Ergonomic design leads to healthy roll top desk

Date Posted: 2005-03-18

Designing furniture is an art, and Leo Chen knows how to turn art into beauty.

In the furniture business since 1979, the Taiwan-born craftsman has found himself a winner with a stylish roll top computer desk that does all a desk is expected to do, and more. He designed the desk to be ergonomically correct, easy on the body during those long periods hunkered down with the computer.

His roll top has insets for a 21” monitor, with alignments geared to comfortable work sessions that last hours. The matching chair is also designed to protect both the spine and neck, creating an efficient work center without sacrificing anything.

Chen,73, began as a consultant to a U.S. group in Taiwan in 1957. He began furniture design early on, then moved on to his own business making teakwood furniture. From there, he added American oak, which he calls great for making furniture.

Life shifted from Taiwan to Okinawa in 1979, where he began he Leo Chen’s Furniture. His goal is “fine quality with hand crafted artisanship, famously branded with eronomically correct features.” He will custom design furniture for his customers, and says he’s still plenty of great ideas yet to pass from paper to wood.

Chen’s store is located on the Convention Center Bypass at 3-8-14 Iha. Open daily 10am – 6pm, directions can be obtained at 897-9063.
