20 Super Smart Contemporary Desks

Minimalist Desks

Clean-lined, efficiency and pared-down good looks have come to define the modern office, replacing bulky, oversized furniture with bells and whistles on display. Contemporary desks from Blu Dot, BDI and Gus*, among others, make the point handsomely, with innovative designs—like the Blu Dot Stash Desk and the Gus* Gander Desk, above, which combine an inspired use of materials and finishes with smartly calibrated work surfaces and storage solutions. The BDI Modica Desk may be generously sized for the larger office, but a refined silhouette and subtle storage space make for a supremely understated modern desk.
