This foldable magazine rack is actually an undercover work desk!

The demand for space-saving furniture has never been higher! With our cramped home and office spaces, we all need designs that are highly functional but also exceedingly compact. Designed by the German design studio Kaschkasch, the FJU desk is one such instance of a compact piece of furniture making the most of its structure. It is an extremely linear and simple wall desk, an example of a foldable workspace. It can be closed or folded up, to make use of the two tiers of storage (maybe as a magazine rack!) or as a sleek writing surface. The writing surface is spacious enough to contain your computer, laptop, iPad, books and etc. It’s ‘foldable’ quality is all thanks to an innovative hidden mechanism, owing to the genius of the designers. Crafted from oak, the FJU desk is coated with an organic finishing of muted charcoal.

The extraordinary desk was produced by Living Divani and debuted at IMM Cologne. With it’s simplistic and modular design it caught the eye of quite a few admirers, and I must admit I am one of them!
