The Palette Desk is like a multi-tiered sculpture that doubles as a desk.
“In a world where everyone is rushing around mega multi-tasking, to sit at an ordinary desk feels so static,” says Spanish artist / designer Jaime Hayon. “I felt compelled to design a desk with a feeling of motion, inspired by the kinetic sculptures of Alexander Calder. Balancing various shapes and materials at various heights supported by a metal frame. In theory it’s like a mobile but in reality it’s a desk.”
Each Palette Desk partners two shapes together: an elongated bean shape with a simple round shape. The two merge a marvellous mix of regal materials available in three different combinations.
