Full of Hot Air: A company called Twisted Image finally started production in February. Their job was to fabricate permanent hot air balloons strong enough to carry the weight of the desk. A new type of rubber composite was used to make balloons that were genuinely air-tight and would never degrade, and Caltech were called upon to supply a Heluim/Hydrogen hybrid gas with an atomic weight 150 times lighter than Helium alone. I couldn’t resist. A delightfully creative reaction to the usual “small and routine” reception desk.

Studio for Remi Zaugg: The resulting studio functions equally as the artist’s place of work and as a place to present and view art, i.e. a small museum. As an exhibition space, the studio was a kind of prototype for the planning of the Tate Gallery of Modern Art, having given us the first opportunity to try out the concept of overhead lighting, projected for the museum in London. This overhead lighting is so simple that one wonders why it hasn’t been used in museum architecture before. Is it too simple, too primitive or not distinctive enough to bring out the individuality of the designing architect? Actually, the opposite is true. Thanks to its almost spectacular simplicity, the exhibition space acquires a peacefulness and concentration to which we are hardly accustomed in conventional museum spaces with their all-glass ceilings, suspended overhead lighting or ceiling grids. Designed by Herzog & De Meuron. Via Workspaces.

John Lewis Loft Office Furniture: Smart, contemporary office furniture mde from hand selected solid oak and oak veneers, and finished with a natural lacquer.

Tusculum Residence: Smart Design Studio designed a contemporary renovation and extension for an early 20th-century terrace house in Sydney, Australia. Apologies everyone for the radio silence at Simple Desks for the past week. A significant commitment of mine is now over and done with, so I’ve got some extra time on my hands - normal service has resumed. Via Cabbage Rose.

Spiral Stair Scenery: Adjacent to the self-designed stairs are desks and cabinets in porcini style. The modern desk chair Ero S is designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell. On the wall sits a Triplex industrial lamp, design Johan Petter Johansson. Glass vase are on the desktop, Ann-Christine made herself by sticking together glasses and bowls. The floor is the old floor in spruce polished up. [Rough translation.] Via Design Vox.

The Northernmost House: A built-in desk in the Bridge Studio overlooks the pond. For anyone who is thinking of revitalising their workspace, I thoroughly recommend this purpose built approach. I am by no means an expert, but if you have the resources, it tends to produce excellent results; there’s a reason that many of the best received entries I’ve posted depict integrated desks. In the end, I think it comes down to compromise. By creating a workspace within an already defined set of constraints, it’s likely that your workflow will be constrained similarly. Conversely, by designing the constraints to fit your idealised workspace, it should work with you, rather than against you.

Going Big, Going Home: The architect placed the windows at Sabrina’s eye level so that she’d be able to see her son, Rocco, playing in the yard outside. Via Minimal Desks.

LYCS Architecture Office Design: A very architecturally interesting office, designed and used by LYCS Architecture. It’s another nice example of how effective, in my opinion, the combination of modernity and old fashioned functionalism can be. The article on Arch Daily is well worth a read.  Via The Occult Collective.

Old & New: Unfortunately I don’t have any background knowledge for you on this, but it’s nonetheless an interesting work area (photographed by Stellan Herner). I’m a sucker for modern furnishings in rustic environments; in my experience it adds some personality that otherwise is sometimes lacking in purely contemporary offices. Via Skarp Agent.

Central Stockholm Studio: The desk, from Ikea, fits nicely with Marcel Breuer’s classy classic chair from Thonet. The startlingly red elements of the photo complement them nicely, and I think the resultant workspace is largely a highly stimulating beauty. My only addition would be a window of some kind; for me, nothing is more inspiring than nature. Via Skonahem.

Workspace Wonderland: House Kekkapaa by POOK Arkkitehtitoimisto Oy & Katariina Rautiala and Pentti is located in North Espoo, Finland. The main part of the house is divided into three zones: living and working space, and a glass-roofed conservatory between. The whole home feels like an ultimate place of creativity and zen year round. Just fantastic.
