As someone with a messy desk, I so want this feature added to it:
This desk was designed and built by Rob Day and Jeremy Kehoe, whose firm was called Carroll Street Woodworkers. They also designed this nifty bureau with push-button functionality (and I have zero idea how the mechanism works):
It's really the first feature that I want though, as I'm always casting about searching for my favorite pen.
By the bye, I say their firm "was called" because, sadly, after making a splash at the 2011 Interior Design Show in Toronto, they appear to have fallen off the face of the earth. Their website no longer exists and it appears the company has shut down. If Day and Kehoe are still designing furniture, either together or independently, I can't find them.
So…would it be stealing an idea if the firm that came up with it no longer exists?

Jeremy Kehoe is still
about, and still making and selling the desk...
Really? No idea?
Consider it a salvaging effort.
I was thinking a simple lever between the button and the back of the drawer could do the trick
That's essentially what I suggested. I just wanted to keep the inner workings a mystery to the user. Using only a lever would immediately inform the person pushing the button that the drawer's movements are directly linked to how hard and how far they push the button.
I like both of these ideas. Simple, elegant.
Inspirational work like this is rarely seen these days - not just impressive and unique, but also well-thought, elegant, functional and great quality. A great centerpiece for any interior.
Beautiful pieces. Very creative. I wish I had thought of them.
Nice piece but those legs! yikes! Could be why they are no longer in business....Just saying.
Are you serious?
I meant to write feet, not legs!
