfect for documents and office accessories.
"La Punt" is not just the ideal solution for homeworking; in the office, too, the solid wood storage elements combine extremely well with Girsberger conference tables and desks.
With this new furniture, Girsberger is further increasing its range of impressive homeworking solutions and at the same time showcasing its expertise in solid wood processing. Never before has the intermeshing of work and home life been as relevant as it is today, which is why Girsberger is offering a comprehensive selection of homeworking furniture – including ergonomic swivel chairs, its console desk and various different storage elements.
