, a company from Portugal, recently sent us some photos of the Lotus Desk, said to be inspired by the fascinating world of mythology, just like all the studio’s designs. The elegant desk celebrates the meanings of the lotus flower and tries to deliver its many values to anyone laying eyes on the original furniture piece: “From new life to death, from purity to passion, Lotus have had many meanings in myths and legends. Swelling from tender bud to full bloom, flowers are associated with youth, beauty, pleasure and the season of Spring: the season of growth and transition. This Desk intends to capture exactly that: the transition from the hard and cold Winter to the blooming and joyful Spring which we love so much. It is a paradox: classicism morphing into deconstruction in a surprising hybrid” How would you comment on the concept and overall design of this desk?
