In the world of ergonomic office furniture, the name Teknion is often heard. It must be said that this Canadian family-owned company, now chaired by David Felberg, the founder’s grandson, has its assets up its sleeve. His credo? A high-end catalog both in terms of design and technology and a company that displays its values high. Like authenticity and respect for the environment. And it is not the latest of its sit-stand desks, the HiSpace Quick Connect, that will reverse the trend.
Both elegant and at the forefront of research and development, it comes to close a year 2020 full of new models. Containment has put ergonomics back in the spotlight and manufacturers have received the message. Zoom on the last born of this creative wave. HiSpace Quick Connect concludes the year of sit-stand desks in an honorable way, to say the least.
A high technological level
HiSpace Quick Connect from Teknion is a sit-stand desk equipped with a silent electric mechanism. Mechanism which is obviously used to adjust its height. State-of-the-art, HiSpace can be automatically adjusted from one position to another with the push of a button. “The best part is actually what you don’t see,” says Dannon Smith, the brand’s chief product officer. The worktable is pre-wired with efforts made to hide unsightly cables. It uses sophisticated, fully customizable software. Finally, it includes the most advanced collision detection system on the market.
The desk is centered around a square profile leg, neutral leg, and a programmable digital display switch. Equipped with a “connection kit”, the top frame of the table is preinstalled on the work surface. Another technological feat, the office is equipped with a Power Pak. It’s a pre-wired felt blanket cable organizer that manages all cables and controls. It allows control of the control box, switch, motor cables and table power cord. Finally, the eyelets allow cables to be passed discreetly from the top to the bottom of the work surface.
The desk is adjusted by push-button with height display and three memory positions. It is also possible to reconfigure the maximum and minimum height limits. The table is available in five widths and two different depths. The lifting capacity is approximately 220 kilograms.
A sober and elegant design
The choice of colors and finishes reminds us of the effort put into design. The height adjustable table base includes three finish options: very white, ebony and platinum. Work surfaces are available in Foundation Laminate and Seamless finishes. With optional straight or rounded edge. Sober and elegant colors designed to blend into modern work interiors. The line has recently been adjusted to give a softer finish. Teknion also wanted to introduce more amenities, new technologies and an assembly time of less than 5 minutes.
Teknion’s HiSpace Quick Connect is a real gem of ergonomics and design. Its price, slightly over 1000 euros, also places it at the top of the pile at this level. If opinions are not yet available on the web, there is no doubt that this sit-stand desk will delight its buyers. Because no doubt that at this price, they are entitled to have expectations.
