Desk Box by Raw Edges for Arco
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
Small table/cabinet that hangs onto a wall and is ideal for setting where there is little space available. Inspired by earlier sewing boxes it retracts to form a closed box, half the size of the table top.
The Deskbox represents a new typology in Arco’s focus on tables, which is nowadays their area of specialization. It introduces a playful approach towards everyday products that we would usually take for granted.
The project originated from the project Arco Okay 2011, where alongside our friends from Okay Studio we designed a breadbox with a bread knife that functions as the object’s handle, opening the box with a lifting movement.
It is based on the parallel mechanism from earlier sewing boxes, which Arco used to produce a long time ago.
