beeboard desk

zm_8893_6

designer piet boon was asked to create mobile houseing for some of the worl’d vast refugee population- during this process he discovered an ecologically low-impact solution for the home office: beeboard. beeboard is a layered cardboard with a honeycomb structure. from this material he created the beeboard desk and storage structure at dwr, which allow the beeboard to remain exposed, creating a richly textured surface that contrasts with its apparent lightness. finished with an acrylic overlay to provide a smooth work surface, the desk is available for $678 (in white or black) at dwr. caution: the surface is flammable, so keep away from lighters, fires, etc.

    Very nice.

    I wonder if there is a supplier in the US. Per http://www.besin.com it looks like it’s only available in europe.
