ravenscroft desk

After a lifetime of cramming drawers full of random bits of paper and other junk and calling it “organization,” I’ve decided to pursue more drastic measures in my next apartment and strive for no drawers. Yes, no drawers — or at least very few. My thought is that if I can have everything out on open shelving or some other creative display, I will be more inclined to a) have less and b) maintain it more thoughtfully.

This Ravenscroft desk designed by Leonhard Pfeiffer is right in line with my new storage model. I love how open and angular it is; like a beautiful sculpture that just so happens to double as a workspace. The Ravenscroft desk launched at Maison de Objet in Paris a couple weeks ago; click here to find out more information about its availability. — Kate

    Things that are simple can also be terribly clever, elegant, and graceful. Thanks for sharing, Kate!

  7. Katie says:

    This is very cool design! I just wonder if it could be turned into a foldable desk… That way, if it’s not the primary it’s at least mobile.
