Thijmen van der Steen

Department: Man and Living

The computer has established itself as part of the living room without being a conscious part of it. The division between living and working is fading. Fading desk plays with this phenomenon and gives the computer a place of its own that is very worthwhile. Not a boring workspace hiding in an unobtrusive corner, but an elegant piece of furniture that engages with the interior. The semi-transparent cover does not close off the workspace from its surroundings, but aids concentration. Vice versa, you can see the computer, but details disappear behind the misty print. When work is done, the screen is closed. Put a lamp in it and it becomes a special light object in your home.
