FUNCTIONALITY IS THE KEY When we thought of designing a working desk, it would not be good enough to just create a “new” desk. The LOCUST desk respects the principles of good design. It is environmentally friendly and seeks to solve and find solutions, that even you did not know you needed it.

WHAT THE PLUG? Things are made more beautiful when striped of all complications. To get rid of the chaos caused by the electric cables, we arranged electric plugs in a central compartment so that no one will trip over the wires. A smart and elegant solution if you don’t mind us saying.

BE AWARE WITH THE OBVIOUS! In our design process, we find solutions that are not always obvious. The LOCUST desk is higher in the back to allow a better ergonomic and comfort position. It may not be perceptible at a first glance, but you will feel the relief after a few hours of work.

WHO IN THE WORLD MAKES DRAW SLIDES LIKE THIS? The Locust desk is 99.9% made out of wood, that’s why we decided to make the drawer slides in solid wood as well. The slides are hand-made from SUCUPIRA, polished only with bee wax. They extend more than traditional slides. Looks simple, right?

TELL US WHAT TYPE OF WOOD YOU LIKE, WE’LL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE Everyone is different. And we respect that. That is why we make our pieces in different types of woods and even wood glazing, if you wish a little bit of colour in your life.

JUST A FEW QUICK NOTES ABOUT THE LOCUST It is a complex table, designed to look simple. 99.9% made of wood and 100% made by hand. A single cable gives life to your electronic devices. The natural oil finish allows the wood to breath, absorbing and returning humidity from the air, improving the environment a round you.

NEVER! Did you know that our oils are made from fruits? That’s right! Because natural oils allow the wood to breath. And by the way, varnish? NEVER!
