Who Invented the Corner Desk?

Who invented the computer desk? Don't know, well neither do I. But with a little thought, I believe I have come up with a fairly accurate evolution of this piece of office furniture. So, let me know what you think, especially if you have a corner computer desk!

Well, if you ever want to stump Google, then this is a good question to ask. I typed in "who invented the corner desk," and the number one return on page one came from the Rabbi's Corner: Did you ever wonder who invented Sunday School? Talk about way off mark! But just in case you are interested, Sunday school for Jewish students was invented in 1838 in Philadelphia by a woman named Rebecca Gratz. I am not Jewish, but at least I now know who to thank for some of my childhood education (and adult since I still attend some form of Sunday school today, currently as a teacher). I wonder if Rebecca Gratz had a corner desk?

Probably not, because the original desk was designed to sit in the middle of a room, or at the front of the room if you were a teacher. Lets take a look at an old style office, often still found today if you are an executive. Someone enters the office, and your desk is in the middle, or back quarter of the room facing the door. In front of your desk (remember, you sit behind the desk) are a couple of chairs for friends or clients (sometimes your clients are your friends). Behind you are some book shelves, a window to one side, and perhaps under the window is a small side bar. Your walls are also graced with classy art, perhaps a portrait of a distinguished great grandfather in his military uniform. You have a safe concealed somewhere, or at least a few hidden compartments in your desk. Your office is finished in rich woods and leather, and is your favorite room in the house.

If you are a teacher, your light pine desk is not so fancy, but still sits at the front of the classroom with your switch and an apple on top.

Now, I do not think that the corner desk evolved from this standard style of antique desk. No, I think it more likely evolved from a roll top desk. Why, do you ask? After all, they do not look anything alike. Remember, this is pure speculation of thought, but who used a roll top desk? Most often a book keeper, or other worker who had a boss. With a roll top desk, you focus on your work at hand, and when you look up, do you see a lush office or view from a window? No, you see little cubby holes and slots that hold more work or are a reminder of the work that you are doing.

Sounds a lot like a corner desk, doesn't it? With the advent of the age of technology and computers, a computer just doesn't fit in a roll top desk very well. Think about it, a corner desk is very functional, as a matter of fact, most modular furniture, that are often in cubicles, are corner desks molded to fit into a small work space. With a corner desk, you sit and look at your computer screen, or books, or items stashed away in small cubbies and shelves on the "hutch". With a corner desk, you do not have lush leather chairs for your clients, or nice art, or a large window to enjoy the view.

A corner desk is practical and functional, and designed for the worker, just like the roll top desk. So, though I cannot say for sure what the history is of the corner desk, I can speculate, and believe that I have come up with a fairly good theory on the evolution of the corner desk.
