What Is Office Benching?

Think of office benching as a cure for the common cubicle. Benching is an office solution that pairs together a desk and a file storage bench (and sometimes an additional file cabinet), offering an L-shaped style desk with extra storage and seating. We’ve designed a special collection of file storage benches that tuck underneath our Parsons desks for this modern office solution. It’s an ideal desk setup for open, collaborative workspaces; benching systems help define wall-less offices and create efficiency in large or small offices.
