Orbis Adapt by Zenith

Orbis Adapt by Zenith has been developed to address two common frustrations in workplaces today: the need for spatial flexibility and freedom from cable clutter. 

The modern workspace sees a daily flux of activity. Hybrid and on-the-go workers, online meetings, and manifold tasks require flexible furniture that keeps up.

Nowhere is the need for adaptability more apparent than desking, where work modes and activities can shift throughout the day. Orbis Adapt has been thoughtfully designed, integrating a confluence of advanced electronics to answer this challenge.


Designed in partnership with soft wiring company OE Elsafe, Orbis Adapt is a world-first desking solution by Zenith Design Studio

Each desk is suitable for a single occupant and features electric height adjustment, laptop and mobile device charging, privacy screening, mobility, and a folding worktop. The integrated pull handle and lightweight design enable it to be easily relocated, reconfigured, or stored away.

What really sets Orbis Adapt apart, however, is the unique wiring loom. 

The solution features a highly resolved power delivery system, including a range of electronic and component-based innovations.

At the centre of the system is a purpose-designed commercial workspace battery that will reliably power the height adjustment mechanism, the monitor and all peripheral devices for a full day or more from a single charge.

This charging feature is made possible through the integration of one, two or three batteries depending on the amount of power being consumed by the occupant. For example, two batteries are recommended to sustain 11.5 hours of use in a typical workplace scenario.



Charging towards sustainability

As a passionate advocate for sustainability, Zenith believes its furniture can play a pivotal role in the way energy is consumed. 

Orbis Adapt is a great example of how furniture can help achieve environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. A possible scenario could see low voltage buildings sustain their own energy needs by harvesting and storing energy, with the furniture playing a more dynamic role in how the energy is then delivered.

Orbis Adapt also incorporates a number of non-electrical features including the safety-minded anti-pinch spacer screen and the daisy chain charging for efficiency of space.

New ways of working

The battery-enabled version of Orbis Adapt empowers users to change their workspace according to their spatial needs throughout the day, allowing untethered connectivity.

True to its namesake, Orbis Adapt has been designed to evolve and adjust, with the capacity to be retrofitted with up to three battery packs to cater to all power consumption requirements. With the end user firmly in mind, the new Orbis Adapt upends traditional ideas of the ‘work desk’, empowering adaptability through cable-free movement.
