Students, young adults, or anyone living in a smaller space know how valuable it is if we had just a little bit more room in our studio, bedroom, or wherever. Maybe just 10 more square feet in the corner. A couple of of Unbranded members have found solutions to this problem, one being the Three in One by designer Kai-ning Huang (read more about this design on our blog post). When dealing with a desk, it’s not difficult to figure out how to accomplish this task – restaurants do it all the time. Yet, it’s how you do it and how you present it, that makes the difference.
A UK (West Yorkshire) based design studio called ‘bee9‘ has created such a desk called Tablet Desk 2.0, which every college dormitory desperately needs. The mechanics of this product are essentially the same as any other fold-up desk you would see in restaurants. However, this one has its perks and is catered to people like us – students, professionals, workers.
In its ‘standard’ position, you wouldn’t think of it as being special or different. It may even look more like a shelf than a desk. There’s a body, and a top surface that’s cut into the blocks so you can customize it however you want. Then after playing around with it you realize that this thing is pretty awesome. The body folds up and two legs come down. The applications for this table are pretty standard but essential to daily life. No wonder this company is called bee9, its product provides a gentle and benign experience with limited space.
