Incanti Wall-Mounted Desk, 2019

Solo university project with Herman Miller

As featured on StudentDesign @student.design

The inspiration for the project came from a desire to find a better way of sharing limited space while also suiting the needs of multiple users.

Incanti is a versatile cantilevered desk-system that creates a shared workspace.

The product is made up of two main components: the wall-mounted frame and the work surface. These can be joined in three different positions to suit various tasks: 
1) Positioned horizontally to form a familiar desk setup.
2) An inclined position, based on a drawing board, for working or exhibiting.
3) It also stores in a vertical position which allows for presentations & exhibitions.

The focus of the design was to promote share-ability but additionally, its final form and multiple positions, make it ideal for small or unusual spaces. The deliberately simple design is suitable for a range of locations such as commercial spaces, educational institutes or within a home environment.

PACKAGING WITH INSTRUCTIONS.jpg

The products design is suited to be transported flatpack, reducing its carbon footprint and keeping the retail price down. The product’s packaging also doubles up as a guide for quick and easy installation by the end-user.

The simplicity of the product offers various options for customisation to suit its surroundings, such as branding (utilising colour & artwork) and surface finishes (wood, laminate, MFC, Fenix or whiteboard).

The workstation desk-top utilises a sandwiched honeycomb card centre to reduce weight, enabling it to cantilever in various positions against the wall-mounted tubular steel structure.
