Manoteca Reincarnates a Vintage Door as a Rustic Desk
Posted By Ana Lisa Alperovich On March 26, 2012 @ 4:23 pm In green furniture,Recycled Materials | No Comments
Manoteca  is a Bologna -based studio that specializes in restoration, reinvention, and re-design of abandoned furniture and objects. One of their simple and best works is called Indoor, an elegant old wooden door that was transformed into a unique desk. Rough, beautiful, and full of history, the clever piece works as a desk if opened and functions as an eight-seat dinning table if closed!
Measuring 78″ long by 31″ high and 40″ deep, Indoor is the perfect size to work in a multifunctional  manner, as a desk or as a table. When it is opened, handy fabric pockets placed on the door’s panels can be filled, and a wooden drawer on the side was designed for keeping everyday materials at hand. Still keeping the beautiful traditional details that makes it unique  — old marks, hinges and locks — Indoor is a great example of restoration done with love.
