The Radius Carrel ‘Charles’ Desk by Agati Furniture

Known for their monastic origin, a carrel desk is designed for a single user with high sides that isolate it from outside distractions. These days, the traditional desks are used in universities and libraries, but are most commonly modified for the office setting and are now referred to as “cubicle desks” to the general pubic. Launching their own version, Agati Furniture‘s Radius Carrel desk of the Charles Collection brings out the bright side of desk construction for the contract market.

Forget the boring slabs of wood that could easily separate desks by serving its function, Agati Furniture created the Radius Carrel desk of the Charles Collection using a motif of three squares on either side of its largest half moon desk surface. Like most carrel desks, the Charles Collection version features full height end panels to make sure each study area remains private and partitioned away from potential distraction.

Made from solid wood, both the frame and panel construction are built to last using the ultimate in contract quality for educational settings. Each desktop surface shows off an inset of Marmoleum with optional under-shelf lights, corner power and data columns for ease of use. Easily matching the other pieces of the Charles Collection, the Radius Carrel desks are also able to match other Agati Collections. The Charles Collection desks can be accompanied by chairs, benches, lounge chairs, tables, carrels, dictionary and atlas stands, as well as end panels of the Charles Collection.

Elegant wood finished with three squares to match the entire Charles Collection, the beautiful simplicity of the tech-friendly Radius Carrel desk comes through with a warm wood finish and durable construction.
