An elegant solution for home or office, the nicely scaled Homework Desk (2009) is crafted of select materials and is attractive from all sides. The desk’s balanced proportions are characteristic of Niels Bendtsen’s work, 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 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 two-drawer side is equipped with a sliding back panel for cable management.
- The file drawer can be adjusted for letter- or legal-size files.
- Soft-closing drawer glides move silently and prevent slamming (thus, the interior contents stay in place).
- Because the drawers are cantilevered from the frame, there are additional surfaces for storage or display between the top of the drawers and the glass.
