Earlier this year, we told you about the "Live/Work" Design Contest, which challenged designers to dream up the next "classic of tomorrow" for the home office. Today, our friends at Dwell on Design and Design Within Reach gave us a little heads up and shared with us this year's winner, whose design could potentially be manufactured and sold by DWR.
Besting 587 entries, the grand prize winner is Chicago-based designer Amanda Ip with the Innermix Desk, created with the designer's own live/work preference. The desk offers a large workspace and simple storage solutions that together create a clean, organized work area. That touch of color also adds a sense of fun and play, a welcome change to a predominantly gray and bleak office furniture.
Congratulations, Amanda! We hope to see the Innermix Desk in DWR stores soon!
