Ahrend 500. (Office Furniture: Product Review).

Ahrend's new desk and table range, 500, designed by Wijtse Rodenburg following a concept by IDEArchitects (502), is made for adaptation as offices change, both over the year and during the day. Easy to erect and reconfigure, some of the tables are provided with castors so that they can be shifted to create meeting places, group workspaces and individual desks. Working heights of tables on castors can be varied between 680mm and 960mm, while the heights of static 'seated/standing' desks can be adjusted between 620mm and 1220mm.

The 500 range is ideal for hot desking. An electronic memory is available with electrically adjustable tables so that four people can each store four of their different height preferences. Otherwise, height adjustment is manual.

Cable boxes control wiring. Optional organization rails allow accessories like flat screens and lamps, and trays and partitions to be chosen by individual users. There is a wide range of worktop shapes and finishes.
