Everyone knows the feeling of working on desktops; especially during the moments when you need a lot of concentration. Any sound, visual or feeling may ruin your entire focus, which puts our mind into a heavy layaway from your much needed brainstorm. It is required to be productive at work, more so to become highly concentrated on what you do, but there are many aspects in the world that seems to invite your mind off your task and makes your imagination wander and wonder. To prevent the leakage of your precious productivity, designer Bram Vanderbeke has created a unique desk that will shield you against any detractors and will leave you in your most focused state.
Check out Woven by Bram Vanderbeke. This unique table is created especially for a workplace which requires focus. This is the answer to the hustling and bustling places where users are exposed to a lot of distractions that will make their time unproductive. With this desk, it is possible to work very privately, but it still allows the users to have contact in their working space. The woven covers of the desk are like a cocoon which avoids visual interruption and envelops one within his contained working flow.
A beautifully appealing object that corresponds to a working person’s needs, Woven is perfect for a busy space which requires much more concentration in a creative way. See this work at http://www.bramvanderbeke.com/woven.
Peleg Design has been aimed to revolve around three basic principles: mainly functionality, aesthetics and humor. It is creativity enhanced by continuous curiosity with an obvious purpose to transform what is boringly common into a refreshing, new way of approaching design. The studio aims to provide users exciting experience through the smallest details in their lives, endowing them with quirky new objects that will provide cheeky appeal as well as function for their day to day needs. Take for example this one of a kind bookmark which they invented to open one’s book on the right page!
A zipper for a book? Why not? Books can now be disguised as an interesting pouch of bag, and users can insert this vividly colored item to make them remember the last page of their read. And then, when they can finally rest to continue on their research, they can open their books up through this bookmark, creating a stunning impression that this item was entirely zipped the whole time.
Peleg Design was founded in 2004 by Shahar Peleg, whose objective is to create various products for home, offices and living spaces.

With their objects, he invites users to take a closer glance, revealing new perspectives in an object. See more of their works at http://www.peleg-design.com/products.php.
What is lean and fibrous yet strong and durable? While you may have many options for answering that particular question, this answer may prove to be another great match—Artecnica’s Kaktus chair. This lightweight, fibrous and lean chair doesn’t seem to impress much from the first look; it seems like a bunch of lean straws put together to make one complex, woven object that could at least stand. However, hold your comments, because this frail-looking item is actually a stool which could carry your weight! Enough to bring it for outdoor use, you can enjoy sitting down outside with this strong chair without the fear of tumbling over to the found.
Enrico Bressan, one of Artecnica’sw co-founder, created this stool from aluminum material. An architect by trade, he took inspiration from the fibrous system of the Staghorn Chola cactus, from which he based the name of the object. While it cal look disarmingly fragile, it is capable of supporting great weight. The item comes in different vibrant colors that will appeal to any interior, making the whole space highlighted through its minimalistic look.
