IT APPEARS to be floating, or is it? It’s a unique love story– Arts & Crafts meets
Bauhaus meets Houdini.
The Twentieth Century started off with an innovative bang, as early industrial
trailblazers of invention, design and architecture set forth a flood of rapid change
& transformation to everyday life.
The Arts & Crafts Movement was a direct result of the Industrial Age. Tired, overused,
mass produced revivalstyles were out and simple, streamlined artisan designs were
in. The Bauhaus Style expanded on the Arts & Crafts Movement,yet embraced technology,
utilized modernmaterials & designed for mass production.
In keeping with the simplistic design & traditional craftsmanship both movements
demand, staggering rich, dark stained 1 x 2 boards are placed on a single sheet of
wood and held together with a simple wood-dowel construction. White modernelements
embellish the drafting desk’s underside, including a minimal-styled metal wire elfa®
And the magnificent eyetrick? Voila! White metal modular shelving brackets and
an antique industrial two pulley system anchored into the ceiling joist above, magically
carry the balance of weight. ♠
