Status: In progress

 

This reception desk, set to be built by mid-2020, is treated not as a single box to be clad, but as a spatial arrangement of several solid objects.

A series of massive forms act as columns for the large countertop, lending the desk a sense of depth and dynamism which comes alive as one moves around it. Through the looseness of the composition and the gentle curves which form deep, soft shadows, the result is a sculptural desk which is playful, voluptuous, and solid, rich enough to stand on its own, and simple enough to be part of a whole.
