Free-standing and autonomous, the Arras Spine supports multiple platforms.

Users can create any combination of open plan, public or private workspaces around it. Desks, tables and tools simply slide alongside. The communal channel then services these workspaces with all the essentials and makes them easy to access and use — power, technology, tools and accessories. When needs change, components can be reconfigured quickly and easily.

Spinal structure

Engineered to exacting standards, the 400mm wide unit is counterweighted to offer the assurance of robust stability. Available in two heights – 550mm and 720mm – Arras Spine is readily aligned to any combination of desks and accessories, enabling the user to configure the workspace for varying activities.

Power up

Everyday necessities, such as access to power, are made easier and more satisfying by thoughtful engineering that puts user experience first.

The Arras power channel features pivot wings that open and retract smoothly into a vertical pocket, returning to the closed position with a soft reassuring click.

Democratic power access

The Arras cable tray features generous provision for at least 160 lay-in CAT cables running the entire length of Arras Spine. Power and data lines are effectively segregated and shielded, and a choice of mounting plates caters for regional or universal power outlets. The generous vertical clearance within the channel also caters for even the largest adaptor.
