A lectern for a standing minister or reader is an essential part of the furnishings of a crematorium or chapel. It must be of an appropriate height or adjustable, strong, stable, and with sufficient desk width for large books or tablets. Every Treske lectern is the result of discussion with the client, so that each one also fits within its architectural context and fulfils practical needs. Lecterns are often designed to accommodate sound, lighting, and curtain controls so that the minister can run the service.
Specifically designed sound desks, often involving panelling to match the other furniture and concealed storage for the electronics, are designed for individual requirements.
