Ambus Office Furniture Office Desks and Pedestals

All Ambus office desks are available on panel ends or two styles of metal frame: the original Ambus frame or the newer C-frame. All are fitted with access cutouts as standard, and wire management and pass-through ports are available as options. Recessed panels or recessed frames may be specified to maximise kneehole space when desks or desks and returns are linked together.

Rectangular Office Desks

Office desks 800mm to 2000mm wide

Wave Office Desks

Ambus offers two styles of office wave desk. The Ambus wave curls back to 800mm at each end, maximising flexibility of layout. The Classic wave is 800mm deep at one end and 1000mm at the other.

Double Wave Office Desks

Double wave office desks curve out to 1000mm at each end, and are available in 1600mm and 1800mm widths.

Compact Wave Desks and Workstations

Compact wave units “wave in” from 800mm to 600mm or 525mm (depending on range/model), compared to a conventional wave desk’s 1000mm to 800mm. This saves a very useful 200mm – yet when facing into the wave there is still more than adequate knee room. The small widths available add to the space-saving appeal. Compact wave workstations with integral pedestal offer exceptional value, and compact wave desks offer the flexibility of placing a pedestal (deep or shallow) to either side.

Corner Desks

Corner desks are available 1400mm to 2000mm wide, with a return side measuring 1200mm. There are also 1800mm and 2000mm D-ended corner desks.

Simple Corner Desks

Simple corner desks feature a simplified structure and reduced range of sizes – but offer a cost saving.

Bow Front Corner Desks

Optional bow fronts offer a different visual style and provide enhanced knee room for visitors pulling up to the front of the desk.

Compact Corner Desks

The return side is reduced to 1000mm (from the 1200mm of a standard corner desk) – still providing plenty of depth when used with a flat screen monitor, but saving space by reducing the workstation footprint. Shown here with C2 frame option.

120º Workstations
