Tables and Circulation Desks
Opening the Book has created an exciting range of curvy desks and tables to fit in with the curved shapes of our shelving.
Curved desks offer great opportunities for individual study; for example, each individual has more space and more privacy on our Curve Desk than on the equivalent straight shape. And they are fantastic in supporting group and collaborative working – just look at the variety of options for pairs, threes and larger groups to work together. Our innovative shapes give a lift to the spirits and they are completely practical too with clever designs where tables fit into each other for larger meetings. Choose a matching Circulation or Inquiry Desk to complete your new look library.
Our creative design team can help you plan the right mix of shelving and tables to maximise your space. Explore the concept of a Discovery Layout to understand how shelving and desking can be placed together in new ways. Then get in touch to see how we can create a unique design for your space.
