the noplace working desk – pragmatic design for inhouse production.

The twelve flexible work tables at noplace co_working room are an essential part of its functioning. The room constantly transforms into an event location for workshops, exhibitions or talks. So its interior needs to be easily moveable and storable. Starting from the Eiermann table frame, this design alters the construction so the tables can be folded flat and produced manually much easier. In particular, the process of fabrication was characterized by teaching each other the necessary skills.

At that time, the wood and metal workshop of minha galera was still located in the industrial hall in Hürth, so we could do most of the work directly there with the machines of the collective. The table consists essentially of two parts: a foldable metal frame made of square steel tubes and a multiplex board, coated and with milled grooves on the underside to fix the position.
