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.

Curve Desk

Seats five with computers or six with smaller tablets. You can flow desks together in longer curves or S-shapes. That looks attractive and also enables power and data to be brought out from the wall under the desk.

Byte Table

Seats six or up to nine for collaborative working. Click through the pictures to see how Small Orbit tables fit into the Byte to make a meeting table for twelve.

Core Table

The full Core seats ten. The half core seats five and is a good shape for a teaming table. Click through the pictures to see how Large Orbit tables fit into the Core to make a meeting table for sixteen.

Cluster Tables

Seats one or two and combines with Small Orbit tables for flexible use.

Occasional Tables

Square, rectangular and rectangular shapes to fit with every seating configuration. Includes a shelf which can be a contrast color. And don't worry about people perching - this table is strong enough to sit on.

Circulation and Inquiry Desks

The curved shape helps people feel at ease when checking out books or asking a question. The open table end meets the needs of wheelchair users and also signals a new relationship between staff and customers – here’s a space to sit together without a barrier, it's great for longer inquiries or student support. We offer all-seated or two-height versions in three sizes.
