Herman Miller Enchord Desk
designed by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin

Herman Miller Enchord Desk At A Glance:
Designers Sam Hecht and Kim Colin of Industrial Facility created this ultra-adaptable desk for the ever-evolving needs of the dynamic home office. While it appears minimalist at first glance, the Enchord Desk has a fixed top surface and a movable secondary surface underneath that can be configured left, right, or center - leaving the desk with no defined front or back and making it approachable from any direction.

The work we do at home makes special demands on our space and furniture. Designed specifically to support the wide range of tasks that happen at home, the Enchord desk and mobile cabinet are an affordable, simple, and downright clever solution to getting the homework done, keeping the papers you're using now organized and at hand, and letting you keep your phone and a sandwich nearby while you shop online.

The Enchord desk and mobile cabinet have a clean and streamlined look that makes them comfortable wherever you need them in your home. The desk is available with a chalk white laminate top surface and bright pesto green secondary surface or a white oak veneer top surface with chalk white laminate secondary surface. The smart tapered legs are made of steel for strength.

Herman Miller Enchord DeskWhat's To Like:
Two tabletops on the desk. What for? To provide the most function with the least unnecessary complexity. The primary surface is the "desktop" - where you do your work. The secondary surface beneath it, which slides, is for storing your laptop, routing cords and cables, and keeping the papers you're working with at hand and out of sight when you have to stop working to pick up the kids or sit down to dinner.

What's Not to Like:
The only difficulty the Enchord Desk presents is its lack of storage space. The Enchord Mobile Cabinet is available to provide coordinating storage, but if you need desk storage this won't be your first choice.

The Bottom Line:
For the clever minimalist in all of us, the Enchord Desk is a breath of fresh air. Its simplicity and playful design (and we do think that a sliding lower surface is playful to the hilt) speak to its creators' well-thought-out design process and love of unadorned beauty.

    Comments about Herman Miller Enchord Desk:

    I bought the Enchord desk for my home office and only wish I'd ordered sooner. It's ideal for artists, as it has plenty of space for lots of monitors and electronics, and you could so easily clear off the desk for painting, drawing, or even sewing. The second shelf underneath creates additional space for all kinds of items, although I personally like using the part that sticks out to set hot tea or coffee on without worrying about spilling on my laptop and art supplies. The desk is so versatile and would be great even as a casual kitchen table or for kids to share.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was quick and on-time, and the delivery crew was kind and helpful. They placed the box in the exact room I wanted the desk. Much appreciated.

    This is a beautiful desk, with the only draw back being the desk under the desk is somewhat hard to access. Good size, but it is nice and sturdy!

      It provides exactly what I require. My only disappointment is that it was manufactured in China. I don't know why Hermann Miller finds it necessary to produce so simple a desk overseas.

      • Q:

        1) I have midi keyboard that is 2.76" for total height (including knobs)

        Would it fit on the keyboard tray?

        2) Can I pull the keyboard out in front me instead of the side.
        3) I need the keyboard tray to be more than 33 inches wide. Is the width of the tray more than this dimension? What is the width of the kayboard tray?

        Thank you!

          A:

          No, the clearance for the Enchord Desk lower shelf is only 2.25" high. The lower shelf only moves side to side, not forward and back like a normal keyboard tray. The length of the shelf between the legs is 45" though so that would work for you.

      • Q:

        What is the dimension of the height between the top of the secondary desk surface and the underside of the top desk. I need to know how much space there is to stow an external hard drive.

          A:

          The height of the opening is 2 3/8". That would be great for filling, MacBook Air, an external drive, or an afternoon snack

          A:

          It is about 2 inches or so (maybe a little more)... I use two external hard drives that connect to my computer from the back. They are "slim" drives, but they are both Terra Byte drives. I recommend!
