Power & Function: For the Office in Your Pocket or Anywhere Else

Archdale, North Carolina, USA, January 9, 2018

Offices today are often much more a state of mind than always a physical space—although the physical embodiment of the office is still important too. Most of us are tied to our work … and play … through the devices we choose to carry with us wherever we go. Häfele America Co., one of America’s leading suppliers of furniture hardware components and charging solutions, understands and embraces this convergence with solutions that support today’s needs while preparing us all for the future ahead.

Our need for power to charge our devices, whether it be in the form of a simple USB port, grounded outlet or even GFCI outlet for wet areas has quickly risen to the level of a need, not a want. Häfele offers options which bring functionality and style to kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, home offices and more.

“Our 24-7 usage of devices means that charging solutions should be everywhere we are,” explains Steve Hubbard, category manager for Häfele. “But in addition to being present, they also need to either easily conceal themselves or be out of sight altogether so as not to disrupt anyone’s design vision.”

The all-new Docking Drawer Blade allows for a stylishly designed standard or GFCI outlet to be discreetly hidden within a drawer, no matter the room. This means there’s no countertop clutter, just fully charged devices and happy device owners. Häfele’s Hide-A-Dock outlets can be built into almost surface, mounted vertically or horizontally and reliably power phones, tablets, laptops or other devices.

Whether located in the home or a commercial building, offices have changed a great deal in recent years. Adjustable Table Systems from Häfele allow work surfaces in any room to electronically raise and lower based on your needs—be it a desktop, countertop or sideboard. Whether you’re sitting or standing this hardware will work at your level.

Häfele’s Pivot Table hardware allows you to essentially pull a desk out from another piece of furniture making it ideal for spaces which don’t often present as offices or multifunction areas which need to pull double duty. Be sure to round out the display with Häfele’s Electronic TV Lift which allows televisions and monitors to raise and lower out of casework, cabinetry or other spaces. No matter your space, its future is sure to be a functional one.
