Alada folding desk by Daniel Garcia Sanchez for Woodendot

Dezeen Showroom: Daniel Garcia Sanchez has created a space-saving folding desk for Woodendot that doubles as a decorative shelf.

In one swift movement, the Alada desk can be transformed into a display shelf for small decorative items such as picture frames, candles or plants.

The desk was conceived in response to the growing need for flexible workspaces in the home.

The aim is to help users delineate their work time from their private time.

“Separating your personal time from your work time when doing home office can be challenging,” explained Sanchez, who co-founded Woodendot alongside Maria Vargas in 2013.

“The need for that closing time, for that literal act of saying ‘work is over for today’ was something I couldn’t find no matter how much I looked. This is where the idea for Alada was born. What if you could just close your workstation and forget about it until you need it again?”

The multifunctional desk also features hidden storage space when folded up to conceal slimline objects such as notebooks or laptops.

It can be installed at any height and its minimal footprint allows it to fit even into small spaces.

The Alada desk is available in oak wood with a natural or white lacquered finish, as well as in ash wood with a choice of white or black lacquer. Other custom finishes are available on request.
