The Secretaire is part of our exploration into light office systems. In increasingly open office spaces the need for reflection and focus should not be underestimated. Secretaire is a proposal for a place where you can withdraw form the open space to focus on a particular task, or simply think.

Light Touch

Secretaire is very simple in its geometry, and when it is not in used it is a closed box. When opened it reveals a rich texture of different materials and lighting.


Office Home

The home office has not taken off as some suggested, as people enjoy coming in to work, to meet colleagues and have a place dedicated to work. We suggest introducing some materials and finishes know from the home market, such as soft lighting, birch veneer and tactile felt.
