Gispen TMNL is a modular desk system that has been specially designed for intensive use. TMNL is ideal for dynamic organisations that have high standards when it comes to a multifunctional and sustainable office furnishing. TMNL makes it easy for your employees to alternate between a seated and standing position; the tabletops are quickly and easily adjusted in height. The collection ranges from compact desks to communal workspaces, allowing you to create the ideal work environment for your organisation and its employees. 



The TMNL desk system offers a wide range of models and colour schemes. In addition to single and dual desks, the collection also includes 4-pack desks and front-end workstations.

Height adjustability

The Gispen TMNL collection has a number of options for adjusting the height of the desktop. You can opt for fixed height with manual height adjustment or flexible height with a hand crank or electrical adjustment. If you wish to switch between sitting and standing throughout the working day, you can opt for manual or electrical 2- or 3-step height adjustment. The 3-step height adjustment with hand crank is ideal for workstations without power supply or flexible-use desks.

Alternating positions is healthy

We are tied to our workstations because we need computers in order to carry out our jobs. What we need is to be able to alternate between a seated and standing position, which is one of the guiding principles of the TMNL desk. The adjustable tabletop is quickly set to the desired height, wheter employees want to focus on their task, stand behind their desk for a while, confer with a colleague, work on a project together or check their email. TMNL facilitates each and every one of these activities.

REVIVED tabletop

A REVIVED tabletop is an innovative, circular choice for an Gispen TMNL table or desk. It reduces the environmental impact whilst choosing a robust material with a long life-span.

Compact material has been widely used for tabletops in the past. Tabletops made of this material can last up to 30 years. In practice, they are replaced after 10 years on average and the material is lost.

Our Circular Hub takes in around 5,000 used Compact tabletops every year. These are refurbished with a new top layer by an external processor. The now REVIVED tabletops are ready for their next life cycle. This process leads to a carbon footprint reduction of about 95%. By repeating it, we retain the value over multiple life cycles.

"It is important to us that our furnishing partner shares our vision of sustainability ."

When we designed TMNL, we already took account of possible future returns and the reusability of the components and materials. Gispen takes responsiblity for the entire lifespan of its products. We will take back your TMNL when it has reached the end of its life, after we will give it a new function or refurbish it to brand new.


WIth a score of 76%, TMNL earns 4 stars on our circular design framework.


of TMNL can be recycled in the future.


The tabletops of TMNL consist of 100% circular materals.

A second lease of life

Waste is non-existent. This is the essence of the cradle-to-cradle principle (C2C). TMNL is a C2C-certified product, which the tabletop in this image proves. In a previous life it was actually a ceiling panel from a train carriage. The Intercity train it came from was in service from 1994 until 2019 and travelled a total of 5,760,000 kilometres during this period. Waste from the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch Railways) has become a resource for this TMNL dual workstation.
