Reviving the Standard Workstation

A Los Angeles-based company requested a unique desk leg design that would stand out from the sea of traditional workstations. They wanted to place a greater emphasis on aesthetics and avoid the standard power beam or pin wheel design for wire management in a workstation pack. Studio Other was put to the test to create a unique but functional design that houses all electrical within a sit-stand workstation leg. The company collaborated closely with Studio Other to explore various options, eventually landing on an angled leg design that exceeded all expectations.  


The Challenge: How do we provide our clients a unique and distinctive design that still houses all of the necessary tools and support for a sit-stand desk? Is there a way to successfully break away from the traditional workstation T-foot, L-foot, and C-foot leg designs? How do we design and engineer a leg that will maintain the weight of a standard desk, either seated or standing, while still concealing the wires through the desk itself?

The Solution: Studio Other closely studied the counterbalance of leg placement and designed a steel V-leg that maintains the integrity of the workstation aesthetic and establishes a more open feel in the space that it occupies. This adjustable table design stands as the main architectural detail and serves as the primary design element among a landscape of workstations. Ultimately, the new angled leg design overthrows the height-adjustable archetype while providing an engineering solution for weight distribution. This groundbreaking design achieves a level of flexibility unmatched by traditional desking, setting a new precedent for sit-stand workstation design.

Studio Other is made up of a diverse group of creatives, makers and builders who value the art of craftmanship both within and beyond their job description. In the time spent outside of the office, you’ll find many of our people working on their artistic endeavors, crafting primarily with their hands and using various mediums. In what feels like a lifetime ago, our team was working on Studio Other projects in a similar manner, drawing up sketches on pen and paper and presenting every idea and revision in person. While there’s certainly a level of nostalgic appeal in using analog methods, the bottom line is that they allowed for slow turnaround, inefficient manufacturing and room for error.
