Call up all the professions that would be using an office desk anyhow. You see that pretty much all the professions and industry sectors will have use for an office desk. Usually, it is only the manager or supervisor within the industrial sectors that would have use for a desk. All other workers are on their feet on the shop floor. School teachers and college professors need their desks while their students place themselves behind the lecture hall counters provided with barely enough elbow room.
This is curious when you consider that there is still much reading and writing to be done. And today, students are allowed to bring their laptops into the lecture halls, and for that, space must be provided. Fortunately, in most cases, provision has been made. All medical doctors need an office desk. All men and women in the professions will have their own offices to work from and in these will be their desks.
Pretty much all office workers will be working from a solid desk. If it is not a desk as such, it will be a workstation shared with others. The question is always asked; is there enough elbow and leg room. If the manager entrusted with the layout of the office floor has done his homework, yes, there is. More than likely, l shaped office desks will be utilized. The purpose behind the design of such desks is to provide as much workspace room as possible.
Using the L shape, this can be done, even when working with a relatively small desk. A small desk is still a practical idea when floor space is minimal. But it only becomes practical use when the mentioned L shape has been employed.
