This is clever; the Shifty desk is sort of an inside-out design; the drawer stays put and the box pulls out, increasing the size of the desk. The designer, Daniel Schofield, says that "By doubling in it's size and having the work area come towards the user, the desk also lends itself perfectly to small space living."
The designer writes:
The Shifty desk / hallway stand is designed as part of the secrecy range of furniture I produced. Unsuspecting people presume that the storage compartment is the draw on the front. What they don't know is that by pulling the FSC Ash work surface, the whole top slides open revealing the hidden storage area, perfect for personal papers and electronic equipment.
Unlike other small desks that we have shown, this one appears to lean against the wall, rather than be fastened to it, as was the lovely Ledge Desk from Urbancase. Schofield has a lovely design philosophy:
"I try to design and make furniture that makes you smile. Good functional design is always at the heart of my pieces. I am passionate about eco friendly, desireable furniture that has a longevity about it."
