A desk needs to fulfill some requirements in order to be considered practical and functional. It needs to have certain dimensions dictated by the size of the room, it needs to include plenty of storage space and it also needs to be flexible. Usually there’s not a lot of space available so a compact desk is always welcomed. Flatmate is probably the smallest desk of this kind.
Flatmate is a small desk, a fully equipped unit that compensates with its functionality. The piece was designed by Michael Hilgers for the German design company Magazin. The desk is only 5 inches deep but this doesn’t stop it for being able to hold a laptop, the desktop items and the writing equipment. It also features additional storage space that opens from the sides.
Flatmate is a very practical and functional desk that also has a simple and versatile design that allows it to be included in a large variety of decors. The desk has grooves in the background that can accommodate three metal shelves that are included. That will provide even more storage space. The desk also features an integrated power outlet and a fluorescent lighting fixture. Indeed, it’s a fully equipped bureau. It might be small but it had everything one needs and it also helps save a lot of space.
