Pegasus Home Desk

Munich / 2014

Pegasus Home Desk, Munich. A project by Ippolito Fleitz Group – Identity Architects.

The Pegasus Home Desk is a small, ingeniously conceived home workplace that provides space for the digital devices that have long since become part of our everyday lives. A well-designed workplace solution is conjoined here with the elegance of a perfectly crafted piece of domestic furniture. The thick bend-leather tabletop can be rolled or folded upward as needed to access the intelligently arranged compartments below. Here there is space for a laptop, tablet PC, mobile phone, paper, charging stations, power supply or other accessories.

The finely perforated pattern of the leather not only creates a visually interesting surface structure but also hints at the devices stowedbelow while providing additional ventilation of the relevant compartments. Like in a functional saddle bag, these objects disappear inside and yet are readily available at any time. The Pegasus Home Desk brings order to the chaos of digital everyday life, juxtaposing high-tech aesthetics with the material qualities, feel and workmanship of the artisanal world of the leatherworker and saddle-maker.
