The increase of paper usage and correspondence prompted the need for producing more complex and specialized desks. Steel desks were introduced to take heavier loads of paper and withstand the pounding dished out on typewriters. Refinements to those first desk forms were considerable through the 19th century. The new desks can be transformed into many different shapes and angles which is ideal for artists.
Moore Desk: Comes in two antique forms - The "Moore Office Queen" (a large desk that has a single large door to lock up the main work surface with drawers and nooks around it; and The "Moore Insurance Desk" (nearly twice as big as the "Office Queen" and also opens up by means of a single large door with its internal work surface sliding in and out). Cubicle Desk: An economical way of putting more desk workers in the same space without actually shrinking the size of their working surfaces. The cubicle walls are used to house papers and other items once left on the horizontal desktop surface.
