village wall by tellus furniture

The first thing I have to tell you about this desk system is you can't get it anymore. Tellus was an independent company owned by Paoli who was primarily a maker of wood office furniture, desks and casework. At some point they took the Tellus product line in house, and now I'm afraid its just gone. Too bad, as this was a very interesting desk and storage system. Continue to see more photos and description.

Village Wall is a combination bookcase/storage wall and desk. The storage wall is used to create division between two back to back workstations. So your shelf system backs up to your neighbors desk, and the back of you neighbors shelf system is a tack board above your desk. Along with the tack board there is a sliding white board that can be positioned over the tack board, or alternatively in front of your shelves, hiding the contents.

You desk is connected to the shelf system, but it is on a large pivot which allows you to rotate your desk, to either make it more open or more enclosing. Your file drawers are in a low cart, that can park out of the way under your shelves, or be kept at your site, giving you a second low surface to place active work on top of.

I like the uniqueness of this workstation. I like the way it can define space and create a little bit of privacy in an open office. And I like the moving parts that make it feel more dynamic than a fixed desk. Darn! Why does stuff like this have to go away when so much boring furniture with limited function floods the market! I think a good wood worker could recreate much of this for you if you were determined to fit out your office this way.

Normally I'd give you a link right here, but there is no place to link too. :-(
