Watson has been awarded US Patent Number 8,104,410 for the Seven “reconfigurable desk with invertible working surface.” Watson’s design is a first in the contract office furniture market and remains the stand-alone answer for overall furniture inventory reduction.
Watson introduced the Seven reconfigurable desk in 2010 after a client-inspired development period. One of Watson’s clients challenged Watson to provide user-preferred, contoured shaped desks, and address the inventory and storage issues that come with handed shapes.
Watson’s Seven desk solved the dilemma. A patented flippable worksurface allows a single contoured surface to be used right- or left-handed. Conventional contoured worksurfaces cannot be repositioned on their bases, and must be stored if they are ‘wrong-handed’ within a new configuration.
