Project Name: The Belinda Desk

Location: Singapore

Date Completed: October 2017

Designer: Design Intervention

This desk has been designed to be the ultimate feminine work space, every bit as functional as it is luxurious. The overall design brief for the Belinda Desk was to ensure that it was every bit as functional as it is beautiful with integrated drawers, cable management and charging docks.

Design Intervention employed 5 artisans to achieve this design. The carpenter constructed the curvaceous base, integrating drawers within the organic lines. A special effects painter has then finished the whole frame in a subdued champagne gold leaf. For the table top, Design Intervention chose a soft leather with a gentle paisley print in blush pink with gold highlights which their upholsterer has meticulously crafted into a sensual kidney shape. Furthermore, a metal worker forged a cage-like framework in polished gold. Finally, an electrician wired it with LED strips so that it could highlight the play of textures between the matte gold frame and the shiny metal. The desk is in essence one large floor lamp and casts a soft glow within the room.

Design Intervention’s favourite aspect of this product is its curvaceous lines and soft forms which are decidedly feminine. When seated, the kidney shape wraps its guest in a warm embrace of luxury. Thus, fulfilling the design brief for the Belinda Desk.
