Desks shouldn’t have to be one-size-fits-all. HON recognized the need for a solution with greater customization that would allow users to create spaces to support their individual work styles.

The word “concinnity” is defined as the skillful and harmonious arrangement or fitting together of the different parts of something, which makes it the perfect name for our newest and largest laminate desk line. Meet Concinnity – Upscale Design.  Everyday Practicality.  Offering a coordinated suite of laminate desk and storage components that let you create a custom look without custom products, there are endless reasons why we are so excited about our newest solution!

NEW! HON Concinnity Laminate Desks

PERFECT FOR ANYONE.  BUT TOTALLY YOU.
With office layouts, one size never fits all.  In order to be productive, you need a workspace designed around you!  Worksurfaces configured around your work style.  Storage that puts everything right where you not only need it, but want it.  Accessories that help you stay organized but put your personality on display.  Concinnity allows individual work styles to dictate the surroundings, not the other way around.

PRIVATE YET ACCESSIBLE.
Focused one minute – an unscheduled meeting the next.  Even when you plan your day, it’s bound to change.  Concinnity helps executives get organized, stay focused and quickly connect.  Squeeze more vertical storage into a smaller footprint with taller cabinets.  Convert a private office into a personal meeting space with mobile tables.  Concinnity helps you stay prepared for whatever comes next.

WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
As we all know, most work doesn’t happen behind closed doors. It’s happening out in the open.  Concinnity’s versatile layout, design and storage options help small groups team up while allowing worker bees to remain focused.  Turn open layouts into neighborhoods.  Give nomads a place to call home.  Allow workstation warriors to enjoy a healthy standing-height alternative.  Concinnity supports the needs of many, while indulging every individual.

KEEP YOUR OPTIONS OPEN.
Concinnity gives you exactly what you have been craving – TOTAL CUSTOMIZATION! Modular storage pedestals create a place for everything.  A variety of worksurface shapes and sizes perfectly fit the way you work.  Modesty panels define boundaries and increase privacy.  Don’t be afraid to express yourself!

MORE CONTROL.  LESS CHAOS.
Jackets.  Family Photos. Work Bag.  We all have things we need stowed away or proudly displayed.  Concinnity allows you to totally personalize your environment.  Open and closed units let you decide what gets displayed.  Mix and match rich laminates and sleek metallic finishes.  The sky’s the limit! Concinnity doesn’t just help you rethink your storage – it totally defines it!

TIME TO ACCESSORIZE.
It’s always good to have options.  I mean, who doesn’t love options? Concinnity provides the opportunity to create a space that’s totally you.  Personalize your selection with a mix of rich hardwood laminate, metal and frosted accents.  Add distinctive handles and organizational tools.  Route power right where it’s needed.  When you get to make all the decisions, you get exactly what you want and we wouldn’t want it any other way!

HON's Concinnity desk and storage is customizable

See? We weren’t exaggerating! These are just a few of the reasons why we are so excited about our newest laminate desk line.  Concinnity sets the bar high for both modern and traditional spaces and brings a unified aesthetic throughout the entire office.  Oh, and let’s not forget, it’s backed by the HON’s Full Lifetime Warranty!

Okay…so…last month this column made a bold assertion regarding relationships and written warranties. It was even suggested that our readers consider modifying the HON Full Lifetime Warranty into a valentine card.

Well, if one does not follow one’s own advice, one should not be giving advice at all. So…this Blogger followed his own recommendations, and created what turned out to be a mantle piece, mounted right above the ol’ flat screen, for guests to view and contemplate.

Admittedly, one did not cut out the Warranty from the front page of the Pricer (which would amount to defacing Company Property). Instead, one extracted the words out of the PDF and pasted them in a nice PowerPoint auto-shape. Not quite able to fit the words to a heart, a banner was selected. The local card store provided the lacey laser cut background (MOST EXPENSIVE ONE IN THE STORE).

And voila, perhaps the fondest expression of personal commitment since a Shakespearean sonnet (and more readable to boot)! I trust you’ll find the transcription inspiring. My wife certainly did…

This week I had 7 calls in to my local Internet provider, trying to get my new home wireless network to actually work on the net. After loading my 18-digit network key about 14 times, my helpdesk person asked me, “How old is that computer?” We looked it up and discovered that it’s 10 years old. He explained that the working life of a modern laptop used to be 7 years. Then it was lowered to 4.5 years. Now, he tells me, it’s 3. So…it was all my fault.

So…we pay several hundred dollars, for features we (by “we” I mean “mid-lifers”) don’t use…and an operating system that doesn’t work as well as the last one, and apps that crash…with the assurance that in 3 frenetic years it will be ready for recycling! Three years!! Please!! My grandma had the same refrigerator for 40! The average car on the road is just over 10!

On the other end of the spectrum, I sit at home at a HON 11600 Series “shell” desk which I installed myself in 1995 (and which we discontinued in 2008) and it’s doing JUST FINE…thank you very much.

Which brings me (finally) to the point of this colorful rambling narrative, The HON Full Lifetime Warranty.  And the only way I can actually get there is by way of Korea. Anybody here ever heard of Hyundai? If you were out of middle school in the early 90s, you remember the first Sonata. It was kind of plain, had a lot of features for the money, and the HON INDUSTRIES Credit Union had one for sale in the parking lot. It looked a lot better than my rusted out ’88 Mercury Sable (which wasn’t saying much) and the price was do-able for a family of 6. So I looked it up in Consumer Reports. It flunked royally. Seems like the oil pump or something was totally unreliable.
