The viva desk is our newest addition to the Viva collection as we strive to present our vision for modern Latin-American furniture and design. The Viva desk expands on the Viva concept by introducing a new material, OSB, an industrial wood agglomerate most commonly used for industrial packaging. OSB is transformed and re-used in this expansion of the Viva line to decrease each objects environmental footprint and providing a unique and distinct look.
As with the Viva stool and table, the Viva desk merges computerized manufacturing with artisanal intervention. Computer cut OSB pieces, are given a natural OSB matte finish and black Matte finish. A hand knitted sued string intertwines the upper and lower centerpieces acting not only as a decorative element but to create a segmented shelve for books, magazines and notebook storage. The knitted pattern forms both at the top and underside of the desk providing Viva’s unique attitude and soul. The Viva desk materializes our view of a complete design where each detail and element holds an aesthetic but also functional purpose.
