Self / 2011
In 2011, the RKS design studio was remodeled. This meant that the curvy 16-year-old 1.5” plywood desks at RKS were switched out for snazzy new rectilinear models.
I knew I wanted to take advantage of the available materials, and soon after found out from my friend Sara Boutine that she needed a desk to study for her acting classes.
Her starving drama student budget was a perfect match for my untested furniture-building skills.
Llama is designed to have character. It is a bit timid, but also inquisitive. Once it warms up to you, it’s quite friendly, and teeters on tip-toes, trying to balance the urge to follow you around with the reality of being a desk.
A hole that was once a pass-through for cables takes on new roles as a cupholder, pencil organizer, or grab-handle.
