For academic, professional, or household tasks like reading, writing, or utilising technology like a computer, a desk or bureau is a piece of furniture having a flat table-style work surface that is used in a school, workplace, home, or places similar to these. To hold things like office supplies and papers, desks frequently contain one or more drawers, compartments, or pigeonholes. Although materials like glass are occasionally encountered, desks are typically built of wood or metal.

There are several desks that resemble tables, but unlike most typical tables, often just one side of a desk can be used for seating (there are few exceptions, such as a partners desk). Some desks don’t take the shape of a table; for example, an armoire desk is a workstation that is housed inside of a big cabinet that resembles a wardrobe, and a portable desk is light enough to be held in one’s lap. A desk needs to be strong because so many people lean on it while using it. Most of the time, people sit at workstations on separate chairs or built-in chairs (e.g., in some school desks). Some people utilise standing desks so they can work while standing.

The mid-14th century Modern Latin term desca, meaning “table to write on,” is where the word “desk” first appeared. It is a variation of the Latin discus, which means “dish” or “disc,” and the Old Italian desco, “table.” Since 1797, the word “desk” has been used figuratively. The terms bureau, counter, davenport, escritoire, lectern, reading stand, rolltop desk, school desk, workstation, or writing desk are also used to describe desks.

There is no concrete evidence, but it does not appear that desk-style furniture was utilised in classical antiquity or in other early centres of literary civilisation in the Middle East or Far East. The first furniture that appears to have been built and designed for reading and writing may be seen in mediaeval pictures.

Since any book or other document had to be duplicated by hand, any reader could possibly be a writer, publisher, or both. The desks were made with hooks and slots for writing instruments and bookmarks. Desks of the era typically had huge constructions since manuscript volumes might occasionally be large and heavy.
