Homework Desk, Single Drawer
Currently Not Available
An elegant solution for home or office, the nicely scaled Homework Desk (2009) is crafted of select materials and looks attractive from all sides. The desk's balanced proportions are characteristic of Niels Bendtsen's designs, and he maintains the desk's airy look through an innovative detail that allows the drawers to "float" below the glass. In the 1960s, Bendtsen was importing Scandinavian furniture, but he began designing his own when he couldn't find the quality and aesthetics he wanted. Bendtsen's work is in the permanent collection of MoMA, and he was honored with the 2006 British Columbia Creative Achievement Award of Distinction. Made in Canada. The back of the drawer is equipped with a sliding panel for cable management. Soft-closing drawer slides move silently and prevent slamming to keep contents in place. Because the drawer is cantilevered from the frame, there's an additional surface for storage or display between the top of the drawer and the glass.
