Minimalissimo


The DeskBox is an elegant little worktable, created by Israel-born UK-based designers Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges studio for the furniture brand Arco, It its “box” mode, the item is barely extended from the wall. But as you pull the cover down – it turns into a nicely sized workstation. Designers explain:

The Deskbox is a practical small table/cabinet that is hung onto a wall and it is ideal for settings where there is little space available for furniture. It is an elegant small work place, which is excellent for working on a laptop for instance, and it can be retracted to form a closed box, half the size of the table top.

I like how seamless and fluid this design is. An opening on the back for cables and cords and a small storage compartment complete the piece.

  1. Very neat. I was going to say that hinges on the bottom left picture looked a bit flimsy, but then if the wall part has rebars sticking outward for the moving part to rest on, then it should be just fine. Very nice regardless.
