We received photos and information about Woven, an original desk designed by Bram Vanderbeke. Here is the press release we were sent: “A personal workspace creates a higher concentration at work, but reduces social contact. When these two principles are combined in a functional way, we create a workplace that allows people to work with concentration, but without losing contact with their surroundings. Woven is a desk, or rather an exceptional workplace. A desk that won its place in space, with a strong object value. But it is also a functional workspace that allows one to stay in touch with the environment. On the basis of sketches, models and experimenting in the atelier, I’m looking for an attractive and functional design. In the end I get a piece of furniture where I bend eight wooden slats in a way around a worktop and weave them with each other. I provide slots between the wooden slats, which makes any contact with the environment possible. The way the strips are woven, emphasizes the place value of the desk and makes a solid form”. Find this workspace idea appealing?
Hobbyists often have lots of stuff that require lots of storage room that’s easy to access and keep tidy. Whether it’s sewing, crafting, gardening, or something else — organization is key, and an armoire can really be the perfect solution for it. You might be surprised to find how versatile armoires can be to use in place of other pieces of furniture. Check out this desk from Apartment Therapy! Put it out of sight by closing the doors when you’re all done working. If you’re expecting, an armoire can be a clever use of a changing table. And when baby is all grown up, you’ll have the opportunity to find another use for your armoire. An old armoire works just as well as a regular bookcase — if not better for the unique look you get.
