I believe in the virtue of small desks. Especially if our tasks are limited to writing, reading and light computing (which is usually the case for many people at home). Limited surfaces keep you organized and, if you add a clever storage hack to it, you’re set. The Quello table by British designer Phil Procter is exactly that – a tiny desk with the neat storage compartment. When not in use as a work station, Quello can serve as a console in a hallway or vestibule. Add a chair to it – and it transforms. The top of the table slides both ways allowing one to reach the storage underneath without disturbing objects on the surface. Lovely idea beautifully executed.
