The first place I hit after waking up and freshening up every morning is my work desk! I, then go on, to spend a substantial amount of my day on it, working and typing away to glory, and usually bid adieu to it by evening. And I believe this is the case for most of us since work from home became the new norm, and our home offices our new favorite hang-out spot. And now for some reason, whenever I come across a great desk design, I instantly get chills. I begin envisioning myself working on that particular desk, wondering how comfortable and ergonomic it might be to work upon. New desk designs almost excite me at this point in my life, you can say! One such desk that truly excites me is the ODU Desk.
Designed by Annabella Hevesi, there is something about the ODU Desk that instantly puts me at ease. It’s just so well-designed! Clean, minimal, and soft, it’s a desk that almost gives me Japandi feels. (Japandi is a growing design trend that merges Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics.) It’s a warm wooden desk with a protective screen around it that ensures you have your privacy while working! It shuts off the outside world and helps you focus completely on your work. Not to mention, the wooden desk top has been integrated with little storage containers! These containers are perfect for storing your office stationery, souvenirs, and other knick-knacks you may want to place on your desk. An interesting feature is that you can actually remove and separate the containers from the desk. This is perfect for when you want to clean the nooks and crannies of the desk. The ODU desk also has two main drawers to store your larger office items such as files and documents. The handles on the drawers have been so subtly crafted that they are almost invisible! Little hidden details like these on the ODU desk are what make it such a gem. The desk is also large enough to accommodate another person on it. Both the sides of the desk have been neatly equipped with storage sections and drawers, so if for some reason you have a work buddy for the day, the two of you can easily fit on the desk, each with his/her own personal space.
The ODU desk is a one-of-a-kind furniture design that not only meets the mark when it comes to functionality but aesthetics as well. It’s a beautifully designed minimal piece, that also caters as an efficient workspace for you. It creates a productive environment for work, all the while managing to perfectly merge with the interiors of your home office. It’s the best of both worlds!
