“At First Office, we design solutions for the modern work style,” said Vanessa Hartke, brand director for First Office.
“And we believe that STAKS, our crossover casegoods collection, completes the modern workplace culture with its
scalability and built-in features that enhance collaboration and creativity.”


STAKS, by First Office, is a crossover casegoods collection. Designed to span from the private office to open plan workspaces, STAKS provides precise, customizable design with the power of a system and personality of a modern studio. The cabinet-based collection offers several surface options while built-in features create studio environments that stir conversations and ideas. Premium materials and surfaces bring the luxury of a private office into the open. STAKS offers multiple surface heights for layered working and storage areas, visually opening up the space for more comfort. Simple and effective UL listed electrical and data solutions allow easy access at the work surface where it’s needed most. Finally, an expanded palette of readily available textures, wood veneer finishes, paint and laminate colors blends well with millwork and interior architecture to reflect a harmonious design – making it easier for the designer to interpret a client’s specific need.

First Office introduces Agile, an ergonomic mesh back chair designed for personal fit and comfort. A high level of adjustability offers a custom fit, and breathable mesh circulates air for comfort. Agile is designed to scale in features and upholstery options to support open plan, active environments, collaborativeconferencing and private office settings.

Boost cylinder seating offers a modern solution to a collaborative work environment. Scaled for function within a smaller footprint, Boost can be pulled up to open plan workstations, lounge, or private office applications. Boost is available in two sizes, 19” and 24” wide, and is standard with glides or optional casters for mobility.

Focusing on the modern work style, First Office is a resource for contemporary office products ranging from free standing casegoods collections to expanded choices for lobby and lounge areas to streamlined swivel and guest seating. First Office is a division of OFS Brands, Inc., a family-owned corporation headquartered in Huntingburg, Indiana.
