Drawers fill up to the point they have to be dumped, cleaned, and the process restarted all over again … but what if you could hot-swap pieces and parts of your desk remain continuously clutter-free and have on hand only what you need?
This desk design by Francois Dransart proposes a system of modular boxes that can be traded in and out to serve a variety of storage, lighting and other functions.
The basic legs-and-surface stay the same, but the slots allow one to optimize one’s workspace on an ongoing basis and take away unused items when shifting between tasks.
Papers and pens can go in one box, cords in another – a charging plate can be swapped for more storage on demand. Leather for lift straps gives a nice warm touch to the white swappable parts and the wooden core details.
