The twisting form, and resulting tension, requires the Torque Desk to be constructed in a malleable and ductile material. Bringing together clever engineering and handcraftsmanship, all the components of the metal body are structural as well as functional, and add aesthetic value. The flat plane of the desk is folded to support itself at the one end while resting on a set of drawers at the other. The rotating drawers are cantilevered around a metal spine, which performs multiple functions including structural support, pivot point, and cable management, connecting the floor to the desk surface.

‘A twisting take on a traditionally formal product. In this instance, the desk has been transformed into a dynamic spatial object that contrasts with the straight walls of the space it occupies.’
