RCA Show 2009

L.O.F.T Workstation is a project of a flexible changeable structure, the simple construction of which serves for customization and interaction with workspace according to preferences of a user and demands of a currently performed task.

The structure consists of a few elements: main pillar which serves as a support for the ends of two lightweight rails on which the lighting and slider bars are placed on which supporting legs can be moved back and forward according to a spatial requirements. The rails can be moved around the pillar independently as they are sharing the pivot point at the end of each of them on the slider ring centered at the top of the main pillar.
Pillar, rails and rail-legs are all similarly grooved on the outside and horizontal parts. Those grooves are stabilizing features for accessories, like screens, boards, shelves and lighting, which can be mounted on the structure. Grooves are also a cable management feature which makes it easier to change construction settings without struggling to keep dangling cables in chosen place.

Lighting is a fluorescent, cold strip lighting in line fixtures of 4000 K light, which can be slid, exchanged, added to and removed from the rail easily without multiplying plugs and cables.

The entire structure may be disassembled without using any tools by one or two people. Grooves and openings are designed to be an easy and intuitive way of attaching accessories and adjusting the space with no need to drill the holes in the wall or ceiling or using ladders, by simple wedging, tying, hooking.
This way more functionality can be added, space divided and shrink in the workspace.

Worktop is easy to remove and put aside or hanged on the rail-leg wedged shelf equipped with hooks. Table legs, when not in use, can serve as shelves wedged on the rail legs.

Entire structure is made using simple methods out of beech wood, plywood, powder coated steel, chromed pipes, fabric, nylon straps, and machined acetal elements. The imagination of a user is the limit because versatility of the structure might make it even something else than the workspace if required.

This kind of flexible structure suits space restricted home offices, studios and conversion spaces where adjust ability and keeping elements near each other is essential.

    Hi!
    Very, very cool and functional design! We have always struggled to organize our working spaces between cables/technology and drawing desks etc. We even designed our own desks here! But this desk/structure is just amazing and I am looking forward to explore it!
    When and where can I view it?
    Thank you!
