Nathan Frey’s Briliant Modular Workspace

We recently came across the Frey Desk at Kickstarter, a flexible workspace that quickly transitions from sitting desk to drafting table to standing desk to easel. A vertical mast supports the desk and shelf. The shelf is handy for holding tools, books and speakers. The desk top is a spacious 30″ x 40″, perfect for a computer and large projects.

Frey’s modular workspace is decidedly brilliant and, to us, pretty homely. Nevermind. It’s design could be a jumping off point for forging our own. We LOVE Frey’s design thinking about how a creative person works, and learning about his own process in designing the workspace.  (Video link HERE.)

Frey writes:

“You do different things all the time. Projects develop in unforeseen ways. This single piece of furniture can accommodate a huge variety of creative processes. I use it to paint, create layout drawings, wire electronics, carve architectural ornaments, and as a computer desk. The shelf is handy for books and my stereo speakers. It’s great for the home or office. The desk is portable enough to take to a job site for architects and supervisors….”

…”It took a couple of years and a number of prototypes that resulted in something much more useful than the original intent.”
