Good design should be self-explanatory of its usability but shouldn’t limit this. This was a major aspect when creating Bars desk. On the one hand, looking for simple and practical ways for setting mood layouts in terms of organization needs was a commitment. On the other hand, the goal was to allow a creative use according to each user demand. This is achieved by placing 3 wooden bars over the tabletop at a height distance that could let people to place books, prints, headphones, and others.

In addition, some added details are spotted to enhance the functionality on each of these elements by machining some openings and cuts to attach your mobile devices, or even to keep your pencils always at hand. The relation between form and function are part of the process of the product. First it started by exploring some interesting ways of jointing wood elements and ended up becoming a desk mainly because the output led to similar shapes. From there the form started giving place to functionality. The rounded shapes, overlapped intersections, or exquisite tabletop are some key features of this design.
