You could have a simple elevated slab on which to do your work, but the reality is that modern man spends a great deal of time sitting at his desk. The Glitch Collection by Ryan Frank comprises a lovely little escritoire and a bookcase for extra storage that will lighten up the heavy mood of your productive environment.

Creator Ryan Frank from South Africa has put this pair of quirky furnishings together for display at Barcelona's design week. Both comprise fine steel frames and soft bamboo surfaces that have been arranged with playful slants to shake up the usual rigidity of such objects. The Glitch Desk features a cute cork board and a tiny ledge, as well as an unexpected projecting hook. The Glitch Shelf looks like the addition of wheels would turn it into a trolly with its one askew side and an extending trestle.
