DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Deskable

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desk

INSPIRATION:
The majority of single-person are living in the small studio-type of residential space usually prioritize the efficient use and convenience of space. Since it is burdensome to set up a separate dining table, they often eat at a floor dining table or at a desk. Due to the prolonged COVID-19 outbreak, the rise of working from home, and the advent of the contactless era, most of the works can be done at the desk in the room, but the desk has become messier.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A desk for a Single-Person Household Most single-person households eat their meals at a floor table or at a desk due to the narrow residential space. When two kinds of furniture are combined, it will have more than two functional purposes in only one piece of furniture. Moreover, it can also save space. Deskable is a desk that combines the desk and the table. Users can eat their meals after extending the top plate by pulling the drawer in front of the desk and using it as a table.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Drawer and Storage Space Deskable came from the combination of the words desk and table, is a dining table and desk where the user can eat their meals after opening a drawer and extending the desk top. The extended top reduces any unnecessary movements before and after meals and can be used for other purposes as well.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in Korea in March 2021 and was completed in Korea in November 2021.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Eating at the desk has the same strong negative perspective as gobbling up a meal in a busy daily life. However, this can be seen as a new paradigm for the desks caused by the new trend in society. Deskable came from the combination of the words desk and table, is a dining table and desk where the user can eat their meals after opening a drawer and extending the desk top. The extended top plate reduces any unnecessary movements before and after the meals and can be used for other purposes as well. Material Oak plywood ABS plastic(metallic coated) Tempered glass Stainless steel

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
W1200 mm x D600 mm x H770 mm

TAGS:
Desk, Table

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The drawer might fall out if the user opens it excessively, so a stopper is required. Therefore, most drawers are equipped with rails to prevent the drawer from opening excessively. However, unlike other drawers, a problem may occur in the case of Deskable that when rails are installed on both sides of the drawer, there is a gap between the three drawers when the drawer is opened, which could cause utensils or even foods to fall between the gaps.

CHALLENGE:
There was some trial and error when designing the storage space.At first, it was intended to be acrylic, but it was bent because of its weight and later changed to tempered glass. The top of Deskable's drawer is carved with a line. It implicitly conveys the meaning that the line should not cross certain boundaries. Most importantly, it prevents the users from excessively opening the top of the drawer. Not only can accidents be prevented by simply adding the line, but it can be an efficient method as well since a separate stopper is no longer needed.
