    Pliant - folding desk My intention was to design a desk that won't take much space in small room. Design is brought down to its miniumum and it's still very functional. It can be folded and placed against the wall. While folded state it serves as a storage unit; things we had on the desk and on the top, slide down into pockets at the back of the working area and integrated shelf. Prototype in pine wood and birch blockboard with steel pivots made in 2013. wojtektomaszewski.com Read Less

Pliant
concept of folding desk
 
It is a known fact that people settle mainly in the cities. That’s a good occurrence but, on the other hand the cities are nowadays overpopulated and, as a result, we are lacking a space to live. our  Flats are shrinking and becoming more temporary, so we need to save even the smallest area without giving up the comfort.
Pliant is a conceptual attempt addressing the problem of shrinking living space. It was designed for small flats, which need to accommodate living and working area. Its design is simple and puts emphasis on material honesty and functionality. The desk can be folded and placed against the wall. When closed it serves as a storage unit for all items that were on the desk or on the shelf above; then everything slides into special compartments placed at the back and stays secured and invisible until the Pliant is opened.
