Lacasse NEX Desk Review

Furniture Reviews

The Lacasse NEX desk has a bold contemporary look and modern functionality to support today’s flexible and collaborative workplaces. Inspired by the kitchen and European office furniture markets, the NEX desk features clean lines, uneven surfaces and a variety of storage options.

The NEX collection is an award-winning product line from Groupe Lacasse, a Quebec-based furniture manufacturer known for the design, durability and reliability of its products. Groupe Lacasse is the primary supplier of laminate casegoods at Office Interiors and a leader in the North American laminate office furniture industry.

Customers choose the Lacasse NEX desk for its unique aesthetic and its versatility but is it a good fit for your office space? To help you decide, we’ve put together this review about what the NEX desk has to offer.


Supports Varied Workspaces

Modesty panels and soft-close drawers create quiet personal spaces, while modular surfaces, storage units and panels can be combined to create a wide range of collaborative meeting spaces. This makes the NEX desk suitable for both closed office and collaborative environments.

Offers Built-in Height Adjustment

NEX desks are available in fixed-height or height-adjustable models. NEX is one of the few collections that offer height adjustability built into the desk itself. So, there’s no need for an additional table surface in the room to allow employees to alternate between sitting and standing while they work.

Pros and Cons of the Lacasse NEX Desk


The most significant advantage of the Lacasse NEX desk is its unique and attractive design. If you want to make a statement with your office furniture, NEX is the way to go. Its smooth lines and contemporary style will give your space a bold, modern look.

Another advantage is its versatility. Whether you’re looking for a single pedestal desk or a full office suite with overhead storage and a height-adjustable surface, you’ll find the components you need for virtually any configuration.


One thing to consider is cost. NEX is on the higher end of Lacasse’s product price list yet is similar to other collections in quality and construction. Customers who love the NEX are not put off by paying a premium for the superior aesthetic design.

Another potential downside is that because of its uneven lines, overlapping surfaces and a long list of storage choices, it’s easy to make a mistake when ordering the NEX’s components. It’s essential to use CAD drawings of your office design plan, so you can be sure everything lines up and fits appropriately in the space.
