Contemporary Desk with Resin Feature Top

Inspired by the beach, this Contemporary Desk balances the colours and organic shapes of the resin feature top with the framing beneath.

‘Kerfing’ the legs was used as a technique for shaping and each kerf was filled with tinted epoxy to unify the frame with the resin feature top. Light framing for the drawers aims to provide an informal openness to suit a breezy summer afternoon while still ensuring functionality along with the aesthetics. The addition of the carved snake reflects cultural significance and meaning.
