Centric Workstation

With a minimum understructure and discretely integrated ergonomics, Centric raises the bar in benching work environments.

Centric desks are available in both fixed height and three different height adjustable options. Centric facilitates sit possibilities from 610-900mm, or sit and stand possibilities from 700-1050mm. Height adjustment options come in technician, manual user or electronic adjustment.

Centric desks are able to be abutted back to back, with a connecting bridge completing a unique H-leg frame. This negates the need for supporting feet and less clutter beneath the desk for greater usable storage space and a clean, open design. Unique to the system is the ability to vary desk heights independently along a single plane.

Centric Workstation

Centric is available in rectilinear clusters, 120° three-way workstations,90° two-way workstations, or 90° four-way workstations – a layout to suit any office space and design. Standard worktops are customisable, able to be specified at 25mm or 33mm thick with square or soft rounded corners. Custom edge profiles and finishes are also available upon request, offering vast design possibilities.

Centric Workstation

A number of accessories are available to complement Centric, including the Scope Accessory Rail, discreet cable reticulation, power and data modules, built-in privacy screens and mobile pedestals.

In 2004, a year before Centric was released, Peter Schiavello observed a shift in desking trends – workbenches were becoming more and more popular and were overcoming their predecessor, the workstation. “Classic workstations were structured so that people were sitting on single desks,” he says. “The beauty of the workbench, however, is that it’s much more flexible in terms of the way people collaborate. You can work anywhere along the length of bench. You can work solo or with a group; there is a lot more fluidity.”

While workstations were being left in the dust, they still had one firm advantage over workbenches – their height adjustability. In conceiving Centric, Peter and the Schiavello team asked the question; What is it that stops people from working anywhere on a workstation? Peter explains, “Typically, it was a leg or a foot. That is what defined the end of the bench and got in the way. So we came up with the idea of having a bridge for back-to-back workstations, therefore eliminating the foot altogether.”

What resulted was Centric, a benching system that sits back to back with a bridge creating the ‘H’ – one of the first of its kind in the world. Centric is a work surface that provides the benefits of a workbench (a continual work surface) as well as the height adjustability of a workstation. In addition, the clamp-on nature of Centric’s bridge means that any desk can be converted from a freestanding table to a bridged table simply by removing the foot and adding the bridge.

Today led by Anton Schiavello, the Schiavello Studio is made up of a number of talented product designers and engineers. The studio has been the driving force behind a number of Schiavello’s most successful designs, including Starlight in 2006 – a product still sold today, Soft Boundary in 2009, the One Plane desking system in 2010, Krossi in 2015 and the Cache caddy storage in 2016.
