Design student Elodie Elsenberger‘s Land(e)scape Desk shuns screws and glue in favor of a single length of electrical cord to create a versatile work space. The desk is Elodie’s second-year thesis project at the ESAD art and design school in Reims, France, and it appears to have been inspired aesthetically by geographical forms. According to Elodie’s product description, “The electrical cord is woven through the wood, creating the different micro-spaces. The desk uses no screws or glue, only the cord.” Judging by the accompanying images, the cord is not just a design conceit either; one of the micro-spaces forms a functional desk lamp with a bulb hanging from the top of a little cage.
