Desk 117 was designed with "cable-caching" in mind. An embedded power strip provides electricity for devices as well as light. In addition to a large access panel in the rear, there are multiple trap doors for monitor cables, ethernet cables, speaker cables etc. A large working surface area was deliberately specified for this desk for those of us who still use paper. The secondary surface is deep enough to hold a 27-inch monitor/computer, not to mention stereo speakers on the side. The D117 Collection follows the concept on Desk 117 where the ethos of modern work life should encompass cable caching.
