A custom desk designed as a partner to the Cubed Side Table, the project is composed of a walnut desk with an embedded surface for a laptop that allows the keyboard to be level with the desk surface. This small level change allows for easy wire management and comfort while typing. A small drawer hides in the wood grain for storing small objects. The aluminum legs support steel plates distributing the weight of the desk. Slender aluminum rods kept in tension support the desk as well. The project was inspired when passing a railroad trestle bridge, with it's slender tensile members working with large mass compression objects.
