Watson’s Edison Rail is a Bright Idea

Bend the rail and break the rules with Watson’s inspired Edison system, a collection of workspace furniture that eschews the boring old straight line.

Edison operates on all angles, so to speak. The collection’s literal and figurative spine is a bendable rail system that pivots from zero to 90 degrees around the mid-leg between each segment.

The rail not only constitutes the base framework for attaching and linking desks, storage, and accessories, it also houses power and data infrastructure in a seamless and continuous conduit that’s discretely out of view.

The flexibility of the rail system enables multiple exciting and unorthodox configurations, from zig-zagging arrangements to subtler off-sets to the compelling “uphill” effect achieved with the Edison Riser desk.

What Watson refers to as “bending the rail” not only creates a unique aesthetic, but also enhances worker wellness, “improving sightlines and making workstations feel more spacious, without having to sacrifice density or privacy.”
