My Writing Desk by etc.etc. Emko
A writing desk, designed for the working people. For the creative people. People who know the value of efficient work.
While developing the idea of the My writing desk (MWD), designer Inesa Malafej had a clear goal – to reduce the chaotic clutter that creative work brings to the table. The result is a desk which has its storage space organized around the table-top, where the objects are always in sight and easily accessible. This enlarges the desktop beyond its edges without the worry that things might fall down. Furthermore, any unnecessary objects can simply be pushed to the sides, for storage. The high edges of the desk isolate it in the room and create a positive microclimate where things “feel good” in relationship to the user. The wings are divided, leaving space for the electrical wires. MWD features two drawers, to store a laptop and other working tools. The legs of the table can be twisted off for easier transportation. For smaller, cozier spaces,
a one drawer version was created.
About the designer etc.etc.
Inesa Malafej and Arunas Sukarevicius have been working together since they began their design studies at the Vilnius Academy of Arts. In 2012, while continuing their studies at the Royal Danish Academy, they started their own studio, entitled “etc.etc.” During the past two years, “etc.etc.” has already been working for several brands in Europe, an accomplishment recognised by industry’s prestigious “IF” and “Red Dot” awards.
“In our work we hold a deep respect to the crafts, traditions, and evolution of every object. Together with this we are constantly looking for the next step in making them new, better, different, adapting it for today’s environment, technology and society.
We believe that design should enrich things, making them matter”
