You need a new, modern, reception desk – but it needs to be affordable.

When moving to a new location, AltiGen Communications in San Jose, California, wanted to create a more welcoming Lobby at their new facility.  Having viewed some of the different Reception Desk Styles on Indoff – Silicon Valley Branch’s website (OfficeFurnitureSanJose.com), AltiGen contacted Indoff as a possible provider for a new reception desk.  They wanted something different that reflects their business success but wanted to get this look affordably.

We want it to look like this >>.

Key personnel at AltiGen forwarded photos of reception desks that appealed to their design desires.  Indoff – Silicon Valley Branch researched options and rough budgets and one design in particular stood out as very attractive and doable with a Bay Area Manufacturer, Action Laminates in Hayward.

Concept Development for a new Reception Desk

To manage costs, the reception desk was built with premium laminate surfaces.  The desk work surface and part of the front is a dark, textured finish.  The built-in white insert is gloss white high pressure laminate with color-core edging to make the block appear as one piece (no black line typically associated with laminate surfaces).  This is the same high quality High Pressure Laminate that is used in wall mounted and mobile white boards.

A custom built, standoff L-shaped clear glass transaction counter that floats beyond the white block onto part of the work surface finishes the off the reception desk.

The receptionist has convenient storage under the white block area and a 2-drawer, 1 file pedestal for additional storage.  Grommets have been added under the white block unit and on the side to allow convenient cable and power access to the work surface.

Now that the reception desk is in place, AltiGen is considering adding a companion storage cabinet next to the desk, by the wall, to cover power and data cables, add storage to the area, and add more work surface area for equipment.

If you are considering a upgraded or remodeled reception desk, rather than settling for “off-the-shelf” solutions, consider sending Indoff – Silicon Valley your ideas and inspirations and see how affordable and impressive a solution can be for you.
