‘The private desk’ is a desk to store the items that we use to take care of ourselves says Danish designer Theresa Arns, “in the context of a dressing table and to work with our mind, in the context of a writing desk.”
A centre section forming the working area contains a drawer for a computer, padded with cork, and a lid with an integrated mirror as well as containers for beauty products. On the right side a wooden stick construction is holding a metal tray with three boxes, which can be used for jewellery and accessories and can be removed and taken to wherever they are needed.
On the left side two metal drawers are attached to the table. Here the table offers space for bigger items; the more private items can be put in the lower closed drawer and items, which have to be in easy reach can be placed on the upper tray.
“The table does not take up too much space but provides enough space to organise ones personal belongings and to have a free workspace. It has a simple construction method and is functional in different living situations and contexts.”
