New Designers

I presented one of my projects at New Designers last year and although I didn’t get any prizes I had the opportunity to see some of the new British talent. One design that really caught my eye was the ‘homework desk’, designed by Robin Grasby from Northumbria University. The homework desk was the kind of idea that you look at and think ‘Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?’, it combines everything you could ever need in a desk, the surface doubles up as a cutting board and there is even a ruler that sits in a groove so you’ll never lose it! There are no drawers but I tend to lose things in the, anyway, instead there are two felt sleeves which would neatly hold a few folders or sketchbooks. The desk can be customized to suit your working style with the option to tilt the surface and change the arrangement of pen pots etc.
