I love the concept and design of this desk created by Miguel Mestre. Sheets of paper are useed for the main part of the desk to represent the concept of 'Freedom' from the 'boundaries of your notebook pages and post-its'. This would be perfect for me as I love to doodle, and it would be great to have a giant sketch book literally at your fingertips whilst you work, its just unfortunate I have no room for one!
Sounds really geeky, but I'm into nice papers and good stock and love a bit of pulp board! Working for a design and print company we see many catalogues for paper mills come through our doors, GF Smith being one of the studios faves - but this one for Italian paper company Fedrigoni is particularly different to any others I have seen before. Leeds based graphic designer, Jonathan Shackleton, decided to mirror the quality of the paper with the quality of the Italian fashion houses (and with Fedrigoni's client base mainly consisting of fashion labels it makes this design even more appropriate). I love the hands on approach with this concept and always think something with which you can interact with is extremely effective. Being able to make the suits yourself you get a feel for the texture of the papers and how the different colours can work together and really portrays Fedrigoni's beliefs that their paper is "ultra functional yet wonderfully expressive"
