Intermodality (Desk) by Attila Stromajer
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
This desk was inspired by the prominent place and role of the grand piano in modern and classic homes. This desk represents and symbolizes the flow experience of the creativity and the music through another modality. Through the shape could see not only the piano, but also hear its voice. I wanted to highlight the flow of music and creative work with the parametric shape and the function of the desk. The table symbolizes musicality the transition between sensory modalities.
The desk imitates the grand piano with three legs, a drop-leaf cover and with its shape. It has a modern parametric design with rustic finish. When I created the desk tried to preserve the elegance and charm of the piano while trying to make it as functional as possible. The goal was that through the visual modality the desk bring the auditory modality and musicality into homes. So across the intermodality it symbolizes the the flow experience of music and creative proces.
Design Challenges
The geometry of this desk seems complex but not to difficult to bring to life in expert hands. The project is also focusing on maximalizing the works functionality while respecting the design. It is quite a big challenging to find the suitable measures, proportions, angles, to plan and carry out the precise joining. The special surface treatment of each piece before the assembling rather time consuming, but it is worth to do it. The table can also be made of solid and plywood and recovered materials.
Production Technology
The desk made of antiqued plywood and copper drawer handle and leg. The look is built up of modern, angular and parametric geometric shapes contrasting the modern and the traditional design. You can put objects anywhere in and on the table. The special surface treatment and its roughness enhance the rustic ambiance. In the drawers can be stored documents, stationeries, office supplies. The drawers on the back of the desk are removable.
