Modular desktop
The challenge was to create a working board adaptable to the ever changing needs of busy worker. The concept is based on a system of trestle and tray. A translucent board made of honeycomb PMMA offer an exceptionally light and rigid worktop. Holes drilled in the panel permit to run cables under a wire system. This pleasant haptic worktop is hold by 3 wood combinable modules.
– Trestle with metal U jaws permit a gain of space on top and under the desk
– Storage module can be inserted in the board. Under the work top a door permit to store documents, a drawer accessible directly from the top give an instant access.
– Table leaf is built with a central hole in order to slide along the board. In a cantilever position you can add 70cm to the table length or simply use it to separate the work place : workers will be free to choose wood or the plastic board to work on. This on person table also suite for an autonomous use beside the main desk.

Shelving system
To answer the short delay for construction we choose to use an already existing storage system. Wood shipping boxes have been fixed to a OSB boards and bend to create graphical contorted shapes. The lid could cover closed parts. Mounted with wheels mobile boxes offer extra storage and seating for visitors.
