Whether you work from home like I do, or would just like to have an elegant office corner as part of your living area, the Slim office by studio Bertjan is a choice to highly consider for its beauty and well thought of functionality.
A table originally designed to serve as a dining table was dressed up for the office and the Slim office was born. Simple, chic while having every comfort an office needs, such as drawers and a matching wall panel and trash bin, attached to the office’s leg by a magnet. What an ingenious detail you may exclaim much like I did. Wait till you hear more: the accompanying drawers can be moved freely and attached under the office’s surface just about anywhere it suits you and easily change the position thanks to the magnet system holding them together. Talk about innovative design! Continue reading

When elegant aesthetics meet playful and innovative design everything is possible… even dining or holding board meetings while… swinging!
“What else will I see?” exclaimed I to myself after becoming familiar with Swing table designed by Christopher Duffy for Duffy London studio.
