‘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,’ explains jasper morrison. with these in mind, morrison designed ‘ink’ for molteni &c – a desk where the form is a consequence of the purpose. the designer believes a desk should be more of a place than an object, where ideas take shape and are turned into writings or projects with concentration as 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 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.
