Top 5 Desks for Architecture Students
During my time in halls of residence the desk provided in my dorm was terrible. At about 80 cm deep there was barely enough room for my A2 paper, pencils, pens and other drawing paraphernalia. What my University did not consider is that Architecture students need space, and sometimes you need to work from home when the lab isn’t available.
What follows is my top 5 list of desks for Architecture students.
5. Vika Blecket – Ikea
When most students think of ‘Desk’ they think ‘Ikea’. This Desk is especially built for drawing, with a clear panel allowing you to trace objects when a light is placed underneath. There is also plenty of storage for books and drawing utensils. Being from Ikea the price is reasonable too!
4. Black Reversible Desk – Dwell
If style is your thing (and if you study Architecture it probably is!) then look no further than this great looking desk from Dwell. With a glossy black finish, this is probably a better desk for those who wish to design on a computer. What this desk offers is plenty of storage space, and design class in spades.
3. Melltorp Dining Table – Ikea
A dining table? you ask. When I was at University the best place to work was the kitchen. Mainly because of its huge table that allowed me to spread out, make models, draw and have space for even the biggest paper. This table from Ikea is great looking and at only £30.63 it will not matter when you glue your scalpel to it at 3am.
2. One Less Desk – Heckler Design
If you have no need for a space to draw, and a space saving computer such as the beautiful Apple iMac, then the One Less Desk is for you. Incorporating hidden spaces for cables, and separate desks for screen and keyboard/mouse, the One Less Desk is a miracle in space saving, perfect for small dorms.
1. E.L.A Desk – Jovo Bozhinovski
The floating E.L.A desk is the perfect ‘money-no-object’ desk. The amazing industrial design, mixed with incredible engineering more than make up for its lack of storage.
