There are a variety of different ways to use modular furniture in any office environment. Here are just a few ideas and typical applications:

In Wide Open Rooms

As companies continue to grow, and commercial real estate costs continue to rise, modular furniture is the logical solution to get the most utility from the open space you have. We can custom tailor each workstation to the occupant's specific needs, work habits, and function within the company.

Wide Open Spaces With Modular Furniture

In Private Offices

Modular furniture can be used in private offices to create space efficient, cost effective alternative to traditional free-standing wood furniture. Panels can be used to divide private offices into individual work areas, as well as creating audible and visual privacy. Or you can simply use work surfaces mounted on "T-Legs" with wall mounted components (i.e. flipper doors, tack boards, task lights) to customize a work area to your individual needs.

Reception Areas

Modular furniture can be used to create a highly functional, upscale looking area to greet your customers at a very cost-effective price. Reception areas can also be outfitted in fabric and trim color to coordinate with the other modular furniture throughout the office.

How Do I Decide What Is Necessary Inside Each Cube?

The basic building blocks of any modular work station are as follows::

ItemIssues To Consider / How Used


Which height is optimal? 35", 42", 48", 54", 62", 66", 80" (standard Haworth™ panel heights). The level of privacy or interaction required between employees will determine height. In general, taller panels are more expensive. You can easily mix panel heights within a given installation for functionality or aesthetic reasons.

Work Surfaces

24" deep or 30" deep? 24" deep is the most popular, however if the occupant needs extra space to lay out blueprints or large documents, 30" deep may be more appropriate. Is a corner work surface necessary for a computer monitor, or is a rectilinear ("L" shape) work surface configuration all that is needed? Corner work surfaces are typical in about 95% of the installations we do.


Provides overhead storage for books or binders. Low versions are available where space is at a premium, and extra deep versions are available where maximum storage space is required. Most of the installations we do have at least one shelf per cube.

Flipper Door

Flipper doors turn a normal shelf into a lockable unit that can hide clutter at the end of the day. Typically most installations have one shelf and one flipper door per cube.

Pedestal File

What mix of filing and collateral storage is needed?

  • 3" high drawers are called "pencil" drawers and are good for storing pencils, pens and other small items.
  • 6" high drawers are called "box" drawers and are good for storing larger desk accessories.
  • 12" high drawers are called "file" drawers and are set up for filing regular or legal size Pendaflex folders.

We can create any combination of the above drawers depending upon one's individual needs. Typically most cubes are equipped with one (1) box/box/file pedestal file and one (1) file/file pedestal.

Pencil Drawer

A small drawer that is typically installed beneath a corner work surface. Good for storing pencils, pens and other small items.

Lateral File

Two drawer lateral files which fit under a work surface are typically used inside a cubicle only when the occupant has relatively large storage and filing requirements. If the filing space is not needed, they tend to steal valuable leg room, and thus are better suited to larger cubicles.

Tack Board

A useful accessory to tack frequently used pieces of paper in a readily available location above the work surface. Usually placed above the two "return" work surfaces in each cube. You can tack papers directly onto Haworth™ panels without a tack board, however the surface is not intended to support a considerable amount of paper weight, and eventually the fabric will become tattered.

Adjustable Keyboard Pad (AKP)

Used to support a computer keyboard. Provides more work surface space for the occupant, as well as facilitating ideal ergonomic adjustment of keyboard.
