In a world that is increasingly fast-paced, where many of us are able to work wherever we please, we find something comforting in having a solid, well-made desk to sit down at when we need to produce our best work. The Waterfall Desk from L.A. based furniture maker Sean Woolsey, which was originally designed for the architect William Itzen, is just such a desk. This asymmetrical take on Woolsey’s Agent Desk features a continuous grain flow of Black Walnut that serves as the top of the desk and elegantly waterfalls off the edge of one side.
While this is an undeniably striking piece of furniture, it’s got more that just its looks going for it – this desk is equal parts form and function. A built-in leather mouse pad hides a secret compartment, and can only be removed with the strong magnetic wood geode that comes with the desk. A locking leather lined drawer offers additional storage, and a magnetic power block (2 power, 4 USB) can be attached anywhere on the steel frame, and moved in a second’s notice depending on when and where you need power. We imagine working from here will make meeting your next deadline much more palatable.
