Toshihiko Suzuki along with his team from Atelier OPA has designed an openable desk for Yodogawa Steel Works, creating a portable study for whenever and wherever you need it.
For its innovative design, Home Office Openable Desk won the Best Office of the Year award at the 2022 Prize Designs for Modern Furniture and Lighting from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and Global Design News.
Home Office Openable Desk is architectural furniture: it makes an architectural space, while also being furniture, such as a desk and a bookshelf.
The users can roll the casters, open them wherever they like, bring in their usual chair, and have a private space with a desk, bookshelf, and dividers.
The neutral texture of the aluminum honeycomb panel creates an environment where one can easily concentrate on your work and hobbies.
Home Office Openable Desk is equipped with casters for easy movement, ample storage space, a key for protecting important documents and equipment, and a hook on the side for hanging bags and hangers.
There are three round holes on the shelf for the power cord to pass through, allowing neat wiring.
The openable desk consists of a high-quality aluminum honeycomb panel with a three-layer sandwich structure that opens up to 120 degrees with a stopper.
The honeycomb panel with a thickness of 6 mm was developed to house artificial satellites.
From artificial satellites, robots, liquid crystal semiconductor devices, and medical equipment to aluminum furniture, the material meets the demands for weight reduction and rigidity of aluminum.
Home Office Openable Desk is an assembly type and comes with instructions and assembly instructions.
