Wooden secretary desk
“The formal appearance of an object should not just be the result of hours spent analyzing the problem or producing a large number of drawings. In many cases it is the visual consequence of an idea, of a process, of a function or simply of an intuition” writes Jasper Morrison in A Book of Things, Lars Mueller Publisher, 2015. With these convictions, Jasper Morrison designed Ink, a desk where the form is a consequence of the purpose. A desk is more of a place than an object. That is where ideas take shape and are turned into writings or projects. Concentration is the main requisite. Ink is made of American walnut, it is trapezoidal in shape and you access it by opening a door which is tilted to become a work top. Inside the compartment, three drawers, LED lighting and another compartment fitted with sockets for connecting all kinds of electronic devices, even if the name Ink recalls traditional handwriting done with pen, ink and paper, but above all with ideas.
