Overview

Format Desk by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly

At A Glance:
With a cantilevered top and well-proportioned drawers, the Format Desk is an example of the intersection of good craftsmanship and thoughtful design. The desk's neoprene-lined multifunction center drawer keeps a keyboard, mouse and other rechargeable items organized and the convenient side drawers are ideal for keeping supplies close at hand.

What's To Like:
The center drawer's front swings down, making the drawer a truly functional keyboard tray and clearing up your desk's surface area (both for looks and to make space for the rockin' monitor you've got up there).

What's Not to Like:
If you're looking for a smaller laptop desk, the Format Desk may be too big for you at 24.25" deep and 64.25" wide. Try the smaller Cascadia Desk instead.

The Bottom Line:
The Format Desk is a desk with a blocky yet slender modern profile and multi-functional drawers, enabling you to make the most of your space in style.

Design Story

The Format Desk is an elegant, modern creation from up and coming designer Matthew Weatherly. The desk is a beautiful example of forma and function coming together in a single product to serve a single purpose - to make your working life better.

Let's start with the beauty, then we'll get to the brains. The Format desk is composed of steel and laminated material with either a black oak, walnut or plain white finish. It's not shaped in precisely the same way a traditional desk would be - it's a working space with wings. The polished steel legs support the middle section of the desk, which has two small wings that extend out even further. Each wing includes a desk drawer lined in neoprene (so things stay where they're supposed to stay, 100 of the time), and the desktop itself is smooth as a lake and just as lovely. This working space is defined by clean lines, smooth surfaces, and a gorgeous, modern design. Any working day started at a desk like this has to be just a bit brighter than it already is.

But the Format goes way beyond simple beauty. It's also a highly functional space to get work done. Beyond the neoprene lined drawers and tabs, the desk features a flip-down panel drawer in the middle, which is designed to hold your keyboard and mouse (or whatever else you need at a ready distance at all times). Like any modern desk worth its salt, this piece is also well equipped for the digital work environment, with panels that make it easy to use, access, and store the various cables and components that a modern worker depends on.

The Format Desk is a truly impressive piece of furniture. Pair it with other Format components, like the Mobile Credenza or the Mobile File Pedestal, for a complete look.
