‘Torque’, a twisting take on a traditionally formal product, is Alessandro Isola and Supriya Mankad’s desk “transformed into a dynamic spatial object in tension with the straight walls of the space it occupies.

Bringing together clever engineering and handcraftsmanship, all the components of Torque’s metal body are structural as well as functional. “The flat plane of the desk is folded to support itself at one end while seemingly resting on a stack of drawers in the other end. The rotating drawers are cantilevered around the spine which performs multiple functions of a support, a pivot and a cable management system connecting potential floor point all the way up to the desk surface.”

 

Torque was featured in Architonic’s newsletter for February 2013, read more here.
