Home Desk furniture
Scandinavian design mixed with Wall-E´s face ended in this kinda retro simple design.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The gentle welcoming and almost kneeling posture of the legs, the watchful eyed drawers, the sense of delicate balance and the lightweight and yet strong visual appeal give this desk a firm character.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The desk is just like any other desk when it comes to its use. However, instead of having two inner compartments (i mean the two front drawers), it has four. Two other compartments can be found over the top. Two lids located at the back corners give space to more objects, like netbooks, notebooks, tablets, etc, etc.
The whole desk is easily disassembled and stored in a thin rectangular box.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started and finished in April 2013 in Montevideo.

Scandinavian design research as my primary goal. Wanted to create a modern looking object, while at the same time keeping a classic nordic feeling to it.
I´ve always had a certain weakness and nostalgia for times past, possibly due to my passion for twentieth century history. For one of the few times in my life as a designer, I wanted to create a design in terms of what I call art. That means, the search for beauty above all things. Even though function is always present as a priority in my work, even in this one, I wanted to set myself apart from my classic philosophy of "Form follows function" as a fundamental rule.
I started playing with human shapes, trying to humanize and putting some emotions into it, always in a very controlled enviroment.
The marken desk is emotional, yes. But a very subtle, sober and always contained emotion, always keeping in mind it´s a scandinavian hommage.
Trying to pour in a personal and yet faithful interpretation of Scandinavian design.
