Ahrend launches new 'Jetstream' desk

Tuesday 3 February 2009

Ahrend, the Dutch expert in the field of flexible furnishing solutions, has launched a revolutionary office desk, the Jetstream, which is inspired by a jetliner.

Designed by renowned Dutch designer, Marijn van der Poll, the design was inspired by the De Havilland Comet, history’s first commercial jetliner, which carried passengers around the world during the 1950s.

Moving away from traditional office desk design and more towards an increasingly flexible work, benching and lounge-type worksites, the Jetstream sports a quirky wing-inspired single, big, flat design of the desk’s surface and clean lines.

“The Jetstream is symbolic of liberation from the physical constraints imposed by traditional office tables,” explained designer Marijn van der Poll.

“With the advent and adoption of laptops and PDAs in the corporate world, office executives no longer are nailed to their desks,” he added.

The Jetstream main features are both the flat surface or ‘wing’ and base of the desk which comprises a polyester sheath on a steel inner frame. The base has been strengthened to guarantee optimum stability, and the worktop surface is finished in a high-gloss lacquer.

The Ahrend Middle East headquarters and showroom, which will showcase a range of furniture styles and designs including the new Jetstream desk, is slated to open its doors next month in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (Jafza).-
