Can Freestanding Furniture Deliver Full Performance?

Ellipse provides the flexibility of freestanding furniture with the performance you expect from a complete office system.

  • Ellipse desks can be used alone or linked in a variety of configurations.
  • Overhead cabinets, cable management, and privacy screens make it a total solution for private offices and open-plan.
  • The ability to easily install and re-configure Ellipse makes it an excellent choice when you want a simple solution for diverse needs.

The Classroom

The Classroom

Learning is about Exploration, Potential, Looking Forward. Your Classroom Welcomes the Possibilities.

The flexibility of Ellipse translates perfectly to corporate training rooms and educational classrooms. Side-by-side connections, ninety degree connections and junction tops allow you to create a range of classroom configurations, from linear rows to U-shapes. With height adjustable desks, each row can be adjusted in increments, creating a tiered effect without a tiered floor. Classroom, study area, or a place to check e-mail between classes — Ellipse stands up to heavy use — yes, even from college students.

Perfect for Those Who Thrive on Change (And Making Change Easier for Those Who Don’t)

In an open plan environment, Ellipse can be used with or without a panel system. Either way, it makes for easy reconfiguration without disrupting surrounding workstations, thanks to its Internode modular power system.

  • Modular connections are easy to access, and snap together and apart.
  • Crank height-adjustable desks enhance your ergonomic comfort by allowing you to vary your posture from sitting to standing.
  • And grommets and convenience receptacles give easy access to plug in technology from the worksurface.
