Hybrid Desk and Conference Table by Jovo Bozhinovski

January 29, 2011

Bulgarian designer Jovo Bozhinovski has created a hybrid desk and conference table for a construction company in Bulgaria.


Description from Jovo Bozhinovski:

The project is created as per order of a construction company from Bulgaria. The assignment was to design an office, which to be different and remembered. Constructing the functions, which are necessary for one such space we found out the idea to make a hybrid between the desk of the manager of the company and a conference table, which he needs in order to organize meetings with clients, as well as the working meetings with its personnel. This piece of furniture  turned into an accent of this office and gave it a unique appearance.

Lead by the fact that the main activity of the company is construction, we have decided that we have to design a product, which to be clearly constructively built with a visible construction, a modern vision and innovation in the organizing of the working space. We have tried to embody the main principles of this construction company in a unique piece of furniture, which occupies a central place in this office and giving it unique appearance. This way we have created  this “working station”. Having in mind the hierarchy in a company we have decided to put it on a platform in order to obtain differentiation in the levels between the desk and the conference table, this way the manager of the company took a proper place in the centre and on idea higher than the others. We have used metal profiles of incorrosive steel in order to construct the frame and glasses with which to cover it. We have created one product, which besides with its appearance it impresses and with its construction.

We have designed it in such way, so it can allow us to carry 2/3 of this furniture in air, or said in other words 2,30m. stick out consolely in the air. We used adhesives for the main part in the platform – this way we obtained the necessary stability. Besides the huge sizes and the heavy construction the consolely pending part and the profile gilling have given a light appearance of this piece of furniture, obtaining a sensation that as if it is floating in the air.
