L'Amaca Desk Incorporates Stretchy Webbing for Miscellaneous Storage Beneath

 - May 7, 2014
Most writing tables integrate drawers as a means to provide storage space, but not L'Amaca Desk. This charming piece of furniture has been designed intentionally simply, yet it delivers such delight through its structure and its functional embellishments.

Filippo Protasoni was one of ten designers to dream up a minimalist escritoire for Haitian school children that could be produced cheaply and assembled easily on site. This lovely solution comprises pieces of beautiful pale wood that can be painlessly and intuitively joined, plus a unique feature that exceeds the rather basic expectations.

L'Amaca Desk and its accompanying stool both have stretchy cord stitched through holes in the timber. A loop is formed beneath the chair and a full net spans the underside of the table. Within these, students can stash all sorts of irregular objects, from books and garments to snacks and toys.
