Honestly? I think it's a homage to the fact the TOS Enterprise bridge was 'off center'. If you look at any of the blueprints, the turbolift is actually the back side of the bridge, and the captain's chair and navigation/helm/viewscreen are off center to the left. The 'Standard' bridge mimics that, but is also oval, thereby actually showing the fact it's off center, where the TOS Bridge was circular.
