While it doesn’t quite achieve the mystifying levels of the Kai Table, the Pegasus Home Desk from Ippolito Fleitz holds its own in the departments of elegance and craftsmanship. While being envisaged as a workplace solution with ‘hidden’ storage spaces, the simple visual scope of the desk alludes to the familiarity of domestic furniture. In this regard, the contrivance can prove to be a perfect solution for your home workstation.
The core design/functional value of the Pegasus Home Desk is focused on its deep bend-leather tabletop. This flexible yet chunky top surface can be ‘rolled and folded’ to access the hidden compartments underneath the layer. These storage spaces can hold a variety of work-related items, like – tablets, laptops, phones, USB chargers and small power supply systems. So in a way, the top leather-crafted surface acts a credible physical boundary, while at the same time letting you easy admittance into the internal system of the furniture.
The ambit however is not just limited to this physical layer. The tabletop also exhibits its intricately perforated pattern that allows a subtle visual connection between the user and the items below the desk’s surface. In other words, you can make out the soft outlines of the objects you have kept inside. Furthermore, the setup takes a practical turn, with the perforations allowing the much need ventilation for the electronic devices that tend to get heated on extended usage.
Pegasus Home Desk’s leather credentials are complemented by the top base framework made from chromium-plated steel bars. Both the front and back facades of this section are draped in burnished stainless steel (optionally walnut wood veneer), while the entire structure is supported by height adjustable metal gliders.
