Habitus loves… Desks

It’s time to get down to work. But not without the appropriate design hunter equipment of course! Why not study 8 of our favourite desks from the world of design.

 

Kink

 


Designed by: 

Earl Pinto

Why we love it: Out of the ordinary. The Kink desk is nothing if not quirky, like a desk spliced with a lamp. It is beautiful in American maple with built-in light fitting.

Designed by: 

 Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra

Why we love it: This simple desk is like a very basic workbench, with beautiful metal legs (with different colour options) and lacquered timber surface. We love its no fuss appearance and quality.

Space Furniture

Writing Desk

title 

 

Designed by: Michael Young for Established & Sons

Why we love it: Colourful, playful yet elegant and perfectly formed – this desk by Michael Young is made to hide away in. A built-in light under the ‘roof’ will help you burn the creative midnight oil.

Living Edge

 

LORCA Desk

title 


Designed by: 


Abas Design Group

Why we love it: Lorca is a strong architectural statement – with its dynamic geometry comes a certainty. You could do serious business at this desk in serious style.

Where you can get it:

KE-ZU

Utility Table

title 

 

Designed by: 

Owen & Vokes

Why we love it: This collaboration between Owen & Vokes and Small Australian Projects is a larger desk for those with a bit more room, but the detailing is perfect – such as the corner detailing where legs meet the tabletop. The 2 pieces can be combined as a large dining table or used separately as desk and table.

Airia Desk

title 


Designed by: 

 Kaiju Studios

Why we love it: This desk is so many eras melded into one – and it works.  Modern elegance with a touch of old-world charm, the walnut surface works brilliantly with the cast-aluminium legs.

Where you can get it:

Living Edge

Yves writing desk

title 

 

Designed by: 

 Russell Pinch

Why we love it: Solid walnut and the ability to deliver “bespoke” colours for the leather desktop make this writing desk a favourite. It’s the sort of desk that makes you want to pack it all in and write that novel/those poems/the play you’ve always dreamt of.

Where you can get it:

Pinch Design (UK)

At At

Designed by:

 Tomoko Azumi

Why we love it: The clean lines and natural materials of the At At desk represent an honesty in design. The fold-down desk (just 45cm deep when closed) makes it perfect for smaller spaces.

Anibou
