The word “desk” originated from the Modern Latin word desca “table to write on”, from the mid 14th century. Until the late 1980s, desks remained a place for paperwork and “business machines”, but the personal computer was taking hold in a big way.
Early in the 2000s, office workers found that their furniture made it hard to show the contents of a computer screen to guests or co-workers. Manufacturers have responded to this issue by creating “forward facing” desks where computer monitors are placed on the front of the “U-shape” workstation. This promotes a clearer sight-line to greet colleagues and allows for common viewing of information displayed on a screen.
