The Bookdesk Provides a Work Surface and a Niche for Stashing Novels

It's effective enough to assemble stacks of reading materials on your work surface, but this practice does little for promoting tidiness. The Bookdesk integrates the functions of a work station and a small shelf, helping you to separate the task at hand from the resources that you'll reference every now and then.

Designer Damien Van Durme collaborated with Matthieu Serck to produce the modern office setup. The Bookdesk collection comprises a chair and a table, both with smooth laminated surfaces and four wooden legs. What's notable about the latter object is its sloping tabletop that's ideal for writing on, and the crooked trough along its back edge that encourages the neat storage and arrangement of hardcovers.
