4.9 by Marius Valaitis for Emko
The unusual name of the desk 4.9 has a story to tell: it reflects designer’s Marius Valaitis desire to play with the concepts of perfection vs. flaw. For that it’s almost five, missing just a tiny bit. This translates in the angles of the desktop, which, at its end, has a “crack”, a slit not just for storage, but also to bring closure to the desk’s core idea. The “imperfection” aside, all the details of this piece of furniture have been made with perfect accuracy. It not only brings convenience and efficiency to work, but adds a little bit of style to it as well. Beauty cannot be empty, for sure. But functionality can be beautiful.
