Mechanical Bureau Mark II

Wood | Solid Kiaat worktop | Matte Black | Mild steel chassis

This laptop-friendly bureau is inspired by laid-bare Old World mechanical technology reminiscent of late 19th and early 20th Century farm machinery.

The bureau opens and closes using a system of gears, cranks and rack and pinions. As one turns the handle, the worktop lifts up, while a rack and pinion pushes the timber worktop out towards you, giving you extra work space.
