Desk Connector Panel

In-house design

Red Dot: Best of the Best

Well connected

Conferences and meetings are almost unimaginable these days without the use of contemporary digital media for documentation and visualisation. In order to power these devices in the conference room, the TA Sky Design desk connector panel follows a highly sophisticated design approach. Recessed into the tabletop and showcasing a silver powdered surface of highly elegant appearance, this box features all connections ever needed during a conference. The shape and form language of this desk connector panel is defined by chamfered edges and clear proportions, turning it into an aesthetic eye-catcher that blends in harmoniously with the interior of almost any room. The desk connector panel is opened via a functional and sophisticated magnetic catch that allows easy access to the power and data connectors from all four sides. The high sense of understatement of this desk connector panel is further enhanced by a black plexiglass plate on the inside. Equipped with a media control that offers a variety of functions, the TA Sky Design can be customised and is easily adaptable to individual user needs. Another highly consistent aspect of its design are blue backlit keys that give conference participants quick and easy access to the control functions even in dark rooms.

Statement by the jury

»The TA Sky Design by KOMTECH demonstrates how a classic design problem in office and conference rooms is solved by a simple looking box that is mounted into a desk and which can be customised to offer a variety of connections. Opening and closing its cover is most easy. The desk panel is available in either RAL colours or in brushed or anodised aluminium – a well-thought-out design with a high-quality appeal, commented the jury.«
