There is a file cabinet, bruised and battered, that sits in the collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. In it were once the files of Daniel Ellsberg, America’s most notorious whistle blower before our fair Snowden. Drab beige, paint chipping, it belied the import of its contents. Heartwork’s Active Duty Lateral Files have been designed to honor the letter and legal files contained within, offering safe haven and deep storage with two-, three-, or four-lockable drawers.
Far from the eyesores of yore, this modern design has the clean lines and rich colors befitting an agency of record or downtown gallery, plus smooth-gliding drawers silent enough for a city library. Not so sweet is the commercial-quality, 18/20-gauge all-steel construction, which can readily support a perching visitor, printer, or potted plant, if that’s what you’re into. Made well in the USA.
