Devil Amongst The Tailors
- Caroline Kurze
In response to the growing number of freelancers looking for workspaces outside of their homes, London studio Aberrant Architecture have created pub tables that can be adapted into desks by day and games tables by night. The desks were created in collaboration with Benchmark and commissioned by Wallpaper* as part of their Handmade exhibition in Milan. In rest mode each table provides a simple dining surface, but in work mode this tabletop folds open to reveal a bureau-style desk. To transform the desk for play, a removable drawer can be placed on the surface and filled with skittles to recreate nineteenth century pub game Devil Amongst the Tailors. The tables have been crafted both in cherry with a maple surface and in walnut with an ash surface.
