We've covered Amsterdam-based designer Robert van Embricqs's fantastic Rising Furniture before, here and here. Now he's back with a new piece, and unlike his previous floor-standing objects, his Flow Wall Desk is wall-mounted:
"Looks great in stills and animation," you think. "Would it work in real life?" Have a look:

"Inspired by recent global events and the longer-term trends that precede them, to devise a statement piece that lends dignity to the digital workspace through craft, warm textures, and durably engineered fastenings. The Flow Wall Desk is adaptable and with the contemporary design elements, it can be used throughout homes, libraries, hotels, and many other inside designations. During the design process, van Embricqs strove to merge the desk's execution with its design formula by creating a cohesive whole.
"Usability demands that an everyday object such as this should be created with a generalized user's psychology in mind. Vertical element emerges from the wall like a caterpillar with the help of specifically placed hinges. These exposed brass hinges establish a visual rhythm and ensure that the form can follow its function. This led to the notion of a transformation in form and purpose achieved through a single, simple gesture that everyone can familiarize themselves with. With a single turn by hand around its axis, a tabletop is created and once in its horizontal position, the tabletop is supported by wooden slats, creating a more natural look and organic effect that also serves as a screen for more privacy."

That's fantastic, not particularly practical, but definitely beautiful.
