Schofield loves to include elements of secrecy in his work, and his Shifty desk is no exception. At first, you'd assume the desk's storage unit is located on the front. Instead, the desk is designed so the storage area appears when you pull
out the work surface, revealing a perfect place to store papers and other essentials.Q: How did you get started in product design?A: I started out in graphic design, but I realized it wasn't hands-on enough for me. From there, I went on to work as a carpenter, but this didn't feel creative enough. Eventually, a friend mentioned that I might enjoy furniture design, and it just seemed to click straight away. I love designing product and I've never looked back. Q: What kind of changes do you see happening in product design today? A: I think people are starting to lean towards using more modest materials, and want to know more about where the materials have come from. People are becoming more conscious about their environmental impact, so for someone to buy a product it has to have more of a purpose and longevity.
