Shelter Desk by Joao Teixeira

Home > Winners > #123309


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Shelter

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desk

INSPIRATION:
While designing the Shelter desk our main inspiration was to develop something focused on both function and aesthetics. We wanted to come up with a solution that could improve the users productivity by enhancing his organization layouts through useful features like clean cable management and easy storage access.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design language finds its most unique feature in the rounded corner drawers giving the desks a differentiating aspect and stylish look. Also, all elements were designed to align seamlessly between each other allowing for an overall singular design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
While developing Shelter desk the goal was to keep its usability as simple as its looks. For instance, the possibility to pass cables trough the back access to the front drawers seamlessly and in a hidden way is a clear aspect of performing better than most common desks in the market. The interaction between product and user is self explanatory as for the access for each of the storages the design approach clearly indicates where and how to open.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2020 in Porto and finished March 2021 in Porto.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Desk production is based on traditional techniques, using common machinery to achieve precision like cnc and others. The desk is made using just two metallic hinges and a brass finish at the back as hardware as for the rest being natural wood. The rounded drawers are made using seams between joints in order to make the product more feasible and therefore affordable.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1480 mm x 800 mm x 760 mm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Motivated by lockdown, Shelter arises as a natural impulse to design something that would fit most home offices environments enhancing their productivity. Since we had to adapt to new normal overnight there was a big demand on this kind of solutions, especially when witnessing a big wave of change as companies were letting employees to work from home. The insight was to design a desk oriented towards the mental health fluctuation during the pandemic, providing serenity, hence the name Shelter.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging aspect, and also the most fun as in many other designs, was the process of fine tuning some manufacturing details finding a balance between feasibility, aesthetics and function.
