When Maxime Mellot designed this fish tank desk, his goal was actually not to make it conducive to getting things done -- at least, not in the standard sense of productive work. The completely endearing Túria Table doesn't accommodate the typical functional tasks of the home or office, be they writing, computing, eating or preparing food.
Instead, this fetching piece of furniture is intended to give a person respite, like visiting his or her own natural retreat indoors. The name of the piece comes from a park in Valencia, Spain, and its features in common become immediately obvious. The fish bowl, the plant and the birdcage become microcosms of a pond, a garden the sky, respectively. Sit down and contemplate at this fish tank desk, and certainly don't work yourself too hard.
