The disassembled 'Mantis' by Samuel Wilkinson for Case

This year’s Brit Insurance Design of the Year Award winner Samuel Wilkinson has just realised this modular desk for London furniture manufacturer Case. Intended for both office and domestic use, the customisable design features a number of optional, removable accessories such as a drawer for a laptop or papers, a file holder and a back panel which can be used as a note board or privacy screen.

More about the design:

 

‘The framework for Mantis desk was to create an affordable compact work space with a clean elegant aesthetic that can work well in domestic setting as well as an office. The flexible design comes with optional accessories that help to keep your environment neat and tidy. The solid wood top has a removable plate that allows easy access to a storage tray hiding unsightly plugs and cables. All of the components independently fix to the solid top so can be placed as desired by the user. To highlight the natural patterns of the striated solid wood top all the elements have been powder in a textured off white.’
