stine gam and and enrico fratesi, the italian-danish duo behind copenhagen-based GamFratesi, have designed ‘the rewrite desk’, a cocoon-like desk that isolates and protects the user while allowing them to remain connected at the same time. the piece which was produced for contemporary brand, ligne roset was most recently on show at maison et objet 2011 in paris. using solid walnut and wool as its primary materials, the desk’s unexpected proportions break free from historical references while maintaining a mid-century aesthetic. an over-sized shell is fixed into place providing a individual environment that is sheltered from both light and external noises. a metal chest is fixed to the underside of the desk to conceal transformers and electrical cables. a small slit in the top of the desk houses a cable port where users can plug in and connect effortlessly.
