Akira bureau by Mathias Hahn for Schönbuch

Dezeen Showroom: designed by Mathias Hahn for German brand Schönbuch, the Akira bureau serves as both a statement piece and a special place to write.

Akira differs from most bureaus in that it's not meant to be closed when the user is done working. Instead, it is left open to showcase the person's individuality and expression.

This is furthered by its wide range of matt painted finish options, which can be mix-and-matched with one colour for the desktop and another colour for the body.

"Akira defines its own space — a stage, so to speak, for objects and thoughts that the user can play on individually," said Hahn. "The curved rear wall creates a formal depth, a bit like a theatre stage or a cove in a photo studio, resulting in a private workspace that still always offers a glimpse inside."

Akira's desktop extends via a push-to-open mechanism. Beneath it there is a full-width storage compartment and above it there is compartments and shelves for displaying objects and storing office utensils.

The writing desk also has two electrical sockets, concealed beneath a shelf.
