Kabinett dresser by Alexander Lervik for Adea

Alexander Lervik designs Kabinett dresser for Adea that doubles as a desk

Dezeen Showroom: Finnish furniture manufacturer Adea has launched Kabinett, a cabinet for the home office that was envisioned by Stockholm designer Alexander Lervik and also functions as a work table.

Kabinett is part of Adea's newly launched Smartwork range, spanning two products that create a comfortable, ergonomic set-up for working from home.

The furniture items were created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which saw the Finnish government offer grants to small and medium-sized companies that came up with new products or innovations while in lockdown.

Lervik designed the dresser to make the best use of space while still looking like a stylish piece of furniture.

"At first glance, Kabinett looks like a regular cabinet. But it has built-in features that allow it to be transformed into an entirely different piece of furniture," said Lervik.

"The innovation lies in its function. From a piece of furniture that doesn't look like a table, you get a work table that can be raised and lowered," he continued.

"I've placed great emphasis on making it both aesthetically pleasing and ergonomic. Your body shouldn't be in pain because you're working from home."

Kabinett measures 69 centimetres high and comes in three different formats – Basic, Laptop and Screenlift – that each have an adjustable tabletop.
