I have obsessed about producing an alternative to the ugly and pricey chipboard and melamine veneered office desks we all know and loath. Something sexy, sturdy and simple to assemble.
After exploring various solutions on and off for a few years and never quite feeling satisfied the passion was fading. But, sitting in my Obs local, sipping a flat white, (as you do) the idea hit me. “Use the natural flexibility of the wood to create tension that adds stability.” Simple! Although it wasn’t.
I needed to produce four and a half prototypes of this single concept before I was happy. If it hadn’t been for my patient, generous supporter, this would never have happened. “Alban, for this, for the wine and for everything else I am truly grateful. I will never forget it.”
