The Bridge desk.
Is a tribute to the city of Porto, The only city in Europe with 6 bridges. This particularity was the inspiration for this project.
I wanted to make a product of daily use and whit a close connection to the user. An object that would allow a “bridge” between the digital world we live now and one more traditional.
Bridge is the “metaphor” that remind you to always keep connections and provide a passage over the obstacles that you may face at work.
Is made from oak or walnut with copper metal arcs that span the legs, much like the structures you’d find on the bridges in Porto.
