The Belgian company Universo Positivo
presents the console Hall
, designed by the duo Jan & Lara
. With a minimalist design, it hides a complex technical nature.
console consists of two drawers and an elegant wooden structure. Its design is very simple yet its technicality is complex. This is proven by the conception of the drawers, the curving of the metal around the edges and the finish of the wooden legs. It beats the traditional console and has multiple functions.
Add a chair and this console becomes your new desk.
is made with a combination of oak wood and powder coated metal.
