Transforming Minimalist Escritoires

The Swish Console Desk Has a Hidden Track to Conceal Clutter

— February 11, 2014 — Art & Design
A person who's attracted to the Swish Console Desk will likely be one with an interest in minimalist design. As such, he may tend to keep a tidy home with his possessions always tucked out of sight for an ever-clean interior atmosphere.

This crisp and contemporary carrel by Blu Dot enables this individual to treat it like an effective workstation, complete with stacks of papers and strewn-about electronics and office supplies. An indented work surface is provided for such items and a broad drawer serves for the storage of occasionally used items. When the user wishes to hide any mess that has come from his productive activities, the Swish Console Desk has a sliding cover that becomes a concealing tabletop, stylishly consistent with the timber material of the furnishing.
