Everything but the Desktop by Daphna Laurens
Everything but the Desktop is a minimal collection created by Daphna Laurens. The collection consists of organizers, a lamp, and a chair, named On Top Organizers, Above Lamp and a Beside Chair respectively. For Everything But the Desktop, the two designers went in search of the extreme limits of malleability. With a desire to use the material in ways it wasnt designed for, the duo glued together two layers of Forbo Desktop and thus created a two-tone and also double-sided, flexible material. The name of the material (Forbo Desktop) then guided the way in considering the objects that would ultimately take shape: as organizers, a lamp and an easy chair for work. These give insight into, and play with, the various properties (color, texture, malleability) of the material.
