The Ligni Family  – Wooden Office Furniture

Wooden Office Furniture – The Ligni Range by Sven Christiansen

Meeting Booth

ScreenD Meeting Booth – Elegant and slim line, ScreenD offers a flexible solution for all meeting and breakout spaces. High-back variants combine to create a combination of privacy and open sight lines.

Meeting Pod

As all wooden office furniture is constructed using the same method and materials means you’re able to create an office space both you and your employees will feel comfortable in.

The sides of the legs are faced in any of a wide choice of veneers and laminates. In combination with the extensive choice of top and edge finishes, this provides the designer and specifier with an exceptional palette of colours, patterns and textures.


Whilst wooden desks are no new feat, what is new is the engineering and detail that features in this modern office furniture.


A few word from Peter Milner (Sven Product Designer) 

“I started working on designs for what became our Ligni product line back in September 2016. Aware of a growing trend towards a more domestic look and feel in the office and attracted by the possibilities offered by an extensive use of ply in construction – now that ply is widely accepted as an attractive as well as a functional material.”


Peter describes how he was inspired on the construction method whilst watching Channel 4’s Grand Designs. In which he came to the realisation that glue-lam beams were actually more rigid than steel beams, perfect for wooden office furniture.



Have it like you want it – if you fancy contrasting the colours on your Ligni furniture then let us know! You can have any variation of colours available from Sven.


With the use of thin 10mm MFC tops and the clean cut ply finish you can create a modern office space complete with wooden desks, meeting tables, desks, storage and meeting booths that all complement each other, just like in the image above!
