Roel Huisman has created a series of resin tables that appeared during the London Design Festival 2013. Huisman’s 'Writing Desk' design features a built-in lamp, vase and ashtray (which is discreetly hidden by a pullout wooden slab used for writing).

Besides the super convenient, space-maximizing design, this table is also really beautiful; the tabletop is made of a gorgeous, transparent polyester resin, and the legs and writing surface are made of wood. Of this design decision, Huisman says, "I like to combine the polyester with wood, a natural combination since the resin was developed for the naval industry.”

Overall, this resin design is a handy and pretty pastel addition to your home, and a continuation of Huisman’s resin-based designs.
