Gallery: Aberrant Architecture’s Adaptable Desks Transform Into Enterta...

A drawer containing a 19th Century pub game can be added to the surface to help transform the desk into a fun-filled social space.

With so many freelancers looking for spots in cafes and bars to set up temporary offices, Aberrant Architecture came up with this idea of creating work desks that can double-up as game tables post “office hours”. Designed with London pubs in mind, by day the tables are elegant bureau-style desks, and by night a drawer containing a pub game transforms their unadorned surfaces into spaces ready for some fun-filled socializing and play.

The London-based studio collaborated with Benchmark to create the imaginative 2-in-1 concept commissioned by Wallpaper* for their Handmade exhibition. The furniture designs are beautifully built in two different variations – walnut with an ash surface, and cherry with a maple surface. As a quirky addition to the tables, the designers included the old 19th century British pub game ‘Devil Amongst the Tailors’.
