Fulcrum Freestanding Desks

A comprehensive selection of panel end desks in a wide range of sizes and shapes, all featuring the distinctive gently arching Fulcrum back panel.

Cable management in Freestanding Desks

All freestanding desks have 80mm diameter cable ports in the tops, in matching veneer to the top. Vertical cable management may additionally be specified on the inside of the panel ends, optionally with the addition of pass-through ports enabling routing of cables between desks placed side by side. Cable trays may be fitted to the inside of modesty panels to provide horizontal cable routing and support for sockets. Flexible cable spines provide an additional option for vertical cable routing.

Recessed Panels

Most desks offer the option of recessed panels on either or both sides, optimising knee space when desks are linked together.

Rectangular Desks

1600mm to 2000mm wide, optionally with a bow front.

Corner Desks

Corner desks are available 1600mm to 2000mm wide, with a return side measuring 1200mm: optionally available with a bow front. 

Freestanding Returns

Small desk-height supplementary work surfaces, offering both rectangular and wave shape tops, designed to be placed at 90° to another work surface.

Conference Extensions

Supplementary work surfaces in a choice of two shapes designed to be placed at the end of desk to provide a small meeting facility at the desk without the need for a separate meeting table. Available on both metal and timber column bases.

In addition to our standard veneers we offer inlays of burr and exotic veneers, which are also available on cable management flaps and tiles.


Top shapes

  • Barrel
  • D-end.
  • Oval
  • Circular (straight or radial veneered,  where the veneer grain is laid in ‘pie slices’ forming a radial pattern on the top surface.

  • Box bases – a substantial rectilinear base that especially suits rectangular tops and square edges. Cables may optionally be routed through the base
  • Column bases – 300mm diameter timber columns on a circular footplate capped in Black or White glass, or in Satin Stainless Steel. Cables may optionally be routed through the base
  • Arrowhead bases – the classic arrowhead base. We offer optional 'cloaking panels' that fit across the point of the vee, enabling cables to be routed discreetly behind
  • Poseur bases – a high variant of pedestal base supporting small circular standing height tables.


Cable Management for Tables


Cable Management Tiles: optional lift-out tiles provide access to a high-capacity cable tray into which sockets may be located at any point. Tiles may be specified in a matching or contrasting veneer (including ‘feature’ burr and other exotic veneers), or in White glass, frosted Green glass or Black mirror glass. Glass tiles offer the additional benefit of providing a heat and liquid resistant surface.

Cable Management Flaps: hinged flaps giving access to a cable tray which can accommodate sockets and excess cable. Flaps are available in matching or contrasting veneer, as for tiles above.

Flip-top Sockets: with a lid that hinges open to reveal the chosen selection of sockets. The flap may be closed during operation, leaving only the cables visible. Pop-up Sockets: comprising a circular port which can be raised up to provide access to a vertical socket block.

Timber Cable Ports: 80mm diameter cable ports in veneer to match the top surface, positioned as required.

Flexible Cable Spines: to keep cables tidy where is it impractical to route them within the furniture we offer freestanding flexible cable spines that may be positioned wherever desired.

Sockets and Cables: we offer a comprehensive choice of suitable power and data sockets and connecting cables.

Important notes about veneers and hardwood timbers
We use solid hardwoods and wood veneers whose varying grain and figure emphasise the natural beauty and individuality of the wood. No two pieces of timber are identical, and there will be natural variations in hue, grain and figure, and both knots and colouring arising from natural minerals in the wood. None of these variations or features are faults: they are simply proof of the natural origin of the product. Please note that most timbers and veneers either lighten or darken on exposure to light. Should you add additional items at a later date, there may be an initial colour mismatch that should even out over a period of time.

Fulcrum Handles

Fulcrum is available with a choice of three handles:

  • Solid timber Executive handle
  • Elegance Bow handle
  • Fulcrum Pro handle (chrome+timber)
