OK, so here is the problem: My wife and I suddenly have to work from home. This wasn’t even an option before and with an apartment of five bedrooms and four kids we actually don*t have a room for it. Only option: our bedroom. With all the chaos that comes with a bunch of kids, we have tried to keep our bedroom as tidy as possible. The idea that we would have to turn this room into an office was a little nightmare for me. So I decided: If we put a desk in there, it should be two things:
- It should look really nice and incorporate some design elements that will make it seem like it was only built for this room.
- Everything that is on the desk while we work needs to go into drawers in the evening, so that the bedroom becomes a bedroom again.
The solution: this plywood desk with flat but very large drawers and rounded feet that take up a shape already existent in our room.
Our house is insulated with straw-bales and the inside is plastered with clay. All the corners of the clay plastering are rounded. So I measured the radius of these corners and used that as the basis for the design.
Here is a video about the process:
