This study aims at the development of office desk system considering variability to realize various typed desks. The opened and variable workstation for good communications and team work between team members has maintained since 2000. Recently, owing to the growth of knowledge industry and the promotion of office environment, the differentiated workstations are being organized by the type of business. Such a trend reflects that users are requiring a variety of office desks. Therefore, this study focuses on systematic variability to solve a variety of workstations required for office space. The object of this study also includes the basic typed-desks and the other desks realized from variable work. This study also aims at the practical variability to feel all the users and manufactures by realizing 6 kinds of desks with the smallest parts. Consequently, it verifies that the systematization can get a designed unity, it is easy for users or manufactures to assemble and disassemble the systematized desks in office space, where the users can often change the workstation with their compatible parts. It is also thought interior designers should carry out a variety of studies on system workstaion, based on the advanced variability.
