Polish designer Magdalena Tekieli has combined the thinking of the Romantics, who began a revival in interest for what would come to be known as the antique, with contemporary design initiative to produce this desk, which incorporates elements of mechanical complexity with simplicity and, more importantly, utility.
In an organ-like design, the desk features a collapsing mechanism, that is activated by a crank lever on the side, which ascends a set of storage spaces that are themselves highly adjustable and customisable. This unique working concept provides a perfect work space for the creative thinker moving between design and desk work. The integral element of the aesthetics is the complementing contrast between the employment of black surfaces and materials with the brass legs. You can view a video of the desk in action on Tekieli’s Vimeo.
