Tired of getting up from your workstation and carrying your laptop from one place to another? Consider a mobile desk. Need more floor space? Try nesting desks, also referred to as stackable desks. Expand your productivity and office space and bring a new level of flexibility and efficiency to your office environment with mobile and nesting desks.
Mobile desks meet the ongoing demands for mobility with a minimalist appearance. They come in a variety of styles to fit the office needs of every industry. Nesting desks can be used for multiple functions and both types of surfaces reduce the footprint of tables and traditional desks.
They’re some of the trending items for today’s workplace.
Types of Mobile and Nesting Desks
We know about height-adjustable desks and how they move so the user is comfortable and can set the height to the individual’s proper posture. Mobile desks go a bit further, literally.

A durable stand and surface for a laptop make them lightweight and since they’re equipped with casters, they’re easy to roll.
Nesting desks are easy to stack and reduce the space that tables and traditional desks often take up. Plus, some function as whiteboards where you can scrawl ideas, flip the top to show what you’re working on, and use the table again as a flat surface.

When you’re done, “nest” them together so they’re out of the way. Transporting is easy since they come with a cart like the durable Via Seating Splash Stackable Table.
What else can you do with mobile and nesting desks?
A lot more.
Uses for Mobile and Nesting Desks
Mobile desks are excellent to use for health professionals and other offices where data needs sharing around a conversation. Instructors can also use them, wheeling a laptop or other screens around a conference or training room.
Nesting desks can be used near workstations where a few colleagues gather to collaborate. They can also be used in lounge or breakout areas in addition to training rooms. If floor space is being optimized in your office, then use nesting desks as needed.
You may have a few desks with the tops stacked vertically and neatly against a wall. During a huddle, you may only need one desk. However, if others come into the area where you’re doing a training session, then the additional desks are available as needed.
Nesting desks with writeable surfaces are excellent for professionals like those in engineering firms or robotics companies where spur-of-the-moment ideas are best expressed with quickly drawn diagrams.
What if you plan to move locations soon and you’re already relocating your equipment?
You wouldn’t want a room filled with tables.
Mobile and nesting desks are useful for startup companies and established companies that are changing facilities since they fit with professional décor and don’t look like temporary solutions.
In a spacious executive office, mobile desks can comfortably accommodate laptops or, if you prefer, a pad of paper and pen to take notes during meetings. Nesting desks can easily be pulled out from against the walls.
The finishes are attractive and fit with various office design schemes.
Breakrooms or lounges are also areas suitable for stackable desks where space is at a premium.
Trending Space-Saving Solutions
Using space wisely is important for offices with hybrid work arrangements where employees may either work remotely or work in the corporate setting. But they’re also important for companies with a large in-house staff.
Bulky-looking file cabinets are another item that can take up floor space. Turn to variations on mobile and nesting desks to solve the issue.

Use attractive bookcases as another storage option. They work well as space dividers in open offices or look nice up against permanent walls. The OFS Hitch Shelf and Storage offers a contemporary look while the Deskmakers Catalina Cubbies is more traditional.
