Product design graduate Fredrik Paulsen presents this tiny table for working from home at the Royal College of Art in London this week.
Called Minimal Work Station, the table has enough space for a laptop and one book, plus pockets and containers that clip onto the sides for papers and stationary.
The aim is to prevent piles of paper building up on the desk, meaning the workspace can be moved around the home throughout the day.
Show Two continues at the Royal College of Art in London until 4 July.
Here's some more information from Paulsen:
Minimal Work Station
In the recent years working from home has become an attractive and affordable alternative for people working within small-scale structures and with manageable needs of infrastructure and space. But to arrange life and work in the same space often don't make the ideal conditions for daily routine (e.g. messy dinner tables).
To respond to these new requirements my aim was to limit and organise work space and to design a nomadic worktable that only fits the most immanent tools. The size of the tabletop is defined to give enough room for a laptop and a reading book. These restrictions anticipate the possibility of accumulating piles of paper on your desk.
To accommodate the various utensils and documents the Minimal Work-station includes a set of containers that can carry for example pens, A4 sheets or power adapters. These containers can be hung to the edge of the tabletop. In addition to this, an attachable lamp will provide illumination.To allow further flexibility, the Minimal work-station is designed to be easily moved around in the house, according to the different day-time situations. It might be close to the garden during the day and then close to the kid's room later in the evening. Like this working from home can become better organised, while the general daily routines and the separation of life and work gain flexibility.
