This IKEA-worthy minimal fold-away workdesk is inspired by the design of laptops

I spend a substantial amount of my day on my desk, typing away to glory. Most of the time I also end up eating my meals on it. And binge-watching on Netflix as well. And I’m sure that’s the case with most of us, since working from home became the new norm, and our home offices became our new hang-out spots. But having a great desk is really important. Simply a ‘good’ desk won’t do either. A great desk helps us work comfortably and effectively. It puts us in the right mindset, helping us achieve our daily productivity goals and checkmark all the tasks on our to-do list. Not only should our desks be clean, but they should also sport an ergonomic and functional design. And with the space constraint issues that most modern houses face today, we can also add ‘space-saving’ to the checklist. And one such design I recently came across is the Flip Desk!

Designer: Charles O. Job for Vij5

The issue of space constraint is really a major one in the contemporary apartments of today. Hence, having a dedicated workstation that not only amps up your everyday productivity but also manages to consume a minimum amount of space in your home is always an excellent idea. And this is where the Flip Desk jumps right in. Designed by Zurich-based designer Charles O. Job for the Dutch design brand Vij5, this minimal and sturdy desk promises to take up zero floor space.

The Flip Desk is a super compact and fold-away workstation served in an elegant and eye-catching packaging. Inspired by the design of a laptop, the desk folds and unfolds, creating a flexible and practical workdesk as and when needed! You simply flip it open to unveil a nifty storage organizer, as well as a compact worktop supported by a specially designed wooden hinge. Both the organizer and the worktop function seamlessly together to create a practical and functional workspace. The organizer can accommodate all kinds of items such as a laptop, notepads, magazines, stationery, and other writing utensils.

Once you’re done using the Flip desk, you can fold the desk, and it magnetically stays shut, hiding the clutter that the storage organizer holds, and maintaining the otherwise minimal and clean appearance of the furniture piece. The Flip Desk is an excellent open if you’re looking for a handy yet flexible workdesk that can be hidden away when needed! It is ideal for tiny homes, and modern apartments with minimum floor space.
