Contemporary home offices are becoming more and more popular these days. If you are looking for a simple, yet smart desk, Landa will definitely catch your eye. Landa is the perfect minimalistic office desk, that not only hides the wires and the electric cables, but it also comes equipped with several compartments for storage. From paperclips to documents, agenda or post-its, this desk has special “pockets” for all your “office stuff”. The idea that inspired the French designer, Samuel Accoceberry, is quite simple: keep everything as organised as possible.
The solid oak desk boasts a line of red brush, that holds the wires in an organised way. Moreover, the desk opens, revealing the “secret” storage spaces. You can deposit everything that eases your workflow, in a discreet manner. Its simple clean lines make Landa desk a practical solution, no matter the office décor. The project was first showed by Alki.
The Stacked system was designed by Julien De Smedt for Muuto. Held together using small clips, Stacked comprises modules of varied sizes that are arranged to create many different storage solutions and set-ups. The 835 Infinito modular bookcase was designed by Franco Albini for Cassina. Comprised of vertical elements, containers with doors or flaps and shelves in two depths, Infinito is an expression of possibilities that are designed to bring order to a space. Randomito from MDF Italia is a single unit hanging bookcase (available in white, orange, sand and green) that can also be turned upside down. Combining units provides a larger configuration with a striking visual impact.
The best modular shelving systems will encourage individual expression and personal style. An investment in both design and practicality, they are something that we choose to live with (design is arguably always a choice). Famed industrial designer Dieter Rams once remarked: “I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product. A poorly-designed product is not only uglier than a well-designed one but it is of less value and use. Worst of all it might be intrusive.” This quote, from a speech on ‘Design by Vitsœ’ presented by Rams in New York, 1976, remains pertinent today.
