As a leading designer and manufacturer of office furniture, The HON Company offers a diverse product portfolio to meet the needs of our customers.  Meet Manage®, our basyx by HON® desk series that does just that.  Let’s explore a few reasons why Manage is a must have for your workspace.

Manage

Modern Look and Application

Creating a solution that keeps up with the evolution of today’s office is something we had in mind with the creation of Manage. This series offers a clean and contemporary look that conforms to the open-concept workplace and fosters collaboration. As office spaces continue to evolve, users will be able to enjoy the same functionality with a smaller footprint and more opportunities to interact with those around them.

Versatility

As office design trends change, the need increases for furniture that can work in a variety of spaces. Manage offers the ability to maintain a consistent aesthetic throughout a variety of work environments, while allowing employees to create the style that works best for them.  It fits in open plan, semi-private and private office environments.  The image below demonstrates how Manage can serve many different types of spaces while creating a consistent look.

Practicality and Convenience

Inspired by the needs of small businesses, Manage is an affordable collection that’s easy to reconfigure as business needs change. With a condensed number of ready-to-assemble components, it’s simple to install. In the image above you can see how the worksurface extends into the storage and the open design allows for storage below working level, thus optimizing space and supporting a smaller footprint. For this reason, Manage is an especially appealing solution for organizations with limited real estate who want to maximize their investment.

With an ideal combination of style, versatility and affordability, Manage is ready to handle today’s fast-paced business demands.  How has Manage been successful for you?
