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.
Hoe Het Gemaakt Is
The desk with unusual name reflects also the unusual production method. Nevertheless, all starts with traditional things like veneering MDF and producing the legs from the solid wood, the so-called crack in the back puts everything in the different perspective. All the angles have to be connected with very much precise, otherwise, the look of the desk won’t work, even more – the drawers as well. Therefore, it is vitally important to have made everything exact and with care, so the user later on can enjoy all the advantages of 4,9.
